    Things I like:
    - Red Calipers
    - NPP exhaust (which would probably get replaced anyway)

    Everything else I don't really care for.

    14 Corvette Z51 7spd

    But they also have the fogs. I suspect that there will be people retro-fitting that...

    I'm about function as much as I am about looks.

    Another nit-picky complaint...

    Where I DO want LED's is in my tail lights? Every car in North America, even bargain basement eco-doosh mobiles have LED tails. This car does not...

    One of the aesthetics I LOVE about my Caddy is those two vertical rows of LED's for the tails.

    Again, nit-picky I know.

    I'm not a huge fan of individual led tail lights. I like the uniform look much better, like what the audi's, bmws, mustangs, chrysler 200's etc have. And yes, the SS should have them. I'm glad they didn't decide to bring over the clear tails. They are hideous.

    Im also not a huge fan of the plastic chrome crap especially around the lower grill opening. Its way too thick. I liked the older style where it was just a thin trim. And even then I would probably black it out. Plus they made the grill way too wide. It goes to the middle of the headlights. Before it was about flush with the edges.

    You see there is only one constant. One universal. It is the only real truth. Causality. Action, reaction. Cause and effect.

    Maybe I'm alone here, but I do not like the fact that you need to know what this car is to recognize it. The majority of people are not going to be able to differentiate it from an Impala or Malibu. I can spot them right away, because I know the styling cues to look for. I understand the "sleeper" aspect of it, but it's just not my preference. I appreciate the car for what it is, but I wish they would bring more of the unique Aussie styling over here to make it stand out from the rest of the Chevy line. My 2 cents.

    I get what you mean and agree. But in this case, the only styling differences between the Commodore and the SS is the badging.
