Would've been interesting to see TBN & TAN.

Congrats on the 2018 Corvette? Which model/spec did you order?

I ordered a Torch Red 1LT coupe, grey interior, A8 transmission, black Z51 wheels, red calipers, Z51 spoiler, battery protection and carbon flash badges. It's going to be a long wait, the Bowling Green plant is shutdown for renovations so production won't start again until November and I'm sure mine probably won't get built until December or January. But I can't drive it much through the winter months anyhow, as long as I have it in time for spring I'm happy.

Congrats. C7 is the best looking and performing Vette ever, and maybe forever if something isn't done about stupid EPA Regs.

Congrats on the new 'Vette, sounds very nice!

Buddy has an 07 6-speed, it is a nice, fast car!

I know it is a moot point, but the lead number would worry me - it's high for this engine and interval.

Lead has been high on every one of my UOAs with this car, but hasn't gotten much worse since the first one. It would have been interesting to see how it manifested itself in the future.

Great that you're getting a C7.

You didn't want a Grand Sport?
For the money I think they are the best value for the money.

The Grand Sport is a great value but I prefer the clean simple look of the base model, I'm not a fan of the rear spoilers on the Z/GS models, or the black plastic in the front wheel wells.
