After Market Mods

So do we have to wait till the SEMA show or is there already companies on the web showing after market Camaro upgrades and conversions etc? For example a rear wing spoiler or headlight covers.

Thanks KJ

Expect everything that is available for comparable cars will be available for the Camaro.

Expect a large quantity of performance parts.

Why you would put headlight covers on this car I cannot understand, but compare AVS prices on their website. The headlight lenses are of similar shape with comparison to the Mustang, so it will be priced at a very similar price. I used to have AVS covers on my Cobalt. They flew off on a rainy day. You're better off tinting the lenses, so find out how much that costs from a local shop or check out the bottle tint products you can find at automotive sales places.

Spoilers will vary by company. Many spoilers are universal, so check out any vendor you like to find those prices. GMPP will offer both high and low spoilers.

If someone will manufacture those, then I will strongly consider buying them. That's one of my favorite features of the classic RS.

Mods

I completely agree with you. My dream car is a 69RSZ28 because of the front end. I'm pretty excited about the new Camaro and these mods would be icing on the cake.

That's an area of the aftermarket. Many users have concerns about the lighting. It shouldn't be too difficult to replace the bulbs with a color more to your liking at a shop.

From the factory, you'll get blue or orange, and the orange costs more.

I'm rooting for green interior lighting, but that won't happen, especially without a green Camaro. :(

GM will have a tuned air intake, they say that at chevrolet.com. And in another thread there is a video of magnuson saying they will supercharge it.

Oh man I hope the aftermarket offers a lot for both the V6 & V8 Camaro...

But yeah, not only do I want to see bolt-ons, like CAI, Headers, Cat-back exhaust, etc, maybe a turbo or a supercharger kit would be nice...

I feel compelled to remind everyone that most companies won't have access to the Camaro until we do. They will want to be building kits and products, but without test cars, they really can't do much R&D. At release, you can expect some basics from GMPP and maybe a couple major upgrades. Almost everything else from other companies may take a couple of months.

Well I hope it only takes a couple months for the Camaro.

Jeez the Cobalt SS Turbocharged has been out for 6 months already, and they don't even have a CAI out for it yet. As of now only one aftermarket vendor offers a Cat-back, another offers a down-pipe, but I think it'll take some time for the Camaro as well. Maybe even up to a year.

Good point. No wonder it takes about a year after production for the really good stuff to come out.
