engulfed in jealousy. congrats on the new purchase! keep the OEM wheels, too many people replace them with cheap looking aftermarket wheels and ruin the overall design of the car. there are very few aftermarket wheels that look 'right' on the new camaros. looking forward to more pics when you take delivery.

No change to wheels. These have the polished which I am up in the air over. I do like the 45th anniversary wheels and ZL1 rims and for 2013 new wheels are coming out too, I will not go aftermarket dont worry

Congrats!! Love the Camaro, been thinking about getting one for a crusing vehicle but just can't afford another car payment right now. Have fun and post pics!

Auto trans will likely be quicker in the real world than the manual. The numbers they publish in Car and Driver and other mags involve doing things to a car you'd never do to your own. I'd agree that a manual would probably be more fun than the autobox in a car like that but at the same time I'd want the car to be as quick as possible.

Looks god, congrats!

To answer the original question "what's better than a 6.2L V8", the answer is simple but kind of hurt to say.......Ford Mustang BOSS 302 with "track key" activated. Drove one of these, guy at work got one. WOW, crazy fast handles like it's on rails and is scary to drive. Was planning on a Camaro myself but after driving his car I am in love with a blue oval....(makes me cringe to feel that way but it's true). Very impressive car.

Hands down the best N/A car other than a vette. Boss 302 is just SICK.
