Hell yeah! Integrated key into fob! And see that piece of plastic on the shift trim plate that's behind the shifter? $5 says that'll be an electric e-brake like the CTS. I'm excited!

And dual climate control!

I'm pretty sure there's a pic in another set of spy pics that shows the e-brake handle on the far right side of the center console.

It's more of a brake for parking on a hill. I'm sure it would be in addition to the manual e-brake or that would make drifting retarded... unless of course you were going off of pure power :AH-HA_wink:

And you're right on the location of the manual e-brake:

That interior is lookin' pretty good!

Still, at this point I'd rather build my own "C.A.R.S." chassis '69 hardtop.

It would cost me the same and I'd be proud of having built it myself!

Did they just use the engine cover off a VE now? It looks like the Holden badge fit that circle.

For as often as it's used, down low and being a black button is far preferable to a bright orange button up high in the middle of the dash, where every passenger can gaze at it helplessly.

Actually, I prefer something so singularly utilitarian & infrequent in purpose/usage go back where it belongs, on the steering column, discretely out of general view.

The interior looks fab. I like it more than the Corvette's,

That's not hard to imagine...the vette's interior design blows...

Sorry to say, but that is a single-zone HVAC system. The knob to the left controls fan speeds and the knob to the right controls teh temperature settings. Look at them again, on the left knob you see the white notches denoting fan speeds and on the right you see blue (cold) & red (hot) markings.

And in this picture - http://jalopnik.com/photogallery/09chevyca...spy1/1000599999 - look underneath the hazard lights button and see the CENTRAL LOCKING system. Pretty cool feature if I say so myself. Is this GM's first model to offer central locking???

Isn't that on everything today? One button to lock/unlock all the doors? Common...

I think he means just integrated into the ICS. Many cars have them on the driver's and passenger's door armrests.

The driver's door is definitely a better place than on the dash, IMHO... power window and door lock switches on the console are one of the things that I've always found annoying about BMWs and Mercs...

I actually like it on the ICS. It's easier to find. Half the time I go to unlock the doors in any of the cars I drive, I've gotta look around on the door panel to find where the unlock button.

Then again, I'm probably borderline retarded.

What's an 'ICS'? Haven't seen that acronym before... I'm familiar with 'instrument panel', 'dashboard', 'center stack', 'center console', etc...
