Nice..... congrats!


the A8 is growing on me as the GM 6sp ( 7sp ) sometimes doesn't shift well.

Odd... my C6Z and both the C7Z shift fantastic. The only time there was an issue was completely operator related.

I've never had a problem with either the Vette 6 or 7 speed either... Had a Hurst Vertical Gate on my 340 Duster. Straight up and straight back all 4 gears...Impossible to miss a shift unless you really mess up the clutch timing...

Cool nice old cars ues my 2018 z06 is automatic and yes I struggled with a8 over manual as it was my first auto and yes it grew on me so when I bought my 2019 challenger hellcat redeye 797hp only 100 coming to Canada this year all auto guess when you get into that much power the auto is more reliable 8ve been a Chevy guy my whole life but the dodge auto shifts harder and more solid than gm but that is another story in itself

I do like Chevy's, just bought a 2004 commemorative edition, convertible, automatic and 35000k original owner, but that callenger is quite a machine to, super confortable for a fast car. I do like mopar's to, I am looking to trade my grand caravan ( my third) for a pickup, I tried the sierra denali and the 2019 ram, I have to say that the ram is an impressive machine, not as fast as the 6.2 in the denali but fast enought and the interior is awesome.

K-Dog I was wondering if you can tell me about the Sebring Orange as I'm in line for a C8 and I do like the Orange but also the Blade Silver.....I have only seen it online and sometimes it seems to wash out into a yellowish orange can you tell me your thoughts on it.

Cheers,

Kevin

Hey kevin I had not seen one in person when I ordered the car so wasnt sure whet to expect my last 3 vettes l have ordered in yellow. I love that colour on a Corvette they have the right lines for it like a Ferrari that being said I've had yellow for 7 years and came very close to ordering this one in yellow but it was time for a change. I settled on the orange partially because of the design package option and second guessed myself all the way till delivery once I saw the car live I loved it in the shade it just looks orange in the sun it takes on a whole other dimension it's a very unique colour and certainly draws attention. I am very happy with it and glad I went that route but colour is a personal thing and ultimately it has to be what makes you happy as you are the guy that will look at it every day I have no problem looking at mine lol

I owned a 2016 Daytona sunrise orange stingray. First time I saw that colour I knew that’s the colour I wanted. I like to stick out in the crowd. LOL. Then I heard you should trade up to a GS or Z. So I’ve bought 2x 2019 Sebring oranges. Grand sport and Z06 (I’m sticking with the Latter, Manual Trans. Z, for now-I want a fat bodied SO—C8). I’ve gotten way more attention with the Seabring orange. Way way more attention. (Corvette)It’s great in any color. And, as u know, this colour is not for anyone... Because people that like their’s in black will always buy them black (Yellow, yellow, etc, etc). I’ll always purchase a bronze, orange & green Vehicles. :)

Awesome review.....yes I hear you on everyone's individual colour choices. I am torn between this and the Blade Silver as I like both very much and its just that I can't see it live that has me flipping back and forth....everyone has been coming through in spades and I SUPER APPRECIATE any and all contributions.....hummm funny I have not heard much about Blade Silver owners.

Cheers,

Kevin

Kevin the reason you have not heard anything from the blade silver guys is they are all doctors and lawyers and have no time for this lmao. Just kidding everyone. My first c5 was silver looked classy but in my humble opinion it's an old guy colour Corvettes are all about staying young leave the silver for the Audi's and mercs doctors and lawyers🤠

You raise a valed point if you are buying your car with resale in mind the market for silver grey black or white will certainly be a larger one for sure. I buy my cars from the heart and when it does come time for them to go to make room for a new one I trade them back to my dealer and it's now there problem to sell lol. I have a plum crazy hellcat redeye WB as well not everyone likes purple but in my opinion best colour ever on a challenger cheers
