Congratulations on the SS! Thoughts on your list:

!. Not me.
2. No.

3. Check with forum vendor Jon @bestwheeldeals.com as he can tell you what will depending on if you lower or not, and set you up with the correct offset based on that decision. If you lower and keep the magride make sure to have a ride height recalibration done on the magride, otherwise the system will "think" the vehicle is under load and it will probably ride like a grain truck.

4. From what I've seen on here, Holden badges are much like a CAI. Once that Pandora's box has been opened... You'll start with the grille and trunk no doubt. You'll need to hurry on that radio btw., the service is still available but we're not sure for how long.


All of that and then you get in and see a Chevy bowtie on the steering wheel? Start saving now. ;)
1. Ok, thanks
2. Darn
3. Thanks I'll contact Jon. Does the dealer have to do the recalibration?
4. I'll have to find out about the radio. Find out the turn-a-round for that service. Of course taking it apart might be longest part.

Yea, I know about the airbag but 600 can go for something else....we'll see...I might come around...haha

Joining the forum to learn more about the car. I've been wanting a M6 white 16\17 year for a long time. The time has finally come to make it a reality!

Own trucks my entire life, hence the username, and looking to get out of my "comfort" zone and I've admired these cars since the day they came out. The rarity, 6M, power and styling are all great.

Current driver is a 2003 Suburban 2500 with a 9.5L (577 cubic inch) motor and a 2.9L Whipple supercharger.

Welcome to Chevy SS Forum! Please tell us a bit about yourself, your driving history, cars you have owned and loved, and why you like/hate the Chevy SS.

We hope you enjoy your stay and welcome aboard our amazing community.

Your SSForums.com Staff
I'm an older semi-gearhead. I have owned a couple of 1st gen Mustangs (I know, I know...), a mid-2000's BMW (I know, I know...), 2006 GTO (6 sp) that my son totaled and am now on the verge of my final (I think) midlife crisis. Oh, who the heck am I kidding, my last old age gasp for some driving excitement! I don't own an SS yet but as soon as my sister-in-law and her kids move out with all of their stuff (next month, I hope) I'll have room in my garage for a big boy toy. What's it like as a daily driver? How are parts and service? I live in a Chicago suburb so there are plenty of Chevy dealers around. I think I want a 2016 or 2017 for the magnetic shocks. Any advice would be appreciated.

Welcome to the SS Forums @ClassicSS !!

The driving experience is without a doubt one of the best on the planet,,, AFAIAC!!! That said,,, I am definitely biased,,, so that is what it is!! Sure you can daily one if you have to, but the bulk of us here,,, have other daily drivers and these come out to play and get the groceries,,, cuz its so capable and roomy!!

PARTS,,, Well, the LS3 and The Tremec (I have an M6) as well as the 6L80E Autos are not too much hassle (Well the M6 is a unique construct for the SS's, not the same as say,, Camaros)!! Collision parts are another story as well as other left hand drive specific parts,,, they are getting very difficult if not now impossible to source in some instances!! Some of this is due to the supply chain disaster, and some is due to the brand now being extinct!! There are some resources for the common stuff down in Australia but not too much for the LHD SS's / G8's specifically!!

That said,,, resources like this forum are getting to be more important as the community support is pretty much all we have now!!! OH and DEALERS,,, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!! Not too many of them ever even knew these existed and many dealer techs are less than stellar too so a word of caution is in order there! Unless you have and know personally,,, like a service manager or have a long term relationship with a well regarded dealer,,, (RARE these days!!) then you would be advised to query this community for their suggestions!! There is a very active Holden/SS/GTO,,,, group in IL here and on FecesBook too (I dont partake of the social media cancer,, personally!!), soooo you will not be without helpful enthusiasts on that score!!

Dont let all that put you off,, since you already have at least some Holden experience (GTO!!), and must have a good idea of just how spectacular those Monaro's and Commodores are!! At this point your only other GM based alternative is a Cadillac CT5V Blackwing and those are gonna cost well in excess of double what our SS's are selling for these days!!

Good Luck with the Unicorn hunt!!

Hello everyone! Been checking the site out for a while. Both this baby about a couple of years ago, don't drive it near as much as I would like too but is a blast when I do. I have a couple of mods, headers, tune, VCM OTR. But looking to do a little more.
