See the folded mirrors fold back out (39 seconds into the vid) and the front end lift (starts at 1:14)

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

Digital feature on the dash. Talent gauge. Indicator said 0 talent left. Read and adjust to present conditions.

Reality check. Is it true that some Chevy dealers will not have C8 allocations? Guessing this is true based upon my experience today.

If that is really the only thing that's holding you back, talk to the dealer. He'll be able to either find an aftermarket chrome wheel, or eventually, the aftermarket will start stripping and chroming them.

Yep, covered this in the first post. You'll also find a pic of the C8 on its side with some of the bottom panels cut away so you can see parts of the suspension and the exact location of this blue oil filter. Apparently, the oil filter is mounted at the lowest point at the bottom of the engine (?) or will there be some small amount of oil that will need to be pumped out? Looking forward to more details, but yes, it looks like you could change the oil in your garage if you can get under the car.

Many nickels and dimes

Am I reading the price sheet correctly? If I spend an extra $11,500 to get the top of the line 3LT interior, I then have to spend and additional $395 to get seatbelts that match?

Mongo, you could be right. Seems like the matching color belt should be included. The 3LT description looks pretty short. Maybe there is more to it that is not in that letter. Regardless, if it was a sticking point the dealer would probably eat the belt costs....later in the year.
