Since when has Top Gear ever done a fair comparison? I remember when they compared the SS to a Mercedes AMG. I mean, really?
What they need to do is a road trip like the UK guys do from time to time. Remember the trip where they took a ZR-1, CTS-V and an SRT-8 to the salt flats? That's what needs to happen with a ZL-1, GT-500 and an SRT-8. That I would watch.
well: vice versa
because the chevy dealer could not even deliver the basics
-wintertires: no offer
-gps satnav (euro camaros do not have onstar): no offer
-extended warranty: no offer
and because chevy has still no fixes for all the problems of the convertible tops (they are still producing convertibles in oshawa with unsolved top-probs) and many owners in the states (located only a few miles from the canadian factory) had there cars wasting more time at the dealer shop because of the top-probs (rub-marks, wateringress, breaking 5th bows, headliners falling off, canvas of the roof detaching and so on) and the dealers often not capable of solving the probs (can you imagine a german chevy dealer, who has not seen a camaro convertible ever before: the camaro was supposed to be a daily driver!)
so: the answer to your question is:
the camaro L99 convertible is on hold until the produce a reliable convertible and offer a complete car here in germany (for instance: you have to have winter tires on your car when you are driving in wintery conditions! by law)
as soon as they can offer that, we will surely order it.
by end of april the bmw z4 35i twin turbo will arrive.
little more expensive 69k instead of 48k for the camaro, but loaded, including top satnav, alunimum retractable hardtop, leather, wood, high back bucket sport seats, extended warranty and all services and maintainances included
so they only things do to
washing and filling with fuel
btw: car&driver test in may 2009: 0-60mph: 4,8 sec
and new for the 2012 z4 35i: raise or lower the roof with speeds up to 25mph
as soon as there is a complete and reliable offer we will order an L99vert:5go:

Had a quick question if you’ll could help. I have a 2010 Camaro SS and I keep getting the p0030 and p0135 code. I changed all 4 sensors and had the wiring repaired after rodents apparently chewed them up a bit. I know its unlikely but do you think theres a possibility that the ECM went bad...
Hello all, looking for your opinions. I recently sold my Jeep wrangler and looking to purchase my first wrangler. I have looked at both a 2014 camaro 2ss in beautiful shape 34,000 miles that is an automatic. I cant decide between it and a beautiful 2015 gen6 1ss manual with 63,000 miles. Both...
My 2010 Camarillo SS has 112000 miles.
Over the past 5k miles I have occasionally gotten in the car, inserted the key, turned the key (all dash lights come on normal) then when I go to start there is nothing no click no crank and the dash lights go off. It is getting very frequent and happened...
