Really hoping they keep the "Gills" from the G5

Something about the gills on the G5's make my manties wet. Really hoping they keep it or add to it in a good way(allthough I don't see how you could make them better).

Make them fully functional. That would improve a lot on them

I would want them to either be functional or to go away....that is the ONE thing on the car that I am less then pleased with. I have always hated the "fake" stuff that tries to emulate the real stuff.

I like them as well. Not saying GM should keep them, but as long as they make something visually interesting on the sides rather than just a boring panel I will be pleased.

I could care less about the vents not being functional. Yes, real is better, but its just for visual appeal and it looks good so I'm for it. On the other hand, there are other fake vents or fake hood scoops that I would be against.

Aaaa, they were trying to emulate a 69 Camaro, and they did it pretty much perfectly. The 69s have them, too. They said from the very beginning the %th gen was designed to pay o-mage to the 69 Camaros.
