I think it looks pretty good. I'll take a SIM 2SS RS. I was hoping for the LT1 but guess I'll go with the L99.

Would like to see quality pictures like these of an SS that is not an RS.

In the first picture, check out the look on the guy's face as he glances at the tail lights. What's the right word.......Horrified?

Well the "new" rearend is worse everytime I look at it, tail lights, no spoiler, no difuser, no and I noticed I don't care for those rims either but I am sure there are options there. I guess that is the hood for all the SS? Love the functionality but do not like the looks of it either, at least in pic's, sometimes pic's are not the same as in person and I hope that is the case here.

Honestly and objectively, I don't care for the wheels, the taillights, or the the diffuser. The front looks just OK (I at least like the fog light area), and it's cool they went with a hood vent but I really think they could have done a better job with that stylistically; maybe two slightly smaller ones side by side on the cowl like the Hines hex vents.

Overall, I don't hate it by any means but I prefer my 2010, especially with the appearance tweaks I've done to suit my own taste.

Yes, I was wondering how the hood will look with vent, on the 1LE. So many haters on the hood, but it's functional. Release the heat and provide downforce, what's not to like? I think we all just need time to adjust to the appearance changes.

So is the front chrome going to be part of the RS package? I wonder if the RS gets its own grille as well? I really like the Z/28 grille.

I think the non RS 2014 model will look better than the RS version. I don't like those LED strips in the taillights at all. The lights on the white Z/28 (front and back) look much better.

Here is the deal though....when I saw the first 2010 in person I instantly fell in love with everything about it. Loved the wheels, the interior, everything.

With the 2014 you saying that we should take some time to adjust or basically learn to like the changes. That spells failure in my book....but that's me.

I will say that if the lights on the Z/28 are basically the non-RS vs RS, I have a feeling the RS package won't be as popular. There will probably be alot more HID retrofits coming down the pipeline. Either that or lot of non-RS tail light switches coming. Even though both tail lights don't look nearly as good as the previous ones, I think the ones on the Z are better than the others I've seen.

The Z/28 grille does look good. From what I can tell it's almost like a honeycomb design. That pattern should have been on all the 5th gens from the beginning. I always thought the standard grille ('10 - '13) needed much more detail to it.

Well I like it.
Did they announce a power upgrade or change for the L99 or LS3?

Well I clearly get your point,but the truth is "we" can not change what's done by GM, so we must deal with it, and move on. I for one am content with my 2013, and will not be buying any new Camaro.
