The only thing I'm not a huge fan of is the chrome wheels.

I don't care chrome or not on an American
Suits the overall stand of the car well...
Unlike chrome on a German

Guys, I know you're not a fan of the chrome wheels, but they really set the car off! Plus, my wife loves them.

If you read my thread in the 3G TL Photo Section, you'll know the ups and downs I've gone through to be where I am today with this car. I'm really happy with it all.


LOVE low-end torque! It's a joy and pleasure to drive. I'll say just as good as any Porsche....maybe better.

I'm a little late to the game but congrats!!! Add another V8 to the board! I absolutely love the new 'Vette design. I've still yet to see the interior in person, so please take more for us to drool over. Oh and this photo...

Steven, Congrats again man. You're going to be a "Vette Guy" for life, i know it and know all about it.

Oh, and if you think the C7 sounds good now, you need these in your the near future....

http://www.southerncarparts.com/corv...2l-p-5795.html

And yes, this is not a TL anymore. The mods are endless for Vette's (and a bit more costly)....just depends how deep your pocket is (and before your wife kills you)

I've already been modding......

-Carbon Fiber License Plate Holder
-Stingray Door Sills (it comes with "Corvette" sills)
-Stingray Floor Mats
-Stingray Trunk Mat
-Stingray Hood Liner (on order)
-Carbon Fiber dash (ordered and should be in this week-the real stuff!)

It was also time of day, Steven, in the shade it's easier to get better shots. Get away from using the "auto" setting. Get some tips from Anil, he seems to have a good grasp on what to do.

I will stand by my original thought, after helping Brian (Nexson) with some lowering springs for his Lexus GS350 even though he has an OEM "edfc" type of deal where you can adjust how the car rides via adjustable rebound...I'm confident that you could do springs. Get it to sit about 2 inches lower and it'd be perfect. Just MY preference, obviously.

That video of you driving it...wow, the exhaust sound is amazing.

Same here... but I saw one in person yesterday (finally) and OMG... just pure sex. Those who have seen my automotive ramblings know I was seriously considering a C6 with a widebody... but after seeing this... I think a C7 may be on the list in a couple of years. I mean wow.
