New Member - 1 week old Camaro.. First Car

Wanted to introduce myself. New to the boards and always been a huge fan of Camaro's. I go to see the plant in Quebec before they killed the 4th Gen. Before that I always loved the Camaro, but it cemented my love for it, and that I would have no other car except for a Vette. So 10 years later... here we are....

Bought my 1st car, a 2011 Camaro 1SS with RS. Its Victory red with artic white hood and trunk stripes. Also should mention its a standard trans, which I had not driven in 1o years before last Sat, so that was a fun experience.

Here are some pics of my ride... Also wouldn't mind hearing what you guys did to your cars first... like what did you change first, etc... I do live in Ontario, so 20" rims and tires for the winter are going to be my first major buy

Congrats on your purchase! Very nice!

Do yourself a favor though and get a smaller rim for your winter set, 18's with an offset that will fit over those brembos will work wonders. Skinnier too! 9" wide tires kind of defeats the purpose of the winter slicks. I'm on the lookout for a decent set for the winter myself

Enjoy!

Very nice! Welcome to C5!

As for mods, I did a couple of performance mods and the rest have been cosmetic. You'll have lots of options!

Thanks for not getting orange. Just about everytime I think I see a victory red Camaro it turns out to be IOM. Looks great with the white stripes.

Beautiful!

Look up TireRack.com, they have winter sets. Steelies with winter tires.
Even if you don't buy from them you can find out what you need.

If you are going to drive in the snow get some winter floor mats and maybe a trunk mat.

what do you want first for mods? Motor, exterior, interior?
