I agree with most of the above. Don't mess with the identity of the car and improve the handling and refinements to details. Do some of the corvette stuff that won't significantly increase cost. It's a great car that could be awesome with a few thoughtful touches.

1. Upgraded suspension package available through GMPP and as a factory option.

2. A lighter Z/28 with a base price that starts with a "3".

3. Exhaust could be more aggressive.

4. "SS" badging on the grille vs. bowtie.

5. Pass along thanks for a great car.

There are only a few things that I would like to be changed on future Camaros:
-lighted homelink buttons
-power passenger seat that raises so short passengers can see
-memory seats and mirrors
-folding mirrors
-bigger visors with lighting that can actually block the sun
-cup holders moved so I can comfortable shift in a manual
-a simpler mechanism to slide the front seats for rear seat access--one lever that both folds and slides

I have a manual 2SS and absolutely love it. Aside from adding more power which the Z/28 will address, my only two suggestions would be:

1. Navigation: add a real touch-screen navigation. Although OnStar offers it through their service, this is not a long term solution for most owners. It would not help us if we decide to discontinue Onstar nor is it cost effective for an owner to keep their service just for the navigation feature.

Just from a competition and market share standpoint, the mustang offers this in both the GT and GT500 so that could be a deal breaker for a present Mustang owner or someone debating between the two models.

2. Grill: Start making the Heritage Grill the standard on the SS or performance models. Not only is the stock grill cheap looking, but there isn't enough differentiation between the SS and non-SS models.

Just my $.02.

some of these suggestions make me kind of glad i haven't gotten my car just yet... =D

so:

1. system/navigation center console
2. after burn tail light effects (like the concept camaro tail lights)
3. optional darker rims, maybe gunmetal and black chrome
4. black interior trim (like the black camaro concept)
5. other interior lighting options
6. more aggressive sounding exhaust
7. functional hood slot for ss model

other than than, the car is flawless.

=]

1st time posting, love the care waiting for the snow to melt!
1. folding mirrors
2. notify owners by mail or on this forum when new calibrations are out.

Thanks for the opportunity to give input!

Please make LeMans Blue available. I know it is not going to be exactly the same formula, but PLEASE, make a blue simular to LeMans Blue. The Aqua Blue Metallic was not the same, and looked like crap in shady or low-light conditions. Leave the pearl effect out of the equation, guys!

- switch the small SS on the grill with a bowtie and put a big SS where the bowtie goes
- Hide away headlights

  1. Rear view camera and/or auto tilting side view mirrors (tilt down to see curbs) when reverse is engaged
  2. Bowtie delete (add big chrome SS emblems instead)
  3. a "3SS" option with factory installed Shorty Headers, CAI, and Sport Exhaust, maybe a cam (for cheap, we already pay an above average premium for the SS level)
  4. Raise the roof 1.5 inches... how many times do car makers bring out a highly stylized concept car that is watered down in production? But this time GM was too true to the concept with the chopped top being a little too chopped (ironic, huh)
  5. Track pack type suspension option
  6. ABL across front dash
  7. Spare tire
  8. 'one touch' seat flip and slide forward (for the rare occasions when somebody is in the back and needs to get out)
  9. HID or LED fog lights that work with RS HIDs
  10. Someplace convenient for my Garmin Nuvi
  11. Lighted Homelink buttons
  12. 'targeted focus' led interior/map lights
Take it or leave it: HUD, Nav, memory seats, folding mirrors, etc... interior materials seem ok to me, I guess I'm not fondling the dash like other people?

P.S. Thanks for the great car - so far!

1) Make it lighter and/or smaller, but keep the v8.

2) Bigger engine for the upcoming competion. (Ford...Dodge ect.)

Make an 18" wheel option on the SS for those of us that understand unspung weight and moment of inertia.

Lose weight

Lose weight

LOSE WEIGHT

Smaller diameter wheels would be a huge help to lighten up the car in the best place. Beside not all of us like 20" bling wheels, so make the 20" an option or a price reducing choice to go back to 18"s.

Track pack option (include the 18" so the car works better) with 3.55 or 3.73. Up valved shocks (bilsteins factory installed?) and increased swaybars rates (not big jump just a refinement). The current SS is a great handling car it kicked the snot out of the Mustang at VIR in C&D (2/2010) but it would wipe up a GT500 with a bit of work.
