Keep this in mind

Many of our forum are performance enthusiasts that are willing to trade some creature comforts - ride comfort - to get the Z51 toys. The Z51 option is a wonderful package for a relatively small price...

Kelly,
I am wondering about the highway ride quality of the C7 with Z51. Looks like your car was Z51 equipped. What did you think of the highway cruising ride?

As the battery is under the rear deck, the battery protection package allows you to plug into a battery port without having to access the battery. A must have for me.

An interesting set of options

This yellow C7 has both the carbon fiber top and the carbon fiber mirrors and flash spoiler. When combined with the black wheels on this Z51 it makes a pretty impressive car.

Dash covering

It is my understanding that the full cover dash in the picture is the result of ordering the "microfiber" package. I also understand that is not available in red. Can you confirm?

Red, Which Red?

After looking at photos of the red interior (Adrenaline Red is the only red listed) I'm not sure what to expect. Compare these two photos.
