Sure.... just position your cursor in the reply text box where you want the picture to appear, click on the yellowish icon box above the text with mountain/sun, it will ask you where to find your photo(s) ...e.g. "Browse your device" and a dialog box will open to allow you to specify location.

Upload it/them and it will "clock" % while it is loading them.... then select "insert"..... you can, of course re-order multiple pictures or preview your post or just submit the reply.

Hope that helps....LK

Great idea Doug. At times there are unique things about a drop top that folks need to know about. So, I'm in.......Oh yeah, if the top don't drop I just can't buy it.

Our '16 base 1LT with A8 on an older section of Route 66 between Tucumcari, NM, and Santa Rosa NM.

FIRST QUESTION for the Convertible Crowd:

I'm unclear about the Interior Alarm System. I once had my alarm go off and, upon running outside to see what was up, I found my Radar Detector had fallen from my windshield. So, I know the alarm goes off with the top up and the windows closed.

My question is: Does the alarm go off under any other conditions?

Such as...
1. The top down and the windows either up or down and someone sticks an arm inside?
2. Or, the top up with either of the windows down?

Thanks in advance for your enlightened replies!

The alarm is disabled with the top down, and no one , to this date has yet figured out a way to work around this (and keep the intrusion alarm active) unlike the coupe and a wall anchor.

In fact, I have yet to even hear where the sensor is that tells the car the top is down.

Wow! Love the fawn beige 62 and the green (forget the factory name) and Kalihari interior C7. Both beautiful roadsters.

Great idea
I have had 3 Stingray Z51 M7's. One 14 coupe and 2 Verts. Current is a 17 long beach red with spice red edition.
Will never own another coupe. The convertible is much easier to use and is much more fun to drive.

I'm interested too. There are so few convertibles compared to coupes.

I have noticed that so far, most of us Vert people like Chrome Wheels. Like that bling.

I don't know what qualifies as "enough interest" to keep this convertible sub-section active, but in my mind it's valuable even if there are only a few posts a week. I am still shopping for a used C7 convertible, and I have a lot to learn. I know that in the future there will be plenty of other potential buyers just like me, and it will be very helpful for them to come directly to this section to find answers to their questions.

The photos that have already been posted are helping me to get ideas for my ideal C7 convertible. Keep 'em coming! I am focused on finding the right Premiere Edition, but my mind could be changed very easily.

I Like this. On my second C7 Convertible. First was a 2015 Z51 and now 2017 GS. I still don't think I know as much as I should about how things work. and would love to hear more technical stuff.

Still considering joining you with a Admiral blue GS, two tone seats, without the GS stripe, and not sure M7/A8.
Also waiting to see what happens between now and January.
