Just dont worry about it.

3 years from now you can pass it down, and upgrade to the Z28 when it comes out with Transformers 3

Yeah, I can see where most are just green with envy...tell'em to piss off...but I'm still ordering a 2SS on Wednesday after testing the V6 last month....if I weren't coming out of a '08 TBSS I would probably go for the V6....

Actually, yes. there are apparently some issues with a few Auto V8's, causing them to be quite slugish... so a V6 Camaro could, in some cases, beat the Auto V8...

One of my friends just got a 1LT and he said someone asked him "Where's the mail slot? sooo. you have a V6? oh..." and just walked away.

The V6 is plenty powerful, i dont know why so many people diss it.

2) PLENTY of power in the 2LT
3) I am hoping to pass this car down to my kiddo in three years, and she absolutely won't need an SS or the insurance rates to go with it (and probably even this car has a little too much juice for a new driver)
I agree for the same reasons. That is why I went with the V6 as well!

Of course the other BIG reason is my other car is a C6 Vette

Just kidding of course, I also have a 15 year old who is turning 16 in Jan. I made him a deal if he kept its GPA at 4.0 I would buy him a car WHAT WAS I THINKING The Kid has a 4.36 GPA and has 9 hours college credit already.

Hey could have been worse right? He has chosen well. Besides hard to say anything when I had a 71 Chevelle SS in Highschool.

At least I get to drive it till January!

You made the right decision.

I see a Z28 in your future, dad.

As far as worrying about what other people think, if you knew how little of it they actually do, you wouldn't worry about it.

Dude... you have a CAMARO... 'nuff said.

Yeah I'm having a hard time telling people that I ordered the V6 without segueing into a list of reasons why that sound like lame excuses. I need a snappy conversation ender that won't make me sound like I would rather have the V8 because I really wouldn't.

First thing I do is find out what rides they own. If they drive a Subaru outback or something like that I tell them what the Terminator told the motel guy from his menu selection in the first Terminator movie.

I was more or less making a joke. NO the V6 is not faster. There have been a few issues with the L99s. Most are fine.
