the novelty will never wear off on this car.
still so so happy in every way. i've lived in it since i collected it. you know it's even giving me 25 mpg european gallons that is. 25 mpg on a 6.2l muscle car. amazing.
damn everything is just incredible on our cars.
still looking for something to nag about. there is nothing. road holding is just mind blowing. on roads i have known for 15 years and on every other car i have owned have been tough on the car. this beauty sails through them. damn the suspension is amazing. i have magenride though.
any mustang owners u must sell your cars and buy one of these. wasting your time on the s550 platforms

My 2018 just had her 3rd birthday, and my grin still is the same as on day 1.

Yeah okay, a supercharger popped on it in the meantime with a few other mods, but this car feels like a Christmas present every time, even when driven "normally".


Today I dodged a(nother) **** cr-v that almost pushed me off the road, no turn signal, no looking in the mirror, just changing lanes out of the blue while talking to someone invisible of course. Luckily there was enough space and I kinda anticipated the dick move. Makes me appreciate keeping the car in one piece even more

Still in awe fellas.
oh yes.
one thing i'm very very fussy with is the way a car behaves as a daily driver. the steering input and general steering feel is very important to keep my OCD in check lol.
driving on uneven roads and constantly having to keep the car going where you want it is something i hate with almost every car i've had.
especially with cars with wide tyres.
ours cars just dont move at all. ok the car will jump about a bit but you never have to plan to keep a hold of the steering wheel ready to correct the camber or shocking state of the roads.
the car just ploughs through it without any input from me.
damn this car is good.
1000 miles on and still smiling and trying to find a single thing i dont like.
I DONT THINK IT'LL HAPPEN. and i am a very hard person to please believe me.

off work today waiting for my covid results. so getting paid to play with my new toy. going to put it on ramps when the sun rises and start coating the underneath with wd40.

Love seeing these updates. Has your camaro been turning any heads in Sweden? I can't imagine those are too common in that country. I have read there is a sub culture involving American muscle cars, but I was under the impression those were mostly older classics, and not new cars.

I went there some time ago, spent a vacation in the Lund area and didn't see any, but that's just one data point.

I'm not a swede either, but a dane who lives in Sweden, only 45 mins from Lund.


The swedish Raggare culture (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raggare) sure is something of its own. I was shocked when I first saw it.





Picture this

Man, you should consider a part time sales rep position with a Chevy dealership just to move a bunch more Camaros up there

HA HA.
that may work if i spoke swedish and if chevy sold camaro's here. they pulled out a few years ago.
some independent companies import a few each year though. swedes prefer that german junk like audi bmw mercedes and Vw.
why they buy that deprctiating crap i dont know.
