The 12+ model interior is so much nicer than the 10-11 and the auto feels like a rocket.
The 2012 Camaro also got the FE4 suspension updates and handles like a dream, and the seats are much better in it than the GT. Post some pics damn it. Good trade, you stuck with a V8 and RWD, can't go wrong no matter what.

Agree completely.

He doesn't seem like he's bragging, just letting folks know. Who cares, he is a part of our community, and decided to get a different brand car, not a big deal. It's not like he joined the Aryan Brotherhood and then came here to recruit.
