  • Clearance is higher than a Honda Fit

    I just measured the front end clearance of my Honda Fit, which is the lowest car I own. It is 4 and a 1/2 in, which is an inch lower then the C8. I don't think clearance will be a problem.

      However, the approach angles may be more than a little different between the two cars (and not favoring the C8).

        I rarely scrape the front splitter on my GS. I do however rub that rubber air dam more often.

          I rubbed all the time in my C7. Expect the same of C8. It will be even worse if you spec the ground effects package as that will lower the front end too vs. base.

          Axle lift for the win!

            Of course it was on a grass field but I looked at that rubber airdam and it sure did look like it was touching the recently mowed grass..

            im sure it must have been the grass as opposed to pavement...

            i sure wish that e60 was available on the 1LT but I have to draw the line somewhere as a responsible adult...

            responsible adulthood is over rated...

            you guys that get E60 are going to be so cool...

            still keep in mind the back end is at regular height I believe...never want to bottom out that rear engine or transmission...its been stated its located low so that the top of the engine is below the top of the rear tires..luckily the dry sump oiling system with three scavenging pumps will probably keep is safe...

            i believe if gm ever moves to a corvette awd sport cuv...that lift system will be on both front and back suspensions

              Exactly. The C8 has a much longer front overhang, which will put the nose of the car a lot closer to the pavement on driveway aprons and the like.

                The Honda Fit only weighs 2550 lbs also front end doesn't stick out as far. If were comparing apples
