We are paying attention!

You are going to like the new car. They handle like Go Karts when lowered and better sway bars, wait already spending your money for you! Enjoy it. I looked at buying one but that was before the ZL1 popped up into my radar.

Always need two cars! I prolly dive only 4 to 6 miles a weekend in my camaro. I do worry the same about ppl doing something to it or something ,even though that's what insurance is for! I like the mini Cooper too. Bit I am surprise that you didn't just get another camaro. because I couldn't see myself just going away from the 5th Gen. I would think another SS!

I got a new 2LT in October, and i admit, i am hesitant to drive it even (its alot less than the ZL1) , but its brand new, black, and i am picky. i think after the new ness lets up, i will drive it more when the roads and weather is better. but i look for far away places to park so dont get door dinged. OP, i would have kept the ZL1 and just got a beater for daily driving, for cheap. the ZL1 is a really nice car and i couldnt fathom being able to afford one of those. good luck!

Cooper is a fun car. I understand the stress of the ZL1 and hopefully you will be back in a Camaro one day. Best of luck to you!

No cost maintenance for brakes, fluids, oil changes, wipers, loaner vehicles, etc.

Oh, you meant at 36,001 miles. Got it. I'm sure he's worried about three years down the road.

My wife is very hot in my eyes which means I'd never get rid of her. She, unlike my Z gives me pure enjoyment 24/7 with zero stress. My Z gave me enjoyment but nowhere near the same 24/7 area.

Nothing wrong with a Mini. In fact I just picked up a 2011 CPO Mini S (28,000 miles) for my daily. Super fun cars!

Nothing wrong with a MINI. I had a 2005 'S' Convertible. It had the supercharger and I did a Dinan intake, 17% reduction pulley, Front and rear sway bars, adjustable four link rear, cross drilled/slotted rotors, short shifter, HR lowering Springs, custom paint and alot more. I would track it on a regular basis and it held its own against alot if cars. I did not stay with MINI as they went to a turbo set up and I not a turbo fan. I like having a supercharger. I went to ZL1 as I wanted American Muscle.
