Question Camaro 2015 1LT - Exhaust/availability questions

Hey all, my wife is likely getting a 2015 Camaro in the next few weeks, and we have a few questions after lurking here a bit soaking up some knowledge. I'll start by saying, I'm not a car guy, this car is for her. She grew up driving Camaro's and has fond memories of the rumble of a good muscle car.

That being said, we're looking to keep the price reasonable and as such will likely be going with a 2015 1LT. As a consequence, one of the main options we're looking at is the NPP exhaust(dual-mode performance).

When talking to dealers they have frequently referred to this(npp) as an rs package feature, but she doesn't really care about the rs enhancements and simply wants the rumble(not wake the neighbors rumble, just a little extra growl) with some other creature comforts (remote start, beige interior, rear backup camera, etc). One dealer suggested that if she simply wants the sound that it would be cheaper to put on a an aftermarket exhaust(gmpp for example).

So, two questions:

The npp with mild to wild switch interests her due to its flexibility, but is an after market exhaust a better option in this instance, due to the price difference and the likely hood that we'll have to accept an RS package to get the npp?

Secondly, is it likely that a dealer will be able to locate a car with these set of options cheaper than we could order custom?

Thanks for your time,
Durden

Thanks for your reply. Yes we weren't going to order until at least may 16th just in case the 2016 is just irresistible, or the price on the 15 drops significantly.

Understood. We're not expecting a v6 to sound like a v8, just looking for a little extra growl over stock. Thanks for your response.

My sixxer sounds great at full acceleration. Its loud, and not in the bad way.

But you don't get that V8 idle/rumble.

The V6 sounds a bit "whiney" in the low-RPM range, but once you hit 3500+ RPM it opens up and sounds great.

NPP + CAI is all I run.

Pull the fuse in the back (if you have a dual mode exhaust) and it'll stay open all the time, and the lower-RPM whiny-ness goes away somewhat.

No replacement for displacement.
