  • Brought Raven home from NCM

    OK,

    So we picked her up @ the NCM yesterday and beyond the whole NCM experience which was amazing and highly recommend.

    It was a 200 mile drive home yesterday and the PLAN was drive her home 100% on the back roads and take our time. We got on the road and made our way home , stopping by my step son's dorm. He was sick ( sinus infection ) but he seemed pretty excited to see the car and surprised about it. We waited there to see if he tested for Covid ( which he didn't ) and that pushed us back a while.
    So, we took the interstate the rest of the way but varied speeds and so on.

    Back roads, I tested the mag ride and drive modes and it's worth every penny. Car is super deceptive with it's way to go faster without trying. Brakes were good although I didn't push them since it was still bedding in.
    GT2 seats are comfortable for me. 6 ft, 32 inseam. Adjustments are perfect for getting what you want.
    HVAC controls in direct sun ARE hard to see and the glare on the glass from the color stripes on the dash is noticeable but you forget about it after a few minutes. I only saw it if I thought about it.

    Squircle is pretty natural after a couple miles but parking is where you notice it most.

    BLIND SPOTS are real in the coupe for sure. The mirror/camera is nice. I had to move it around to get some glare off it, but otherwise very useful.

    Took us a while to figure why the front cameras looked weird, but then realized it was the novistretch bra since it's covering the cameras.

    Can't wait until the break in miles are done so we can push it a little and see what the car can do.

      Congratulations. I have the black/red interior. I have found that I soon did not notice the reflections in the windshield and side glass. If I focus on the road and scenery in the distance I look “through” the reflections. I have to deliberately focus on them to notice them. They aren’t much of a distraction for me.
      BTW, my red Camry is named Raven and my C8 is Roxanne. lol.
