Talking I have a question for you!

Tonight I pulled into the local supermarket and parked alone. When I came out a guy in a RS (Inferno Orange) pulled in next to me. We talked and admired each other's cars (I have a 1LS). I got a good look at his car - it was beautiful - I love the color!

Just wondering - on either side of the back up lights it looks like there are 2 holes (ports) that are capped? What are they for? It's probably a silly question, but I'm a newbie -go easy on me please!

Me!

Backing up into a parking space is not all that easy with these cars. I'll probably end up putting a back up camera some day.

You find a way to crap on everything you don't have just to sleep at night, huh? It's a recurring theme in the majority of your posts.

My wife (if I ever let her drive it). Already had to replace the mailbox twice due to her backing over it.

False.

They're optional for 1LT and 1SS as well.

when i traded in my evo for a 2lt, it was the first one with hud. I told the dealership i didnt need hud and that i used my gps for my speed. (closer to the road to see while driving) afterwards the salesperson said as soon as i said that and i took it for a test drive i would be hooked. damn if he wasnt right!!! lol.. i even decided to trade up for having the back up camera. (the 1le package was just icing!)

Backup sensor. The closer you get to a bush, wall or something, the faster it beeps. If you are almost touching, the beep turns into a constant steady high pitched tone like a sound on a heart monitor when the heart stops beating. Very handy if you back into a parking space. This plus a backup camera make a fantastic combination!

Yeah, I love my back up camera and sensors. I've been meaning to bring something up though about them moving the camera screen off of the mirror and into the radio. I couple years ago at a Target, a dude in a Lexus? Vert was backing out and burried his head down looking at his radio screen watching his back up camera, he nearly ran over me because I wasn't on screen, was next to the fender. He didn't notice, he didn't care, now I know he's a dumbass who bought a Lexus in the first place and not a superior driver like us Camaro folks, but I think the screen down there on the new Camaros is a terrible idea. It causes you to pay attention to the whole environment around you, which should be the basis for operating a car any time.

Interesting story 2012-1822, I was in a dealer the other day and the salesman was telling a similar story you have and that the screens in cars aren't going to be offered in few years. Whoever regulates the screen being allowed on the dash (FCC?) is in agreement that the screens cause too many accidents. No one turns their head anymore, it's a tool to be used in addition to, not substituting!
We'll see how true this is soon I guess.

I have the back-up camera, and while I do not dislike it, I do not use it. My wife uses hers regularly in her 12 Equinox. Just depends on ones personal preference.
