newbie here

Hey all- my name is Matt (obviously) and I'm currently shopping for a 2011 SS.

I had a 97 Trans Am about 12 years ago and loved it to death, minus that it broke down a lot... probably from me driving too hard and often, and being young and not taking proper care. Since then I've been a big VW/Audi fan, owning 5 since 2001.

I'm currently in a 2011 GTI, got it about 1 year ago. Wanted a Camaro but with my wife and I planning on another kid I needed to stay practical so got the 4 dr GTI. Now, we've changed our minds about another kid so I need my 1/3rd life crisis car!

Planning on a black on black SS with RS package, but we'll see what my wallet can take!
I look forward to learning more about these cars and possibly doing a couple small mods.

Welcome to the site!

Looking forward to seeing the new ride.

And FWIW. we have two kids and the Camaro works just fine with car seats.

Thanks guys! Got a ballpark quote back from the guy I'm working with- not looking too good for the payments. He quoted a 48 month 15,000 mile/yr lease for 570 a month. No cash down only the trade in. The car is a SS with RS, convenience and connectivity, and sunroof. More than I need...

I'd be happy with just a 1SS. RS preferred, though.

Wish me loads of luck- I'm stretching my dollars to get into a car that'll make me do this ->

and this

and this

and.... this :5thgenvert:

sorry, too much caffeine! will post back with updates!
