Thanks

No, the 1st to 4th skip feature is only on the V8 to help avoid the gas guzzler tax

Maybe I'm being picky but why does GM always seem to put the steering wheel volume control on the right side of the steering wheel? The radio control is already on that side. I find it's a lot more useful on the left of the steering wheel, especially if you right hand is on the shifter.

is that what the key is really going to look like ? I am not too familiar with what the GM keys have looked like on the newer cars. Do you think they will ever do a push start, keyless go in the Camaros like they do on the Vettes ??

I havent read anything about it.
I think competition mode is where Stabilitrak will let you get a little sideways if you are on a track for example, but still reign you back in if you get TOO sideways. There's full OFF if you want to do whatever you want.

Haven't heard of a launch control for auto's. I assume most/all with be brake torquing.

Does the Camaro have a Homelink Transmitter for Garage Door Openers, houselights, etc.?

Looking at the page discussing the sunroof, it looks like there are 3 buttons on the right hand side. Are these buttons for the Homelink?

Yes, but not all trim levels get it. I know my 1SS isn't won't have it. :(

Press the button twice and you get competition mode where traction control is off and stabilitrak is still on to keep you from wrapping your ride around around a tree. If you hold the buttoin down they're both completely off

i like the engine oil life system, my acura rdx had that and you could check oil life percent and actually would go about 10-12 k between oil changes on full synthetic oil, had a 4cyl turbo and i never ran it hard though, just have to wait n see what the v6 will do. but it should save on guess work to when you change oil and save money, thanks for the doc

Yes the more information the better! I am the Internet Sales Manager and I spend at least 30 to 45 minutes on each delivery with my customers. I want them to be hands on with all the features and try my best to make it entertaining. I will pre-program in the dealership phone number in ONSTAR and when I demonstrate how to make a call with a stored number I call the receptionist and order drinks and food like I am calling in a fast food order for pickup. One of the receptionist picked up on the enthusiasm I was trying to generate and started running out to the car with bottled water and telling the customers the pizza was on the way. But seriously any dealer that does takes your hard earn dollars should be expected to spend as much time as you need to get comfortable behind the wheel. If your salesperson knows less than you about your new Camaro, you need ask the Manager to assist them or train them, heck we have had only 4 years to prepare for this launch, I am eading every day and studying everything I can soak up on the Camaro, I think I am more excited than my customers!

I couldnt tell by looking at that.. maybe I missed it.. Does it have auto-climate control or only manual fan/temp adjustments?
