It's like asking which is a better cut, a filet and a bone in ribeye....it's a personal choice only you can make! Not a filet and canned tuna.

When she runs that splitter into a curb parking the car you'll rethink wanting her to drive it as much as she can.

The cars going to have better resale value down the road with recaros
Building the car for her? Not at all. I know what I want, I know what she wants, I trying to see if I can convince her that the 2SS is not worth the money over the 1SS.

As far running the splitter into a curb .. then I buy a new one. A guy at work who refuses to let his wife drive his Challenger said something similar, in his case he was afraid my wife, who will be learning to drive stick with this car, would kill my transmission. If that's what happens, so be it, it's only a car. People learn by making mistakes and if I wasn't willing to have some mistakes made, I wouldn't be buying this car.

I do not car about resale value. This car will be worth nothing when the time comes to get rid of it.

Are you 100% sure? Because I know they engineered two versions: One for the ZL1 and 2SS equipped with power actuation and heat - and another with manual slide and no heat for the 1SS and Z/28. Both have suede/leather combination....

I don't know if the manual slide will make a different to the OP.

I sat in the recaros. Nice seats! But a bit tight for me, I like to lean a bit.
They are similar...just a bit skinnier than the ZL1 seats, and a bunch more supportive. The thing that took the longest to get used to wast the shoulder supports. But now - I don't notice, and feel like I'm strapping into a spaceship every time I get in...so much support...so many gadgets...so much performance.

You're right. Should've been clearer. I was talking about looks and feel of the recaros between 1ss and 2ss. Same look, same feel.

So glad you posted. Is it just the slide aspect or are the Recaros in the 1SS different in their adjustability?

Somebody with 1SS Recaros needs to chime in cause I'm pretty sure they have heat and power movement in both 1 and 2SS. In post #3 of this thread you can see that the 1SS Recaros have both power controls.

Agreed. Need clarification on heated or not. But pretty confident they are all power

Again, it's the same seat. They don't have 1ss & 2ss recaros. It's just recaros. Same adjustability. Not sure if heated or not because that's tied into the car.

You say you wont pay over $40k...I paid $40k and change for a 2SS with nav, npp exhaust, and recaros. That included $1000 private offer and $1000 gm card. If you take out nav and npp exhaust you are just under $40k without needsd gm card money. I paid invoice minus holdback plus dealer fee.

I along with many, would never buy this car without npp. It's probably the most consistently required option

2SS, 1LE, NPP, and Recaros are coming out to a little over $42K. I don't have a $1K private offer nor do I have a GM card.

Minus the Recaros I'm a few hundred above $40K which is more than I wanted to spend, but perfectly doable.

+1 .. not a chance I will remove the NPP. Without either 1LE or NPP, I would not buy a Camaro.

I love the NPP exhaust too. You should be able to get a private offer, it is worth a try. Took me 15 minutes.

Basically you visit the Chevy website and an offer will pop up offering you $1000 off of a Camaro. Haven't tried it myself so not 100% on how it works. Should be able to get more info in the pricing threads.
