I'm still trying to decide whether to sell my 2011 BMW 335is convertible and go for the 2016 SS. It's a tough decision because I love the Bimmer but am looking at the end of the extended service contract and warranty. I also feel like I need a more practical car with a real back seat but I will really miss the top-down driving starting this time of year. I'm also going to miss participating in the CT BMW club. It's a great club with a lot of activities. :frown

Are there any other MA owners? I saw the the thread for CT owners. I am in Springfield, in western MA so not far from CT and go down there quite often. I looked at and drove SS's in Waterbury and Terryville.

It appears that most contributors in this Northeast region are in NY.

Cool, Greg8. Glad to know there's someone else up here. I'll check out the map. I was trying to find it but didn't see it on the drop-down menus.

Got my 2016 2SS 6M Nightfall Gray about a week and a half ago. We live in Westhampton, but the car beds down nightly inside our shop in Hadley(across from Quarters, right on the bike path) Our driveway at home would kill it and the shop has enough cameras that I can look at it anytime I want. We actually bought from Central in West Springfield, salesman was awesome, found us rebates we didn't even know about. Ending up knocking the price down quite a bit. He was even cool on the test drive when I "accidently" hit 125 on 91.

Well, welcome to the Chevy SS Sedan forum Com69!
Glad you are here, but you may get more relevant info on the Camaro forums.

Welcome! You need 4 doors to hang around these parts though. :devil

I'm in Cambridge now but am from Deerfield so I get out there a lot. Also saw my first SS in the wild since I've owned mine today - Heron White parked in a little lot near the exit 33 rotary off 93. Had my eyes peeled for one for the past three months!

I'm glad to see there are more SS's in the MA-RI-CT area. It would be great to plan a get together some weekend.

I'm working in the South Boston area around Braintree this week and was in Rockland and Dorchester last week. You may see me around in my blue 16.

Tomorrow, I'll be driving around down in the Providence area, then home to Springfield.

I'll be watching for you guys.

Looks like the map hasn't been updated for a while. I think I sent a request to be added after buying my SS almost a month ago.

Just drove my SSB M6 back from Illinois. Live in Newton , MA. So it looks like there are now a grand total of two SSBs in MA.......

Most likely me, hehe. There is another Mystic Green around, and I think it's my 2014 that I traded for my 2015. I do know the 2014 was sold locally. I do go down to Winchester from time to time, and that date, being a Saturday, was probably me.

I've only seen two in the wild in 3 years, what I believe is my previous one, and one other.

I live in Quincy. I have 2017 PBM A6, roof and spare. I have seen a 14 PBM around a couple of times.
Btw stay away from Quirk Chevy for service. A long story but they damaged my drivers door panel & mirror and rear valance. They are going to replace them but 500 miles on the car and already having parts replaced doesn't sit well with me. A car is only original once.

Hi,

I'm in Saugus, Ma., have a 2015 Black, SR, Spare, AT. Just bought it two months ago ,CPO . Traded in a 2014 BMW, 328 XI, couldn't be happier.

Bimmer was ok, but definitely over-rated. Trying to decide now what to do in regards to tires and wheels for the winter. Good luck with your decision.

Glad to see some new members/owners in the Massachusetts area. It would be great to get together and get acquainted some weekend. I met with a few Connecticut owners last fall but nothing has been organized this year yet that I know of. I don't know that I am the best for organizing as I travel quite a bit for my job but if we could come up with a date that everyone could make, then we could pick a place that is kind of central and that would be a start.

Our somewhat nice weather won't last for too long. I saw Halloween and fall decorations in the stores at Holyoke mall yesterday and it's barely August.

Hey Vernon. We are close as I live in Chicopee. I hate seeing the decorations out as I just bought this car so I know weather is changing soon. Too soon for me.

A meet up would be cool.

Mystic Green M6 on Newbury St, Boston Sat 8/19

So a friend of mine knows of my SS obsession. He happens to be downtown in Boston on Sat and sees a sharp sedan he likes, and takes a couple pics of it and texts me asking what the **** it is. Of course, it's a Holden badged Chevy SS in Mystic Green (with a manual). Sweet ride, great color, jealous!! I have to wait 'til October for mine, may be looking at used I guess by then. Is this your car? (attached pics).
