well
my dealer still does not know anything (the last call i gave him was yesterday), in fact he is learning from me all the time
no order codes, no nothing
on the french and italian websites of gm you can find (only after intensive search) some fact-sheets (the french one even has weights and towing capacity of the vert!!!) but still no colours
so
i have the money piled up here (not at home, in the bank) but i do not get my car, because you cannot order it...
i guess this is due to the fact that in sept 2011 there will be the international autoshow IAA in frankfurt, and they are gonna present it there and after that there will be the official start
the next prob is
the desired car is an L99 vert, rjt (dead, so crystal red claret (supposed not to come for 2012) so ibm (fbodfather himself said it will return)) with tan top and tan int and 20 inch polished wheels
so: will they offer the tan top for the euro spec car, as well as the tan int (i have seen first pics of a tan int of a 2012 my (dashboard changed!) and i love the looks)
so i guess it will be spring 2012 before it is here
in the meantime i will keep in contact with the -community and continue to learn about the car to be able to teach my dealer
One problem I see with the auto show is once everyone sees the Camaro and then wants one, I beleive there will be a few takers, it will be harder for someone "just a regular citizen" to go and order one. And then the Camaro might be considered a "premium" car and make it harder for you to get one.

I wish you the best and keep us posted....

thanks for wishing
well i can still remember how the showed the last series of the 4th gen Camaro in Frankfurt
we loved it, but the nearest dealer by that time was in Hamburg, about 75 miles away...
and by that time the Camaro was a really slow seller
nowadays it will be even worse, with gas-prices exceeding 8$/U.S. Gallon here.
people prefer to buy Audi A5 with diesel engines, of the BMW 3 series coupe is often equipped with diesel engines. same with Mercedes E class coupe and convertible, mostly equipped with diesel engines. all of them have only half the fuel consumption of a camaro (or get the double mpg), and diesel fuel is a lot cheaper than gasoline.
and a lot of people think (because it had been this way for decades) that U.S.-american cars have terrible underpinnings, fading brakes and cannot be driven full throttle without dying within 50 miles). i have seen all the vids of highspeedtesting on the nurburgring (the most demanding racetrack of the world according to many race car drivers) gm did with the 5th gen camaro
so there will not be the above mentioned probs at all (i know that, but the majority of people will stick to their prejudices...)
but please keep your fingers crossed they will offer my dream car
L99 vert, ibm, tan+tan,20inch polished

That one expensive Camaro....But from having lived over there the cost of everything is much higher than the US. Just to fill up the gas tank your talking 144.00 U.S. each time.

yeah, things are pretty expensive
this RV is 96000 US Dollars

the euro spec chrysler 300c hemi 84000
and even this thing 47000

opel insignia (sold in the usa as buick regal)
so in comparison the L99 vert is a bargain
except for its thrust for gas
