Decision

Decided to buy a automatic 1SS Black, with RS package. Im gonna miss the Bluetooth from my 1LT, but it is worth it. I found a dealer Near me that had one at MSRP, and they offered me 27k for my car

will be posting pics tomorrow sometime.

Should of got a manual, hope it's not one of the slow auto's. I'm sure in a month or two you will be tired of it and wished you got a manual.

Manual > Auto on all accounts. Except if you've got one leg or something... You'll have so much more fun driving the car with a manual than you ever will with an Auto. Plus it's less temptation to occupy your otherwise-shift-hand with something like a cell phone or food

C&C package adds bluetooth, USB, leather wrapped steering wheel/shifter and cargo net to the 1LT. For some stupid reason, GM didn't deem it necessary to add this option to the 1SS.

damn, you probably could have gotten a fully loaded 2SS/RS if you had not gotten that 1LT to begin with.

I hope you enjoy the L99.

I love my L99....and this from a guy (me) who has always had manuals in the past on performance vehicles. No worries.

What about a hand on the back of someone's head?

Manuals are for people that seem to have something to prove.

I think it's somewhere around 20 days "after tomorrow......"

Did you get it?

Since the V6 wasn't working for you?

We'd love to see the pix and hear your thoughts.
