How much would you expect the automatic to cost? There'e efficiency in numbers, and almost every car they sell has an automatic now.

or for that matter: $1000 for 20" wheels = $1000 for A6 ??

Now I know the leather pagkage on a 4th gen was like $800, but really... either the leather is overpriced or the Automatic is really cheap.
It would be nice, if...since the whole powertrain is different -- auto v. manual would be a no-cost option. That may be wishful thinking...

Done and done! I was hapy to see the pricing of the options. Looks better than we expected, but about what fbodfather was telling us.

Done. Mentioned that I wanted the Bumblebee Option to be available on SS. And possibly Bumper Options. SS bumper seems to be groing on me though but I'd like to see the Bumblebee scheme on an SS.

Done, but one questions they didn't ask was overall size. At 15 feet 8 inches, this is quite a large car.

completed the survey. I have to say that the aluminum 20's sound good as an option to me. I dont really care about halo's, nor do I care about the spoiler. So getting the wheels by themselves (which wont have the dark finish of the rs package) sounds good to me.

Most important thing in my mind is we need clarity on what options will be available from get go.

If goal is to position Camaro as THE premium, American muscle car/coupe then GM needs to pull out all the stops to get all the goodies in there as quickly as they can.


I will hold off if need be to get things like the HUD (My corvette driving buddies all say that is THE most useful accessory they have ever had)
Delaying availability of key options will potentially impact GM's profit margin and slow down the rush of buyers

I've been waiting for this thing now since 2002 - so I can wait another year if need be to get the right configuration (but heaven knows I will be twitching to buy one !)
It is important to keep listing options as time goes on, as well. Pulling out a lot of stops at release is great, but a new Mustang will be released shortly after the Camaro, and Chevrolet needs to respond with new features that show the Camaro will compete with both old and new models.

Camaro survey participation

Did you guys get an e-mail from Chevy inviting you to participate in a survey for the packaging of the new Camaro? I just saw it in my e-mail tonight. Here's the link to the survey (hope it works for you guys):

I got the email this morning as well. I went through the survey again but was kind of ticked at the end of it when there was no Camaro specific section like the email said there would be.

Expert Opinion

http://www.chevrolet.com/camaro/insi...y/?id=cid00021

When it comes to the next-generation Camaro, for some drivers it's very, very personal. From trim levels to equipment to accessories, they want their Camaro to be as unique as they are.
At Chevy, we'd like to know what you want in the 2010 Camaro. Your input will help us define available options and configurations and guide us in building inventories.
So make your voice heard. Click here to see proposed equipment and packaging. And for sharing your insights, we'll give you a behind-the-scenes preview of some of the already-planned 2010 Camaro options.

http://www.chevrolet.com/camaro/pop/...y.do?refId=cs1


looks like we get our first chance at choosing options?!

it has some of the pricing for the sunroof and the sound system etc...its not much but its kinda fun?

I believe this has been posted already. Still good information, and something we should all try to take the time to do

Alot of those options get grouped together with the different LT packages on other Chevy cars. The prices usually are high individually so that you can see the price breaks the give you for getting the packages.
