(This thread will take too long to load for some people if I add too many links in the post, so I'll put the most viewed ones here. You'll have plenty to choose from on the YouTube sidebar if you view any of these on the YouTube site anyway).

On the fence about picking up an SS? This video by Motor Trend should help make up your mind.
