Everything I expected and more

Hard to get. But once you get the car it's great! Fit and finish are excellent. It has good gas economy. I get 20 to 24 in the burbs. My car has every available option, although I can do without XM radio. I just wish the wind wasn't so loud when driving. The paint job is excellent, better than the past Vettes. Shifting could be more presice on the 6 speed. The headlights are fantastic! This car is too quiet. It needs a deeper, throaty sound.
Automatic top looks neat when in operation up or down. Navigation - COOL! Headlights and the style make this car look exotic. I cannot believe the gas mileage is so good - it's like driving a Toyota! Interior looks like an expensive sedan.
Needs better sound - too quiet. Exterior colors are boring. Shifter needs refinement. Some controls are confusing (radio and navigation). needs a heads up display to show what gear you are in (the skip-shift feature can confuse you as to what gear you are in).
