I drove test drive car home!

Went to my dealer where I ordered mine today and they had just received their first v6 allocation car. I've known the dealer all my life and since I have one on order they let me drive it home to show my wife. They drive just as good as they look!

I bet it will be weird when almost every person stops and takes a pic of your car

On the window sticker, what's it say the wheels are? They look like they aren't shiny, so they wouldn't be the "polished" aluminum wheels. BUT, on the Chevy build site, the only other 19" wheel option states "bright aluminum wheel".

Does the "bright" wheel really mean "painted"? If so (as I assume), seems like the wording should be changed on the build site. Could be slightly confusing.

18's are either black steelies or a fairly simple 5 spoke 'star' design. The 19's and 20's share the same design but have a different finish. I forget what the optional 21's are like.

Am I the only one who noticed the weird color of the yellow? Maybe it is just your camera but that car looks like a pastel yellow not the bright vibrant sports car yellow that I have seen. That is amazing that you got to take it home though.

Please post some pics when you get yours. I would like to see some Rally Yellow pics that show off the color well.

I took the pics with my iPhone then e-mailed myself to get them on my computer, maybe thats why the color looks al little off. I have a black 2SS RS w inferno interior but I gotta say this yellow is bas ass! It would really look much better with stripes though.

It would look better with glossy painted stripes. The flat black decal stripes that GM is offering would look terrible IMO. I am weighing my options now about switching my order to IOM or looking into having someone paint stripes on the yellow. Only thing about painting is i'm not sure I want someone sanding down my brand new car + the price is probably gonna be insane.
