Hello Jules, Good to see there are more Camaro fans in the UK. As for advice, if you have bought cars in the past, then the experience is just the same, but much more exciting. Just be aware of the huge thirst of the SS, other than that, these cars are as well built and reliable as anything else on the road. I hope you are not the shy type, because once you drive one of these things, you WILL become the centre of attention.

All I can say is, if your heart says yes.....BUY ONE!!

I'm used to a bit of attention, I own a Delorean , had it just over 6 yrs. Now that thing is mental, people hang out of car windows with phones etc & you cannot put a tenners worth of fuel in, without it takes 20 mins.

OOOHH!! De Lorean, very nice indeed. I guess you don't really need much convincing to be adventurous, in your car choices then.

Cars turn me into a kid again too. I was 47, when I placed the order for my Camaro, from the factory in October 2010...FIVE long long months later I collected it, after being on this site practically every day beforehand, looking at pictures.

No need. There's a button to turn off traction control, and stabilitrac, to allow for a trip backwards into the scenery.

It does however default to on every-time you restart. Obviously wouldn't do so with a fuse pull.
