So finally after searching for the right combination and color for a month now, i found it 300 miles from were i live. Yesterday me and my girlfriend took a drive out to bring her home. And let me tell you it was a great drive home. Although it was intense , we have never been to Pittsburgh before and of course we listened to google which took us thru the city and tunnel to get us on the highway. Nothing like trying to drive a brand new vette thru city streets you never been on.

This is my very first Vette , and i been waiting for them to release the next gen stingray.

I didn't get the Z51 package but she does have 3LT which was a must. To many mods i plan on doing to spend money on stuff i won't use.

We had to stop and take some shots



This is one with my other beauty that we drove down with.




And after the drive home this is what i saw on the dash. you would never believe there was a huge V8 under there.

skyrunner, welcome aboard and congrats on your new Vette. I've averaged around 31.2mpg to 34.6mpg, and I'm sure it will only get better with time and my right foot.

With many vehicles, fuel economy measurably improves after the break-in period.

"A vehicle that is properly maintained will retain its efficiency for many years. The EPA tests vehicles with about 5,000 miles on the odometer to account for the break-in period since a vehicle's fuel economy will typically continue to improve over the first several years of ownership. Vehicles that are 10 or even 15 years old will experience little decrease in fuel economy if properly maintained." Top 10 Misconceptions about Fuel Economy

Your car sure does look sweet. ;)

I picked up my triple black Z-51 today and put a little over 500 miles on her. My 16 year old son is 6'-2" and it was a snug fit in the passenger compartment. He told me if the car wasn't so cool he'd be upset about the situation! I replied that I was quite comfortable! autocompress1398441541160.jpg

I am glad to see we are having more people on the forum that are getting the cyber grey, i think its the best color plus you won't be able to get it next year and all the other colors will still be available so that might make our color more sought after in the future plus its the first year of the stingray so that means we have to good things going for us the have the cyber grey ; its a vette but also has a nice elegant look to it in my opinion. Hope everyone is enjoing there new stingrays i think we all waited to a good year to make our purchases.

Guys please create your own individual thread for your car. Also give your thoughts and /or impressions of your new ride and then revisit that thread with additional thoughts comments as you pile on the miles. FYI: You can create a signature line that can indicate what features / options you car has as well as a place in your profile to indicate mileage. This is helpful in case you have a question about your car and will save having to ask & answer that question before we can offer up helpful suggestions. By the way, congrats to all of the new owners above!
