#26569 is home FINALLY!



FINALLY...it's here. I got home just as the sky was opening up and dropping more rain on us, so I'll take some better pix soon.

First impressions (after a whole 13 miles)...LOVE the way it drives, handles and "feels". The clutch takes some getting used to...wish it didn't grab so high and was a little more firm. BA stereo sounds decent...good enough for me. Exhaust tone is decent...just wish it were a little louder. Lots of buttons to play with.

Is it me or does it feel like whenever there's a car behind you, it feels like they're totally tailgating...and only inches away from the back of the car. Could either be the fact that you can't see the back of the car out of the rear-view mirror...or I was just totally paranoid.

The only imperfections I noticed in the car was some swirl marks and some bubbles in the (dealer installed) stripes, which I noticed at the dealership and made them aware of.

Anyway...here's some not-so great pictures. If anyone's in the area (Southern NY) and still waiting for their car or on the fence about ordering, feel free to PM me and come check the car out.

Congrats on the car, it looks great. God knows you wait long enough for it. Was it worth it? I think I know the answer to that one. LOL.

I am loving the IBM, my second favorite to black. Love it on our TB.

Thanks.

Well...HECK YEAH it was worth it (even with just 13 miles logged).

I love the IBM...especially with the silver stripes. I'm 100% happy with my choice.

IBM is gorgous. I had the reverse color of IBM on an older Camaro and I loved it!

I was so glad to see when they came out with IBM.

Congratulations! Looks sweet! Nice garage, by the way. That pic would look even better with the Camaro backed into it. Enjoy!
