No, nothing on price yet. Maybe on the 15th October on the next IDL. Did any one here any thing if the concept exhaust tips would be getting made?

I don't mean to assume I know what crate motors will be offered. But GM has stated that the LS7 will go away after this year's Z06. So, you might be able to get one of the last ls7's. But the general concensus is the ls7 won't be available for the Camaro.

I should have been more clear in my first response

What I didn't like was that it appears, from that one pic, to be more or less just a piece of plastic that sticks up at an angle with little style to it. In another pic/angle it may look better.

I like the standard SS spoiler because it seems to flow with the lines of the car. I just thought it was 'ok' until I saw some pics of it up close from the top and front angles. From the side and back it looks like 'a piece of plastic that sticks up' at a much more low profile angle than the blade spoiler, but from the top view you can see how it's molded to follow the lines of the car.

I just didn't see that 'flow' in the Blade pic. It looked more akin to taller version of the lip spoiler on the 3rd gens (just a piece of trianglar plastic stuck on the back of the car).

I love the fact that GM is offering so many options. I may only take a few of them (fule door, SS stripes,) but I like the fact that people can customize their cars. I hope they still plan to offer the blue LED interior kit as they mentioned before but not here.

I am really looking forward to this car!

Other than that, I think all the accessories are great, though I will probably only get the small spoiler, but it is great that GM is appealing to more people.

Well none of us can ascertain that it's the same, exact HUD unit... but my guess is that it would be VERY similar... Check out how the one in the 'ignition video' looks to get an idea of how it COULD look.

But that's actually to accomodate the conversion to kilometers/hour. If you notice, there is no small print font for km/h below the large numbers. GM has gone the way of making most of their speedometers with electronic recalibration for English and Metric. When you go into the DIC and hit Metric, it now recalibrates your outside temp display, interior climate control (Camaro won't have climate control), fuel computer, and the speedometer and mileage readout, whether you get a digital speedo or analog.

It's actually pretty cool. If you're going 40 mph, and while you're driving go in to the DIC and switch to metric, the needle on the speedo jumps up to around 60 immediately!
Correct, my GTO has a 200mph speedo because of this feature.

man those ground effects are disgusting, tone that mess down GM. i mean come on, thats so over the top, doesnt even look american, i can understand from a sales point of view, but why make such a beautiful car look like crap for the sake of a few sales?? in the least, bring the effects up, make them look more molded to the car, look at the zr1, i dont even like ground effects, but i think they did a decent job with the ground effects for the zr1. the back of that car with the diffuser and all looks like it from some futuristic concept movie for 2050, where sleek is no longer in style. maybe its because i am corvette owner and i notice the lines alot more, but im still a camaro owner at heart and that does not potray the camaro look.

camaros represent more, they are american muscle cars, dont screw that image up by sacrificing looks for sales

Like I said before.........I totally agree with you. It makes me want to make puke when I see that body kit -- it looks like something the import crowd would love. This looks like one of those cars from that movie "Death Race"!!!!!!!!!
