    Just think how you'll feel when GM drops the LSA into the Camaro next year ;-)

    I certianly miss HUD from my vette, so I feel your pain, but I can live without it given the rest of the V's merits.

    There will be only small reasons to stay in a V at that point, unless Cadillac does something to keep people buying it other than the V having 4 doors. An LSA and HUD in a Camaro will go over better for the muscle car side of those who shop, the 20K less price will definitely move them over unless they "need" 4 doors.

    You are right. I loved the HUD in my Vette.

    Umm... Once again, I think people have confused the two cars as going after the same market. Don't get me wrong, the Camaro is a very nice car, but it still isn't a Cadillac. You are paying for the luxuries and "sophistication". The Z/28 will have the LSA, but will it offer the goodies such as MRC, Nav, Cooled seats, Keyless Access, 4/50 warranty, Memory Seats (My mothers only complaint about her SS). Even if the straight line performance is comparable, which I am sure it is, do you believe that it will also be able to out handle the V?

    I am sure your correct that there will be those that would go for a Z/28 for 20K less, but most of them are at the Ford dealership picking up GT500's. I hardly think that the Z/28 is going to steal sales from the V's.

    Now, I agree that it would be nice to have a HUD and wish they wouldn't have deleted the Rainsense wipers.

    Isn't the V-coupe the same size as a camaro? 2 doors, low roof. Considerably better. I believe the V-coupe will even be out way sooner than the LSA equipped Z-28.

    Apparently, I've owned my V long enough to know it didn't come with HUD. And I tracked my V1 plenty without one and did just fine...

    I'd love to have factory HUD in my V. Maybe next model year.

    I had the hud in my M6 and rarely used it. It was cool for sure but a distraction as well.

    Wow, a Camaro causes buyer's remorse? Have you guys sat in one? I'd much rather have a V over any Camaro. The Camaro's ergonomics are just pure crap. Interior materials, layout, seating position, hip room, head room, on and on. Go sit in one at a dealership. You guys own a Cadillac not some damned chevy that you see on every corner. Man up damnit! Where the hell is BigJim?

    All good comparisons, my beef is that they would put a HUD in a Camaro and not a V. I think I'm wrong in people going to the Camaro from the V, I just wish I had the dang HUD.
