Cool The Reaction of an LT Owner Driving an SS

Lmfao ok so ending today I've worked at this dealers auction in a town close by to me and had the privilege of actually driving a 2009 SS.

Now I've driven one before, on a test drive, but couldn't really get a feel for it because the salesman was being a dick since I'm young, but whatever.

I made up for it today :p

Was happier driving this then the Ford F350, Mustang GT, and all of the Buicks and BMW's combined, not because It's a better car, but because I've been dying to rip it across the parking lot :p

Edit: and here's some other pics from my job

It just has soo much more feel to it, and a lot more low end punch, it's beautiful

I can't wait to do my suspension and everything, if I can get it to handle like that I wouldn't leave my car. I'm only keeping my Auto LT until I move out in a couple years so I'm setting some cash aside so I can trade up to a 2010 SS and switch over my upgrades to make the most out of them

The full time job I start on Thursday is assembling Police Dodge Chargers and other Police/Security cars so I'm pretty pumped for that to :p

My speakers, future amp, future sub, future head unit, future painted interior, short antenna, possibly future FE5 struts and shocks depending on condition of the two and if I decide to only switch them after the SS ones need replacement, future lowering springs, my new battery, future weather tech digi fit mats...

.. and yea thats all I can think of right now :p I figure if I'm going to do this sooner than I thought I may avoid performance upgrades I cant take with me, but I might get something to enjoy if I get the urge but I'd want to dyno tune my car if I got a CAI and stage 2 exhaust so maybe :p

I would save the performance upgrade money for the SS. Just my opinion, and I'd also go with the 09 SS.. The RPD's don't really like to work to accurately after being tuned. Just my $.02

Ahaha that is why I feel like that would be a better idea, honestly I'll probably just end up painting the latter half of my exhaust black with a high thermal paint and leave it at that.

Would tail/head lights switch between a coupe 09 lt and ss?

Ok cool I'll definitely look into them when I trade up, but just curious, what does RPD stand for?

Yes, the healights would be a direct swap. And the tails would be a swap too if it was from 2dr to 2dr, or 4dr to 4dr (as they did make 4dr ss turbos )

RPD stands for Remote Performance Display. All 2010 SS's came with them. It is the 4in LCD square gauge that gives a lot of information regarding your performance of the SS. They are a great design and work great, until you tune your car. Then they start getting errors. A little tweaking from GM on them and they would be SUPERB! If your car has one, don't try to swap it to a regular round gauge, or the other way around. The entire dash wiring harness (which is $485 btw) is completely different from the ones that have the RPD and the ones that don't.

Ohh that's dope! Well I'll still look into both years and take that into account, at that point I'm more interested in finding the best condition/lowest km white SS I can find

gotcha, that's understandable. the 09 will probably have more Km's, but will be cheaper. So I guess it's a toss up on what is more imporatant to you. Km's or Price.
