Thanks for the info on the BA system. I was not impressed with the Bose on my other GM cars (especially the CTS) or the Monsoon on the earlier models (too much boom/thump in the Monsoon). More reasons now to be looking forward to delivery!
And great to hear GM is planning on ABL and possibly HUD possibly being retroed to early production models at a later date. You guys just made my day.

Boston Acoustics was REALLY impressive. I turned it up and again, was impressed. My wife really liked it too and said it sounded great. That means a lot coming from her. This is why I always wanted BA for the sound system. GM kicked @ss and listened on this one!

Throttle response really is AWESOME in the auto...I mean....woah!

Ambient lighting was working in the SS's. During the day, you can't see it. At night, it's a soft glow. You had to cup your hands around or put something above the light to create a shadow in order to see the light. It did look GOOD! ABL won't be available on the first year run, but the team is still working on the issue with the dash to have it available for the next year run. They also realize that first year buyers will want to upgrade/retrofit their ABL to have it installed in the dash....they are working on making this transition possible for first year buyers.

I was very impressed with the cars at the show. Even through I got to drive Dons yellow SS here in San Antonio last month, I must say....... That OM 2SS was a HUGE refreshment!!!



ON another note.....


At first sight (and on a Solstice), I didn't really like the Inferno Orange Metallic. Now? I LOVE IT. IT IS FREAKIN' AWESOME!!!! All you guys who think it's a color that is just a bit off REALLY need to see it IN PERSON on the Camaro. Holy.....
So do you think you made the right choice in getting Cyber grey vs the Inferno Orange?? I am glad to hear the ABL on the dash is going to be worked on for next years run. Can you find out if it is possible to get it installed on a 1SS as well?

did they say the ABL wasnt going to be available this year? I thought they were already putting it on the doors? Or did he mean the dash for next year?

Im sure. The dash is the same on both the 1SS and 2, so I would think so. Just be prepared to throw down some dough for it, they didnt say anything about being cheap.

Yup, It really seemed to have a perfect mix. You could feel the bass, but it certainly wasnt overpowering, like some systems that seem to just depend on the bass to sound good.

Yes, it was great to hear that! Glad to be of service my man.
