Want your opinions on a Hot Wheels 2SS

Looking to get back into a Camaro SS, after having been without my 2002 SS for so long. I found a 2018 Hot Wheels 2SS Coupe 8spd, and just wondering what the general consensus is these days on the 8spd auto versus springing for the 10spd. Also, how would I know if this thing has magnetic ride control or not? And is it guaranteed to have NAV, or was that an option even for this one? And I'm curious to hear what a car like this should be going for currently? It has 19,700 miles. 3 of the 4 wheels have curb rash, and there's a few paint chips on the front of the hood. Should I buy this one or pass onto something else? They're asking $43,999 for it. Good deal or no? Are these rare at all? Resale worth a darn on this thing in a couple of years? All opinions are welcome.

That is a decent price if you need it now.... If you don’t it is a bad investment. Used cars are astronomically high do to new and used car shortages. That car probably was that price new in 2018.

I believe prices will stabilize within a year or so and that would probably be a 36-37K car. The other thing to think about is if you have a trade. The most likely will pay you alot more for that so maybe the high price evens out. I doubt any current camaro’s rareness will affect value.... maybe the yenko or callaway’s.

I believe the RPO codes should be listed on a sticker in the trunk.

Here is a thread with RPO codes:

Prices are a wildcard now with the chip shortage.

If you want to buy it then go for it because if you don’t you will be kicking yourself in the butt regretting not buying it. That’s my opinion/advice to you.

TL;DR: If you like the Hot Wheels package, go for it. These will be rare, so I'd expect good resale value, and the price is right in this current "climate".

- A8 vs A10: I wouldn't be deterred by the naysayers, there is a known good fix for A8 issues, and it's a fine transmission, especially when tuned
- MRC and nav: to make sure, you need the window sticker from the original owner, or check the service ID label in the trunk, it's in the middle under the floorboard
- Cosmetic issues: I'd try to negotiate based on these, not sure how bad that curb rash is, but it's typically fixable at $50-150 per wheel, and a few rock chips are both inevitable and fixable (again, we haven't seen them, so it's impossible to tell how bad they are)

I’m a huge fan of the interior. That said the price is high.... esp for curb rashed wheels.. etc.

Hate to say it, but the price is in line for the current world we live in. Out of curiosity, I ran our Hot Wheels car through Vroom and they are offering 47K for mine. I have less miles, but the price is definitely there. It is an awesome car! We love it and it really is a unique car that they did not make many of (1861). Be sure to join the Hot Wheels Owner page if you get it!

Now is the time to sell, not buy. The market is insanely inflated right now and it would be a terrible investment for you to purchase that car anywhere near that price. Wait a year or two when things settle down or buy new

It's a Hot Wheels Edition, which was several thousand extra to begin with.
