Being the first year of a new model, there are always problems that pop up, issues that happen, its just the nature of the beast - Kinks just have to be worked out. Instead of issues, I want to give people an opportunity to share what they love about the car, shout outs of praise.

I will start, and since I have about 2 weeks until mine arrives, I can only say "WOW - them lines are so sexy, no matter which way I look at it I am amazed at the beauty of it.

Had mine for about 5 weeks now, some 2500 miles, other than the cracked windshield issue (which was repaired without any issues), I'm satisfied that I may have gotten a trouble free one. Have had nothing go wrong to my knowledge, hope it stays that way. Best of luck with yours.

Got your DIC programmed for V4 vs V8? No issues with that now?

You know, I haven't looked at that either, only on long distant trips do I pay attention to the fuel consumption, but just been scootin' around most of the time, not paying any attention. :D

Tnx Norm. Get ready for the "hurricane" on Friday. Won't be driving the C7 for a while.
Nah, just gonna get a little rain. I'm actually looking forward to some rain, haven't had an opportunity to test 'er out on wet roads.

One of the quite pleasures I get is just after driving my C7, I get out, start to walk away, turn around and just look at how amazing Star looks. I smile to myself and can't believe it's mine. (Star is my C7's name)

I call mine the Blue Beauty/Beast. She is the first car I've owned that I named. She is just so gorgeous from every angle and such a beast when you step into it. The Laguna Blue just pops so well in the sunlight and the Brownstone interior is so elegant. I had a rear hatch seal that I got replaced, but it has been fine since and the rest of the car has been perfect. Granted the cup holder design is not the greatest, but I improvised on that and have it working well now as well, so I am very happy. She has about 1800 miles on her now, and I got 32mpg on a 1000 mile trip. She is the most awesome car I have owned in 40+ years of driving.

Don't have mine yet, soon, but here are a few things that really attracted me to the new 'Vette. First I love the fact it is a North American car that has finally caught the EU sports car aficionados eye and given the price and performance surpassed that group in my mind. I'm a NA car guy having grown up near Detroit/Windsor in the 70's, loved the muscle cars but hated the slights shown by the EU snobs, the automotive magazines were just as bad.

Then there is the look, it is like a very hot woman , hard to take your eyes off it, sexy, sultry and sounds so good when you pump the accelerator. No sexual connotation there ;) Had one go by me with the performance exhaust the other day, gear down for a corner, love that sound, nothing like a V8. I could go on and on...it's just a gorgeous, high performance machine !! My Crystal Red 'Vette if it were a woman would look a lot like this I expect ...
