Purolator Boss?

Hey guys, anyone use the Purolator Boss oil filter on their SS? I've been using Mobil 1 until now, but of course they were out of stock. Was just going to go with a Delco, but it was the "E"...

Not ripping on the Camaro, but IMO, most modern cars look alike today. I just got an SUV for my daily driver, and it looks like 90% of the other SUVs out there.

I saw a 2016 in person, and it does actually look pretty cool. However, it's not really very unique. A lot of the new cars I see all look the same. I like the retro look of the 5th gen.

Yep, used to have a 2011, but traded in many years ago. I will never again make the mistake of buying a muscle car with a V6. I didn't really get what all the V8 fuss was about until I got one. ...

Not sure what the reasoning for AFM was...probably mostly govt. crap and also to avoid a gas guzzler tax (which is more govt. crap). Bottom line for me is, it's garbage. The funny thing is, most of...

Fine, but Camaros aren't luxury cars. If you want the goodies, buy a luxury car. If you want power, buy a V8. Guys, feel free to blow your money on whatever you want, but paying damn near $40K for...

Not really crap I need or care about. Give me a nice interior and a big V8 that sounds good, and I'm happy. To each their own, though.

It's a 2012 SS. I guess I am just in shock because the new V6 costs what I paid for my SS three years ago. Yeah, I know prices increase, but geez. They are getting close to European territory.

So the V6 as tested was $38K?:twitch: That's crazy. Also, I see they added cylinder deactivation. Another WTF? All I can say is, my 5th gen is in no danger of being sold. These prices are a bit...

Call me crazy, but I don't see how this new SS is going to put out the same times as a ZL1 (even though that's effectively what GM is saying). ZL1 has 580HP vs 455HP of the new SS. Yeah, the SS is...
