Insane!!! I know..."What do you expect?"

I cleaned her up again Saturday and headed over my cousin's house. We were going to cruise about the city on a beautiful day. I'm trying to get to the break in miles (now at 500) as I only drive it once or twice on the weekend.

Well, on the drive to my cousin's house, I got the usual stares. But there were a couple of guys videoing my car while driving down the street. I was in the far right lane and they were in the middle lane next to me. BOTH the driver
and passenger were videoing me while BOTH vehicles were in motion. They snapped off a few more pics when we got to a stop light. Almost makes me want to leave it in the garage....almost. I can just imagine what you ZLE 1LE owners are dealing with; hence one of the reasons I didn't consider it.

I guess I'll have to wait until this flavor of the month wears off and the attention is focused elsewhere.

There are a lot of bored people out there. Don't know why you would want to video someone else's car just driving around. Maybe they'll put it on Facebook and say it's their car.

The color doesn't help either, not only good looking but rare. At least they are in my area.
Nice choice.....

I have been followed, video taped, photographed while driving and in the parking lot. One kid that had just left the Dallas Cars and Coffee last year made a u turn and followed me into the parking lot.

I had an undercover cop pull me over 2 months ago for taking off fast but I didn't speed or squeal the tires, nothing. He just said "nice car!!"

Yeah, that Hyper Blue Metallic really pops. I saw it on a Camaro SS a couple of weeks ago. It would have been my first choice but my previous car was Midnight Blue Metallic. But again, I'm glad I went with the ABM.

To be honest, I don't think the stares will ever stop. The car design wise is just a 10/10. It really has excellent proportions yet looks insanely aggressive. So get used to it!

Kenny, when I had my 2014 GTR Black Edition, I would drive up and down Goodman road which is a 45-55 MPH road through town. 4 Lane both sides with a turning lane in the middle.

I would have to watch my blind spot, because kids would be right in my blind spot with their phone out taking pics of the car. Also, being asked if my girlfriend can stand next to it and take pics. It happened often. Then, I went 2 years with my F10 M5 and not a word (which was nice).

Now, I have had mine a week and it's back to dudes asking 1000 questions about the ZL1 every time I drive it. LOL

My wife grabbed this one off facebook that someone took of my car and posted. LOL
