Something many of you could try out.
why do people get offended if you don't say the rosiest thing about the car...

this is a site dedicated to camaros...not pink volkswagon beetles we don't all have to be so nice and uptight all the time ....

This is america why is everybody worried about being so politicaly correct why can't we have an opinion and thats that

I'm not advocating someone shouldn't have an opinion, but the tools that have been posting since release day all the 10000 reasons they are going to buy a Challenger or GT500 instead of Camaro are what gets us a little sick of hearing it.

So you think the bumper is not great...on your computer screen....and that makes you want to buy a Mustang instead. Who effing cares, go write a blog to MM&FF or whatever it's called, this is a Camaro forum where we have great reputation of being pretty positive (about the car that is). That's all I'm saying.

Now that being said, I do agree with some opinions that the decklid is looking pretty cluttered, but I don't see any way around that with the industry standards on the taillight and the obvious crux on the XM that we have in today's society. It doesn't mean I want a Mustang now, it just means, "well that's a cluttered trunk, and it takes away from the rear end a little".

See the difference?

then whats the point of writing anything since like you say nobody cares...its a forum to discuss opinions...

and who said i was going to buy a mustang??

just because some people have a certain taste doesn't make them tools...

this thing still looks like an iver and we really haven't seen a completely done ss...that front bumper makes the ss look incomplete...i can gaurantee reviewers will question why they changed the front bumper and that its less attractive

hmmm I think they said the same thing about the CTS when it came out. too unique/ugly. but I believe it's one of their best selling cars.

not talking about the new cts. . .I'm talking about when they debuted the CTS back around when matrix reloaded came out. . .all the car mags and everyone said it was polarizing and ugly/unique. . .now it's one of the best selling caddies out there.

most people feel the changes were for the better. my biggest concern isn't the bumper. it's the interior. . .but that was perfected in my book.

PLEASE, GM, if you're listening, don't put that there....find some other way, almost any other way, to mount the OnStar antenna.
I agree that the rear decklid is a bit busy....


O great, wise, and powerful Fbodfather...would it be possible to merge the 3rd brakelight housing and the XM antenna? I think that if you could merge them, a single unit would look better. Just an idea..

I want to thank you and the rest of the Camaro team for all your hard work. The car is awesome!

How about incorporating the Third brakelight into the lip spoiler? I might just remove the third brake light enclosure and make the bowtie the third brake light.

Basically folks are nitpicking, me included. That comes from wanting the car NOW. In a year or two we'll start seeing there's too many Camaro threads.

those car mags are stupid then because when the cts first came out it brought cadillac back...before cadillac was viewed as cars for old people...

I personally hate it! SS front bumper is still a REAL deal breaker

However, it must be cool to drive
