Prices, Packages,Models?

V6 or V8?

Which one is better. i know i know v8 probably is but is it worth the more money? hows the automatic tranny with the paddle shifters? I am really thinking about possibly buying a camaro im just trying to map out the prices. Are the different packages worth it? can you trim off some techy add ons that jack up the price?

As far the v6 v8 question.. get what you want and will be most happy with..for me the V6 was a good choice, I don't have to pay high risk insurrance and it still has enough power to make me happy, and it's something that I could buy and not break the bank over...I figured the only reason I wanted the RS package was for the Halo lights but I figured I could get them after market so I saved 2K by not getting the RS package..But I'd say the convienance and conectivity package is a must because it's like $500 for an automatic starter, bluetooth, MP3 compatiable, ect...where you would spend 500 alone on an automatic starter after market anyway.

Welcome

V6/V8 is a personal decision honestly. Depends on what YOU want, what you want to spend and how you want to drive your new Camaro

hmm thats fair. i really would like a ss rs but they are pretty pricey. I hear the v6 auto shifts hard like a v8 anyway and i can deal with 304hp (coming from a 210hp v6 auto mustang) i think if i was to get a camaro i would just go all out, why not when ur already spending 30 ish grand lol.

The paddle shifting feels really good. Many people give me **** for going with an automatic, but after they ride with me in manual mode they normally change their opinions. It really is a different experience.

The only thing I have against the design is the shifting buttons don't float in place. They're attached to the wheel which means in turning situations you might have to look for the button to change gears.

thats good to know dude, does it shift hard in manual mode? and do you notice any of the safety features to protect the tranny?

It'll shift hard. If you're gunning it and shift at a high RPM it feels like a manual. When you downshift you feel it as well. You can notice the RPM cap. I felt it as I was doing doughnuts the other day haha

Anything else that you want to know feel free to ask away.

your exact same car is at a dealership right near my school, saw it go out for a test drive today. That thing really catches your eye the yellow is so vibrant. One question about the interior: does it feel cheap, or does the like dash/center console feel like cheap plastic?

Not at all. The whole thing feels like it was built well. The seats are very high quality and are very comfortable.

I'm sure you've seen the inside and stuff, but here's a picture of mine anyways:
