Yeah, makes me even happier I got mine. I don't particularly care for the refresh. I like the front, but the rear lights would be a deal-breaker

Ahh you saw the dirt! Clear Bra curing. Can't wash it until today, Friday.

Don't use a flathead. Use one of those auto pry tools. I have an awesome one I bought on Amazon for like $6 or $10. It's got a little rubber ring on it that make prying shtuff super easy. And it's forked.

All told, I think I made the right choice for me...I like my creature comforts the Z sounds like something that should only be on the track. I'm happy they brought it back, but it sounds more like the true "2% car"
I like the fact there's a Z/28 and it revs to 7,000 and it's the most HP out of a naturally aspirated car. Don't like tail lights. And I don't think stripped down so bare bones makes sense but I understand that's the Z/28 legacy. My 84 Z was basic but it was also a very nice daily driver. I'm surprised they've stripped this down even further.

Thought the 1LE "last year" was a track car, I like the fact in the 2SS you have the heated seats, my link, etc. I mean, many a German car are pimped out in luxry style, and I'm glad the 1LE has some of that hold the plastic interior. I won't go back two months. ;-)

The bigger issue is that Chevy has a product proliferation problem and, IMHO, needs to do some product pruning. Unless I'm forgetting a model the Camaro has:

LT
SS w/1LE option (but let's call that two):
1LE
ZL1
Z28

Dropping the ZL1 seems natural. I'm confused what to do with the SS vs. the 1LE.

I think your Camaro product lineup is meant to look like this:

LS
LT
SS or SS/1LE
ZL1
Z28

A few things:
1. The 1LE is a track pack for the SS, so that solves that.
2. I hope you mean in the most NA horsepower in a Camaro, because otherwise it's not.
3. Thank god Chevy has stepped it up! At least performance wise this year...

It's going away?? I missed that news...
Hmm, judging from what I saw in other threads, it's a low production color, so I guess I can see the reasoning...but I've always thought I ought to be able to order up whatever basic color I want, within reason. I really wanted to go SGM with the camaro, since my cav was RY already. GM does offer more colors than some other brands (*cough, BMW, cough*) but they could still do more (*cough, KB for all, cough*).

Work has caused a change in my plans. I now have to work nights starting tonight indefinitely. I will be on a rotating schedule so the next 2 weekends are now shot.

A question about NPP when i got my car just to save time i had my dealer pull the fuse,for *hits and giggles today i put it in just to hear the difference since i have never heard it with the flaps closed.The flaps wouldn't close...hmmmm.The car was warm so it wasn't because of cold idle start,is there like a reset time that the car must go through in order to get the flaps to close and then only open at 3500 RPM?

Hmm that's a weird one...have you looked at the flaps? Maybe they seized up/corroded since they never moved? Just guessing here, but I would look for a mechanical failure first.
Newb that sucks about work :( I was really looking forward to seeing your mods

The flaps are open at idle on the Camaro. You should hear a difference when driven.

Ozzy, I make come our for a few minutes. Since my car just got caught in the rain anyway, I don't have to worry about that.

I thought it was 3k, but yeah that's the idea. Certain rpm and idle will open the flaps

The camaro NPP doesn't work like the vette.

In the vette it's quiet until you rev it past some number of rpm's.

In the camaro, the active exhaust is loud on startup then quiets down for neighborhood driving the opens up under throttle like the vette.

At like 3k rpm with Exhaust Commander you can hear the difference when pushing the button. But it's subtle.

The biggest effect is the backfiring on deceleration.

Ok. I found the real answer:

Quote:
The 2014 is dedicated to the “Z/28” purist. This is a track car that makes no excuses. That this car is a full three seconds faster on a track than the mighty ZL1 speaks volumes to its intent. Make no mistake – this isn’t a slap at the mightly ZL1. Far from it. If you want a car that blows other cars off a road course on Saturday and Sunday – and yet will get you to the office in comfort on Monday morning – the ZL1 is the car for you. If you want blistering track performance at a reasonable cost – the 1LE is prescribed. And – if you want to shame exotics on a road course – with an automobile that’s not meant for daily driving, then the Z/28 makes no apologies and may grab you by the collar – shake you silly -- and shout “LET’S GO MAKE HISTORY!”
