    my first hands on look at a C7...thx Cybervette!

    No pics - we've seen enuf here..

    Today I got together with Keith (Cybervette) here on the forum. His has a 3LT Cyber gray Kalahari car. The color combination meshes well. He was kind enough to meet me at a parking lot in Parkland, Fl and show me the car. I didn't drive it, but that's ok, I did not care how it drove, I took his word that it drove well. My main concerns were pretty much some of the things we talked about here, so let me give you my observations.

    NPP Exhaust -, This works very well - the open position is loud enuf on acceleration when he left and burbles nice at idle. What was surprising was how quiet the closed position is. Very cool. Glad I got it.

    Do I fit? The answer is yes,I'm 6'1" 235 pounds built normally, but could stand to lose 1-15 lbs, but certainly not a full back from the NFL. I fit perfectly fine, both in my leg, and through the seat and the back. I felt was very comfortable fit with that with no problem whatsoever. Plenty of headroom, no problem.

    The stereo? Again fine for my iPod of 2500 tunes. I have had cars in the past that I put Amps and subs in, and everything else to get great sound, and this is perfectly acceptable. It had good bass. mids and highs. I am not making any changes in the system and once I get the car.

    The rear spoiler? People have commented here that if you get this, you have to reach over it to put things in the back. A bit, but it's workable as the floor is high in realtion to where you stand. I have a spoiler ordered to install on my non z51 car. I think it adds to the look and the fit and finish of Keith's spoiler was fine with the same gap on each side.

    The paint: Good enuf with a mild correction/polish. Being an amateur detailer, I was very concerned about how much orange peel was there, not much at all, nice gloss. This car was detailed nicely on delivery by the dealer.

    The badges: the chrome rear and stingrays look out of place to me on a cyber Grey car, IMO. I think I'll probably put "Stingray" across the back in black and look for black chrome stingrays on the side. RPI and emblempros are working on both.

    Overall: after a critical look at the interior of the 3LT I was very impressed. The carbon fiber to me on the dash has enough luster to it that I'll leave it alone. It's not really a matte finish, more satin. The stitching looks very nice and the leather gives off a great smell. I did not see anything I didn't like, except the wheel gap. It's a z51 and there still was a considerable amt.. It will be interesting to see how it looks when you lower the bolts.

    Please let me know where I can get the black stingray emblems for the sides. My car will be yellow and black with black wheels and yellow calipers and I would prefer to have black chrome stingrays on the sides as well....

    Thanks in advance!

    You are so welcome. It was great meeting you today and I'm glad you were able to see my car in detail,,,. Also thanks for the detailing info. I'm going to get that blackfire sealant. I've read the reviews and everyone loves that stuff.
    Will see you soon.

    Keith
