Traded in the 2010 1SS A6 for a 2012 1SS M6

Traded my Camaro for another Camaro!! Really like the way this one handles, seemingly smoother ride also.

Here's a pic from the dealership parking lot:

I did the same 2 years ago this month, totally different car IMO. First thing I did was get a short throw shifter. M6 has loooong throws.
Congrats on the swap

So are the 2012 suspension changes effective? Is it the handling or is it something else that makes you says it's a totally different car?

how do you like the look of the new steering wheel compared to the pre-2012 steering wheel?

personally, i don't like the way the pre-2012 camaro steering wheel looks, but i don't really care for the fact that the new wheel is the same one they use in the chevy cruze, even though i still think it looks good.

Not sure if the changes are in effect, but the car handles better and has a smoother ride when going over bumps in the road.

I like the new steering wheel, the 2010 was somewhat old school IMHO.

Ya, they attach them cause cali laws require two plates front and rear.
Would much rather have no front plate

Wouldn't know, I went 2010 auto to 2010 manual. The m6 car IMO feels faster, sounds better. Love the LS3.
