Yeah, I'm not overly impressed with Balise either. I touched base with them, and they told me that they were marking up MSRP, and they were not accepting the GM Supplier discount. So I crossed them off my list. A week later I get an email at work from them, asking why I have not come down to see them. I told them that I have quotes from other dealers at MSRP who are accepting the supplier discount, so why should I spend more money at Balise for the same car? Then I got a phone call asking if I had that pricing in writing, which I do, and then I was told to come down to the dealership, because they don't turn away any offer, and maybe we could work something out. Then they started with the typical salesman BS, and at that point I was done. They said "we'll call you in a week and see how things are going." I told them not to call unless they were going to offer at minimum MSRP and the supplier discount. Needless to say, I was never called back.

No, some of us are too depressed because we can't afford one.

Yeah I hear THAT!!! I'm choking hard over the cost of mine as well... but hey... I cashed in my meager 401(k) 4+ years ago and helped finance a boat with it... had tosell the boat and managed a little equity to take some of the sting out of this deal... otherwise I'd still be driving my antique little $1500 Porsche!

I'll be paying for this beast into my 70's!

Long Tube headers and State Emissions...

So I've been totally paranoid about adding on cold air induction, and a set of ARH long tube headers , cats, the whole nine yards only to have State Inspection fail due to emissions...

Had a great chat with ARH directly. They claim to have over 500 installs out there on everything from all flavors of Corvette, Caddies, trucks, you name it... and never had a single customer have an issue, so long as there was a proper tune applied once the mods are complete... and the tune is a given regardless with this sort of major surgery to the breathing systems.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...ders+emissions

So I believe I'm abuot convinced. Now if I can avod WARRANTY issues as a result of all this...

Once a Rhode Islander, always a Rhode Islander.

Nice color choice too.

New SIM V6 on the road!

Hey guys,

Finally got mine last night! Went through Hurd in Johnston. Actually, Mike Hennessey was my SR for those of you who know him. I definitely recommend them, they've been great. Anyone else in Warwick?

I didn't pick up the rally stripes so it works out just fine! I was cruisin down by Oakland Beach last night and saw another. Great to see them on the road. With plenty of ways to customize I have no doubts they'll all look great!

Ok, ok, ok, you guys got me to join. Long time lurker, first time poster. My name is Ken and I come from Glocester....that's right: "No School Foster-Glocester" - Glocester, lol. I have been drooling over the 2010 Camaro back when it was known as a 2009. My first choice was going to be Black on Black, but seeing how I currently own a black car, and it's a PAIN-IN-THE-@$$ to clean, I decided on CGM, with Black rallys. Now, I am currently on an ABM fix and I can't decide on black rallys or white, although I do catch a lot of ABM/White rallys, both here on the forum and on Google search. So I'm leaning toward ABM/Black combo (interior - that's a WHOLE 'nother issue!)

I am currently testing the waters and went down Balise Chevy last night and talked to a Brian and a Michael (I don't recall their last names). They seemed to be pretty nice guys and Brian knew A LOT about the new Camys. I have yet to tried Masse but I am willing to give 'em a shot. Anyhow, when I am ready to bite the proverbial bullet, any thoughts as to who/where/how much it would cost to PAINT the rallys in the state??? Also, I tend to see a lot of SIMs around here (I wasn't too keen on it until I saw it in person) as well as an IOM, and apparently there are going to be a lot of ABMs (that I have YET to see and am dying to!!!). Any thoughts on what would be a unique color choice? Just an opinion is all I'm asking - kinda like buying a really cool shirt and going to a place or an event and having three other people wearing the same shirt, lol. Anyways, my apologies for a long first-post. Hope to be seen on the road sometime soon!

---Ken:bangdesk:

PS: Anyone here drive a SIM/Black Rally that was at Roy Carpenter's Beach during the 4th of July weekend?

Ok. apologies up front cuz I don't have all the color code terms down yet so no clue about most of your cor references so I can't help you there...

What I *can* tell you is that so far my black-on-black is for me to-die-for!

Ok, so I've only had it for a bit over 24hrs after taking delivery Round 3pm yesterday but it is a serious head-turner! I have the 21" black wheel option... The first seen at my dlr (Paul Masse in East Prov) and everyone so far is raving about them.

Cleaning - yes it picks up the dust fast, but I have the Zaino system here and so far it is fantastic... Just started in on a serious treatment regimine this afternoon between rides...

I showed up at the weekly cruise-in at Crescent Park in Riverside and backed in with a handful of vintage Chev muscle cars from 60's-70's... Made for a nice mix... Had a LOT of interest!!

I plan on making the OKland Beach cruise on Tuesday evening as well...

ANYWAY to tour questions, keep options open for sure... Dunno about painting wheels so no help there. WILL say that Aaron Tirrell at Masse in EP did a super job by me and is highly recommended! They currently have two black 2SS/RS units on the floor with diff interiors as well as a red jewel tint unit.

Tomorrow? Cruise to north shore Boston for lunch! Need to get thus beast broken in ASAP! Nearly 299mi in 24 hrs and vacay all week!
