C6 Is a Great Corvette

No surprise, you are buying an engine. They have just done a great job with the LS2. Performance-wise, the C6 is about as close to an engine stand with wheels as you can get. What will surprise you is how liveable the C6 is day to day. Driving it all most too much at the moment, but can't seem to get myself back into the other car. The other surprise is value. For the price, there really is nothing else. The options will undo this quickly, so just get what you need.
Does anyone type anything other than "Engine" here? Keyless entry and push start are nice "borrows" from the XLR, and ergonomics on whole are great. Very comfortable all the time.
While the idea is commendable, the 1-4 shift has to be rethought. It only encourages you to drive harder to avoid getting routed to 4th. Interior design is great, the plastics just need be one grade higher. But again, you're buying an engine, not a glovebox.
