2017 Camaro SS 1LE Krypton Green
This is the first new Chevrolet I've purchased. So far I'm enjoying my ownership. As of the time of writing this, I've taken the car out for an Autocross event and for a little bit of Canyon Carving. The car is a blast and I couldn't feel better about the purchase.
ISSUE: The only issue I've had so far is related to the clicking noise under heavy lateral acceleration. I've read in multiple places that its fairly common and isn't of concern. It's part of the characteristics of Floating Rotors. I've had this looked at at the dealership and they informed me of the "Cleaning Process" that they do to make it go away, but they expect it to come back in a matter of months or weeks. Unfortunately for me, I believe they cracked my front lip when they had it. I've never hit anything in this car. Picture of the damage is at the bottom of the page.
Videos: I've tried to make a few videos that I thought would be helpful to the community. Feel free to check them out below.

Below are a few pictures during my ownership so far. (Mostly in order)
Future plans for the car are mostly focused on performance gains. There may be a few aesthetic upgrades once time and funding permits, but they aren't a high priority for me at this point. In doing the research for the items I want to put on MY car, I decided to make an Upgrades Guide that will help new owners understand what their options are and what pros and cons are associated with each item.
My main big ticket items to research:
1. Cold Air Intake system
2. Cam for Forced Induction
5. Where to get it tuned
Stay tuned in for updates on this as things progress.
