Default Saw two C7's today

On Long Island NY. Saw a white C7 on Northern Blvd., very unimpressed. Saw a black one later on Glen Cove Road, looked a lot better but I still need to be convinced to give up my all black C6.

I don't know whether you are knocking the color white or knocking the C7 but I don't think this will end well.

So you came into the C7 forum to tell us all you are not impressed with the C7 and will be keeping your C6? And we should care...because?

Different strokes for different folks I guess ...
I've seen a few White C7's and was Surprised how nice they look compared to a White C6.
I wouldn't have considered getting a White C6, but White is one of the colors on my list I'll be considering for a C7 when the time comes

Have one of each, so, no dog in this fight! You probably nailed it early.

Did you mean your wife had to have it? It's a automatic with a scrunchie around the shifter!

Saw a White / Black roof / Black Wheels and interior and loved it!

Even I don't leave scrunchies on the shifter.

I am still trying to program the home link on this one, too!

Everyone has their likes and dislikes. I have a C6 but really love the look of the C7 so will be moving in that direction when the color I want is released. Not sure if you are looking for C7 owners to convince you to go in that direction or not but I can say without a doubt that you will not be convincing C7 owners to go back to their C6s.

I like my c6 but just looking at, especially pictures of a c6 parked next to a c7, the c6 just looks too plain. The c7 is almost exotic looking. Which is why I'm anxiously awaiting the color of the new Daytona SUNRISE metallic orange for 2015 because I like my dsom but its not bright enough for me. If the sunrise is brighter and closer to atomic orange, order done.

White is awful so I decided to buy one to remind C6 owners how good they have it...

690!

Yeah, I'm totally not impressed either. Neither are all the strangers that take pictures of it all day long.

Keep your C6 - plenty of people in line to pick up C7.

That got installed at the end of our first drive with the top down. It was installed on the e-brake handle in our C6, but since there isn't one of those in the C7 it's installed on the shifter. Causes me no heartburn at all being there.

Edit: Since so many people have noticed and commented on the scrunchie it has been relocated inside the console so as not to offend anyone.

Lot of hate on the scrunchie lol.

My first C7 choice was white, but I couldnt find one local I wanted, went with silver instead. While I'm not a huge fan of silver it looks pretty good on a C7 IMO.
