Good Picts, when do you get yours..?


as soon as my dealer is able to find solutions to the following topics:

-wintertires
-satnav
-extended warranty
-leasing conditions that fit our needs (it is not about money, it is about the conditions, like an insurance for coverage of the monthly payments in case of desease etc...)

the order will be placed...

Here in the U.S....a lease is a lease and does not involve an extended warranty..mainly because the lease ends in 24 to 36 months so why would someone want an extended warranty when the lease agreement generally covers all repairs. And there isn't any disability insurance coverage for a lease agreement only on financing for purchase agreements.

envy
i don't envy you

btw
you have longer warranties in the usa
ever heard of the 10 year warranty of Hyundai
or take a look here

Lexus Warranty and Protection



and there are insurance plans to go along with a leasing contract



and we have the same over here in the old world

take a look at the last page of this pdf

http://www.lanciathema.de/pdf/Lancia_Thema_Preisliste.pdf

and you will find (topic extended warranty)



and topic payment protection

Lancia





;) ever thought about this:

you lease a car for 2, 3 or 5 years, and if you are fed up, you give it back
(and you do not have any trouble of getting rid of it, no matter how faulty it is or how bad it market value is)
or: if it is still a gread pleasure and you still love it, you buy it out of the contract and keep it

that is how we did it with our hemi
btw: the hemi is still under extended warranty
as with many quality marques (for instance mercedes, toyota and lexus, volvo, vw) you can extend it up to 10 years

even gm-products (opel in germany) can be extended up to 10 years


on BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Services) they had a feature every afternoon called:

you learn something new every day;)

ok
for all those, who know all that boring financing and insurance stuff and are much more interested in the hardware
here some more pics



especially on dark colours those sun-glasses-taillights look pretty smart (they look ten times better in reality than on these pics)

the look pretty integrated, making the rear of the car appear even wider



this is what they look like at night (i.e. lights switched on)



this last pic is the result of many attempts to get just the right moment, when then indicator lights (they have to be in yellow in europe!) were on, to give you the impression what it looks like)

and finally a close up of one




what i cannot depict here is the change of the driving behaviour of the car

the alteration of the underpinnings for the european market seems to be what is available as an option called FE04 in the states

recalibreted springs and shocks and altered anti sway bars

the car feels like on giant go-card or formular one car

which mean that its manners (while being driven hard) are amazingly good in terms of grip and stability

the downside seems to be the nvh chapter

a lot of carmags praised the car for its reformulated setup.
in terms of driving it at the limit, i would agree
for every day use i guess i would prefer the softer us-setup
but look like i am the only one

my husband instantly fell in love with it.
he considered it perfect in any aspect...

and the grin was there still this morning, more than 12 hours after our testdrive yesterday!!!

I really like the tail lights, If mine had those I would not do my pending upgrade to the LED's. I really like the look. You really need to pull the triger and get yours. Since you love the HEMI and purchase it out right, why not just to ahead and get yours you will not regret it. IMO...

take a look at the extended warranty thread in this forum

we want a deal that suits ours needs perfectly

contacted a different dealer yesterday

he will try to figure all those points out


btw:

you HAVE to have wintertires on your car here (legal and insurance reasons)
the only homologized tires so far are said to be (by my dealer) those stock ZR summer times (making it illegal to drive the car in wintery conditions)

and there is another good reason for a set of best wintertires:


i do NOT want to end like this
(topic: buying a new car but being too poor for a set of wintertires)

this morning it is below zero, all is frozen and the car could not be driven
(it drives, but you will be in trouble if the cops pull you over, and you will be in mega trouble in case of an accident)

i want a legal car, that is the reason for buying at a chevy dealer

otherwise i could have had a camaro by indipendent dealers (in u.s. config (working sidemarkers, standard us tail lights and so on for a long time)

it is not my job to figure all that out

Totally understand and agree with the tire issue and the warrenty contract issues. I would beleive if a dealer (any dealer) wants to make a sale will do what ever is needed. A question about the tires and german law, I understand the requirement and agree, but when I was stationed there in 94-96 no one said anything to us service members stationed there that there was a requirement for winter tires, Now saying that I was driving a truck at the time and had truck tires that were all season. Never had any issues. I was at Spangdahlem near the Trier.

hi
you are right
by that time, you had to use winter tires in wintery conditions, but no one care as long as nothing happened (as chapter 1 of the highway code says that you always have to act in a way that no one else is in danger!)
so if you did not cause an accident, no prob
if you had an accident in winter and having no winter tires on your car was at least part of the reason, the insurance would not pay for your own damage and charge you for the damage you have done to others...

the laws were changed last year
if you get caught driving in wintery conditions without wintertires the cops will offer you a ticket to pay
and you void your insurance for sure (i.e. it can ruin you)
i found different threads in u.s.-camaro forums and i will check that info with a tire dealer
i found a dealer in munich who offers homologated alloys for camaros for winter use
(this should be done by the dealership...
well, wasn't there a smiley icon holding up a sign: your dealer is an i....?)
wonder why this is coming to my mind right now

don't worry
if there is a way to get it done, i will find it
i found a leasing company offering leasing with all the insurance stuff (desease, dead etc)
have to find out if they offer leasing for camaros

last friday after the testride my dealer showed my the 3 leasing offers i asked for

headline
camaro 432 hp automatic

WE all know, 432 hp (LS3 european rating) manual or 405 hp (L99 european rating) automatic

do i have to say more?:rolleyes:

to be continued;)
