I'd say get the 1SS. Transformers will lose its appeal in a couple years. If you have the 1SS and you have a job, there will be lots of ways you can customize it to make it special and that's not even getting into the performance mods.

Try not to kill yourself though. Leave traction control on on public roads at all times.

My advice: Get a V6. You definitely don't sound mature enough to get a Camaro SS.

Just my .02

Neither are most 16 yearolds. Just talking from experience here.

I am calling troll on this one or at least a very immature OP who is undoubtedly a little on the spoiled side. Also what parent would buy their 16 year old a 400 plus hp car? Seriously this has disaster written all over it. And only you can make this decision, do you want to have all the bells and whistles or the extra power, both of which are only obviously needed in your case to impress your friends. I suggest a Prius since that is as ridiculous as this thread.

Get the SS so your friends don't pick on you. You know, that's what's really important. The image your friends have of you.

Oh and good luck competing with the IS-F. In stock form, the SS is only a fair performer. Dump about $5,000 into it and you're talking.

Stick with the six kid.

List what you need in a Camaro to satisfy you then look at each model and see which one comes closest to meeting your wants and needs. ANYONE buying one based on what impresses someone else is buying for the wrong reason. So who you buying it for, Yourself, or to impress someone else?

That being said no 16 year old should be GIVEN a 400+HP car. To me that is irresponsible parenting. When I got my license I got a hand me down 95 HP 2 speed automatic 65 Corvair Monza, and was happy to have it.

Get the ZL1 or wait for the Z/28. You'll only be 16 once and if you're lucky you'll make it to 17.

Has C5 always been like this? (16-18 year olds and people with no ability to type proper english I mean). I swear I /facepalm more in 15 minutes of reading this forum then I do in my IT job all day. Someone put in a DNS request change for camaro5.com to failblog.org.

They are going to make it in the 2SS/RS trim as well. Sounds like mommy and daddy have more money than common sense so why not go for the 2SS/RS with Transformers package and give Darwin's Survival of the Fittest a testing. ...I still call troll. :troll:
