Yes this is it! Post your pictures here, videos, describe your AW build and why you built it that way, comment reactions and thrill of driving your AW if you have it already , discuss AW accessories and your mod projects if any ( even the infamous wheel colors ).


For AW lovers only. s

I built a page to show off my car to distant friends and family, so I'll just put the link here rather than duplicating all my efforts and taking up thread space.

http://www.wsuccess.com/download/kenc7.html

I got the non-Z51 model with the exposed CF roof. I actually prefer the small spoiler, plus it has the advantage of automatically coming in black, which fits in with the other black trim pieces all over the car. I would have gone with the carbon flash mirrors, but that's too much money for just the mirrors. I think it would only make economic sense on a Z51.

I kept the interior black just to maintain the simple two-color theme throughout the entire vehicle. I've had differing opinions on the gray contrast stitching in the interior, but I think it looks very snazzy and I'm quite pleased.

I also like the fact that we get to be the only owners where the car display on the driver cluster and nav unit matches our actual body color! Just goes to show that Chevy knew this was the best color.

Maybe I should post my build here myself!!

Arctic white Z51 convertible
Black top
2LT Kalahari interior
Silver painted wheels
red calipers
MSRC
NPP
7 Speed
Personalized plate
Carbon fiber dash
Battery tender

My biggest issue was the interior color. Not wanting black on a vert I was on the fence for a while between red and Kalahari. Finally decided that the red was just too bright for my personal taste and that Kalahari gave it a more classy look, which is what I was looking for. My initial body color choice was Cyber gray but opted for white.

Car due in April 2014 only. So no pictures available for now. Actually very few vert AW pics out there, and no Z51 AW vert pics at all...

Still kept my red caliper to satisfy the little rebel left in me...

Wow! The AW C7's really pop more than any white Corvettes since the mid years. I think it just shows off the vents and exits really well. Good luck with your new ride!

Sweet tag! I saw you on the owner's map. White truly is the best color.

Picking up my AW/AR 2LT Z51 in about two hours.

Tint and a lowering how to to follow.

I am thinking my first mod may be powder coating the calipers white. My car is all white with black wheels and black calipers.

I was looking at a M400 before I decided on the vette. How do you like it? track days only?

I love the M400. I don't really track any of them, but I drive them as often as possible. I had a bad experience tracking a long time ago...road rash even with the clear bra, and everyone saying "Are you sure you want to track that, it's so nice?"

Mostly Cars and Coffee, a few back roads runs, and the occasional vacation trip.

The Vette has many of the same characteristics. It's going to be my daily driver for about 30k miles per year, so it has to be comfortable, reliable and under warranty.

The Noble is just a more raw experience, but not an everyday car. It's so light and responsive but docile and comfortable when my wife comes along. She sometimes forgets that we're in it until she sees someone with a camera phone.

I've never heard of the M400, just lovely to look at. Where did you get your C7?
Mine came from a small local dealer in Newark, De. It was a 2nd Consensus order.
They were great to deal with in every aspect, and they are 3.6 miles from my home.

Beautiful car, did you build it yourself? Roush tuned 4.0?

I have a BMW E92 in AW and just love how sleek it makes the car look. I'm liking the AW quite a bit on the C7....definitely in my top 3 choices.

It's lightly modified to 455hp. The whole car was done by 1G Racing in Ohio. Turnkey.

I'll have mine back tomorrow and I can take a few snaps. Anything in particular you're looking to see that hasn't been published?

White really shows the car well. The VY is sweet too, but maybe a little too eye-catching. Red....yes, beautiful! I was truly surprised at how great the silver looked on Doc's car.
