    Better off going aftermarket forged than those "snowflake" wheels.

    They look good in the brochure, but in the wild and in real light and viewed from an angle, they look anemic.

    Funny, felt the same as y’all. Thought those trident wheels were okay on the configurator- real life pics, uh, no.

    Got the base wheels- not terrible. Will look to get some aftermarket forged for track duty.

    Looks like The Mayor is correct. If you watch Chevy's animation of the convertible in their announcement of its reveal date, you can see the coupe change into the convertible in a profile drawing. The convertible does appear to have a lower roof line and a more stretched-out look. I like it!

    I have to say that Tadge is (IMO) the perfect guy for this job. He very clearly understands the customer, he is engaging and not afraid to be funny (or ironic) in the answer to the chrome wheel question (!).

    That might be because on vette forum we gave him an earful during the time the mid-engine C8 was a dream but claimed to be reality. Vette fans have been disapointed before. He was told things like "don't make fake BMW engine noise through the car speakers!"

    At least he got away from those pesky torque converters on the C8 versions. :D

    Huh? The C8 is a reality. And when did Tadge claim this "dream"? Hell, NO ONE at GM even acknowledged the C8 's existence until 8 months ago....
    And the engine note plumbed into the C8 cabin is NOT the synthesized BMW note, it's the actual engine...

    I snagged an allocation for one a few months back and should be getting it by the end of the first quarter 2020. Next weekend at the corvette funfest in Effingham IL the GM 2020 corvette tour will be showing off the cars and other items. Its only a couple hours from me so I guess I should go see one in person since I ordered one! Here are some shots of the spec I have coming.
