Congrats! What a beauty! It's been a long ride from your first "lava orange or x color" posts! Any first driving impressions?

I don't like it... I LOVE IT!!!!! The Carmine Red gives a "rich" touch. Deep, rich color that shows class. I'm glad all has gone well. Just in time for the driving season. Enjoy and drive her well. Congratulations.

went to dealer today for paperwork they are tinting and wrapping it for me tomororw I can pick it up thursday or Saturday.

I didn't drive it but it is 2 hours home from Dealership and it might be rainy / cooler so it will be a good test!!

Don’t forget to ask for clear side markers if you prefer them.

Congrats! You’ll love the car!

thanks boys

I forgot to take inside pics but I love it - Plain Black, classic, ROOMY as hell and comfortable. Can't believe the leg room. I think with the seats folded down in rear I can fit 2 golf bags, and 2 small bags in trunk.

The headroom is great. I'm coming from a corvette Z06 - it was right and I'm not a small guy.

I'm impressed with the fit and finish. The body panels line up great, the interior is well laid out. I'm happy.

Honestly after the wait I thought I would be more elated. I just want to get it home and start driving it.
