    That was Rick Hendrick and the $ went to charity. He is a MAJOR Corvette collector. [COLOR="Silver"]

    I did the Bondurant two day school two years ago driving their '07 gen 1 CTS-V with about 5,500 miles on it. Had the time of my life but would not buy one of their well worn cars.

    Welcome to the OBM, 6MT wagon club. What interior color?

    Having spent over $850 to replace a tire and wheel last month, I think your purchase of the tire wheel insurance for $500/5 years sounds like a good deal to me.

    I was the same way when I purchased my 2011 V sedan it was a certified pre-owned, the only add on I got which the dealer recommended was the tire and rim protection. Two days later screw in sidewall on a brand new tire, cost was over 500.00 + mounted and balanced. The tires were brand new when I got it so i would have been pissed having to buy a new tire after two days of ownership. I know things like this happen but damm!!!

    I already have visions of some person who isn't even born yet inheriting this car after I'm daisy food, and being able to abuse it because i didnt (yet).

    Def needs tint. Currently working on plasti-dip, with a learning curve involved. Why didn't I look at the youtube video before I started? Because I am an idiot, that's why. Suffice it to say "you're doing it wrong." Separate post regarding this issue.

    Interior is grey. I currently also have a black on black car here in FL. Never again, or the terrorists will have won.

    What is this feature?

    You can start moving your car with the E-brake on then will release by itself, I am using it all the time and now I am teaching my daughter how to use it as she is new to the manual transmission.
