The interior lighting seems more blue as opposed to the aqua-color that the rest of us are used to... or is it just me?

Another discovery: if you accelerate a bit harder (not flooring it - you don't have to and I never did), it spins the wheels in second and sometimes in third gear (even in level2 - sport). If you're in second it's a bit scary- it wags the tail - controllable, unless you're turning. My new rule is to only accelerate harder in third gear, and even then, not in corners as it will get away from under you.

I also discovered the sound system this morning. It is awesome: crisp, powerful sound, easy to navigate menus. Best of all -in this case, it covers the exhaust so that my daughter doesn't say the car is too loud. You got to learn how to trick them...

In any case, when I'm alone I prefer to listen to the awesome exhaust sound.

So, are you saying the ZL1 has trouble putting it's power down to the pavement on the stock Goodyears? I thought that was an issue reserved for certain other 550+ HP ponywars.

I soooo wanted a drain in my garage but it is illegal in my town. I was going to put it in and hide it but changed my mind.

We should post picture of some of the garages! Of course with ZL1's in them so they stay in this forum! I'll post mine as soon as I get it.

So, first gear - forget it, second gear even if you go steady and push hard, not really floor it - the back swings a bit (controllable) and you can feel the tires spinning - and this is on mode 2 with traction/stability control on. Maybe it's because it's only 40 degrees F outside and the tires are not warm enough. I'm sure that if I put it in mode 5 race, it will spin the tires even in 3rd, - I believe it did that even on mode 2 on rough pavement. It is a beast! It bites back too! You need to be very careful with that pedal....

It's the temps for sure. Once you get warmer weather and get heat in the tires and the pavement you'll will see a big difference.

+1. A little heat will go along ways with those tires.

I've still got "permagrin" plastered across my face
as I type this - OMG what a car!!!

I'm not very savy when it comes to describing performance
and handling, but here's what I can tell you. When I came
off the entrance ramp and hit 3 digits of speed faster than
I could imagine and felt like there was soooo much more......
well, that's when "ultragrin" set in. There was very little
sense that I was driving that fast except for the very very
slow cars that were also on the freeway Those great big
fat sticky tires sure make it feel nice and stable. I'm sure
there's lots of other engineering marvels that made it feel
that way. I'll also say I think I'm going to be very happy
that I bought the Auto Trans. The manual trans may have
gotten me into alot of trouble

This car is spectacular!! Given the opportunity to drive one,
do so, you certainly won't be disappointed. Now I've got to
find the time for my co-workers and Camaro club members
to take her for a spin --- supervised of course
