Congrats! I'm sure you'll love it
So this was unexpected... Two days from build to delivery... Got this from my salesperson at my dealer this morning!!
I will probably pick it up tomorrow or Friday, once I move some money around as I wasn't expected it so soon. Dealer still has to install the front splitter when it arrives in, but otherwise I can pick it up whenever I am ready.
So was it built on Tuesday or Monday ? One day or Two to get to Cleveland ?
Follow that break-in. GM knows what they are talking about. My LS7 consumed about 1/2 a quart of oil and sooted the tail pipes badly, but I followed break-in procedure and after about 600 miles, the tail-pip sooting stopped, and after 1000, the oil usage completely halted.Picked it up! Took it for an hour drive tonight along a scenic canalway, was awesome. Following break-in protocol for now, so limiting under 4K RPM and such... Cant wait to get full reigns! Picked up with 5 miles on the ODO.
Good looking car sir!! I too am not a fan of sunroofs. That Camaro should give you many trouble free miles. My uncle has always been a Chevy fan. He gave me a ride in his mid 90's Camaro with an LS engine in it. Holy Moly that thing handled like it was on rails!! When the back end came around you simply lifted off the pedal and stomped back on it to straighten it. I cannot even imagine what this new one is going to be like!!
Mid 90's ?? FYI, LSX didn't come out until 1998 model year on the F-body cars. Sounds like your uncle had a LT1 Camaro ??
Thanks everyone! Took it for a few nice rides this weekend (~ 100 miles) and loved every second of it. Not a big fan of the run flats (a bit noisy for sure compared to the used ones I drove with non-RF tires), but those will be swapped in the coming weeks.
Picked up 20 quarts of M1 5W30 (From WM.com at $22.XX shipped each) to do the first oil change at around 1,500 miles, then again at 3,000 before switching to following the OLM. Picked up a AC Delco filter for the first change, but looking to switch to Fram Ultra at the 3K change when I get there in Spring most likely. Also planning on doing a drain/fill of the rear-diff fluid around 1,500... Seems to be suggested on various forums due to the initial wear metals and break-in occuring (with the appropriate A/C Delco Fluid).
Replenished all my detailing gear to keep up with this one... Will be giving it's first wash this week, along with a a bit of light correction (to remove some of the light swirls and such from the dealer pre-delivery 'detail'). Will be going at it with Meg's M205 prior to the Meguiar's ceramic sealant. I am impressed though, I have not seen any orange peel and the finish across the entire car is like glass. But maybe once I wash/detail it, I will notice some more flaws
