Just keep up with the normal maintenance such as replacing brake pads, oil changes, etc. and you should be okay with prolonging its life. You might want to break it in for the first 1000 miles before riding it hard if you intend to do so. I really didnt start pushing mine until 2000 miles. As far as comfort, id say just keep the car on a flat surface lol. I hate going through rough streets. The suspension and handeling are relitvley well designed so u should enjoy the car wherever u go. Thats just my opinion. Best of luck!

Well i figured sand and heat might be an issue. I would definatly get a car cover. They have ones specifically designd for the Gen5 Camaros but are about $100 US. I got cheap no-name brand car cover for $20 and it works fine for my use. My neighbor has cats that love to sleep on top of cars... but not Mine! As for the heat, use an armor all or vinyl protective application to prevent the dash from cracking over time. Use it on the leather as well to help prolong the life of the seats and interior as well. Id lightly was the car if sand is a huge issue since you can scratch the paint pretty easy with that. and lastly clean your air filter if sand gets under the hood. hope that helps

Welcome to the club Ahmed. If you love the look of the Camaro then you have to comprimse on the rest I guess.

The interior is poor in the Camaro, and there are many blind spots while you are driving so you have to be very careful when you drive it.

Chevy is a strong built car and if you are buying it through OTE then you will enjoy a good service unless you want to be a little nutty with mods like me !!

I disagree with that, Ive read up extensively on that matter, and asked an engineer about the same issue. But to each his own. You can read the following link, plus threads in the break-in section.
http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm

Bottom line is just drive it like you are always going to. Im a pretty rough driver with a very heavy foot.

P.S. Ahmed when are u getting your car?

Darkone, UT Engineer is referring to the user guide of the Camaro.

When are you getting yours ??

I saw a new red V6, do you know who it belongs to?

Cyber gray im getting mine in august/september sometime..yeah the red/yellow colors are regular orders, no idea who's driving em..all other colors are special orders..i ordered a SIM (initially I was getting cyber gray, but factored in dust and SIM hides it pretty well)

Ahmed I ordered my car in April as well!!..but mines coming 1-2 months after yours! Gonna call the dealer and give him some

Also don't believe in full insurance, waste of money imo. Drive like a maniac, but drive safe. Its a paradox i know, but it can be done Accident free for 5 years now, and only ever had one. Mashallah. Repair was 250 rials, which is nothing compared to yearly full insurance.

Did you check Royal Alliance, I got the full coverage (Oman+UAE) for OMR 860.

It is the lowest rate in the market I guess. Do it through OTE.

Darkone : Camaro is a devil ride so I suggest the full the coverage .

AXA rate 865 O.R oman+UAE + AAA one year
ABOUT 6.2%
reasonable

Yeah but be careful on how much your share will be in this case.

I pay 500 rials if the fault is mine !!

Thats if you are driving Yaris, Darkone not a Camaro. Camaro is classified as a coupe sports car and has a different policy man .

You are lucky .

I will go for AXA next time instead of RSA.

250 is better than 500 for sure.

I drive a BMW 325..but then again that was about 5 years ago.
So no idea what the policy is now. Anyway don't care, I still think full insurance is waste of money, only useful if you cancel your car, in which case you don't deserve to drive in the first place.
