I talked to the dealer today and he said that if i ordered my SS s/c today i could get it by april. Thats the good news, bad news is that i asked him about the performance package which includes the LSD and he had no clue. He said if it was offered it would be next years model. I really wanna the perf pack but in Canada everything gets even more delayed on the already extremely delay arrival of the SS s/c

Should I wait or just get the one without????

If I don't get the LSD can anyone tell my the largest difference there would be when comparing a SS s/c with LSD and a SS s/c without

WAIT FOR THE LSD!!!

I have a Red Line and am going to spend nearly 2g's to get one. There is a major traction problem which means lots of low end torque.

Yeah, there's a big difference between the 03 SRT's without LSD and the 04, 05 with. If you plan on racing the SS in any way, shape or form, hold-off. The difference is one tire spinning compared to two.

I'm sure its something you could always add though.. probably alot more money.. I've been debating the same thing... and then you gotta wonder if the SS doesn't come out till a couple more months.. when will the 06 be out? by the end of the year or this time next yeart?

The LSD is what I've waiting for all these months. So I went to a big dealer on Feb. 18 and the sales guy (who called the inventory ordering guy) told me he couldn't even place an order for me until April. Then I might have it by June. That stinks!

If you think about it, a LSD installed (im talking qualife on a getrag tranny) is about 1,500 + or - depending. The package is what 1,600 right?? and you get a couple of extra goodies to boot. Only pain in the ass is waiting. Man i hate waiting.

It's not the Getrag... it's the same tranny from the Saab 9-3, whatever the name of it is. I just talked to Saturn about what the hell it was, and how much to get the LSD installed, etc, etc. The didn't have much info on prices, but he did tell me that they would install it. I'd wait if you can, or get the Ion now with the LSD. If you want the Cobalt though, I'd wait for the LSD or just plan on dropping some cash to put it in later. Particuarly if you want to smoke people at stoplights, without the LSD it's hard. I can spin all the way through 1st, and second if its cold out, even when I'm being careful. The Cobalt's slightly larger tires might help a LITTLE, but I imagine it will still be the same low-end torque monster that the Redline is.

I just told the Deaership that I could care less about the Recaro seats. But I need the LSD on my Cobalt SS and that they will put it on before I recive it and it will be added to my loan.

But I still might wait to get it with the LSD from the factory because I don't think that I will be able to get the Cobalt SS anyways before the show season anyways so I might as well wait.

3 more months on my cavalier to be paid off

I'd like to know too as far as the price and all that goes with the LSD package. On a side note i'd also like to know if there's anyone out there that knows a thing or 2 about financing that would be able to tell me how much one of the SS supercharged would be per month with a $4k down payment over say a period of 72 months.

I've talked to one and the response was basically, "huh?" I'm from Edmonton, Alberta.
I've also talked to a dealership here in Calgary, Alberta and I seem to know more than they do. The rep I talked to doesn't even have allocation for an SS S/C yet so...

I also sent an information request to GM Canada and they haven't even answered back yet. I'm guessing what my dealer said about Canadian dealerships being the last to know, was true :(

I'm just waiting patiently so that I can order my Black SS S/C with Sunroof, OnStar, Side-Curtain Airbags and performance package (G85)... LSD and Recaro's. :D

I think the package used to be under G85, but now it's called the W2E Recaro package or something. Just ask your dealer if he knows anything about the W2E package.

its good to hear the performace package will be available. Gotta have the LSD.

Wonder if you can get the LSD but not the recaros. The inserts are looking tight.
