I would love to see a supercharger kit/turbo as an option.

Also the Z-28 needs to be lightened with carbon fiber and the carbon fibrer brakes from the Zr1.

I hope GM will continue to offer an affordable model that's still a great car. I was only able to get my Camaro by choosing an LS - and man have I been pleasantly surprised and impressed!

It would be great to have the option of a dual-clutch transmission.

--Build as many as you can sell. Don't do the limited production/dealer gouging crap.

--Offer a track pack. The goal should not be just ultimate grip but, instead, ultimate FUN.
If that isn't a great first post, nothing is. It's good to have you in the community.

-functional airscoop
-ABL across the dash
-climate control
-Interior lighting
-memory seats
-sunroof auto close
-backup camera in mirror
-driverside fuel door
-track pack options
- & finally less weight.
This list makes it sound bad.But I would never get rid of my Kickass Camaro.
And thank you for giving us an ear to listen to.
u wanna add all that stuff and have them make it lighter.. :o)

GM if u do add non performance stuff to the car please only make it an option as people should have choice not to have these extras to save weight

Since Camaro is a performance car all I care about mostly is performance. If i wanted luxury id be lookin at like a caddy so please dont weigh the camaro down anymore with non sense..

-Track Package [Stiffer Springs, Shocks, and sway bars](Camaro needs to handle better then Mustang GT)
- Offer Track Package on GM Performance Parts for us that have the car already
- Find way to cut atleast 100lbs.
- Work over LS3 to bump it to atleast over 450HP
- Work with a supercharger company for a warrenty safe supercharger package (600HP preferably). Ford did it dont see why GM cant. LS3 way better engine then Ford 4.6L

Every magazine and show that compares this car to the Mustang for the #1 spot will pretty much only pay attention to 0-60, 1/4 mile, skidpad, slalom and road course..
I want the Camaro to win #1 spot. Lets please make this happen. Its going to be hard being some are bias. 2010 Camaro SS won in 3 out 2 events. I want 2012 to be a Camaro year again..
Thank You for you time

and sorry people I really want this car to performance. Stay light keep the luxurys out. Or just make a Luxury edition package.. Dont hate me people

Maybe an option for a hounds-tooth interior, and hideaway headlights.

Maybe combine them in a special RS package or something available on all models. I don't know how many people like hounds-tooth interiors on 1st gens, but I think it looks awesome.

Might be a good solution for those who don't really want a regular cloth interior, and maybe don't want the top of the line 2LT or 2SS with leather.

Thanks for allowing us to have input. My wish list would be, in no particular order....

1. IROC model limited edtion
2. Passenger power seat
3. Footwell lighting
4. Fuctional hood scoop
5. After burner taillights
6. Concept tail pipes
7. Gas cap hook that works
8. Throaty exhaust
9. Concept gas cap filler (on top of rear quarter)
10. Track pak

If possible Z-28 that is affordable.

Thanks for building a great car. I love my RJT 2-ss/rs

Oh yeah and hide away headllights!
Living the dream!

- Too much plastic: interior, inside trunk, even fuel filler !!
- Automatic climate control. My last car had it and it's difficult to live without.

Keep fuel door on passenger side. How else can you fill up without smashing your door on the pump ?

Alrighty... another future owner here putting in his $0.02. Rehashing mostly things that have already been said, but another tally for the board for all these options people want may make for a greater chance to see it through. This car is a 10/10. Let's get these minor things fixed to make it a 12/10!!

1) Z-28!!!!!!!
2) Better ambient lighting, across the dash... maybe some kind of light in the back seats.
3) Afterburner concept taillights
4) Round concept exhaust tips, instead of current square ones on the current GFX kit.
5) Color-matching option for GFX.
6) HUD
7) Louder exhaust, keep the current tone, just turn up the volume.
8) This might be a little costly but would love to see it: T-Tops or a Targa top. I'd go for a vert but don't wanna die if the car flips kthx.

As far as any other suggestions... I'd say give a few more luxury options, but NOT AS A PACKAGE DEAL. Individually only. Climate control, rear-view camera, hard-top convertible, leather dash (for those dashboard fondlers) and all the other bells and whistles that come on luxury cars. Only make it an option, to bring some of the luxury market to Camaro. Lots of people on here want luxuries and don't care about performance. Everyone else wants performance and can live without the luxuries.

Oh and by the way, don't mess with the skip-shift. It doesn't take effect when people actually use the gas pedal.

I just want to start off saying I love the Camaro and I look forward to buying a 2011 model whether or not these changes are made, but I would be in heaven if they could be done in the short term!

1) I'd like another blue, anything lighter and more vibrant than IBM
2) Add bluetooth as a factory option for 1SS. It's available in the 1LT, 2LT and 2SS, why not 1SS?

Long term...

1) GM warrantied performance parts such as camshafts and superchargers!

I don't have one yet....but something I would like to have:

1) memory seats
2) climate control
3) painted stripes as an option
4) blue stripes as an option
5) the 21" wheels - make those same wheels in a 20" version - and make it an upgrade option, not an add - what the heck am I gonna do with an extra set of wheels?

The 2SS/RS was a Homerun! Look at the V8 sales. Mustang plant is cutting back to one shift. Reducing workforce by 900, WOW.

I love the car. I can see some creature comforts that could be added. HUD, Lighted MU mirrors, butt warmers, etc. If you want all that, buy the CTSV. I'd want a COPO option. The LS3 is a good start, but the Hotcam turns it into a LS3 480, add headers and high flow exhaust and a good tune, and you're close to 500HP. Short throw shifter, with trans tailshaft bearing to prevent output shaft breaking. Stronger half shafts so if you do get really hooked up at your local track, you don't end up calling a roll back. A affordable, rearwheel drive, honest to goodness muscle car will bring GM back from the brink. It's name is the Camaro! Thanks to GM for finally listening to us yahoos!

Everything should be optional. If you want to get a stripper then cool, if you want all the bells and whissles then you have the OPTION to do so. Then everyone should be happy.

WOW, did this thread fill up fast!!!

First, I must echo Joe's statements (Dragoneye's)...and give my thanks to both GM for bringing this to the enthusiast table and to Elie for gathering this info and taking it to GM. What better way to keep things fresh FOR the consumer than to ask the consumer themselves! GOOD JOB!!!

Now...moving on to my requests.

First and foremost...

WEIGHT! We MUST get the car to lose a couple hundred pounds. Either that, or the car needs to have some suspension upgrades and some steering issues resolved. It just does not have that crisp turning response. It CAN...and I can do it for a relatively inexpensive amount. But, to come from GM that way?

2nd.... dash ABL...just get it done. It's unfinished...and it's obvious. It clearly NEEDS to run across the dash!

3rd. Interior lighting...I complETELY agree that the rear seats need some sort of lighting. Also, I'm upgrading the inside light to a LED so I can actually see what I"m looking at when I turn the light on at night.

4th. Dash (right side). Just to freshen it up. It's kind of a large space...and I think it would benefit from a face lift.

5th. Passenger power seats (standard on the 2LT and 2SS but as an option for the other models).

6th. Memory seats.

7th... move the location of the usb port to somewhere where it's out of the you can still use the center console if you have a thumb drive that you stick in there. right now, if I have a thumb drive in there, it sits up off the bottom of the console. But, I'd need to put somethign under it if I wanted to place items in the console.

lights on the homelink buttons so you can find them in the dark

glove box light
