    Well for you 'muricans it is. Looks like we're getting the "poor cousins" treatment, so who knows.

      Torch Red, 2LT, bright red calipers, carbon flash open spoke wheels, high wing spoiler in black, red seat belts, red leather on GT1 Seats, and performance exhaust.

      Of course these are subject to change when pricing comes out. If Z51 is similar to what I will pay for High Wing spoiler and performance exhaust I will just go with Z51.

      I am hoping to keep my price below 85k.
      For the moment I'm using US pricing, and then trying different "GM exchange rates".

      The high wing spoiler is really an accessory. I'd just stick with the Z51 package. I'm told that 90% of the early buyers are doing that. I don't see keeping that spec under $85k CDN. $90k if we're lucky.

        Joking aside, we'll have to compare our ordering and delivery. I'm going for a build with no constraints in month one. How about you?

        My build has no constraints on it either. I'll post my build sheet, which is just missing prices for some reason??? Lol
        I went into the dealership in August and submitted the order, I'm in the first round of deliveries for Canada. I'm just on the fence on whether I should add red seat belts.

          I should also be in the first round, to Canada.

          Our builds are similar except for colours. I'm dropping interest in front lift after the "non-adjustability" issues came up. But it really depends on what's more important based on what you need.

            Yes, I was also thinking about dropping the front end lift as well. I honestly don't think I'll need it. I'd like the ability to lower instead. I'm also thinking about this whole Z51 stuff too after the leaked spec sheet. I mostly likely won't ever track the car. So I was thinking about possibly dropping Z51 and STI. Then adding NPP for the sound, and also adding 5V7 which gives you the Z51 splitter and STI. It will look like a Z51 and I won't notice the .1 second slower times and I could look at the aftermarket for lowering. What are your thoughts on that?

              The short GM video on Z51 actually put me off the package. I don't need a "track focused beast" for road use. However NPP is a must have if you don't order Z51.

              My strategy is placing an order for the coupe, and maybe changing to a convertible. In which case I'll need to flip the car to someone further down the line. And I'm told that 90% of the orders here are for a Z51.

              I personally like the spoilers and the package really isn't that expensive after you price out the NPP.

              If I do go for a convertible, in which case it will be a longer term car, then I'll probably leave out Z51.

                I originally wanted the HTC too. Then when I saw the coupe on the live stream reveal, I liked it's looks and the glass engine bonnet is great. I may also opt for a HTC as well... i'm not sure anymore. I think I'll be happy with the coupe and just call it a day and enjoy the car and keep it for the long term. Once we get official pricing and I know my exact costs, I will have to really consider what I stated above. So many first world problems......

                I was also all set on shadow grey metallic, both me and the wife said it was a nice classy colour, but then my kids chimed in (21 year old boy and 18 year old girl) and made me go ferrari red. I like them both and really can't go wrong with either.

                  I'm up here in the Frozen North as well. Not close enough to either of your #1 dealers though so I'm buying local. Probably won't get mine until mid-year.

                    Well, Canada's #1 selling Corvette dealer tells me they are submitting orders (that will include mine), on Wednesday 11th. Which would happen to agree with the date for GM receiving orders - Sep 12th. I will update this later today after I've had a little chat. Pricing would be nice at this point.

                      Waiting on pricing... I am going for ELB so I will not be an early order anyway so the HTC should be out by then. After seeing them in person and crawling in and around the C8 I am more than impressed and need to change some options. STI does not look good in person, It does match the splitter but is a hatched plastic pattern. Interior carbon makes the interior look too busy and is way expensive. Engine dress up is a must, without it looks industrial.

                        Yeah, I would love to see pricing before my order is accepted! I might want to change a few things. If the build that I want touches 90k I would have to consider the value proposition as a new CTS-V is under 90k and a new Camaro ZL1 can be had for under 70K. I think that I would likely de-option my C8 to fit in the 85K range.

                        Don't get me wrong I want the C8, my order is in, I just need to make sure that I am getting good value compared to other options. This is a big purchase for me; I am committed to be driving a sports car in 2020 as I have been saving for a long time but I don't want to get carried away with the car.

                          OK I have an update. Firstly on pricing.

                          Just as the US Base is $59,995 the Canadian base will be $69,995.

                          The Canadian pricing has been set and will be released in the next day or so.

                          Canadian pricing will be no more than a 20% differential to US pricing.

                          Canadian deliveries will be scheduled alongside US ones. There is no longer a constraint about winter delivery to Canada.

                              Maybe I should've ordered my C8 in Canada 🇨🇦. Congrats guys 👍
