    I routinely get told a helping hand is one thing, a full on goose is not what is needed.

      Why not just put a wireless charging pad in the bottom of the cubby under the center armrest? There’s already peer there.

        Small enclosed space and hot charging phone are a bad mix.

        I hope they keep the charger where it is. Out of the way and distraction free while driving, but still easy to access with the left hand over the right shoulder once parked.

          It kinda makes sense that they'd do a light refresh going into the 5th model year of the C8. Give a slight differentiation between the early cars and the second half of the production run. Give early adopters a reason to jump into a refreshed SR or jump up into Z06 or GS.

            Like JackFrost said, it would get very hot in there. Aside from that, I use the cubby to hold other things. There's already very little storage in the C8's cabin. Don't take away some of what is there.

                I'm good with the wall of buttons, but sometimes it is hard to see the indicator lights when the top is off. If they can improve that, it would be a bonus.

                  Brighter LED’s would be easy, though I rarely look over there, doing most of my changes by feel. Fan up or down one, AC temp adjustment similarly.

                    I'm so used to the wall, all the buttons have become intuitive and I don't look at them very often. I still love the look of it and would be disappointed without it. BTW, it's 4" tall at the highest point, not exactly accurately named as a "wall".

                      I think early on, I was among the first to call it "The Great Wall of Buttons". I called it a wall because it seemed to wall off the passenger from the driver.

                        maybe this is where GM are planning to put the money they're saving by removing the rear hatch lock cylinder 😪

                          Would GM really spend the money making the level 2 carbon interior for only 1 year. I don’t believe they are changing a thing.

                            I doubt it will be a big overhaul, maybe some subtle changes/optimization. C8 is selling like crazy, there's obivously no real need for an interior refresh. I really like the "wall of buttons", since they are pyhsicals buttons and have different shapes so you can find the different functions without looking at it. It also adds greatly to the feeling of a driver centric car. I really hope they will not remove them to put the AC functions into the touchscreen.

                              Only two things I am not a fan of inside:

                              1. The aforementioned phone charger (I still keep mine either in the cupholder or the door side pocket out of pure habit), as yes, it is difficult to get to. I'll give this one time.
                              2. The volume controls on the steering wheel, as my hand has to leave the optimal grip position, then pull on the switches, instead of the simple thumb reach access I enjoyed on the BMW 335is I used to have before my new '23. (*NOTE: I have rarely listened to the radio since delivery, as the sound of the LT2 and exhaust are much more pleasant to listen to...and one of the reasons I have for having the car in the first place! Besides, she is still in break-in, so I am listening to everything mechanical)

                                I like the cockpit styling with the row of buttons and the wall. To me, it gives the driver a more purposeful driving experience as the wrap around design centers the car and its functions around the primary occupant. The driver.

                                I'd like to see it retained in some way and not overhauled entirely.
