I would buy the gray hands down over the Garnet Red.

That Arctic Blue really is pretty. Dig it. Looking forward to seeing it dressed in 1LE aero!

I was impressed with the color in person. The photos do not do it justice. It looks more silver with a touch of blue while the pics I had seen made it look the opposite, like a blue with some silver mixed in. I know that seems like a silly statement but when you see one in person you will know what I mean.

I do have one minor issue I need to fix, and that's the seat's. I'm a big, tall guy, 6'6" 250 lbs and while perfectly comfortable sitting at the dealership and test driving, I found the Recaros to be too narrow at the upper back over the long drive back from the dealership. I am thinking of swapping them out with my 16' 2SS seats, but wonder about a couple of things.

Saw Sledge's video http://www.camaro6.com/forums/showth...ghlight=recaro and am curious..

- how difficult would this be to do? It doesn't seem like a big deal especially with Sledge's video above.

- Are there other options for seats? If I do the swap, I would still have the issue, only now it would be with the 2SS.

- Is there anyone that would be willing to swap a pair of nice to brand new standard seats for the Recaro's? Not sure if I want to go this far yet but the idea seems like it should work, as long as the first questions is doable.

I did find the headroom to be better than the 2SS with sunroof, I am much more comfortable with my helmet on than in the 2SS.

I'll post some pics of the car later today when the weather is better..

The car is a beast. Still getting used to the rev matching and driving a manual again, but man, what fun! I found myself forgetting I wasn't driving an automatic when coming to stop. The car is so close to the 2SS that my mind goes on autopilot after having driven the 2SS for the past year and a half.

Happy, I think it looks good on the car. Just like your kids or a beloved pet, now that it's mine, I couldn't imagine it any other way.

Very happy. Extremely happy. Did I say happy?
