I agree. However that is all there is for people to do since we have already seen every single video and picture of our future cars. I wouldn't mind seeing a section solely dedicated to aftermarket performance mods.

to bigrigmikes post:

1. Satellite antenna( they know people do not like it but in all reality, what are the chances they will change it now.. if they were going to change it they would have done it earlier)
2. cost of the RS package( GM needs the money and they feel like i feel that this is a fair price)
3. Interior lighting - accent packages(they are doing this to keep costs down so they aren't going to change it)
4. Sunroof (they tried changing it, but you would have lost headroom and if they raised the roofline to compensate it would have killed the looks of the car according to scott)
5. Stripes(again to keep costs down and for the simplicity of the install)
6. RS Wheel options(this one i understand but i also understand to keeep costs down at the plant)
7. and oh God, please stop bitching about a Z28. . . Please( ppl want it but this would simply not sell well based on the economy right now so there is no point in complaining about it not being here is what he is saying)

My personal favorite is the people who are bitching about the price of the 1SS and 2SS. Like there is another 422hp beast out there for less. Additionally the ever so common "I guess I cannot afford the new Camaro" threads are just down right sad...and not in a sympathetic sense. Why the need to try to get people to feel bad for you; it's not everyone else's fault you cannot afford. Further, it's kind of raining on people's parades because their joy/excitment for having just ordered is tempered by your need to make everyone pity or feel sorry for you.

I'm pleased I'm not the only one tired about the complaining.

I was upset that Leather wasn't an option on the 1SS. What did I do? Sucked it up and ordered a 2SS.

Some things (like the lack of Blue on the SS) are totally justified for bitching about.

if no one complains then GM won't know what to make better and improve on.


there are always going to be complaints, and a lot of times that is a good thing, because with most every common complaint, "they" take note of that.

I hate everything about the Camaro. Everything about it Sucks. I Love Ford and Dodge. I've also been known to lie a bit.

If anyone thinks that GM is going to change the antenna is ridiculous. What are they suppose to do with it? stick it inside the car then people would bitch because they can't pick up the signal well. . . It is what it is.

And the price of the RS package. . . it may be 1200 bones but damn the sex appeal is worth a lot more than that.

The only justified complaint (my opinion) is the blue on the SS.

There is suggesting improvements via mild complaints...and then there's outright b*tching, and I agree with the OP, stop the b*tching...carry on critiquing -- that's how you improve things.

Don't agree, you, we have to complain. This is how things get better and better.

Look, it's just like saying "we've been on the moon, be happy with that no need to go farther" ... we ALWAYS need to go farther.

I want a Z28, 550HP, I want it fast with a V6 look or better. I won't quit, I want it.

The only justified complaint (my opinion) is the blue on the SS.
I agree that it may be difficult for some of us hardcores to keep reading the same thing over and over but I'm with all those who want to voice their concerns. Why? So that GM can learn from it.

Learning what people dislike rather than like is a far better teacher! At least GM won't be blind-sided when the public sees things that we've already critiqued. Let's assume that the RS package is too expensive (not IMO), at least GM has had the opportunity to bounce it by us. The fact that this option is so popular with those of us who have ordered tells me otherwise.

Let people voice their opinion. You can hate it and you can disagree with it - big deal. People get shot and decapitated in some countries because they do not have freedom of expression or free speech (yes I know this is a private forum) - let's not progress towards the same mentality.
