Just a nice looking grill you can get from SLP if I am not mistaken. Kinda cleans it up in front and looks a little meaner.

I know some people on here hate Camaro5, but they can be useful as a source for basic info sometimes. Heritage grill (http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1668764&postcount=19)

No, I live in Colorado. The Heritage grill was less then $200 when I got it from GM Parts direct, but it was more to paint it.

Yeah Aqua Blue was gone this time of year in 2010, that was my first choice originally. I believe IBM is indeed going away, just that the last of them are being built now. You picked a great color!

FWIW, I thought I read somewhere that the IBM was only going to be available as long the remaining inventory lasted.

So Midnight, what do you think of your new Camaro SS?

I love it!!! its an amazing car, very solid, handles like its on rails, stops great, power is great mid range and especially up top, shifts smooth as butter, only 2 things i dont like about the car is, 1. the clutch feels like it grabs high off the ground, def not used to that? are they all like this from the factory??? 2. the car is way too quiet for an SS lol, sounds like vacum cleaner lol, my freind has a 2011 RS with the 3.6 and its louder lol

Yes the clutch took a day or so to get used to, I think I even stalled mine going out of the dealer lot. You are going to want some mufflers or a catback to take care of the quiet sound. One of my first mods was magnaflows and then long tubes. She wasn't quiet anymore.

Yea same thing here i stalled mine out too coming out of there lol, so ur clutch pedal is high too? yea im def getting a Corsa catback sometimes soon cause i cant stand it being this quiet its driving me nuts lol, and i got a Halltech coming, thats awesome it probably sounds good, wut engine oil are u guys running in these things?? gonna drop mine at a 1000, is that oil life thing accurate? and wut should i look out for maintence wise or problem wise down the road with this car?

The car comes with Mobil 1 in the crankcase, I see no reason not to continue using it. It is good to make the first oil change early after it has been broken in. After that the oil life monitor is good to go on. There is a lot GM put into that monitor, not just engine run time. I have had no issues whatsoever on my car, but the warranty expires in July.

Thats good to know so i continue to use the mobil when i change with a k&n filter, so does ur pedal grab kinda high also?

Yeah, my clutch pedal is a little high. I am so used to it now, don't even think about it. I am getting close to the power level where I may need a stronger clutch.

My IBM 12 came with Dexos in the crankcase. I've heard that it's just GM's version of mobile one but I've also heard it is a dino/synthetic mix. I couldn't get a straight answer on Camaro5 and then I discovered they were mostly a bunch of elitist pricks so I left there and came back here. I hadn't been here since I old my Firehawk. Sorry I'm rambling.

I completely agree with you, everytime I go on that site I get frustrated. I hate to say it but it seems like most 5th gen owners are arrogant tools. Obviuosly none of the ones on this site though. lol

Do you have a '12 V6 or has GM stoped putting Mobil 1 in the SS? The '10's and 11's came with Mobil 1 in the crankcase.

Every site has a good number of arrogant tools. I know quite a few here and to a point where I'd say Camaro5 is better place to be for regional talk. I think I hear more about how new 5.0's are the shit and how 5th gens suck on this site then I do of any reliable or informed info. Maybe not in this specific section since it's for guys that have 5th gens. But I often am left wonder why those guys are even on LS1Tech if they love 5.0's so much.
