Not sure if you custom built this car...if not, I'd definitely look into this. I've heard stories that some dealers check the PASM box during configuration not realizing the implication...they think they are selecting the Sport PASM but in fact they are optioning it out.

Good luck and keep us posted!
Unless you check PDCC with SPASM...that box is okay to check.

You can also check PDCC with PASM if you want the 4x4 look and the slightly softer ride...

Tire/fender gap does appear to be wider than it should be. Could be angle of photo or shipping blocks. My GTS with SPASM has a gap (btwn wheel and fender) of approx. 3 1/2 inches front and 3 3/4 rear. I can get two fingers between rear fender tire, but not the front. The suspension will settle just a bit over time.

How much harsher is the SPASM ride compared to the PASM. I just ordered a GTS coupe today (with the PASM) and sold my C7 Z06. The Z06 rode really good in tour and sport mode. Does the GTS really ride harsher than a Z06 with the SPASM.

Silly question but did you drive any of the GTS cars? I sold a C7 but not the Z06 although I did drive one of each and depending on the modes they were about the same to me.

Was the C7 a Stingray or Grand Sport. If it was a Grand Sport, it should have rode similar to the Z06.

It was a Stingray but it still had modes that stiffened the suspension and I did drive the Z06 as well.
