Cool Camaro Features

I love it when you have been driving your car for a while and then you find some new feature, that maybe isn't really cool, but the fact that it took you so long to find it makes it that much better.

Here are 2 features that I found recently on my Camaro that were new to me and I didn't notice them on other GM cars previously...

1. If you turn off your car while the wind shield wipers are going and they stop in the up position, if you move the lever to off before you open the door, the wipers will go down.

2. If you just tap the turn signal slightly for one blink as if you are changing lanes and don't click it all the way on, it will flash 3 times before turning off.

That's all I got so far...is this old news? Did you guys know about these? Find any other cool ones?

I love my car. (<- Tim, fix background color on last frame, not transparent, it bugs me)

The wiper thing is pretty much a given since the electical system stays on until you open the door. Ever notice that your radio stays on until you open the door? Same thing.

I always hated how cheesy the turn signal lever was in the fourth gen.
It always felt like it was ready to snap off.
Major improvement on the new car.
There, I said it....

The turn signal lever is exotic on the 5th Gen.

You gotta see Jack.

Fifty years from now, when you're looking back at your life, don't you want to be able to say you had the guts to get in the car?

Now those big Texas trucks can shine their lights in my drivers side mirror all they want, all I'll do is yawn at them.

Nope, my other GM cars the wipers do not function once the key is turned off from the 'On' position. The entire electrical system does not stay running, only the radio and windows usually.

Has any figured out the best way to just "crack" a window open? Or, are you like me, playing "chase the window up and down" trying to get it to just open, say, 1/2"...

On my Mazda CX-7, I could just "pop" the window button and it would open about 1/2"...if I wanted to do an "Auto Open", I would hold the button for about a second and it would open all the way... (or, maybe it was the opposite technique, I can't remember)
