    I would not order it anyway but a lot of Ferrari's have tan colored dashes and I've never heard it be a big problem.

    For me, I don't care for it but its not the reflection that would stop me. Black also reflects, just not as much.

    My biggest issue is I ordered the 3LT in the C7 and was completely disappointed in the leather quality and appearance. So, I need some convincing before spending the extra money

    What is the situation re sound ?

    Does it have the GPF which seems to be a killer.

    Over at the Vette forum there are still many dealers who have 2020 allocations and are selling at MSRP.

    We will know on 10-3-19

    Convertible numbers have generally been under 15% of Vette sales. IMO, Chevy wants to boost this number because its a much higher % on Ferrari and McLaren.

    Wonder at what speed the "airbrake" tears off? Hopefully there is an electrical over-ride to prevent this kind of stunt.

    So, they say it can go up while you drive up to 30 MPH -- but what if you're heading into a 20 MPH headwind?

    Crisswell in Maryland Mike Furman says he has allocation available. Ask for Mike Furman as he is a straightshooter. Second largest allocation in USA. MSRP

    Mayor, I’d go with the lighter colored spec but get the top in black. Other than that looks great.

    I think he is a good bet and very responsive to inquiries and customers. He has a big rep to protect on vette forum so he is a straight shooter. I just bought/ordered local just to make life easy...no shipping. I see-sawed about buying from Mike Furman and doing a museum delivery and driving the C8 home doing a road trip. I really should have done that but I guess I can't commit.

    I see there is no way to order the nice interior without a bunch of electronic safety and "convenience" crap.
