Ok after looking at the headlights the bulbs don't look like regular halogens and look at the silver ring around the bulb inside the plastic, looks like the halos we saw on the SS convertible

Front plate even looks good, maybe I will be legal after all

before i pass final judgement we got like a weird angle insteas of a straight front picture...also i would like to see what the golden bowtie would look like on this

one of the things hurting this is the angle of the picture and it lacks color and its too black

silver grille with golden bowtie would improve its blandness

Looking closely at the second picture, you can tell that the upper grille isn't quite production ready yet. There's a gap between the top of the grille and the bottom of the body. But at least it looks like it will be an easy rip'n'replace job to put something that looks better there, like polished or powdercoated billet.

If the production grille comes out looking that cheap, I'm pretty sure it will be one of the first mods I do...c'mon aftermarket - lots of money to be made here! The rest of the car looks great but the plashit grille will have to go.

Oh, and it looks like the intake is open but just feeds to the radiator like it was part of the grille. Hmmm, leaving the ability to mod and route air into the airbox from in front of the radiator....have to think about that if ram-air isn't offered as an option.

Holy crap guys! I am flipping out! I just felt the blood rush in my heart! I love the headlights, the big rims, and those brakes... gotta have some good stopping power for all that go-fast adrenaline.

And it sounds like some really don't like those lights, but like the ones on the silver, but they're the same.

As for the black grille, I don't think silver would be a good idea. I certainly wouldn't want it on my blue Camaro... just wouldn't look right. Plus, and it would have to be seen in person obviously to make a good judgment, but I think silver on the grille might make it appear less wide, since the black seems to blend through pretty well, and some already think the grille isn't wide enough. What would really be nice is if Chevy gave us the option of both colors for the grille, and maybe even one or two more. Certainly couldn't take much to just paint them over...

Anyone ever thought that the halos could have been reserved for the V8 models? ehh?

I know just throwing it out there..
