i say a parts guy can order the components and you can get them installed. i plan on doing that to get just the front lip spoiler from the ground effects.

Mr. Darco

Thanks, I stand corrected. I misunderstood the specs until I just went back and saw them as you say.

Long Live Camaro!



Wow.

Ok the 2SS and the 1SS has the exact same hp. The only difference is auto or manual.[/QUOTE]

I just want plain and simple.. I'm getting the 1SS (either auto or manual) with the only upgrade being the Boston Acoustics system since it would cost about the same to get my own set of speakers installed and I don't want the Geek Squad at Best Buy messing with the car doors and wires...I do prefer cloth and can live without the convenience package. I live in Florida so auto start isn't necessary..

So wait, let me get this straight:

The 4 pack gauges are confirmed to be ready for install on a 1SS harness?

They almost always have all the connections for all the possible options included in the wiring harnesses. They don't make a different wiring harness for each option.

Buying all that stuff extra will run you about $1,000 over what you're paying if you go ahead and get the 2SS.
riiiight... its a $1200 option on the G8. sounds like a good comparison to me

IMVHO, it's a good value and has a lot of great content; it's a great package, I think

What? I live in Florida and just got my 2ss vert. Auto start is fantastic. I start my car, as I am leaving my office on HOT days and the ac has evertying cooled down for me by the time I get to my car.

While this is a luxury, I love it.

The extras in the 2SS are awesome, and worth every penny. I've got plenty of excuses why I ordered a 1SS but nothing new you haven't already read.

My biggest reason for going the simple 1SS route is leather seating. Here in Texas, we've been stuck over 100* daily, with plenty of days breaking 110*, just not practical at all. Then again I kept my order pretty simple anyway, 1SS/M6, no options. If the car weren't going to be a DD, there's no reason I wouldn't have ordered a 2SS.

If you live in a cooler area, then just disregard this post.

I have a 2ss vert and the only ambient lighting I seem to have are the led rope on the doors..just the one upper one... looks like you have the led lights rope circling the door panel and along the dash???

I guess I'll go look at my manua again. Or is something wrong and I need to go to the dealer?

Its worth it to get the 2SS for just the heated seats.
They get real hot and really warm your tush and lower back. On those chilly mornings they feel soooo goooood.

I was gonna get the 1SS, but when I realized there were several other options in the 2SS, I couldn't help but realize that I would be missing out on these options. And the fact of knowing that for the extra $50 - $75 more it would cost per month is really not that much. And then, by the time it is paid off, you will be like, "man I am glad i went with the 2SS!!! Heated seats, Bluetooth, HUD, leather seats, gauge pack, ambient lights, steering wheel controls, it is all worth it!!!

Ok. Yup.. I took a close look today and there is no led pipe in those other areas. I Like the looks of the ambient lighting in that photo.. I wonder if that was a concept photo or something.

I'm a minimalist and don't care for leather so a 1SS with conv and elec package fit me nice. Being a drag racer I want more go by way of less weight and the car seems loaded to me anyway.

I bought a 1SS/RS first time around, but put the order in October, 2008, sight unseen. Didnt realize at the time how much I would get into this car enjoyment wise. Traded for a vert this spring and got exaclty what I wanted this time around.

Mind you im not getting the sun roof or the gfx package cos im not digging the looks (sunroof) and looks and price (gfx). As for the 21" wheel. Outrageous $$$. Easy pick up on ebay for half the costs and more choice.

So 2ss/rs is for me. But if you do the maths, its a really good deal. No point in doing it yourself aftermarlet cos it will cost you more.
i agree, all or nothing. most people, even if you don't think you want a heated seat, will one day say, "hrmm, would be nice" when the weather in las vegas suddenly dips to 25 degrees.

i really like the 21" rims, but they are monumentally expensive.

Get the 1SS w RS and add leather. Katskinz leather is what I had added to the it's awesome all the other stuff is just more than I wanted. The iPhone allows u to talk thru the system anyway I have stereo controls on the wheel. Power seats and the RS package is what I have. Everything but premium audio HUD and Bluetooth is what I have on my 1SS. Luxury enough for me
