Which one to get!?

So, I have been in a search for a Camaro for QUITE a long time now LOL (4 months?) was JUST about to close a deal on a used 2011 2LT for $25000 before I got robbed of the chance :(

However, good things comes to those who wait I guess right? Anyways, I got quoted a pretty good deal on a brand new 2012 2LT in Canada for $34000+taxes. The car's MSRP is $40,200 before taxes.

Anyways, I am having the HARDEST time trying to decide between ordering a 45th Anniversary 2LT and a Black 2LT with beige interior. Both would have same options for basically the same price +/- $100.

What are your thoughts? Which do you think would be best? I love both and keep going back and forth between the two! Mostly comes down to interior for me, kind of curious how the black with beige would look. Also, haven't seen any night shots of the interior of the Camaro. I'm curious how the ambient lights look along the door panels.

I was just thinking the same thing as you about the ambient lighting on a beige background. You probably should look at this before deciding on the beige interior, might be a deal breaker.

He's in Canada, although with the USD and the CD at parity it just doesn't seem fair.

Yeah :( one reason it sucks to be in Canada. Seems like no matter what, we always end up getting the short end of the stick LOL especially since the car IS made here

Why LT? Get a SS.

Because that's what he wants? Not everyone wants/can afford a new SS Especially in Canada. They are HIGH.



OP, what did you decide?
