It is not an option on 2LT and 2SS, it is standard. Please don't spin it!

I gave up waiting on the HUD and fixed ABL to avoid these ugly overpriced things.

If they do ever release a HUD for the Camaro you should be able to buy it separately and have it installed (like the 4 pack gauge cluster). Unless it will need a significant change the dash anyway

Even on cars where it's "standard" you still have to pay a $370 price increase because they added these things.

well, yeah, 2SS is really just a 1SS with more options, I mean SS is the model, there's no specific Badging for 2SS vs 1SS. Call it an option, model, whatever, but you can get camaros w/o the park assist, so it is optional.

Back up sensors and MSRP

$10,000 OVER MSRP!!! Whaaaat! That's outrageous, no that's downright criminal. I have a suggestion to anyone in that area. Fly out to Michigan, buy your Camaro for MSRP or 1%-1.5% under. Arrange to have the Camaro shipped home and fly back home. Then go on a vacation with your wife to Hawaii for 2 weeks with the $6000-$7000 that you saved.

As for the back up sensor dots...no big deal to me. In fact, I may just get my dots chromed (just kidding). But it is interesting to note all the negative comments, while no one objected to the STINKIN, BUTT UGLY dealer's decal glued on the bumper. Holy #@*$! I refused delivery on my CTS when the Caddy dealership did that.

Nice............they call it an option and then bundle it with stuff that you really want!!!!! They must have learned this tactic from the cell phone companies. Just another way to get you to pay more money.

Don't ever pay more than MSRP!!!!!!

It wasn't enough for Curry to put just the license plate bracket with their name but they also put that horrible Curry sticker above the lights also.....

When you call something an option, it gives people the impression that they can opt out. I consider it a standard feature on the 2LT and 2SS just like leather. It is not optional on those models.

Sooooo if you get a black car I think you're still in the good since it'll all just blend in. Possibly the Imperial Blue too right?

... bleh and i would be getting white. Great just great.. natural door (bumper) dings!

LOL, j/k I'm not that upset bout it.

Oh well, I don't have them on mine anyway

Though I'm sure someone will want these and some don't, I prefer not to. I don't have them on my 2005 Silverado Crew Cab and seems fine to park. My 2000 Camaro is much easier to park so I would assume it would be about the same for this model. It wouldn't be a deal breaker, but it's another plus for my future 1SS.

I have no problem parking my 98 either but the 2010 is a bit more difficult. I'm sure, as with any car, the longer people own their vehicle the easier it becomes to park.

I'm not crazy about the looks of them either....BUT, had all the Camaros from day one in April had them, we wouldn't even be having this conversation. I doubt that anyone pre-ordering last winter would have cancelled thier order when they found out the car was being made with back up sensors....just sayin....

Reckless Reverse

Anyway, I've only had my Baby since Saturday (9/5/09) and am still NOT used to judging the rear

They look typical of the backup sensors and glad they matched the paint color.
