    Ok I’m curious, what colors do you have in mind?

        Well I’m pondering that combo. Would be different. Hope you can get it your way.

          I’m ordering a Z51 convertible for the power, brakes, tires, electronic limited slip rear end, FE4, the front end lift (high driveway entry and those darn speed bumps), and while I have no issues with the spoiler, I just came back from the LA auto show and now that I have seen the car without a spoiler, it’s an elegant look.

          that all said, the actual high wing that was up on the accessories wall is pretty nice too, much better than the pictures I’ve seen suggest. IMHO.

            John I 100% agree with your opening comments on wings. I feel the high wing is more of a low wing like the C7 ZR1 and will not be difficult to live with. The red car with the stripes and high wing really makes the C8 look like a race car.

              Interesting comment from BrainF18. "Z51 with spoiler delete! I wish this option existed". When I was at the LA Auto Show last Friday, the Rapid Blue Convertible on the rotation stage did not have the Z51 spoiler, so I assumed it was not a Z51 car. However, the GM person at that exhibit insisted that the car was a Z51 car! So maybe you can delete the spoiler?

                The GM person was dead wrong. Sorry but there is no option to delete the spoiler with a Z51 package.

                  "The GM person was dead wrong. Sorry but there is no option to delete the spoiler with a Z51 package."

                  When I was having my home constructed, the designer said, "anything can be done, if you are willing to pay for it. Of course, it might be prohibitively expensive."

                    The high wing rate rate is ...

                    With voting still open, and checking our here and there, it is appearing that on Corvette forums, the take rate on the high wing is 16%. However, it has long been a phenomenon that forum model and option take rates are more “aggressive” than the average Corvette buyer, e.g., more Z51’s than non, more aero components, and in this case I would guess a higher high wing percentage than among the average of ever dealers’ C8’ orders.

                    So might the high wing percentage be later shown in Michael Antonick’sThe Black Book when the 2020 ordering year is over be at around one-in-eight?
