    Congrats. Your car looks great. Now that you have it don’t feel guilty about just going to your garage, staring and smiling at wee hours of the morning. Or is that just me. 😉

      Picked mine up this week at a courtesy delivery site and only have 40 miles on it so far But when I get the PPF on next Tuesday will get to enjoy it more than just caressing and walking around to see it from every possible angle
      Optimistically hoping my car is built in 2020

            Awesome bud. I have the same car (Black HTC Z51 3LT) except natural dipped tan inside with red seatbelts and calipers... I am mostly happy with the car and share most of your first impressions as well, but I thought I'd share also some less positive impressions with 91mi on it and 2 days driving it.

            1) visibility poor but worth it because car is very pretty
            2) power - lack luster. I'm hoping it has to do with the break in period (note I had a z06 prior to this which may be influencing my opinion)
            3) sound system - ok but after comments from many I thought it would be a bit better - when top is down especially. Maybe they should consider speakers on the headrests??
            4) exhaust sound : very low from the inside which is great - decent from the outside. Could be better... but that is personal taste
            5) very noisy front lift system - I'm hoping it is because car is new and will fade with time
            6) pretty basic entertainment and nav system... GM has excellent systems for most of their cars. Why do they have such a basic system in this car ?? I'm not talking about the tracking or PDR options ... those are great. I'm referring to the stuff that most cars today have...
            7) camera rear mirror - great idea but I find it has 2 issues. it is located to close to my face so kind of ackward. If it were positioned slightly further forward there would be a more normal distance to look at things. I am also getting a bad reflection during the day on the actual mirror that competes with the mirror display image. I live in SOCAL so most of my driving has been with the top down.

            Other than these small issues, the car is fantastic. Handles really well, little wind noise with the top down, and definitely a head turner.

            BTW, my back window doesn't automatically close when I close the top? Could that be a setting or will I always have to remember to close it separately? I have already left it open a couple of times when parking...

            Like you, I have been waiting for the car for over 1 yr - 2 months and maybe because of this my expectations were overhyped...

            Anyways, I don't mean to take away from anyones excitement. The car is overall a fantastic car and we all get much more than what we bargained for !!!

            Congrats on your new car !! you have excellent taste :-)

              This is what the owner’s manual says, you might try holding the switch longer.

              ”After the convertible top is completely closed, a chime sounds and a DIC message displays. Release the switch. Raise the windows if needed. If the switch is held after the chime sounds, the windows will start to raise”.

                Congrats on the new HTC! I assume you won't see this message right away as I hope you're out enjoying the nice temps here today. Where are you located if you don't mind me asking? I would love to see a HTC up close if possible. I'm in Westboro Ma.

                    I'm a little north of Boston, about an hour from Westboro. Certainly could meet up halfway when it's nice again!

                        Ken, are you completely happy with your interior choice and what was your second choice or other interior colors you considered? I am 99% leaning towards the black w yellow so really curious on your thoughts. I was also looking at the blue, and black/red two tones. Thanks!

                          Yes, I love the black with yellow. I didn't really have a second choice. I kept to the black and yellow theme with the interior, seatbelts, wheels and calipers.

                            Thanks, was hoping you'd say that...and hope you don't mind the copying, although mine will be silver flare exterior!
