Opinions on Curb Assist

I have the GM Ground Effects package. Wondering if anyone has the above mentioned product or a reasonable fascimile. I noticed two minute scratches on the front spoiler and I don't want any more.

Yea I have a nice scratch from pulling a little too close to the curb. Never ever happened to me with any other car...go figure, lol!! I wish I had that curb feature on my car. It comes in handy when you're not paying full attention.

No, Google Curb Alert it's a sensor that alerts you when you're too close the curb.

I thought they were the same height..(!?), wow.. thats pretty low, for stock..
this makes me wonder, does those drop kits make 13's even 2" drops
much more lower, vs older models..
People were reporting problems w/front being so low already & scraping over bumps/rock damage...

Yea I almost found out the hard way, I got a floor jack for xmas last year and it fit under the sides of the 2011 with about 1/2 to spare. When I traded in the 2011 for the 2013 I needed to just up the 2013 and instead of just shoving the jack under the car I decided to see if it would fit and low and behold its too short and barley fits under the front.

curb sensor

If they have such aa thing then it could be a great tool. Otherwise for me in my area I'd rather find a parking lot and park that way instead of on the street parking. We all must admit our Camaros can't look like the first day we drove it out from the show room.

My motto. Be more sleective where you park. Even if you have to find a good spot and walk.

Wow.. that means a new jack for this Christmas..
I wanna get a 2013 vert LT2 or ZL2.. tho, I need to get a head first,
I do wonder if the 2013 ZL1's are the same in height as others in the 13's ?
