So is that you sitting in it? How were the seats?

Was that a non-carbon fiber dash?

Whats with the black stripe behind the hood vent?

I have never seen a black stripe running up the hood like that. Is that just light playing tricks? Does anyone know anything about that hood stripe?

What is with the area from the hood vent to the windshield being painted black - anybody seen that before?

Yes, that's me. Seats felt good, even adjusted it for my size.

I guess it was not carbon

Don't know

Thanks for posting. Looks like a Z L1 package with chrome wheels. A little surprised there weren't more people hanging around it.

The hood stripe is the stinger stripe that was mentioned as being an option.

Wow. Much better than previous stripes. I totally disliked them. Now I would at least consider.

Compare the C6 hood side edges and front fenders under hood area against those of the C7. What do you think is the significance in what we see and any design improvements gained? I don't think I have ever seen any thing like this. Interesting.

Yes.

But one of us says it is an option. I would appreciate knowing the number on the order form.

Thanks
