While adaptive cruise is nice, I don't really care about it on a Vette. BSM and rear cross traffic alert though is pretty much a requirement at this point for a car at this level.

"Front Lift" looks to be separate from MSRC, and from what it looks like is included on the base car.


And yes, it's 1000 location memory.

The funny thing is that in the C7 there is no rollover support in the coupe, it's all in the windshield since the coupe/vert were designed together, yet tracks are fine allowing coupes run.

Wow! I'm really liking the wing over the Z51 spoiler. And the white with stripes and black wheels looks really good.

If you look carefully at Chevy site, MSRC is only an option on the Z51, as it was on the C7 originally. So no MSRC for base car (at least for first year). I'm hoping Z51 2LT with MSRC can be had...

I think the bolded items are more table stakes in today's market. Not arguing that 2LT pricing may go up a little over the C7 package, but I don't expect it to be a huge jump. What I saw on the...

Any of the ones you mentioned will be a great daily driver. Having had both C6 & C7, I would say either a 2012-2013 Grand Sport or a base C7 (no Z51). The C6 GS will be a little less expensive and...

DCT, but yes, essentially an "auto". It's certainly making it hard for me, as I love and enjoy driving a manual. I've been planning on a C8, but just not sure I can give up the manual. I'll still...

Yeah, that makes more sense, plus would utilize same A2W style they've been using since LS9.

Anybody else notice on the picture that the intercoolers are BEFORE the turbos? Pretty sure that won't work very well, I'm betting that a fake pic.

For consistent (all the time use), yes. Sure, I would switch over to it for driving twisties, but it was too harsh to run everyday. Maybe it's just the roads where I live (which are pretty good...

I usually replace mine when they get to the wear bar at any part of the tire. Fronts wear the inner side faster, so you may have 4-5/32nds on the outside, but 2/32nds (wear bar) on the inside. ...

Other thing to throw in is age of tires. You should really replace tires every 5 years anyway, and if you don't drive it often you might end up just doing all 4 at once. If it's a daily/frequent...
