If you were thinking of buying an SS — which I heartily recommend if you can swing it — do buy a new one.

Not really worth it to buy a used one. Not if you can bargain at all.

I paid not that much more than that, and got the full manufacturer warranty and two free oil changes and services, too (for a car like the SS is a $200-$250 value or so).

Even the olders SSes are pretty dear.

I expect it’ll actually rise in value (as the GTO did) after people realize what they missed.

I also figured out why a few people have asked me at gas stations and such, “Is that a BMW?”



I like how BMWs look just fine, but won’t pay the extra 50% for the nameplate, so that works for me!
