To add to that, I've owned 2 Z06 corvettes and this car is superior in a few important ways.

It can ride much softer due to the magnetic suspension.

The seats are much better. They actually hold me in my seat during severe cornering.

There are more creature comforts, like Bluetooth, Mylink and a backup camera.

I was genuinely worried that I would regret trading in my Z06, but I do not. If this wasn't my daily driver my opinion might be different.

If you can't find a ride, just do it. I can't imagine you would regret it.

Indiana has a 7% sales tax and a gas guzzler tax, just not the same crime rate as NJ.. My gas guzzler tax was $2,500.

Ha ha...true.
But I am desperate.
It is hard to commit that much $$$ without being certain it is the right decision.
Thanks to those who provided their insights.
They are very much appreciated.

Too bad you're in Jersey, I offered a guy in Alabama a ride down the drag strip to help him make up his mind, he didn't take me up on it, whatever


Good luck to you, it's an awesome car, hope you get one

Too bad for him...he would have had 12 seconds to make up his mind.
Thanks again for everyone's feedback.

At this point, I am probably going to pull the trigger this weekend.
According to the dealer's rep, this would assure delivery by the end of July.
Unfortunately, there are no deals to be had with the dealers around here.
Paying sticker makes me sad...

Excellent, though I take it that you did not buy that black one.
I actually sat in that car a couple of weeks ago.
Did you order the Orange and get a deal ?
If so, where abouts ?

In Belleville NJ, willing to give you a ride but the only thing is I go and see the ECS guys on Monday for a pulley and tune. So won't be stock after that.

We have a couple of salesmen from All American Chevrolet here in the CJ Club. If you feel like trekking over to Middletown and speaking to one of them, they might be able to get you a deal.

Here, I'll do you one better. Here are their accounts, just send a PM and see what they can do for you:

Chuck's PM
Greg's PM

I know right, I would have had to apologize to him for not getting to feel the car since the trip would have been so short

If you're buying in NJ and need a deal, I can help you out with Malouf on Rt. 1S in North Brunswick. The only thing about Malouf though is that I don't recommend using their service department. I go down and see Alan and Ray at Princeton Chevrolet at the 95/1 interchange, and they've always helped me out quite a bit. Alan also has a pretty sweet Corvette that he's done a lot of work on, so I usually trust his opinion on things.

Smart move going with the ECS guys, they did an awesome job on my car. I'll probably be doing a pulley swap soon as well
