New warranty and a lift

I decided it was time for a "lift" (or at least a higher seating position to get into and out of). So, I used the warranty running out on the BMW to "up"-grade my seating position.

The New Arrival and The Dearly Departing :

2017 Camaro 2SS 50th Anniversary Edition w/ pretty much everything. Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo Brakes, Bose, Nav, Dual Mode Exhaust, etc, etc, etc... I'm liking it so far, but she's a bit beast compared to the Z4. I'm going to have to make a little more room in the garage.

I've already figured out my first mod for it. Blacking out that bowtie.

Or maybe seeing if I can get a "hollowed-out" bowtie like I think they had on the ZL1 or Z/28.

For some reason, I've always liked that gold colored .

With the blacked-out SS down below, the gold bowtie bugs me a little.

Then black it out so they match.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. I just saw the effort you have to go through to REPLACE the bowtie and I think some type of wrap should be sufficient.

Auto. I wanted a stick. But, it's a lightly used (7k miles) CPO. I've been looking for a stick equipped the way I want, off & on, for months with no luck. So, I went with this one, which is pretty much how I would've ordered one. (Although, *I* probably wouldn't have spent the $$ on the Brembos. I was glad to let someone else take the depreciation hit and get some things *I* may not have ordered. )
