Also, all of the exhaust notes we have been hearing in the vids, they aren't production either. These cars were built prior to the final decisions on that. The sounds we heard in the presentation in the afternoon are the correct ones. Unfortunately, a lot of people had to leave to go take care of their cars when the freak passing storm come up. Anyway, factory stripes will only be white or cyber gray. The other colors that have yet to me mentioned will be dealer installed. You can also get the hockey stripes as well.

I'm thinking this was a pre-pre order event using the reference guide and making a list of options they'll input on the 13th. If I were you, I'd go back down to the dealer that Monday and see what the REAL options are. Just so you get the car you want. I've been on my dealers' list since August 11, 2006. Yes, 2006. I'm number 1 and we've had similar discussions about what I wanted, but until they can actually put it in, all we have is a write-up of what I want.......sounds like the same thing here.

Congrats on getting yours in line though. That's the first step.
Thanks for the info. I was planning on going back to the dealership when they got more info on it.

Ok so does anybody know how the seats will fold forward? Will you have to use the power adjustments or is going to be some type of memory thing with a quick switch on the seat?

Hmm, I would have thought they would put a rubber gasket or something between the fin and the paint.

Important to understand this is a pre-production car -- all of the parts you see are 'production-like intent' -- but they are primitive in that the graining/gloss levels/color match is not production quality. Please understand that as you look at the up-close-and-personal pictures.

If you find a picture of the back of the seat, you will see a recessed, rectangular handle up towards the headrest in the middle, when you pull it out, the seat will fold forward.

Found this out while playing in the IVER car at Indy.

No problem.......figured it got skipped.

Oh, don't know if this has been mentioned, but the passenger seat WILL NOT be power.

Per Cheryl Pilcher, they designed this as a drivers' car. And to save weight, they opted not to offer power on the passenger.

You mean that thing in the middle of the back of the driver's seat in this picture?

lol, i'm 18---going on 19 next month....but I am paying for the car.....so its not like its a gift from my parents or anything, I have worked hard for this...yes I know i'm lucky to not have a house payment, etc right now...but this is why I am going ahead and getting it now, so it will pretty much be payed off once other bills start pilling up on me.

I believe that the seat was back a pretty good way when i was sitting in it, but not all the way back..I'm about 5'9" and I was just touching the pedals...so I would have to move the seat up. I believe that will be enough room, it felt pretty big to me, and I'm driving a silverado right now, so hopefully it will be fine for you.

Lowering the back seat is very easy. I did it with the IVER at INDY. Just pull one strap located at the top of the rear seat. see pic:
