Pride? not hardly. From what I see here V-6 owners are going to have to always justify their decision in the face of some ignorant, rude SS owners and wannabes. Hey, I could have gained 1.3 seconds in the 1/4 if I spent $7.8k more, noooottt! I don't need the glory. Sorry but I doubt many SS owners will ever see a track but you can brag and more power to ya.

It seems that some here would just like to see the v-6 go away and that's a shame.

Yes. But we have the pride to stand up face to face with some ignorant, rude SS owners and wannabes and justify our decision.

I am getting a 2LT RS M6 in July. Times are tough, gas is costly.
I was looking for a midlife crisis car - saw the SS and I would buy it but I don't think the rest of the car is as good as that engine. (m8) That sounds bizarre I know but based on the car as a whole I'd rather pay 28K with the excellent v6 - it's a better match for the rest of the car. I'll buy a 2LT and see what happens next with the SS or maybe ..the zed.

7.8k more? Yeah if you are talking about a basic LS vs a SS2.... Most people I see that ordered V6's have been 2LT which is within $1000 of the SS1... Major difference being long term prices you pay with gas/insurance which I calculated to be estimated at $5000 difference over a 5 year period and 100k miles.

ya.... But if you willing to get the 1SS, then your willing to get a 1LT because options aren't an issue. So you need to compare $24k vs $31K...$7k difference, plus the estimated $5k in fuel saved over the years, plus the cheaper tires (assuming you stick to the stock 18's.

You have to ask yourself if a Stereo, C&C, RS pckg, guages and leather are worth $5k... Yes! if you want those luxuries. NO, if you dont give a crap

If you are willing to get a 1SS def does not mean you are willing to get a 1LT in fact for me it's just the opposite... If i got a LT it would have to be a 2LT I love the leather but for me it's leather or 426 HP I choose the HP.

But not everybody cares about the leather. For them the only difference between the 1LT and the 1SS is horsepower and a big chunk of dough.

And you can do a lot with 7k dollars in the horsepower department.

Thats my point, kinda. 1LT=1SS except a v8 (slightly better wheels)

2LT, then jumping to a 1SS is a goofy comparison unless all you care about is power. The reason people get the 2LT is for the Luxury/options. People who get the 1SS, get it for the v8 power. When money is a factor, its either speed or options... or neither... lol

Why would you even mention this? If you are talking about a horsepower department you honestly should just go with the V8 in the first place....

I love the luxury and options with the 2LT I was very close to buying one, I test drove the V6 from Avis and I loved it but the fact of the matter is at the end of the day I know I would have the car for 5 years and did not want to live with the fact that the V8 was an option and I did not get it every single time I got in my car to drive it.

Thats your opinion. And COMPLETELY contrary to the point of both my post and this thread.

Yes, the V8 will make more horsepower when you wring every last pony out of it than the V6. But we're not talking about 1600 hp drag cars here, we're talking about getting a 426 horsepower car for 31,000. And its quite possible to get the V6 for 24000 and add 122 horses to it for under 7000.
- X

P.S. - And well under 7000, for that matter.

Or make your exterior a mix of LT and SS parts. Who was the one here who did that on his V8 because he didn't like the mail slot? Was that Hylton?

Yup, Hylton. Though I think upgrading a V6 facia to an SS may be less acceptable... imho anyway.
