1994 was 19 yrs ago man. I'm not comparing those clunkers to today's modern cars. Cars can be lower now and still maintain a decent ride and improve overall performance with a lower COG. no one likes a 3-4" wheel gap. As far as customizing the background and or start up screen..... Why NOT? Personalize it To say something about you or your car. It's another way to modify and make your own. It's silly you said......lol really? Why? You kidding me?

2) temp gauge - I agree, but it's not needed. Like most gauges, if they aren't in the "normal" range, something is wrong, regardless of whether you get a useable reading. All of the other gauges are numbered, then you get C & H. Should be consistent...unless they are trying to match the E & F.

7) the HUD already has it's own brightness control. I don't see your point here.

13) structure isn't the issue. riding differently on different roads is a tire issue.

14) HID's - as noted above, additional cost that many people don't want.

15) bluetooth - road noise doesn't affect bluetooth. Bluetooth is a data connection, outside noise, including road noise has no effect.

And yes, the center console needs some work. The cup holders could be moved. The safety brake cold be lowered. The Vette is a great example. Funny how they can get it right in one car, and totally miss the mark with another car.

Compared to those clunkers, though, the 5th gens have a much improved wheel gap. My 2012 Camaro is stock height, yet there's barely any gap. You'll never get a vehicle from the factory that wouldn't benefit from lowering springs. But compared to cars of "yester year" I'd say our 5th gens have a decent stance from the factory and doesn't look like a 4x4 like my 1994 Camaro did when stock.

The reason why I said why to the personalized startup screen is that it's just one more complexity that 99% of the people buying the cars wouldn't use or appreciate. And it's added cost, even if it's just a software update, there's more to it than just flicking a switch and allowing it to happen. Now you're talking about having a predefined folder which stores the startup and shutdown screens, access controls around those folders so it doesn't open the infotainment system up to an attack, excessive testing to make sure a user-defined startup or shutdown screen doesn't cause the system to crash, etc. As an example, I heard through an IT buddy that he was testing an infotainment system that let you put a name into some sort of input. If you used too many characters not only did it crash the infotainment system but it permently corrupted the hardware to the point that the system was bricked.

I use Bluetooth with top down going 70mph without any issues. Maybe there's something wrong with yours.

As someone who designs interfaces constantly I have to say whoever programmed that was either stupid or incompetent.
I'm pretty sure if I parsed the files I could make something on my own to set a custom background screen.
I have a '12 so I can't experiment...

300 lbs is a lot. 3,900 lbs is a shit ton.

Lose weight all around. If you want creature comforts, go Cadillac.

The content in what I said the 250-300lbs was originally used was that it was not a lot TO LOSE when the car weighs this much. I said 250-300lbs reduction was attainable and someone said that was a "sh*t ton" of weight. I disagreed

I concur. While I understand that the car is 97% perfect, I feel it's important to not rest on your laurels and continue to improve the car. I also have made a few recomendations of what I would like to see done to the next gen Camaro.

How about buttons that are custom cast from a mold of my fingertips. It's all about feel. GM should be able to do this while adding no extra cost.

GM could offer custom car washes by CEO Dan Akerson using only his tounge, clay bar and a squirt bottle of detailer. Those extra little touches are important to me.

I'd like a cooled steering wheel. C'mon, childrens toys have this and no one should have to grab a hot steering wheel in this age of modern technology.

I would also assert that if GM expects me to spend 30K on a performance vehicle they should grant me a waiver, allowing me to exceed the speed limit whenever I feel the need to do so.... tell you what, either that or personal "hot lanes" just for Camaro owners. GM had their biggest profit year ever recently, there's no reason they can't do this, esp. since tax payer assistance kept them from going into bankruptcy.

It's great that 2014 brings a color DIC screen but I'd like to see a color Hi-Def, LED DIC & Head Up screen with user adjustable day-night-eclipse mode, (both lunar and solar).

Give the convertible owners a sunroof option. It's 2013, why isn't this even an option?

A W12 Engine option ala Bugatti.

AWD, standard.

Better incentives and APR's. There is no real reason for not putting 5K on the hood, GM is just being cheap. Also, 0% is available on Hondas, so there's no reason Chevy can't offer that, regardless of your credit.

Lastly, the Camaro is just too expensive. GM should be able to do all of this for under 16K OTD. How are 17 year old kids w/ no credit and no driving experience going to be able to afford the car otherwise? Let's get this done!

Club Racing should be a major focus for the car. I mean road course racing. The 1LE should be further expanded and called "Club Racing" with is own badging, etc. This is a nice product niche for the car and fits the performance targets.

200-300lbs weight reduction can also be attained by eatting healthy and a gym routine. Look in the mirror first, especially for those ppl whom want their car to lose weight start with yourself first.

...without delving too far into responses....250-300 pounds in weight reduction is alot as far as times go around any competitive course. On the drag strip thats equates to .250 to .300 seconds in elapsed time.
