I'd like to see them too but I'm sure everyone is going to start their own thread as soon as they get their cars!

I have the magnetic shocks and drove it in touring mode 25% of trip and in sport mode most. I like the sport mode best, car was smooth, not harsh and drove like it was on rails. In touring it felt like my 08 vette, nice ride but after being in sport it felt a bit loose.
I was surprised how quiet the cabin is at speed and no drone from npp's.
I played with all the settings and it does take time to find all thats available.
I did notice that the mirror is absolutely rock solid, no vibrations even at high speeds 80 plus.
The Nav is the best i've seen, I set it wide to see 100 miles ahead and when it came time to exit the screen zoomed in on its own and then returned to my setting.
Its a great touring car, thats what my use will be since I'm to old to track it. I will bring it to my other home in NYC on sunday and see how it handles that environment LOL

Great insights George. Some of the things I wanted to know....Did you have a passenger? How was it from their point of view? I am worried my wife will think the passenger side is too cramped.

Congrats, it sounds like you got the car you wanted....always a great day when that happens. Especially since you were probably as worried as cat in a room full of rocking chairs whether you made the right choice. Good for you!

I had no passenger. The tunnel seems wider near the knee area, not by much, so you legs will not spread out as much as the C6. I sat in the passenger seat,same feeling.
The seats are great, getting in and out felt easier than my C6. I did not feel as low to the ground.
The view out the front is great and the rear was good , the small quarter windows are helpful. My C6 was a vert so this was a lot better.
