I'm driving a Saab 9-3 Turbo every day... I drive 50 miles each way to work and as fun as the Camaro is, I just don't want to put miles on it every day like that.

Although.... if I sold the Saab there are some Camaro upgrades there....

I run nothing but 93 in both cars.

N. Ky/Cincy here. Like AdamZ I drive mine every day. LS3/M6. Snow tires, common sense, learning to feel how the car grips, and learning how to rock if you get stuck are your friends.

Drove 3 NW Ohio winters with a 6spd LS1 Trans Am with all seasons. Only had issues with hard pack snow but so did all the big 4x4s and Subarus.

Also even though my gut and wallet hate it, 93 octane only. :/

Which is why I switched to Nitto Motivo tires. Much better traction in the rain.

Daily driven here.

So far, no issues in any weather. Grabbed some all-seasons before winter, had no issues.

Daily Driver. Except in the snow. Or Rain. Or if it looks like rain. Or below 32c. Or through construction sites. Or on gravel roads. Other then that, yep, a Daily Driver.

I have a '13 2ss RS Camaro that is not my daily driver. I drive the Camaro for fun or when it is going to be nice out. I also have a 2012 Volt I use for daily commutes, and a winter beater for when its really crappy out.

Daily driver here. Made it through the first Minnesota winter with only a few minor quirks but that was more my learning curve for a RWD vs. front than the car. Winter tires are a MUST though. Noticed a huge difference in handling in the snow right away.

DD here unless there is snow on the ground then, it's the Wife's AWD MTX. Due to the cold weather, the P-Zero's were almost un-driveable below 32 degrees (hard as rocks). I replaced them with General G-Max All Season Radials and now have no troubles.

My SS is my dd, unless there is snow on the ground.

I've driven it in minus 30 Celsius degrees weather (I live in Calgary, Canada) with the stock P-Zero with no problem at all as long as you are careful. If there is snow covered roads, I usually use public transit, im not worry about me driving my car, I do get more worry about other people not knowing how to drive in the snow and wrecking my baby even if i got winter tires. When I got it, I got 3M protection on hood bumper and side mirrors (to avoid rockchipping during winter and spring seasons) and once a year I take it for a "Krown" application (to avoid rust due to salt) that way, i can enjoy the SS with peace of mind !

Congratz! You'll enjoy your new ride!
