My 2017 SS 1LE Finally showed up...

I ordered a 2017 Camaro 1SS 1LE about 2.5 months ago and it finally arrived on Wednesday... In 27 degree weather, rain/sleet... Fun.

Pics below are minimum because of the awful local weather but, at least I got to take a couple in my garage and in my gym's garage.

Specs/Options on the car itself when ordered...
-1LE package (obviously)
-Mosaic Black Metallic paint
-All weather mats
-Trunk mat
-Trunk cargo net (waste of money IMHO)

Overall first impressions...
Well it was below freezing so I barely drove the thing so far, but it's not lacking in sporty feel or power for sure. The layout/ergonomics are pretty decent. Only real complaint is the lack of a good place to put my phone once it's plugged into USB for Android Auto... Which I'll have a remedy for below.
More feed back to come when it warms up.

Overall goal of the car...
To be a comfy daily driver, while being track capable and still fun for the occasional highway/quarter-mile run

Currently on order...
-Simple Velcro Cargo pocket that'll go onto the carpet just below the center console/shifter area on the driver's side to store my phone (So I can keep my cupholders free) http://amzn.to/2gmlgRF
-Dark tail light tint strips for the rear reflectors, and front/rear side markers from Phastek
-OEM GM dark tail lights
-OEM GM Black knee pads
-OEM GM Black Bow ties for front/rear
-Window Tint appt for wed 12/14 (5%)

Planned Mods (broken down by area)...

Power
-Intake (unsure on brand yet)
-Ported TB/Intake Mani
-Flex Fuel Kit
-2in headers with catless x-pipe (retaining NPP)
-TSP VVT3 cam (with fuel lobe)
-Tune for 92 and E85
Above mods should put me in the 500-550whp ballpark on E85

-Supercharger (some day, maybe?) - when I want 650+ whp

-Eibach Springs (since they work well with the MRC and aren't overpriced)
-carbotech (or whatever the new brand that the carbotech guys started) pads - 2 sets, one for street and one for HPDE/Track
-stainless lines
-RBF600 Fluid

-1LE/ZL1/Z28 replicas (in 1LE sizes) with Pilot Sport Cup 2s (whenever the factory G3 tires are dead) for track days
-OEM wheels with slightly cheaper "Street" tires (again, when the G3s are dead)

-Whenever there's a wickerbill style add-on to the 1LE spoiler I liked, I'll buy it
-Might buy some side skirts eventually

-A rear seat delete eventually
-Harness bar+harnesses

Also a quick and dirty audio upgrade consisting of...
-A set of component speakers for the doors and a set for the rear area
-An Audio control LC2i
-Amp and wire kit (Will bridge the 2 rears to the "bass" channel and use them as the sub - keep the highs/mids going to the front speakers)

OK Pics of my car... Admittedly it was 27 degrees yesterday and sunny during the day but by the time I was able to get to the dealer the sun was going down and it was getting wet out... So my pics are weak - Only the wheel, window sticker, and from behind in my house's garage.
I managed to get one in my gym garage tho, which is probably the best...





These pics are from a guy on Camaro6 with the same car (I don't have the black bowtie badges, but they're on order - color/options/etc is the same)... Way better showing of Mosaic Black Metallic in sunlight...

50% tint on windshield (for heat and dash protection)
5% all other glass
Phastek tint strips for reflectors on rear bumper, and all side markers - crap camera phone pic at dusk makes it look like the rear 1/4 windows are darker than the doors but both are 5%

(not pictured) Black out 3rd brake light that says "CAMARO" on it.

Got my OEM GM Dark tail lights in the mail, waiting on the black badges. Will install those and remove the fender badges and then appearance mods are done until a 1LE wickerbill comes out.

Got the tail lights installed on 12/18 and took some pics after giving her a bath.
Was home in Philly over Xmas, just got back into town late last night... When I got home the OEM GM Black suede knee pads for the interior and the Black Bow Ties had arrived. Guess they'll go on this weekend

Car mods might be on hold for a bit after those items... I got engaged while home visiting, and we've gotta plan our wedding

Got the black badges on - Still got some badge work to do tho...

-Got a custom "1LE" badge on the way which I'll be putting in the spot that the stock "SS" badge is in on the rear. So it has the SS badge in front and 1LE out back
-Will be removing the Camaro fender badges as well

Only pick I got at a meet with some friends...
