Ok, I have gotten that out of my system. Maybe this will change. Or, can I do a custom order?
i have used my truck for work and gotten mud, concrete, plaster, and paint on my seats and you would never know. Leather doesnt crack, vinyl does though. and now you cant get it custom without.

i think so big of a step between the two is a great thing, i think it shows that they are going to sell the 2ss at a closer price to the 1ss to make people want to spend a little bit more and get the 2ss over the 1ss

You think you're mad at this, go to a Toyota dealer and get ANY of their cars with leather...... you have to get all the bells, whistles, kitchen sink, garbage can, and sump pump. Even the extra float you'll never use.

Damn, the only thing I really wanted that isn't available on the 1SS is the auxilary gauge package . I may have to man up to the 2SS.

This type of misinformation is why leaks are bad. We should be able to get the aux gauges separately at the dealer.

Confused or bummed, from the look of this I HAVE to get the 2SS for the 4 pack gauge, does that sound right? I don't really want all the other things, guess I mean I don't need it and don't want to pay more for it. Does that sound right to all of you?

Phew. Loks like almost everything I want is in the 1SS which means my dream for the V8 is alive (until pricing destroys it). I'd like the sterring wheel controls added. Other than that I'm thrilled. I didn't want the leather seats and thought I'd be stuck with them on the SS.

ANYTHING CAN BE A DEALER INSTALL.
Remember when the 1982 Camaros came out? You could not get a 305 L69 in Canada for a while. I was working at a Chev dealership and got the info about differences from a dealer in Seattle. My friend then custom ordered the changes to be dealer installed before delivery, therefore had the first L69 in Canada and with a full GM warranty.

no the AFM L99 and the Auto cost more so they are the optional drivetrain options, if you look at the free flow options the auto is A = Available = Optional

Well, the way I look at it, 1SS starts out at a higher price anyway. Since so many features are common to both SS trims I'm HOPING the price difference isn't that great to upgrade to the 2SS.

thats whats wrong with this damn country, everyone wanting to pay things off over time with little to no money down.

ive been stashing money away for the last 2 years for this car. because I plan on putting a large down payment on it.

and i understand, not everyone has money to spare, but if thats the case, then you dont need to be buying a new car in the first place.
I've put $500 per month in a savings account since February, so do the math. Thanks for considering that I could possibly be what's wrong with this "damn country."

But, is it that much to ask? Maybe I want to know whether or not my SS will cost $32k or $38k. Maybe I want to know if it's worth upgrading to the 2SS package. Maybe I want to know if my payment will be $450 or $600+. Maybe I don't want to sign my life away on a car that I haven't physically seen or driven without knowing how much it's going to cost.

McDee, I'm with you with the curiosity on the pricing and knowing it'll affect my decision overall, however maybe you should consider saving longer to compensate for the expensive options with your down payment... Anything you put down lowers your monthly payment and you don't pay interest on it.

As for me, I'm going for the 1SS, Auto, and RS pack, which I expect to be around $32-33. While I'm also waiting on pricing and know that if it's $35 I'll be getting a V6, I'm still going to save and get mine later, after the HUD and all colors are available, possibly even in 2011 because I'm not going to take out payments on a car I can't put at least half down on. I make $10/hr and live with my parents, but I'll be using that savings on rent ($700/mo) towards my car, and know that even if it takes me two years, I'll have way lower payments, probably a shorter payment plan, and will pay way less for the car overall in interest. Waiting is hard, but working hard for small wages to compensate impatience is harder.
