Picked Up the New Ride.

Just bought this bone stock 2011 2SS/RS up in northern Maine. Had only 8k miles on it, never seen rain/snow, was absolute spotless. Never been modded (except for the silly caliper covers and mud flaps). Drove 100 miles yesterday with the top down and loved every minute of it.

Car definitely needs new exhaust! Coilovers are on the list and not sure what direction to go with performance (SC or CAM+headers+?). Not looking for huge HP, but that two ton+ vehicle needs some extra giddy up.

A little bummed it needs to be put up for the winter shortly, but then it will give me the down time to think about mod installs.

CONGRATS on the 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, wive's, husbands, girlfirends and boyfriends 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!!

Beautiful ride, enjoy ! Are mud guards a negative or are they worth having?

Just curious on the coil overs comment, do you plan to track this car a lot? If not, why coil overs?

#1 Ride performance/adjustable
#2 Ride height adjustable
#3 Do it right the first time

Form and function all rolled into one baby.

I don't track my cars, but it's nice to know that I can(and it doesn't have to be a "track" to track my car if you catch my drift). I had BC's coilovers on my STR8 along with other suspension upgrades and that thing was a rocket-ship on rails. Suspension IMO is the best upgrade to any marginally fast car as nothing will put you in the ditch faster then sloppy handling(and driving).

Mind sharing how much you paid ? some members like myself like to get a good feel for what people are paying for what, so when it's time to buy / trade in and upgrade, we have a better idea what has been typically paid.

I myself paid $18,200 for a 2010 2lt / RS with 29,000 miles .

Congrats on your new car!
Before you spend money on mods, read about the fuse pull mod in the V8 section of the forum. It's possible your car has run on regular grade fuel and the engine control module is protecting the engine by running the low octane fuel and timing table. There may be some no cost additional horsepower hiding under the hood.

The V8 section of our forum is a great place for research, lots of opinions and experience there.
My car has CAI brand intake with scoop, ARH Headers, Vengeance Racing custom grind cam with the necessary supporting mods to the valve train for reliability, and tune.

Enjoy your new car!

I paid 27.5k Not super great price, but cheaper then I could find around here, and as I noted in the OP, this was a cream puff, which I didn't mind paying a little more for the piece of mind. The only real tangeble goodie I got with the car was the rear wind deflector and real expensive fitted car cover.

Skip the coil overs and go with air bags. Then tell me how you like it because that's the route I've been considering for mine. Awesome performance with gentle ride.
