Re: 2014 Overland White Stitching on Dash

The camaro forums are full of dye pens being used with good results. I'm still thinking about it. If I saw a summit in person and liked how it looks I might move a bit faster.

Re: 2014 V6 owners - how do you like it?

Love the v6 and gear/tranny setup compared to my old 2012. Eco mode is horrid though but I've been learning to use sport mode around town and when merging. Sport mode is totally awesome feel wise.

Re: 2014 Overland Buzzer Sound while driving

Since this was released on 4/4, was it removed during assembly after that date? Just wondering if I should have them remove before delivery. Or if it wasn't even put on mine that was built on 4/6.
