Hello Everyone (new member)

Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.

My name is Mike and I live in Florida. I just picked up a 2011 Camaro LS on Saturday and couldn't be any happier. This is my second car (I also have a 2007 BMW 335i Coupe), I know I will get beat up for not getting the V8 or at least a higher trim package. It just made more sense for me and my budget to get the V6 and aside from that it had the options i wanted.

Here is the car:








I have some plans for it: Exhaust, Intake, Wheels, Aux Gauge Pack. I have already ordered the PDIM for USB hook up and I will be installing it this weekend (then have dealer do programming). So far I love the car but they are taking it back for some body/paint issues to be fixed (the trunk has drags in the paint under clear coat and it looks like someone dropped something on the wheel well - Dent).

I Got it for 22.5K with 9 miles (Auto w/paddle) so it was a great deal. Look forward to talking with everyone.

Thanks,

Mike

Thank you everyone!!!

I have a few quick questions if someone could give me some advice.

1) Are there any shifter options for the auto?? I really hate the OEM knob, but I dont want some generic "fit all" knob.

2) Is an intake the best first mod to start increasing the power? Are there some better then others are all essentially the same output of performance?

3) Would plugs and wires make a diffrence at all? Or are OEM pretty much as good as you need?

4) Any free mods? I know with my BMW and past cars there have been small things that can be done to get a little power or something cool for free. For instance on my BMW you can unblug the exhaust motors which give you straight through all the time.


Thank You

- Mike

Mike, CONGRATS and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's and wive's here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

First of all welcome from another florida member. There are some options for the shifter Barton industries makes one along with defenderworks i believe. Now for the intake. I love my intake. I have the cold air inductions it is my only performance mod and i could feel the difference from before and after. I am not really sure about your number 3 and 4 but im pretty sure someone else will chime in and let you know. Congrats on the new camaro you will love it even if its a V6 cause i know i do
