If possible, drive each for 2 or 3 days ..... not just a dealer test. My wife wanted just the V6. Drove one for a few days.....had an opportunity to drive the SS (V8) for a weekend ...... and she insisted on a V8 from that point on.
I found a difference in the ride, handling, cornering AND braking....all in addition to the extra ponies in the stable.
We obviously felt it was worth the extra $$$.

It's better to have it & not need it......then to need it & not have it.

Having owned both IMO the driving experience is quite different between the two. Both great but different. The 2ss seems to hug the road better you really feel the corners and the brembos really make a big difference when you really need that braking power. I would describe the 2lt ride as smooth great for long drives and cruising. As far as power goes I thought the v6 was plenty enough power. But one thing I love about the v8 is the sound when you get on it.

I was in the same situation 2 weeks ago . Almost bought a new 2012 2lt/rs manual. Test drove a few used 2lt/rs . Ended up with used 2010 2ss/rs with 5k miles . I just loved the ride of the SS. It feels much heavier / solid . Oh yeah and the sound of the exhaust ........Drive both of them and then decide . Either way you wont be disappointed

i got the 1SS w/o RS and im perfectly happy with it, the only things i really cared about M6 and the usb with hands free. Im prolly gonna get the auxillary gauges in a couple weeks because i hate that hole there.

Not to hurt anyone's feelings or anything but I own a 2010 1SS LS3 RS and last week Hertz at LaGuardia rented me a 2LT auto. I found it pretty unimpressive. The auto, lack of torque, sound and general "feel" gave me the impression that I was driving "just another car". I would just as soon drive my wife's Cruze. When I got home and crawled into my 1SS and rowed through the gears in a spirited fashion, I was sure I had made the right decision.
