1. aftermarket grill (SS emblem compatibale) I really dont like the the stock grill, its boring. somthing similar to this: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=31042
2. bumblebee's exaust tips see thread: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30484
3. LS3, SS, camaro 2010 specifiic inspired emblems
4. center wheel emblems
5. aftermarket spoliers
6. custom engine covers with super-sport or "SS" engraved
7. multi colored chrome, blue, red etc.... (to match color scheme) shifter consoles
8. ss inspired shifters Auto and Manual

thats all I can think of right now. but the grill is a must!! i want SS on the front of my grill so bad. thanks for looking. guys please add so vendors can know what we want. I know the grill and SS being on front of it is a high demand item on this forum.

The new IOM has to be out in the sun I 'spose to fully appreciate. In my dealer's showroom with worn out flourescent lights it looked flat as a pancake, nothing like the flipflop orange they put on the new Ford Raptor..........now thats Orange, and its got bite

none of theese really do anything for me. I would only trust Asanti or strout grilles on the camaro. But you can take your chances and hope for the best. Pedders should have a few exciting accessarys out soon (hood , vents, body kit etc.) http://www.defenderworx.com/index.ph...d=28&Itemid=22 shuld be licenced soon. There is a few others. we'll keep you posted.

thanks but these grills dont fit my style, Ive seen these before, vendors can make some serious bucks if they come up with something else its such a high demmand for them, IMO those grills look their SUV and truck grills....not what Im wanting.

How about a sticker or bowtie emblem that can be inserted into the indented bowtie in the clothe under the hood? It would certainly make the bowtie more noticable.

Lightspeed????

Thank you for starting this thread, I'm interested in learning more about the light speed key. Never heard of this before. How does it work? An can you get one aftermarket?

I feel a possible mod idea comming on.

heh, i think you misread. The light speed comment was in response to amaro_corvette wanting 1 million HP, then ljustin293 1-up'ing him by saying 2- million. camaro_corvette then 1-up'ed again by wanting lightspeed, a theoretically impossible speed for anything with mass, as it would require infinite energy (read horsepower) for any object with mass to reach (and if it did, bad things would happen...according to Einstein that is)

As for the smart keys, well, that's unrelated....lol

see the corvette key for an example

Edit - and if your light speed key comment was an attempt at sarcasm or a joke then that went WAY over my head, and i should slap myself, and reading your post again made me think it might be....

this is what happens when you're at work and your bored out of your mind.....

I second the need for engine covers and parts. We need an overhaul of the black plastic that is in the engine compartment. Chrome or color covers, maybe some old school header covers that fit in there. replace the fuse box, nice placement, but FUGLY as can be. I want the engine to look as good as the car and that is far from true with the stock items.

I would also like to see some creativity with the exhaust tips. give us something with pop, even the transformer ones people are talking about are just round tips with a flat top.

Finally, what about a bowtie for the front and rear with the SS molded into them. That way we dont have to replace the grill and we can still have the SS on the front. Obviously, the SS should be the focus and the bowtie should just be the holder in the background.
