Look at Ford's backup sensors.

Oh yes. It could've been much worse.

Doesn't bother me at all.

And in fact, having the backup sensors included pretty much seals the deal for me - I'll be ordering a 1LT w/ SRJ.

Maybe in the 2011 edition, the SS models will get similar sized LED reverse lights instead of the rectangular ones. Then it would be ... ... or S S.

Making a big deal about nothing, again.....

I think it's great they're adding features already, especially considering the poor visibility.

No kidding. 4200+ posts and a member for a year and a half? I'm pretty sure Xanthos is addicted to this car, with or without the parking assist.

It only takes one dumb consumer with more money than brains to continue this "fair market value" BS.
Hopefully these rip off dealers will have to sit on these Camaros for several months and then start getting real with their prices.

Good point. We have mentioned this quite a bit in the past but we keep forgetting about the new members. DO NOT PAY MORE THAN MSRP!!!!

It means "Rut Roh!" because that's what they say when you are about to hit something.

Not a good look, anyone paying 10 grand over is paying too much. What if I said - you could make 10k by just waiting around for 5 months? Does that seem like a good deal? Then why would a dealer demand that? That cheap trick might work in April but I doubt anyones payin over msrp goin into winter - any dealer who thinks like that doesn't give a hoot about customers - just their bottom line _stay away from curry..just my opinion

Those are pretty good. I thought it was going to be the silver dollar size ones, but that looks smaller than a quarter.

Does it have the little red yellow green light in view of the mirror like the other stuff?

Oh hell no!

Looks like the ass end of a Ford Explorer! IMO, those have no purpose or whatever on the clean lines on the Camaro.

This option should be a deletable option..not opinion this time, fact. I would NOT want that on my car!

Not hating...I do love my baby smooth bumper.

Please try and get a picture of the whole rear if possible. I'd like to see the entire effect.

Seriously, those sensors would fit / work perfectly in the diffuser...

I think they were getting complaints about visibility issues...Glad mine doesn't have them





But for those that have to get used to them, they could be worse!!

It is an optional item! Unfortunately, this option is bundled with a bunch of other cool options like bluetooth, USB connectivity, and leather seating in the 2SS's case since you can't buy a 1SS with just the convenience and connectivity package.
