Now all you need to make sure is you stay out of prison, 80 mph in this car feels like 50... gotta check that speedo in the HUD often.

oh yes. this bad boy has close to supercar performance..these gen6 camaros are the real deal for sure.
i know if something is fast having owned superbikes most of my life.
ofc this would never hang with a liter bike but would keep up with a 600 i rekon.
that alone is an amazing feat.
damn i love the way it changes gear in sport mode. the pop from the exhaust is incredible

Congrats & welcome.

It’s hard to put into words the difference between the two generations. The interior changes alone, IMO, are worth the price of admission.

You chose your username very well

Glad to see you're sharing in what we've been raving about all these years, and even better you're able to do it in Sweden. What tires are you running? Hope not the original Goodyear runflats, because if yes, you'll be in for an even nicer surprise when you replace them with something better.

pictures coming soon.
one thing i love so much is when you have it in sport mode the speed of the gear changes when pushing it is amazing. plus that pop it makes as it shifts.
one thing lads when i save have the exhaust in race mode and the magneride set to auto does the magneride stay in sports mode?
so so happy with this car. used 2 tanks of gas already. such a drivers car it makes you just wanna get out as much as possible.
never owned a car that has done this.
one other thing can you set it so the door mirrors fold in when the car is locked?
love the dual zone climate control aswell.
only fault i have with the entire car is the gps doesn't display the current speed limits. my hyundai does this and it's a great thing to have

Awesome comments, thanks
When you lock a specific drive mode setting, it becomes independent of the overall drive mode. Keeping them on "Auto" will make them change with the mode, and these are all independent of each other no matter what, so yes, if you set Suspension to "Auto", it will follow the drive mode (Tour/Sport/Track/Snow) even if you keep Exhaust in "Track" (which is incidentally what I do, too).

Your mirrors are manual folding, unfortunately GM decided to save a few bucks on mirror motors with the Camaro. At least you guys living in the EU get folding mirrors, the US unit is smaller (which looks better), but fixed (gotta be careful where you park). One thing the mirrors can do is automatically tilt down when you are in reverse, which helps you see the curb or lines much better when parking.

The speed limit is displayed on my car both in the gauge cluster (cool) and in the HUD (even cooler), but this requires 1) the factory navigation option and 2) availability of local maps for the nav.
