2011 Options

There are probably some other options that I've missed but these are the future options we know about, considering the extended 2010 model year at least some of these will actually show up in the later 2010's. Feel free to add to the list.

White exterior (summer 09 actually)
HUD
Navigation (rumored 2011)
3.73 rear end
Convertible! (2011-2012)


Since we know all of the current options, pricing and all it seems there is no longer enough speculation on the board so I'm actually wondering what else people would want aside from the obvious of being able to buy the Camaro and/or these options right away or a Z28, or a blue SS. Personally there's only one big option I'd like to see myself, that's an option for Recaro seats like the new CTS-V has (not standard Recaro's as that's easy enough to take care of with standard aftermarket but specifically seats very similiar to the CTS's). So what do you all think of that, and what's your dream option not offered?

For those who haven't seen them, here's a pic of the seats I am talking about.

Is the 3.73 rear end going to be available on the Auto???
I know there offering the 3.23 I believe, but is there going to be anything more aggresive for the Auto's gearing??

Quicker acceleration (1/4 mile times, etc) but mpg's will suffer, especially on the highway. You'll have a lower top speed as well but I really doubt that'd be a problem unless you are racing on a high speed track.

Well, going by their past record here's what's going to happen:

Your will save your pennies and anxiously await for the arrival of the 2011 model to get the gearing you want and the options they have bragged about.

The day before ordering opens up someone will leak info that some options they were bragging about were going to be pushed off to the 2012 model year and that black and red paint were unavailable on the SS but they would introduce a special Plaid paint scheme with lime green accents.

I'm trying to find out if that old adage about "squeaky wheels" is true.

3.73 would be nice for the auto, but for the M6 I would rather have the 4.10's. Oh well, 3.73's would work for me if they were already installed. Regarding the HUD - I can't wait.

Respectfully - let's not get too squeaky

I think 3.73s would be a good compromise between fuel economy and performance. If you want (and if they actually fit) I'll trade you my 4.10s out of my Trailblazer SS for your 3.73s.

Actually it may not be fully confirmed yet, but it's been talked about as a likely 2011 option with HUD.

its doubtful you'll be able to swap those out. the rear differentials have to be the exact same size. a 528i,a 540i, and the M5 (all E39 chassis's, the body's are near identical) have different size differentials:(

but hopefully u'll have better luck though

I’d like to see:

- two-tone interior option like red/black
- Alcantara seating surface
- Or better yet Recaros
- Smart key so I can keep the key in my pocket and start the car

I'm with you on that one. It isn't exactly new technology.

This is a hopefully simple addition that I would desperately want for my 2011. I love the look of the orange interior, but just can't get past the fact that it's orange.

I have visions of a cyber gray SS with red calipers (I realize that I'll likely have to take care of this mod) and a two-tone black and victory red interior. Please make the vision of my dream car come true GM!!!

Otherwise, I'll just have to settle for a plain black interior, which is nice but unfortunately kind of bland for my tastes (especially since I'm not getting a flashy exterior color).
