thinking of trading in on a 2010 2SS/RS CGM but i feel i have too much invested and too close to let this one go i might just have to pass.
Thoughts?

What are your goals with the car?

Would you be getting it just to say you have a v8
Is it to have a faster car than Mercedes?
Do you have a real need for the v8?


On the other hand, can't you take off the mods you've done with the current car and put them on the new one?

If you plan on adding a bunch of performance mods then trading in for a v8 would make sense. If you don't plan on doing that then I'd just keep your current car.

But besides that debate. Nice car! Love the rims and the retro Camaro lettering =)

i would like to get the v8 since no matter what i add to this one it wont keep up with the v8 but at the same time it is not necessarily needed. most of the mods i can either switch over to the new car or put n mercedes car. but that will take a long time and also more money. just seemed like a pretty good deal but might just have to wait.

It will come down to whether or not you want the power for anything. If you don't plan on racing it and enjoy customizing it to look the exact way you want, I would keep the v6. If you need the power for something, then you can't go wrong. The halos do look really sweet though.

It's going to cost money to swap stuff, and gas + insurance is going to be more expensive, and there is a bigger performance market out there for the V8's. Now would be the time to by though if you do decide the upgrade!

that is the thing i dont NEED it for anything that is why i am unable to justify getting it. i probably will end up waiting until the 6th gen comes out then and get a SS or what ever they decide to call it or might get lucky and pick up a used ZL1. plus i dont think i will be able to let this one go to sentimental.

I think it will be a long time before there is a 6th gen that has any major changes. They pretty much nailed it with this one.

That is fine I love the styling of these and it will give me tune to save up until then. And I agree they nailed this one.
