    stock ride height makes them look like freakin 4x4's with lift kits. Wish they came about an inch lower from factory.

    I love my car, but I would change alot LoL.

    1. The Hood and Fender Vents, Chrome em.
    2. The doors, they're so long, make em vertical opening.
    3. That damn cup holder behind the shifter.
    4. Paint, GM paint is worthless, great colors, shitty quality.
    5. Horsepower, give em atleast 400, maybe 450 and stronger internal parts.
    6. Rear end, stock rear end is a joke.
    7. Steering, needs to be quicker.
    8. Shocks/Springs, Factory Bilsteins and stiffer spring rates.
    9. Billet Interior pieces, A/C Vents, maybe some other small trim pieces.
    10. Pedals, Mustangs have some kick ass pedals, we get shitty black rubber pieces.
    11. Fuel tank, needs to be bigger IMO, might not be room for it though, have yet to really look at it underneath.
    12. Engine dress up, Corvette style engine covers or sumthin.

    Thats really most all I can think of off the top of my head. GM did a great job balancing this car though. Everything that most dont like about the car can be fixed in the aftermarket. If GM did too much better, they'd put the aftermarket out of business.

    Yea +1 on the engine dressup. Id atleast like some nicer looking valve covers like the 4.6 mustangs. Covers would be great too.

    The rear end, i havent had any real problem with the engine bay, i mean i know you cant get to the back of the motor but i havent had to yet, as for a tune up i can do one in about 2 hours or less. The cars would be nicer lighter, i saw a 240sx with a stock ls1 motor headers and exhaust do an 12.07 in the quarter thats a second or more faster than a ls1 in a trans am. Also that run was with street tires and a stock a4 tranny.

    The body material.

    On my trunk lid, where you press down to close, there are some stress cracks in the paint

    engine bay, weak rear end, the ss/ws6 should have been signifigantly different than the z-28/trans-am but still choose them over brand X

    No car is ever going to be perfect. But these cars are pretty close!

    The things that bug me are.

    Cup holder that you can't use because it gets in the way of the shifter.
    Hump in passenger floorboard.
    brakes are too small!
    Headlight gears suck, they always strip out.
    doors are too long, but I think it makes the car look better so I guess they are ok.
    But the thing that bugs me the most is that there is no 12 bolt option from the factory!

    But overall i love the car. They are faster than anything out there in the same price range. Plus they handle pretty nice too! And they look so hot, they practically come with a girl!

    center cup holder sucks but the hidden one is great.

    I like the hump in the floor, it adds personality to the car.

    They could have designed the console a little different so that the cup holder isnt behind the shifter,but at least it has one unlike the 3rd gens.
    The stock rear ends,power window motors,and the flip up headlight BS plastic gear is all crap.
