Order 1SS, 1SS RS, or 2SS RS ?

Should I order the 1SS, 1SS RS, or 2SS RS. I am going to mod the car and I figure some of the things the higher models offer I will remove anyway or will see minimal benifit for anyway, and the things I do want I can add later leaving more money in my pocket up front to mod the car right away. I'm planning on getting HRE P40 wheels, Nitto tires, Pfadt coilovers/sways/bushings/strut tower/ect., forged 418 shortblock, whipple supercharger, full exhaust, and racing seats. I plan on keeping the car for a long time. I like the RS headlights but have no need for the RS wheels since I will be getting the HREs. Does the 1SS still have the cloth across the dash?

I believe the 1SS RS retains the cloth dash trim like the 1LT.

If you want to have more money for mods, 1SS, If you want the car to look good and go fast 1SS RS.

I'd say 2SS. I know that you'll swap out the seats, but there are too many other interior goodies (bluetooth, usb plug, steering wheel controls...) that would be a PITA to add to a 1SS.

Of course if you don't want any of that then just get a 1SS and save the extra cash for what you want.

Just get the 1SS.. the RS is a waist of money in my opinion if you are getting the SS.

many people like the looks of the regular halogen lights and fogs better than the HID's, since they are exactly the same as they are in the Transformers movie) The HID's and halo's were only on the concept, not Bumblebee..

Those who have the Boston Acoustics, do you recommend it? I don't plan on doing any sound system mods.

The Boston Acoustics is terrible in my opinion. The worst upgrade I paid for for my car. My 1989 Ford Mustang had a Mach 460 system that was 1000 times better. I recommend getting a plain 1SS, and upgrading the sound system yourself. Why spend an extra $500 for crappy sound that you have to throw away and replace anyways and then spend another $500 or more for the upgrade. I know many of you have enough money that you got a 2SS and replaced the sound system, however to me that is a silly thing to do.
