Congrats, the Ls is a blank slate coming from an LS owner you'll love modding it even with minor aesthetic mods

Good move. It's an amazing car. This fellow buyer of the LS felt like he was stealing (at list price) from the dealership in November 2009 when he realized the thoughtful design, careful manufacturing, and extensive content Chevrolet puts into this "base" model. I am more amazed every time I think of this.

By the way, I forgot to mention that my 18x8 Enkei Tuning Raijins are up for sale at a very good price. See the classified under Wheels and Tires.

RE: Just an LS

That's what I thought when I bought my Camaro. I bought mine a little over a month ago and with my budget all I could afford was the V6. However a month into driving this beast I don't regret it at all. There's power in this V6, I love it!

I honestly prefer a 6. It's got all the accelleration I want and still gets good mileage. For me having an SS or ZL1 would be like using a bazooka to shoot a deer but that's just me. I really don't need to go 170 MPH, and it goes from 0-60 almost as fast as a Ferrari Testarossa so I'm ok with that. I really don't need more. If I'm financially able to at some point I would get a Lambo for the over the top car. I like having my LT as a permanent every day car

I love the forums. So many sexy cars to drool over and entertaining comments to read.

BTW from Northern Nevada! There are lots of Gen5 Camaros up here but they don't really meet up... I see more of the classic year vehicles meeting up here. Vegas seems to have a great Camaro club.

Congrats on your new camaro! No worries about owning an LS, you can always mod the way you like if you want to change anything. I have 2LT/RS V6 automatic and love it. I can't drive a stick either but have lots of fun driving it in manual mode with the paddle shifters. Added a cold air intake, solo catback exhaust & ported throttle body. Has enough power for daily driving and that is all I need. Someday down the line if you want more you can trade up for a V8 or always supercharge your V6 if you decide you want more power. Enjoy and welcome to the family!
