Looking at some Camaros

So i've been eyeing two Camaros at the local dealer. One is a '12 the other a '13. They are both 2SS with the RS and both have short throw shifters. So my first question is if anyone has experience with the optioned short throw. If you do, do you like it? Also what do you think the price difference between the two should be? Thanks!

13 gets the my link, but the new SS wheels that I don't care for, but that is subjective to most people, if you don't mind the wheels go 13.....IMO of course

Thanks, I understand the differences between the two MYs, but I want to know if a 2.5k price difference is enough.

if budget is a concern then get the one that you can afford, either way your still getting a V8, that would be enough incentive for me...LOL

Mine has the optioned Hurst short throw. It shifts fine and is comfortable when shifting. I have no issues with it.

Short shifters works like a charm.
If you get a 2012 with zero miles for 2.5k less I would take that.
IMHO

Honestly, the mylink is cool but it's not worth the extra money. Don't base your decision off of it. The first week you think it's great. After that you get over it. I don't even use it anymore. I get into my 2011 and I enjoy it more because controlling the radio and all that is so much easier lol. And if you already have a smart phone then why pay for the mylink. It's essentially the same thing.

I just got a 2LT/RS and My link is cool and all, but if you are btwn 2 SS I will go with the economy option. If you have the extra money, then Mylink rocks.

What's sad is that Ford charges almost 2500 for the touchscreen radio in the Mustang.

The hurst short throw is fine, you have to buy the 13 you already lost the money on the 12 because its a year old plus the my link is a nice option plus the steering upgrade.
