Get the convertible if you like that version better, and worry about what to take on a trip later. For longer trips (over 7 days) we pack so that we can put the top down until we get to where we are...

I guess if you're a gambler then non run flats are ok for you. But on a Corvette they just don't pencil out for me. The car is very low to the ground and would be difficult to properly jack up in...

Both my cars, one of which is a C7, have run flats. But I still have an air compressor in both cars. And I've had a couple of times where the tire has gotten a nail or screw in it causing slow air...

Everybody has made some valid points. You should inspect the car carefully before buying, and you should insist on big discount. One year sitting out may not be as bad as two years sitting out, but...

You should be able to find a good tire shop that will plug the tire, unless near the edge. Plug, drive it as it is until tire is worn out then buy a new set of tires and have real alignment shop do a...

Run flat tires have improved immensely over time, and I believe are the far better choice for your Corvette. Perhaps I'm in the minority but I even like the OEM tires a lot.

Not off to a great start with 'this new to you' Corvette! Hope warranty covers the issue. Have them check that "rough idle" while the car's there. Hope it works out for ya.

It's hard to tell how rough it's idling from where I'm sitting, but perhaps you could go to a cars & coffee or Corvette club and see what someone who owns what says about your car's idle. I see no...

My take is there are plenty of excellent used C7's available that don't have a 'story' that comes with them. And it just doesn't make sense to buy a C7 with early engine problems when you can buy one...

I'm sure glad I bought my C7 convertible when I did. And I really hope GM comes with the C8 convertible soon. So when I'm too old to shift my stick shift C7 I can move to the dual clutch auto C8...

It's a technique. A good majority of folks will make a bad assumption and figure they're good to go when the officer exits the road. And speed up accordingly. And if the person who makes that bad...

I wouldn't put Jake on my Stingray convertible, but I think it looks sweet on that yellow Corvette race car. All the typical racing ads all over the car minimize the Jake logo on the hood. And when I...

I'd suggest you start with a base Stingray. 450 H.P. is a lot of power for a street car. And you'll save big $$ on your car insurance as well as spending less for the car. Good luck with your choice

Rev match does not lower the rpm's on upshift, but will keep the rpm's elevated on a slow upshift. It never comes into play for me on upshifts. I have Corsa exhaust so on downshifts the rev match...
