What are V6 real world experiences
Those of you who already have a V6, can you give me your honest real world impressions.
What kind of MPG do you seem to be getting. I see estimates every where from 17/24 to 18/29. I'm sure that the numbers might be off a little right now because being so new I know my foot will be a little heavier now than it will be in another year or so.
What about the sound? I know it's not a V8 but does it still sound some what like a muscle car or more like 350z or G37 type car. I'm sure one of the first things I'll do is put an exhaust on it and I'm hoping it won't sound like a rice burner. Hopefully more like a race ready Porsche than a 16 year old's Honda with a 6" round muffler.
It sounds like the power is pretty good from what I've read so far. Any regrets about not paying the extra for the V8?
I haven't been able to test drive or ride in a V6 yet and I'm just trying to reassure myself that I shouldn't be regretfull that I bought the V6 instead of stepping up to the V8. Right now it only makes sense for me to get the V6 since it will be a daily drive, less sticker price, cheaper insurance, cheaper gas, and 3 boys that will probably take over the car in the next 8 - 10 yrs. However, I can only imagine if my dad would've bought a First Gen Camaro brand new and had to get the 295 HP 350 vs the 375 HP 396. At the time it might have been better for him using the same reasons I mentioned but now I would be thanking him for getting one in the first place but really wishing he would've paid the extra $$$ for the big boy on the block.
I also wonder if it would be smart to get my hands on a V8 before the government kills them within the next 5 yrs. That might make the SS worth more or at least hold it's value 10 yrs from now.
