I still want to see whats up on the dash between the two main instrument clusters (DIC)?

EDIT: I hope the steering wheel has an aftermarket replacement that will keep the the airbag sensors and computer from throwing a fit.

Wow, I like it! I'm really glad to see some more "spy" pics emerging! I too would like to see a pic of the gauges lit up. The wheels definitely look on the small side:( Maybe those were some they had lying around I'm sure larger wheels and tires will be available on the Z/28-SS models.

It really looks to me like that is a computer display on the passenger side. Just look at how rounded the edges are, and the font is 100% "calculator" font. If you look at the images eatmytireshreds just posted, there's no hole there.

I could certainly be wrong though. It really doesn't make any sense to me to have a display over there. Plus, the style does not match the rest of the car. I'm curious to see where they go with it.

Material/layout concerns:
I'm guessing that the shapes we see are final. material and texture is likely to change.

Push button start:
This has been discussed at great length here before, many of you weren't around for it. Please search for the thread and continue the conversation there. Nothing wrong with reviving a dead topic.

When will we know <insert item here>?
No later than Indy (Sept)

Not the real headlights
just needs to be said with every set of spyshots.

Nice pix. Interior looks the same at the pix we saw months ago, but will less tape and dust on the dash. Overall look of the interior has my approval. Production may proceed.

Any ideas of what those buttons on the column shifter (cruise control type thing) are? And is it just me, but when I zoom in on the left side column shifter thing it looks like it could possibly say menu on it, maybe for control of the center display between the tach and speedo.

I dont know if anyone else has noticed this difference but on the pics on the first page it appears there is 4 total different positions to shift into(not including park), with 2 other boxes greyed out as if they would be for a higher end model engine/tranny combo. And if you compare that to the older picture on page 4 it seems there is only 4 different positions to shift into, only this pic doesnt have the greyed out boxes. Any thoughts?

Close, that switch transforms it back to a '77 Camaro or into a giant friendly robot.

Well, if you're the only one...does that mean that the bold statement is false? Unfortunately, the design is not going to please everyone. But out of 115 replies - I feel it's quite obvious that there is an overwhelmingly positive response to this interior.

It's more likely (and this is just me) that it's just a glossy green piece of paper taped to the dash. Would be neat to have a little screen over there, but naw - I don't think it is.

Don't think I'd seen the shot of the key before... looks like a spring-hinged design... very nice. First time I ever saw one of those was a Mercedes key I saw about 10 years ago. Always thought it was a great design.

I love those tires

1) The radio looks like it is moved forward so you can reach it without doing stomach crunches. (I have a flat stomach now after driving a 2001 mustang.)

2) The fat tires on the Camaro are probably base V6 tires. However (me personally), I would drive the V8 Camaro with those exact tires because most roads I have to drive on are under construction and extremely messed up. 18 inch rims could turn into an oval shape if you're not careful.

3) As someone else said, those pics look the same as before. I wouldn't assume anything.

You know what?

To save weight and money, I would have really liked to see GM put the window and side mirror controls in the center console. I've seen that more and more with newer cars and I tend to think it's just wiser to do. You don't have as much work to do by putting the control box in the door, adding the wiring, etc. It's just easier and more cost effective to put it in the center console.

That little switch to the left of the 12 volt power supply (which I think should be hidden......) might be the power window switch?

Not to mention pretty retro to the F-body design.

If you were talking about the switches on the end of the stalk, my wife's Jetta has something similar, and it's used to toggle the little information display between screens.

I was thinking the same thing. Didn't we see some quotes from GM stating that the final interior would look different than the spyshots of the mules?

I'll search when I have some time.

Well I just saw this now..... you guys already filled up 6 pages, LOL!!!!

But overall from these new shots I can say..... I think the interior is just fine.... but that centre console..... I dont like it at all.... that probably the only part of this car that Im gunna have to re-do on my own.

But this Camaro really is gunna be something else inside/out.

Good work GM..... just change that centre console, LOL!

Other than those smallllllll gripes, this is a huge improvement over the earlier editions we have been seeing. Now... if we could just get past the snoozy look of this test model. SO far, I am just bored with the exterior. I think its the headlights and lack of paint-flare which this body style obviously must have... Colors will make this car or break this car... Too bad gas prices are going to be 4.50/gallon before it hits the market... This car might be DOA if it can't get past that... Remember the Judge...GTO's death brought on by OIL/Gas problems....
The GTO Judge/all muscle cars were doomed by bad MPG, yes. However, they were also doomed by higher insurance premiums. I don't think the new Camaro is "DOA" if gas is 4.50 a gallon. The old muscle cars got about 8-10 MPG, not 20+ we will no doubt see on the new Camaro. I don't know about the rest of you, but this new Camaro will be my weekend or cruise night car, not a daily driver....especially when it SNOWS!

I would love to see a different center console, and with a nav screen in it. This one is huge and bulky and uses a lot of unnecessary room. I'm not too sure about the speedometer and tach housings, but I don't think those are going to get smaller or change, , but it's not a big deal. I'm sure I would get used to them.

Indeed. It costs less to fuel new muscle cars now then it did back in the day, once inflation and fuel economy has been taken into account. Though that may change at $4.50-$5.00/gallon.

Those on the malibu are pull-type paddles. I thought at first too that you push them with your thumb but those things are just there to let people know which side does which.
