Happy new 1SS owner

Hello, I just purchased a 2013 1SS. I am really enjoying the car. It's fun to drive and looks great. (See pic attached)

I have been browsing through the forums for a few days...many thanks to you all, I have many ideas!

I have purchased a set of ZR28 rims to start with. Tires will be coming soon as well (looking for the longest lasting tread I can find). This setup looks amazing IMO!

Feel free to leave any advice for mods/upgrades! I am all ears...many thanks to you all.

Such a specific question...and I am not sure! It is a 6 speed manual and it came with a short shifter from the dealer. They also installed a ground effects kit, spoiler and a back up camera.

My next mod (after tires) is up in the air right now, as I really like what I have right now.

Congrats! You're from Virginia Beach too! That neighborhood looks familiar. What dealership did you get her from?

That pic was in Chesapeake

I bought from RK in Va Beach...can be tricky but I did alright. I'm happy with it, so it's a win for me.

Well well, I always say the best Camaro is always yours! Well drive it around, get a feel for it and think what you would change if you could. At that point you should be able to say with a certainty what you could do. I would reassess after a month or two and see how it goes. I don't speak for everyone but isn't the SS pretty well set up? I mean it goes way faster than you can go legally right, so what's next? Appearance. It's up to you.

CONGRATS on your ride and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, dad's, wives', husband's, girlfriend's and boyfriend's here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

Great looking car, enjoy. I also think the Heritage grill would look great with the mods you have already completed.

Beautiful car. I couldn't believe the difference stripes made on my car. So I would say put some stripes on here. the inferno orange stripes look really good on black. If you want to do something different, go after market and find something that matches the Crystal Red color. that color would look sharp as stripes on your black. The next thing I would do would be rims, but I'd just wait until its time for tires and do a wheel and tire package deal.I've been seening the guys out in Delaware doing something called Opti-coat. I googled it. its an acrylic clear coat that holds up agains scratches better then the factory clear coat. You might want to consider that too, to keeper pretty.

First mod ... a light weight pair of shoes. Preferably a lead free brand!

Welcome! Nice ride!

Car looks great man, but I'm not a big fan of the lip/side skirts/spoiler add ons... I don't like adding more weight to the car than it already has.
