Dilemmas

What difficult choices are you having to make about your future new ride?

There's no doubt it'll be a manual SS/RS for me; that was the easy stuff... but I can't settle on a color, a color for my stripes, if I want them from the factory/dealer or to have someone paint some especially for me; do I want the bada** ambient lighting with the inferno orange patches or something more subtle, and then I'm also torn between the roof ditch moldings and the sunroof... I don't want a convertible but dang a sunroof would be nice.

I'm terribly indecisive as it is, but luckily I have a while before I HAVE to make any decisions. I do plan to go see as many colors as possible at a dealer. I think in the end, it will come down to how much it all costs. What's your dilemma; and what will be your deciding factor?

On order is a 1SS/ RS IBM with Black Rally Stripes, Beige Interior, manual transmission and a sunroof! Oh, and a stereo upgrade too! Ordered from CamaroScotty in WI. How will I get my baby home?

My dilemma is, i want the V6 RS, but i want EVERY option i could possibly want, i hope it wont cost me an arm and a leg and a pinky finger. And i want to beable to get polished aluminum wheels not the RS painted ones.

and another dilemma is worrying about where to get my camaro from....

Do I spend the money on the leather + ambient light package and then find someone with cloth to swap with, or do I save the money/difficulty and live without the ambient light package.

Do I spend the money on the RS package, or just try to get the individual features I want afterwards.

Do I kill myself or divorce my wife because she won't let me spend the money we don't have on the Camaro I don't need...

My only dilemmas are that i dont know how to drive stick (I'm working on it, i dont know anyone who owns one that can teach me), and I dont know if i can get the SS depending on cost. I'm pretty sure it will be under 30K, but im just waiting until the info is released.

I would not mind the auto with paddle shifters, i just want lots of ways for modifications, which kinda means you need the LS3.

V6 or V8? RS on the V8 if I can't get it?
Could I live without those HIDs?
Auto or manual? the 6Ls, are phenominal...but I want a stick! There's the GOOD paddle-shifters, though....
Cyber Gray, Silver Ice, or Aqua Blue? But Inferno Orange is kickass!...
Leather, or no? But I want the ambient lighting.
Wheels? Chrome? But dang those base wheels look good!
Modifications? Would it be worth it on the V6? Or should I spring into a higher game? Who's gonna supercharge this thing? Pedders sounds good....
HUD? What about stereo? I don't listen to it all that often; but I don't need a HUD either, the gauges are right in front of me...
etc
etc
etc


...yeah, there's quite a few dilemmas for me.

Just buy it with the stick and enjoy learning on a new car.

I am going through that same dilemma, of course killing myself is not an option and I won't divorce my wife.

When I took my car for a test drive, I didn't stall until the end when I had to make a difficult left turn into the lot.

When I had signed and the car was finally ready for pickup, I went to get it, backed it out of the parking space fine, and...stalled 3 or 4 times before I realized I had just put it in 3rd. I was so sure that the problem was how awful I was at operating the clutch that I didn't even check the gear selection, which I was very confident in.

Can't Kill her, she doesn't have a high enough insurance policy. But a visit by Scott might work, I wonder if Shunt needs company.

The first time I ever drove stick was when I took delivery of my 1984 Camaro (my first brand new car). I was fine once I figured out where Reverse was. I sold it in 1991.
The next time I drove a stick was when I drove my 2004 BMW 330i home from the dealership. I never practiced or took lessons. If I can do it, anybody can.

I have to say the hardest thing to decide on is the color. IMO most of the colors I have seen so far looks awesome. I would like to get the Bumblebee paint scheme if GM offers it, but it has to be that yellow. No matter what color I choice I would likely get stripes with it. Plus, I want to get the sharkfin painted the same color as the body color. It's an eyesore. It's too bad they can't design a paint that can change color at the push of a button, maybe someday with nanotechnology?

The only other thing I am thinking about is should I get a Z/28 or an RS SS? Since no details are available on the Z/28 (The biggest thing being if they will offer an automatic, it's fuel economy- hoping for 20 MPG or higher, and the price) I can't decide on this yet. If it comes in below $40k fully loaded I would buy, if it cost much more than $40k I will probably go with an SS. I don't want to be making car payments until I am 30.

What I do know is that I will find a way to own this car, it will be fully loaded, and it will be a V8 coupe. With the sunroof and automatic tranny of course.

Really my only dilemma is do I want a hardtop SS and have to pay for premium gas (with worse MPG's) and insane insurance or do I want a really well fitted V6 RS 'vert with lower upkeep costs?

Amen, I learned on my brand new 'Stang with no lessons whatsoever. I just had someone who knew how to drive it come with me and drive it away from the dealer then, once we got to an empty parking lot, I took over. It kinda sucked not being able to drive it off the lot myself, but it was still well worth it. Plus if I'd have messed up the clutch or anything, it still had a full warranty.

That's my dilemma. I think getting the SS with the RS package will suffice for me. It means I'll be sacrificing other luxuries, but all I want is my 400 horses.

That's my dilemma... my wife isn't going to park her Trailblazer outside, so do I have to park my 96 Camaro outside or the new Camaro? I would hate to leave either outside... So, I will likely have to move in order to get a 3 car garage or build another garage at my current place.
