I read the owner's manual in the first few days. Good stuff.
That's where I found out about all personal config. stuff that could be done through the radio of all places. That was a surprise.

Oh... and welcome aboard. As a new SS owner myself I can assure you that you are going to have some serious fun in your new ride.

As already said, battery is in the trunk. But nobody mentioned that you can jump or trickle charge the car by using the posts in the engine bay. The big red (+) is obvious, but the (-) terminal is tucked next to the driver side fender. Just a little bare metal post sticking out.

thanks in advance
I know I had my car for months before I took a look. Of course I do not have a spare on my 2011. Does the 2012 have a spare, I did not think so?

Nope...no spare...for the SS cars, anyway. Why? Because you'd need a spare that's tall enough to have equal circumference with a non-flat rear tire because of the limited slip diff, and a tire short enough to match the front wheel, since the wheel sizes are different front and back. They'd have to give you two spares, which is too costly and would take up too much room, not to mention, add weight. Instead you get a fix-a-flat kit and a compressor.

I got the battery delete option. It absorbs gamma rays from the atmosphere for power.

Yep, findin' the battery took me a few minutes too. Puttin' it in the trunk is prolly a good idea in order to increase the weight ratio rear to front. For the same reason, I'm gonna' put an icebox for my Kenne Bell twin screw back there. It might as well be a big un' too. I figure maybe more than seven gallons. It'll hafta' be fabricated outa' aluminum to fit the space. Mebbe, it'll hold solid Co2 (dry ice) we'll see. I'll let y'all know how it goes.

I've read the manual for every car I've ever bought within the first week. Salesmen are pretty incompetent these days. Gotta learn how to use all the features yourself.

Makes searching for anything much faster.

Oddly via the owners manual ( Hard copy or online) can I find a pic specifically of the battery in its mounting location.......yet there are inordinate amounts of pic's, many are redundant, of lets say lessor important items, features and areas of the car. Have always wondered why the battery connection or disconnection points themselves were pictorially negelected. Does that manual even list the physical size of a replacement?

Is the battery in the trunk on a 2012 model?
