1SS or 2SS, WHAT DO I GET???!!!?!!?!!!??

I want to go down and order soon, my small town dealership has only pre-sold 1.

I could use the money i save getting the 1SS to upgrade but.....i really love leather and the C&C package.

Should i get the 1SS and get the front seats custom upholstered with leather? How much would that cost? Maybe it wont be worth it?!

After figuring my monthly payment after APR and dwn pymnt the difference is 1SS $425 and 2SS $453.

Im so up in the air!!! Please give me your thoughts, maybe you could think of something im not.

I agree, it is a no brainer. If you get the best model, you will never regret or wonder, "What If"!

If you're going to buy the car, BUY THE CAR!

If you get an SS, get the 2SS/RS. Why hold back?

Personally, I think the C&C package is well worth it. But you need to decide what is best for you.

I'm kinda in the same position so I feel your pain. I'd like to save some money by going 1SS but I really want the C&C pkg. Chevy did that on purpose of course.

I will be in the same place or my son will when he or I get one. That will be hard, get what you can afford. I am not to worried about leather seats but C&C with bluetooth would be really nice, and I would like it. Although to me its a MUSCLE car not a Bimmer, but that would be why I consider a 2SS because of C&C pack. But do what you can afford and is best for you. I got my Chevy Impala Base Sedan in 2001 when my Olds died (un-planned) and went with a nearly stripper base with cruise, and RDS/tape deck, wish I would have gotten an LS with a cd player now looking back... The reason I did was I wanted a smaller payment and had just got done adding onto my house. So take that for what it is worth. Still when my son or I get one it most likely be a 1SS with no RS package and polished wheels. Trans is a flip of the coin.

You damn right the only big screw-up on this car, if you want to call that big. I don't want leather so it makes it easier for me to be cheap. Thanks GM or I would be shelling out another 800 bucks for it.

Exactly, I don't want leather either but I might deal w/it for C&C.

I agree. If you get the car, get THE car.

Sometimes it's wise to hold off a bit and save. Good things come to those who wait....hold on....I know we've been waiting for a long time. But, if you were to hold off a little while longer, could you save more?

Also, you might want to take into account that there's 12,000 or so orders kind of in front of yours. That's going to take a little while to get through...so, a little more time to save.

I'd go w/ the $28 more per month option. It's not just leather you get...after all.

I have purchased several cars in the past that I "compromised" on. Every time it cost me more in the long run to make the compromised car right. If you can afford the difference buy the 2SS with no regrets.

With the 2SS you will get the console gauge package[ worth having as the interior is a little plain] plus additional steering wheel mounted controls , longer o OnStar and voice navigation to play with for a while. If you can fit it into your budget I think you will be glad you did.

$28 difference? That's a no-brainer for me as well.
As been stated before, if your heart wants the 2SS
and you settle for the 1SS, you will probably regret
it down the road. I'd go for it too.

By upgrading, what kinds of upgrades are you looking for? HP gains or cosmetic "upgrades"? I would question as to what kind of HP upgrades your talking about to make you decide over a 1ss or 2ss.

As for you asking how much getting for you to do leather yourself or having somebody do it. Each place is different, I would suggest calling some people up and getting quotes yourself. I could be cheaper depending on where you live.

I would suggest looking at everything you get with the 1SS and compare it with what comes in the 2SS. I went the 2SS route because I wanted a 2SS, and all the bells and whistles that come with it.

28 bucks extra a month for a 2SS. Is it really that hard to sacrifice 28 dollars a month for a fully loaded 2SS Camaro? Quit smoking, eat out half as much, cut your DVD buying in half.

Just my 2 cents.

Same here... I've regretted it every time!
Not sure why so many people don't like/want leather. I've never had it in my own vehicle, but my parents have always had it, and my ex had it in her car. LOVED IT!! Iit's way more comfortable to me. I hear people say they slide all over in it... I can see that but I am a big guy I guarantee you there wont me room in that seal for me to slide around in.

Anyway I agree with most have already said. When I bought my 2003 GMC Sierra it was fully loaded minus leather and onstar, I miss that truck so much it had all teh bells and whistles, my FJ did not, so I had to install all the cool stuff I wanted in it... what a pain, I'm getting too old for that... LOL

Quoting Chevyhawk buy the 2SS with no regrets! you wont be kicking yourself "Dang it I need that $28 a month!!" But you will kick yourself saying "I really wish I had the C&C"

I was getting a 1SS, but I'm getting a 2SS now because of the reasons stated in this thread...

... I think I will regret getting a 1SS later.

You said it yourself. You really like the leather and C&C pkg. I think you'll be regretting not getting the 2SS. Me, I don't like leather but I really wanted the C&C pkg. I still went for the 1SS. It's not going to be my daily driver, and I am going to use the price difference for mods.

Good luck with your decision though.

Ok to answer a few of your questions......

1. Its not only $28 but an extra $1000 i have to put down to get that payment

2. I do not want the RS package at all (hate the headlights, no offense)

3. Not interested in the 4 pck gauge, ahhh maybe i would be idk.

4. I can afford both either way, dont need time to save. Just wanted some extra money for mods. Yes it will be mostly for bolt ons for power and a few minor tweeks in cosmetic ext and intr.

5. Im thinking i will definitely regret not going 2SS.

Not sure where you got that info, but the transmission type has nothing to do with 1SS vs 2SS...manual and auto are available in both.
