Sunroof looks good...but as others have said, I wanted the reverse mohawk.

Former Rides:

1966 Chevelle (1971-2007)
1970 Chevelle (1974-1991)

Spring of 2009....2SS/RS - Red Jewel Tint with Black Rally Stripes...
the wait is excruciating!

I guess it really is to each his or her own, but I think the sunroof looks good (perhaps that's because I ordered it). Take a look at the fifth picture (front end offset shot). The like of the scoop on the hood perfectly aligns with the raised sunroof. You can see it again in the 11th picture (side shot). To me, it is great design and it accentuates the lines of the car when it is opened. If you really want to complain, ask why there are no T-tops.

Thought the torque gauge was only replaced in the auto trans.

Am I being selfish here ordering a manual SS when my wife wouldn't be able to drive it because she only knows how to drive automatics? I've offered to teach her but she refuses. So to make my wife happy I would have to pick an automatic and to me getting the SS automatic is a waste, so I would probably just get the V6 automatic fully loaded for the same price as I can get the 1SS. So it is either the 1SS or 2LT/RS??? What should I do? I would not be unhappy with the V6 since I like the look better, however I know I will miss the power of the V8 and the fun of a stick. I'm torn as to what to do here...
I say get the 1SS,there is nothing like driving a manual trans V8. My wife knows how to drive a manual but refuses to, I will be getting the 1SS manual.
I would rather have the fun of the manual trans standard than pay for other toys on the LT. I agree on the look, I am not a fan of the nonfunction mail slot SS front, the standard nose looks better IMO.

I would like to see an RS with the foglights as the DRL's as planned. I think it would look nice when the foglights and the halos are on at the same time. We will be able to tell from 300 feet away if an oncoming Camaro has the RS package or not.

You have to like it - you ordered it on your Camaro. But that sunroof looks bad and detracts from an otherwise beautiful red Camaro RS. The proof of this? Your eyes are drawn to the ugly sunroof in every pic that shows it open. The pics where it is closed let you appreciate the whole car better. I don't care how functional you think it may be; the car looks so much better without it.
it's all a matter of personal taste.....some think it looks ugly....some thing it looks great. That is pretty much the exact car that I ordered and i'm so stoked that I got the victory looks hot!
I finally settled on a name for her....."Bonnie"

Everything is better in a Camaro.......puts a smile on my face everyday.....

Like it has been mentioned here before. It is a matter of personal taste.
The good thing is that if you don't like it open, simply retract it and have it semi-open in the initial position. Is not like you are having this gigantic wing in the rear. Oh wait, GMMP is offering a gigantic aftermarket wing that in my opinion looks ricey discusting. Now that's something I will not have on, braking the curvaceous lines of my SS.
I still ask if anybody that has seen one in person with moonroof, if they can provide me with some dimensions. Thanks.

Thanks Tran! Great pics'. I like the sunroof the more I see it. If they only kept the mohawk I'd consider it.

Conforms why I didn't do the sunroof. It looks like crap. You can see the deflector and that huge piece of glass floating out in space. Yikes....and it takes away from those wonderful roof lines. Notice that in NONE of those pics did you see an over the top shot to get a good look of the roof? That's because it's been uglified
