Default Bought my first Corvette today!

Good evening Corvette Forum,

I am pleased to announce that this afternoon I purchased my first Corvette! As you can see by the pictures below it is a 2014 Stingray Premiere Edition, number 344 of 500. Earlier this year, I was thinking about putting in an order for a 2016 3LT Z51 Coupe in Laguna Blue Tintcoat and the full Brownstone Napa Leather interior. This car has everything I wanted except the suede inserts on the seats. I'm planning on getting a new Grand Sport in the near future, however if I'm financially stable when that time comes I will be keeping this car for a long time. The carbon fiber roof is amazing as well, although I will be ordering the glass roof from Chevy within the week. As of now, I couldn't be happier with my decision.

From the 60 or so miles I drove today I can conclude that the 7 speed manual transmission is amazing, and the auto rev match feature is great when I want to hear the perfect downshift as I'm casually driving on the highway. The clutch is perfect for me and the throw is almost spot on for my preference.

Yes the photos were taken on my lawn, it might be weird to some but the lighting in my driveway wasn't great this afternoon.
