Leather

And am I crazy in thinking that someone from GM asked you to start this thread due to the 1SS not selling as much as they thought?

ucla1ove3 01-28-2009 09:37 PM

leather as well.

383ss 01-28-2009 09:51 PM

if I could have got the convenience and connectivity, I would have got a 1SS

ArcAngel 01-28-2009 09:53 PM

the C& C for sure because the other stuff is the reason people are getting 1SS instead of 2SS. but the c&c being left out was plain stupid

:laugh:

No, this is all me trying to draw attention to the things that GM may want to offer as options if possible and financially viable.

I'm truly struggling with the cost of the 2SS and I really want the C&C. So, I'm hoping Scott/GM will see this and maybe run it up the chain if we get enough votes.

I though it would be more valuable if we compared the 3 most noteable things that aren't available on the 1SS, instead of just saying, "should GM let us order C&C: yes or no?"

We'll see.

:thumbsup:

ArcAngel 01-28-2009 10:00 PM

yea I just dont understand the exclusion of the C&C what was the logic there?

UCF w00t 01-28-2009 10:04 PM

It is interesting that the C&C package is available for the 1LT but not 1SS.

GTAHVIT 01-28-2009 10:05 PM

Yeah for me the extra 3K for the 2SS is a bargain for everything you get. But, that would cover my taxes if I could get the 1ss with C&C... I'm sure GM had very good reason's for setting it up the way they did. Maybe they will reconsider? :iono:

Well it's actually only a package on the 1LT. You can't get it on the 1LS either and all of it's features (not the package per say) are included in the 2LT/2SS.

Camaro_Corvette 01-28-2009 10:35 PM

Complete Convenience and Connectivity package: hands down without a doubt. Sorry leather guys, but I have to say what I think would sell more cars. Leather just isn't gonna do it.

ArcAngel 01-28-2009 10:42 PM

yea the one ls is a base care the 1 SS has so much more than a base v8

mwoodengr 01-28-2009 11:49 PM

What am I missing with the C&C package
 
Forgive me for asking, but any anyone explain to me my the C&C package is of any value. :iono: I read thru the list of included items and really the only thing that is of remote interest is the bluetooth. Will this package function similar to the Ford Sync stuff? I just don't get it, but I might be missing something. Thanks

Here's what you get.

Complete Convenience and Connectivity Package
  • Bluetooth® for phone
  • Wireless PDIM for browsing your Player's directories or play lists using steering wheel controls.
  • USB port for IPOD, MP3 Player or Thumb Drive
  • Steering-wheel-mounted audio controls
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Leather-wrapped shift knob
  • Cargo convenience net
  • Compass located in Driver Information Center (DIC)
  • Remote vehicle starter system (automatic transmission)

May not be worth much to you. But I'm thinking it's pretty damn cool. :thumbsup:

EDIT:

When added to the 1LT: Manual tansmission is only $465, Automatic is $665. No way you can do all this aftermarket for that cost. Not even close.

yea, I gotta have ALL those... well maybe not the cargo net.. definitely NOT the remote starter... it will clash with my clutch:paddle:

blazzin1 01-29-2009 12:20 AM

Well, it's not listed here, but I would to see the Console Guages offered from the factory in the 1SS. I know some have said here on the forum that the guages would be offered "over-the-counter", but I haven't seen any real proof of that yet, and would like it to be on my build sheet as a factory option. Just my .02

Too many insiders have said the 4 pack will be an option on the 1SS. That's why I left it off.

Rob490 01-29-2009 12:36 AM

well ill probably get with my 1LT but i thought it was AVAILABLE on 1SS if not then thats just inexcusable cmon gm its your loyal customers that buy the SS you'd think it'd atleast theyd make it available

fad1 01-29-2009 12:40 AM

Yeah, I would have to say C&C, I mean I hope GM does make it an option, they would sell a ton more of the 1SS that way......

zebra 01-29-2009 12:41 AM

the ABL is the only thing on that list that i halfway care about.

personally, i'd rather have manual windows/seats/locks as an option before any of that stuff

Parker 01-29-2009 12:51 AM

The C&C is the main reason I opted for the 2ss. It comes with so much. Break that down individually and should easily add up to 3k alone.

Little sideways off topic, but the GM bluetooth website is sooooo outdated.

josh1147 01-29-2009 01:20 AM

Dissenting opinion here....the 1SS is meant to be the "sports car" sport car. If you want comfy seats, convenience, connectivity, and ABL....get a different model.

I say that GM should leave the 1SS alone and leave it as a more "raw" muscle car for those who want to performance mod.

SScattergunSS 01-29-2009 01:22 AM

Truthfully, I want the option to have it all. I ordered the 1SS/RS Automatic with the Boston Acoustics Speakers, Polished Wheels, and Sun Roof.

If I could get the 4 Pack Gages from the factory, I probably would. If I could get the Ambient Lighting from the factory, I probably would. (I'd rather have them right off the bat, instead of having to spend the time adding 'em later...if they're even available).

I really don't know why the C&C is offered for the 1LT, but not the 1SS?

I like the idea of leather seats, (if they were leather) but think the cloth seats might be better in the long run...I just don't know how well the leather / leatherette will hold up? Also, it gets REAL HOT here where I live. More often than not, cloth is a better choice so you don't burn the BLEEP out of yourself when wearing shorts (which is 7-9 months of the year).

I may not know very much, but I can't help but think every person who orders a new Camaro of whichever model, would order the 4 Pack Gages if they were reasonably priced. Also, I think at least 70-75% of those orders would add the Ambient Lighting as well...if it was reasonably priced. As far as the C&C goes, I don't know. I'd like it, but if I have to cut some costs, I may or may not pull that trigger. (I probably would to be honest with you though!) But the point is, I'd like to have the option.
