I think I'll eventually get a 1SS/RS and BA audio. I've thought about the 2SS but it's just not worth it to me, especially since I don't want the leather seats.. If GM will sell it to me I'll add in the C&C package as well. I would be interested in the ambient lighting as a stand-alone upgrade (say $500) but the C&C is much more important and really I'll be annoyed if they don't add it to the option list by next year. The most frustrating part is not being able to get the USB connecter in the center console, you can get that on any Mustang trim, even one that costs less than $20k and it's not even an option on a $31k SS. I don't mind that it's in a bundle of stuff I may not really want, as the bundle is a decent value if they would just offer it with the SS1. This isn't the biggest issue in the world but people spending this much on a car are going to be unhappy seeing an option they want offered on the cheaper LT1. Streamlining production is one thing, but this is one that just irks me as it's something the factory already does. I'll find a way around it if they don't change things (parts from the dealer and install myself depending on price) but it's something GM should really take another look at IMO.

Well I don't care about the 4 pack myself, it's not in a great spot IMO and it seems kind of cheesy. I don't dislike it, but I like a change holder more lol. I think GM made a good choice of offering the gauges as a dealer option though, a lot of people do seem to like them. I agree on ambient lighting, though since they don't seem to have it 100% yet I can understand why they aren't in a hurry to make the lighting availible as a seperate option. I think there's at least some potential to make a lot of money selling the lighting as a dealer install kit, IF they can hit the right pricepoint.

I would want a 1SS with C&C ,ABL and the 4-pack. Leather is nice and all, but its so damn hot in the summer and so damn cold in the winter I'm just tired of it.

I don't care about any of those, but I'd like to see the 4-pack gauges available.

I voted for ambient lighting but I'd like the C&C too... it's the only reason I'm considering getting a 2SS and I just don't think I can justify the extra cost for that stuff alone, even if it might cost more to do it later, on my own, at least I won't be paying interest for it.

C&C Package. Since it seems like something everyone can enjoy.

.....leather is kind of particular.

They should really reconsider and offer the C&C

I wouldn't go quite that far. I would say it's a fair deal to both sides. I could care less about the C&C pkg when I'm driving. Honestly, if I could have simply added leather, I probably would have bought a 1SS.

FWIW, I went to my Car AV shop and went down the list of what the C&C does with them and asked them to price similar capabilities and try to use the existing head unit. (they had to guess a little since they don't have the head unit) They quoted me easily 3K for the what the C&C does. These guys can do anything. Even adding steering wheel controls to a stock wheel.

When you figure in what else you get on the 2SS that's standard, I'm thinking its a good deal. Plus their install wouldn't be as clean as factory, obviously. Unless I wanted to spend BIG dollars on fabrication.

I'd have to disagree. there have been a few threads on this, but I think its about $500 overpriced. Its a $3188 premium, which is just a HUGE jump.

leather can be added easily aftermarket.
i've done it on several of my cars and recommended friends to do it as well, which they did.
All have been happy with the results.

I don't disagree (although I have no practical experience in it) but I just can't bring myself to not have OEM everything on a first year production car. You never know what the future may bring...

I could care less about the Ambient lighting and leather. Those two are the main reason there's a 2SS in the first place.

But the C&C package would get a lot of hits, I think, if they offered it. I know I'd get it.

Let's not forget the 4-pack gauges (although those supposedly can be dealer added later).

yeah...forgot those. Perhaps include them in the C&C package...they qualify as a 'convenience' right?

X2 ... 1SS doesnt need "heated" leather but regular leather would have been nice as an option. I dont see the need for the C&C pkg in the 1SS. That along w/ the "heated" seats & mirrors is good for the 2SS but the gauges absolutely should have been at least available as an option on the 1SS if not std (IMO). I would have opted for leather but I dont want the heaters!

Ambient lighting is cool and I'd like it but ... I still think it belongs on the 2SS. The 2SS just seems to be the "fancier model" and should keep the "fluffy things" while leaving the performance stuff on the 1SS (like the 4 pack)

One thing with seats, if that's what's important to you aftermarket replacement seatcovers or some nice Recaro's can be added while the duplicating the C&C package with an install and all is a lot more hassle than that IMO.

Like others, I'd get a 2SS, but leather just doesn't work for me here in FL, so 1SS it is. If they offered the C&C package I'd buy it on the 1SS. If the wiring is already there, which some have said it is, they should offer it. My 2 cents..

totally agree your paying 31000 plus for a 1SS bluetooth and usb port , leather steering wheel should have been there for the price. Crap you get that on so many cheaper cars!!!
