Thanks Mohit. Yes this is R/T AWD. Has a 5.7L V8 and a few goodies like keyless entry, remote start, navigation etc. I am yet to fully explore the car though. Will try to put up a review soon.

Now that's beauty. A powerful beauty I must say. Congrats Amitoj . I've stayed in Nashua for about 3 months some 5 years back. It's a nice little town.

I'm keeping a close watch on this thread as I'll be landing in US of A on 26th of July. Will be in market for either a new or used sedan. Haven't made up my mind yet, but leaning towards buying a new one.

That makes it pretty well loaded! So how much did you end up shelling out for this considering the availability was scarce? And maybe its time you upgraded your TBHP garage too

Congratulations on your new acquisition. It sure looks like a beast and with that potent v8 beneath you must be grinning from ear to ear.

Awaiting your review for the same.

I am not yet at that point. Need to fix a couple of things on my current ride to make it ready to sell. I'm thinking of the V6 auto with base wheels. For me its more of a GT so I want the best possible ride quality.

Since this will be my 4th GM vehicle, I get owner loyalty and other discounts. Let me know if you decide on the Camaro and I can give you some tips.

Congrats on a new pre-owned ride. Sure will put a smile on the face when required with the potent v6. Any suspension upgrades planned to make it handle better or is it out and out a family vehicle?
