Smile New 2SS owner! A few questions...

Hi everyone. I just purchased a brand new black 2SS with the RS package last night. I've never owned a muscle car in my life, so the past day has been quite an experience. I actually look forward to driving again! Coming from a 2.5L Altima coupe this was a huge upgrade.

I do have a few quick questions:
  1. The OnStar nav is neat, but I would like to know what options there are as far as third-party head units with nav. I realize I could get a Garmin, but I like the clean look of a built-in solution.
  2. Some of my buttons seem to be a little finicky... Sometimes the windows don't express roll up/down even though I press them all the way down/pull all the way up. Also, does the sunroof not express close? It feels like it has that express "click", but it stops whenever I let off the switch. Can this be disabled/enabled with a button combination?
  3. Has anyone had a good experience black-chroming the wheels? I love the blacked-out look, but I haven't been able to find a quality custom shop that does it.
  4. Are there any "hidden" features (like possibly the express window settings) that would be good to know?

Thank you everyone!

Ryan

First off. Congrats on the new ride!!! Your gonna love it!
The sunroof does not express close. Think it's a safety thing.
For the side windows I find if you hold the buttons too long, instead of quickly engage and releasing them, they will not express up/down. And as you know, barely press them for manual control.

The sunroof doesn't express close so that stupid people don't lose their fingers

When we rented the 1LT, we had an issue with the passenger window- it randomly quit responding to the either window control. After we stopped and shut the car off it worked again Weird glitch...

And CONGRATS dude!

You may want to swap those polished wheels for the RS wheels (and some cash) if you're going to have them coated anyway - just a suggestion. There may be a member who would wants polished wheels.

Congratulations on your car!

Great thinking. I thought that too. The polish was listed at $470... Maybe I can get that credited towards a black chrome job.

Good choice!! I ordered the same. As for guys talking about a credit because it's part of the RS package... sounds like were just going to have to eat the cost?

Congrats and nice choice of colors.

However do bear in mind the RS wheels, should you trade, are PAINTED. The reason the polished wheels are more is simply because they aren't painted like the stock or RS wheels.

IMHO painted wheels = no. Powdercoated, chromed, polished, brushed, natural, all ok by me, but paint chips and cracks and cleaning brake dust off it you might as well take sandpaper to it for as long as it will last like that.

As for hidden features. Um, dont forget to pair your phone for bluetooth. Don't forget to store some names/numbers to hands free dial (press the talk button on the wheel and say store, then follow the prompts). Um, if you want the nav to not tell you upcoming turns say MUTE DIRECTIONS when you go to setup a route (I think you can do it at any point by pressing the blue button and saying that, not sure though, only used it once so far, less than a month into owning mine lol).

Nothing else comes to mind right away.

Are there other voices besides the male voice to
switch to?

I guess my only other concern is that I paid too much... Are most people still paying MSRP? I wasn't in a good position to deal.

I think most people now are paying a little less than MSRP. I paid around $2860 under (on a 2LT/RS) after $750 in miscellaneous fees, but that included $860 GM card earnings, and a $1,000 rebate for owning a pontiac.

I'm working on the auto-close sunroof. fingers shmingers, i want mine to auto-close:

Keep an eye on that thread, when i get it figured out/done, i'll be updating!

If your phone supports voice dialing, you can actually voice dial through your car (i.e., you don't have to store the number in the car's memory, but can use the contacts already stored in your phone).
To do this:
1) pair your phone with the bluetooth in your car
2) press the phone button one the steering wheel
3) say "bluetooth"
4) say "voice"
5) my phone then does it's usual "say a command" through the car speakers
6) then just say "call home" (or whatever contact you want to call

If your phone supports voice dialing through bluetooth, it works great. My phone is almost 3 years old (Motorola Razr v3m) and it works fine on that.
