Drew Its only 150% on top, so a new Camaro is 150000$ :-)

I paid 17000 Eur in Germany 2 weeks ago, just had the car through an extensive vehicle inspection a couple of days ago road tax is 1500 $ a year here in Denmark

Yes I think Gen 5 Camaro have settled in the price

Thought Sweden is getting more expensive to own cars with big engines after the Green wave have made its fog all over Europe and especially Sweden ?

new cars registered after july 2018 that arnt eco friendly have trippled in price for road tax.
tbh owning a nice car like a camaro here dosen't really cost more than our hyundai tucson diesel does. similar road tax and insurance costs.

Is there a market in Europe for highly modified Camaros? I have a 2013 2SS/RS with 757 whp (565 kw). LSA supercharger on a LSX crate motor, 4L80e trans and ZL1 backhalf. Plus a bunch more stuff.

I would suggest an AllData subscription. This is what a lot of mechanics use and is fairly cheap.

There might still be, but here in Denmark the inspection is very restrictive

Blocket.se in Sweden

Mobile.de in Germany

Is places for selling or Ebay.de or Ebay in UK

Thanks. I thought about Japan but inspections are impossible on modified vehicles. I could easily get 10 million yen if I could get it in the country.

There was a time where 2010/2011 service manual free download pdf was available here. I have it. But it’s locked into iBooks and I can’t seem to get it out when I put it there and the download is far gone
