Why doesn't the Camaro Match

Why don't any of the GM accessories match the car, for instance if you want a Blue car with the RS/SS package you get red emblems and what if you want Grey stripes, does that really match

Does anyone know if we will get matching color accessories from GM? It would be a shame to have such a beautiful car such as the Camaro looking like Bozo the clown with all the mismatched colors.

Grey is a nuetral color....goes with any other color. If they made all accessories in every color, it would make the Camaro cost even more. If you want to personalize it that much, do it yourself.

I since a little anger in your post, I am just saying Blue with Red emblems are not appealing. I am a huge fan of the Camaro and I don't want it to disappear as it has done so before, I am just saying that for people who aren't going to do aftermarket. The first thing I do when I get the car is get it modded, so I will get it personalized.

no anger....its just that they can't give everyone exactly what they want, there would be too many combinations to keep the price down.Some things you are just going to have to do yourself.

I agree! In the forty years or so I've been buying/driving cars I have not seen (that I can recall) emblems that were color matched to the exterior of a car. This one really blows my mind, I've heard of nit picking, but wanting color matched emblems is just beyond the pale. If it really bothers the OP that much, they sell color matched touch up paint at auto supply stores.

These kind of questions are a bit premature. Performance, handling, stripes, emblems, price....Just wait, you'll like it.

Is anyone reading these post before they submit a post themselves? I hope that you aren't thinking that I have a problem with the car personally. I can't wait to get one, as I have stated that once I get my Camaro I am getting it modded so there isn't a problem with me. I am just saying for others who don't plan to or wont be able to afford to mod their car. I know that GM is in a fragile state and I wouldn't want to see it turn into a failure over simple things.

The cheapest solution to changing the color of emblems and such would be to order touch up paint from the parts dept that matches your car, pulling off the emblems, painting them yourself and putting them back on. We have a bunch of Tahoes and Silverados with body-colored bow ties and they look great in my opinion. You just need half a brain and a steady hand to correct that issue.

Well...I don't think anyone is really use to getting everything how they want- most zombies like that will just purchase off the lot. Unless you are a lifetime Rolls-Royce, or Bentley customer....you shouldn't have a problem.

First and Formost, You can't get certain color stripes on every color. They have already stated that they are on specific colors. Personally I think this means that they will release SURPRISE stripe colors later but its uncertain.

Its like interior colors, go to any manufacturers site, you cant get certain interior colors with certain exterior. Same applies to stripes.

Most of the high performance trims of alot of modern models have a red 'S'

think...

Audi. Infinity. Acura. im sure im missing something. Even BMW's 'M' has some red in it. WITH 2 SHADES OF BLUE!!!

We thank you for thinking of what others may dislike about the car but as of now you are the first to bring up these concerns. Nobody in the history of the automobile has ever thought that different colored emblems made the car look like Bozo the clown.

I'm sure many will agree Blue with red looks like crap

especialy when you add white to the mix.......NOT!!!

Actually your wrong you can get stripes on any color car. But the STRIPES colors' are limited to white and grey, from factory. Expect dealers to gave more colors.

There will be several colors of stripes that you can purchase thru dealers.

As to the emblem (SS in red when it's an RS as well...) -- think about this:

The Eurosport Celebrity -- and several Cavaliers had red emblems and inserts in the body side molding -- and it looked good on just about any color.......

We put the Red Bowtie on many vehicles -- regardless of color.

The bottom line is that emblem protocol is set early on -- with a close eye on cost.....thus, there would not be 10 different SS emblems -- simply because of the cost involved.

(go talk to the owner of a 1978-1981 Z28 that's trying to replace emblems -- there were several different colors - no one makes replacements...and it makes the owners crazy!...)

I think of the red emblem as a performance color. Brembos are commonly red, and many other companies use red emblems to identify performance tiers or trims.

If you really want to change emblem colors, then you will have to paint them. Once production comes around, I'm sure a lot of really great how-to threads will appear involving this emblem and other customizable features.
