Hello World

Hello everyone, I figured it was about time to introduce myself.

I have been frequenting these forums for about three months now, and I purchased my 2011 2LT RS M6 about a month and a half ago. Since then I've put roughly 2,500 miles on it after getting it with just 9 miles on the odometer. So far the car is stock, as I am trying to be slow and steady with my mods, but it has been difficult controlling my impulses. I confess that I am a ricer convert, with my first car being a heavily, but poorly modded, 2003 Nissan Sentra Spec-V (I'm Asian and I had it since high school, what do you expect?).

The 5th generation Camaro has been my dream car since the first concept drawing I saw, and I have finally been able to realize that dream. I'm two years out of college and it is the first car I have ever purchased for myself. I look forward to enjoying the next few decades with this car, and also being quite possibly one of the only Asians with an American muscle car.

This forum contains an incredible wealth of information (and some not so relevant threads...), and is definitely one that I check compulsively throughout the day. Many thanks to those you who answer questions and offer DIY write-ups on this site, it's much appreciated.

P.S. Chicagoland Camaro owners, if you know of any recommended shops (besides Showstoppers and Speed Inc.) please feel free to let me know. Thanks!

clav1n, 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 them...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!!

Welcome to C5. Great color choice. She's beautiful.

I held off mods, except for the window tints, for a while. It was tough!

When the mod time comes, what are you leaning towards?

Thanks, nice color yourself. I'm actually going to have 35% tints done as well, just enough to protect the leather and make things a little darker. How do you like yours?

So far I've replaced the turn signal bulbs so they don't show through the housing as yellow anymore. I'm planning on blacking out the taillight bezels, bowties, and rims. Then a Solo Catback, CAI intake, and some short shifter that I haven't decided on yet.

Great mods list!

The 35% tint is great. It's plenty dark enough for me.
