    Did you like the wheels on this blue one or the blacked out ones on the red one better?

                  Great video Jag. Two questions. What are the buttons on the right side of the frunk and did you sit in the passenger seat to see if there was more leg room than the C7.

                    Jag, you knocked it out of the part for us detail curious. Thank you so very much. I learned a bunch more, and thanks to you, we have our best view every of the “ghost” C8 emblem in the speaker on the top of the interior waterfall. To accomplish that ghost emblem, this I learned from talking the Chief Interior Designer who did the car, Ryan Vaughan, (Thor who left the C8 project April, 2018 when the interior of the car was finished, when Ryan was promoted to the head of GM design China), they experimented with different speaker grill covering “weave patterns.” By tightening up the weave for the exact center ghost C8 emblem area, they were able to produce this.

                    I had about 15 minutes of great fun talking with Ryan reveal night, both before and after the livestream,. Thank you Ryan for being one great, super friendly, terrifically helpful person!!!

                      First, yes, I sat in the passenger seat and was quite comfortable. Check out my photos from Friday (the one with my hairy legs in it). LOL

                          Thanks, that sure isn’t the case with me in our C7.

                            thx again JAG ... very nice video indeed.

                            I'm not screaming here, but there are a few things I find "unappealing" on the C8. I wish that the lower grille surround had body color involved, I'm not a fan of the "black" lower center section. I'll put my license plate there Not a big fan of the front splitter either, I'd like it better if it was more elliptical and not follow the bumper/lower grille outline. The other glaring thing for me is the fact that the side scoop front blade does not fit flush with the scoop outline ... see pic:

                            I know it was designed that way, but I'd rather have the body color option and I'm not sure how it will look with that mismatched edge. I also think it could be a rock chip magnet with that edge exposed.

                            All minor stuff obviously, and I'm sure the aftermarket will have something I like ... none of the above will keep me from getting one.

                            Anybody know if "Rapid Blue" will be a metallic color similar to the old "Nassau Blue"??? I keep looking at the pics and I can't tell.

                            Oh yeah, for me anyway, silver wheels or any of the other wheel choices, are better than black ones

                            Looking forward to Carlisle to see them for real.

                              Great video Jag, you gave us a perfect shot of the "shark's tooth" when the passenger door was open. On the other side when you put the camera deep into the side scoop it looked like a doctor's "say awww" moment.
