The Last Picture where the Production version is next 2 the concept highlights just how ugly the production Wheels are. The design is similar, but without the depth of the concept's rims, the design is ugly. First thing i'll do when i get mine is buy some a set of deep dish 5 spokes in 20" for the front and 22" for the rear. No chrome Bling Bling crap though!

Wow... now that was one hell of a read! Very nice post. That definately made my day!!

BTW, the picture at the end of the article it the coolest picture I have ever seen IMO. It shows just how close the production, is to the concept. At first i literally could not tell them apart at first. Here it is agian for those who love looking at it (me).

Where I work I have to park between a pole and a pickup and I have to back into the spot because of company orders....

I don't really care that much because over the years I've gotten quite good at it, but my concern is that if the rear visibility is not good then the car will get lambasted in the press for this.

A lot of people here some to be under the illusion that if GM makes a quality car that everyone everywhere is going to automatically realize that the car is good and GM has turned a corner and is on the upswing and making great stuff. I'm only here to say that if the car has even small flaws that there are people out there who will AMPLIFY them into defects of proportions that make my occasional complaints seem like high praise.

There's a lot of people who want to see GM fail and that's why this car has to have as few perceived flaws as possible.

So, if the visibility is bad, there could be a lot of press about it.

So he's expecting a big allotment.
Whoever this member is deserves some props too, so he should come out and show there face so we can thank him too.

Considering the blurbs in the document about the information being confidential, I doubt that's going to happen.

Wow. No spare. "Inflator kit" instead. I guess GM saved what weight they could.

There's a channel in the roof above the doors that drains water away. it runs from the front to back of the roof on each side. They call this a "ditch". It's black on the base models and body colored on the RS.

It means that those strips will be black regardless of body color on non RS models, the RS models the strips will be the same color as the body. We already saw pictures of the engine oil cooler but it apparently will also have a tranny cooler standard on the SS, nice.

I wonder what the 18" steel wheels will look like...is this the rebirth of the GM Rally? Imagine a first year with '67 Center caps and redlines - killer! I wonder what they will look like - would be cool to put on the SS and make a sleeper. Some old Dog Dish caps and make a COPO!

You say "8 more pages..."
That implies there are scans of the reference guide already up somewhere else?
If so, link?

I wonder if this 5 yr 100K warranty applies to the V8 as well. The documentation seemed to only relate it to the V6?

Very good info. I'll definitely have to get that car cover for mine. I wonder if the DRLs can be switched off? I had to rewire the ones on my 4Runner so I can turn them off at will. I like to cruise with my parking lights and fog lights on but head lights off right around dusk. Very sinister look.

There is some good info in there, but very little of this is new info, most of it is cut and paste from the original press release. http://www.chevrolet.com/camaro/explorecamaro/features/
There is a USB port in the center console. You'll be able to plug in a MP3 player or flash drive. There is also an aux port for a iPod or other MP3 player with DRM.

Great info thank you very much. Only disappointment is on the interior. Black, gray and neutral which I assume is beige and Ignition orange inserts which I’m sure go only with ignition orange paint which I don’t want. Guess another beige interior for me then.

Interesting in that they list the reap parking assist for December but not the head’s up display.
