Oh - and guess who knows what lightbulbs the Z/28 uses, or is it "Z28"

In the Jay Leno interview Al mentioned they kept the slash in the Z/28 so the manual is incorrect

Yep - hence it being in quotes

But yea, kind of annoyed that there are a bunch of errors in the DIC software. I mean I'm sure it can be fixed with a software update.

ZL1 looks great congratz! Those recaro seats def do hug you a lot better. They were so comfy down at fest.

Sucks about the DIC though. Must say it being in color is really sweet! Would be awesome if that made it into the 6th gen.

I'll bet someone a dollar that the Z/28 comes with the manual Recaro option.
I'm pretty sure it's been stated that the Z/28 Recaros are manual.

And yes, I'm becoming one of those camera whores who posts every detail about their car - wait, wasn't I already doing that?


Going to cars and coffee in the morning, haven't been since Kaylee's final burnout. Will be posting pics - not to worry.

More comfortable IMO -considering the hoops GM is making people jumping through in order to buy the Recaro's after the fact, you might want to ask them if they want to trade seats Lol

Agreed. Told them that I'll be forming my own opinion on the comfort level of them. I know the ZL1 seats are much more comfortable than the seats that were in my SS.

From the Ashes: The Stig's Ashen Gray ZL1 [COTW 1/16/12]

Video of the 2014 DIC, can't figure out if they removed a few options from the DIC and just never updated the manual - or if I'm missing a couple screens.
