    1. GLARE: Agree. I suspect higher models like the z06 will have more CF options though. 2. REAR VENTS: Agree. I suspect some mods will come out to help mitigate that though. 3. REAR VISIBILITY: Partially agree. This is only an issue on the 1LT. 1LT only accounts for about 16% of all orders. 4. TOP OFF ROAD NOISE: Partially agree. Some cars are better than others, but lets be real. You don't take the top off and roll down the windows if you want piece and quiet. 5. DOOR SPACE: Disagree. Really? That is just 1st world whining right there. BONUS 1: Partially agree. Brake dust is annoying but is a fact of life on all performance brakes except carbon ceramic. Most people with high end cars are washing them at least once a week anyways. BONUS 2: Comparing the C8 'base' model rim to a C7 z06 is just stupid. Compare apples to apples. The base C7 rims are WAYYYYY worse than the base c8 rims.

    I'll get a lot of hate for this by purist, but I genuinely believe it's time for the C8 to have scissor doors (lambo doors). Those doors are just so long and it would probably help in tight spots

    Wish we could have heard your wife's opinion on the passenger seat comfort. I sat in the passenger seat for the first time last week and felt that there's no way they can continue with that center stack design. It feels extremely claustrophobic and I had no idea where to put my left arm

    Great video, thank you. I have a 2017 C& Convertible and love it except for same as your item with getting in and out of drivers side. I'm only 5'11", but a bit of an old fat guy (typical Vette owner) and even after I get in there is very little room for your feet if you lean the setback back at about a 10 degree angle. 
    I was hoping you would give your height and address that same problem,. From the video it "Looked like" your setback was almost vertical, so this maybe isn't a problem for you.
    Again, great video since I've been waiting to buy a C-8 but maybe I will rethink that now.

    As far as rear visibility: Toyota RAV4 rear view mirror has a feature that permits you to use the actual mirror or use the rear camera projected onto the rear view mirror. It is called the Digital Rearview Mirror. I find that it is a very convenient feature.

    You can change the rearview mirror to the rear camera display and it eliminates the blind spots. It gives you a greater field of vision.

    Trying to get into my first Corvette within the next 2 years should I go with the C7 or C8? I think the C8 Base Models will be fairly affordable once the 2023 Z06 comes out. Right now in my area a base 2015 C7 Stingray is $50K, 2017 Grand Sport is around $60K & 2015 Z06 is $65K+. All under 30K miles. Hoping in the next 2 years they’re in the mid to low 40s for a Z06 or I’ll see what the C8’s are looking at in 2 years.

    As I have now watched the entire video I realize it must be a comedy skit... 75/80 miles an hour and hair is "all over the place".... unlike the C7....I don't think that you've had a C7 as mine "waived" my hair over 50 miles per hour and guess what....I liked it!!! door is too long for a small garage....give me a break.....the 1LT with no rear view camera and a high wing spoiler is a challenge regarding rear view visibility ....yep! that's about right... challenges washing the car in part due to the fact that its a rear engine....you've gotta be kidding😂

    #6 Missing the 3rd pedal.
    Kidding aside, the blind spot issue is scary at a 45 degree intersection and a blind spot sensor can't tell there is oncoming traffic 75 feet away that will cream you if you pull out at the wrong moment. The only solution is try to use whatever lane area you might have at the intersection as you approach to angle the car closer to 90 degrees and maybe get a chance to see better.

It's white with a white interior and I'm very happy that I'll soon be able to add the C-8 to my collection of our family's 3 other cars, those car's consisting of my other car which is a 2021 $345,525 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive, my dad's $560,100 2020 Bentley Continental GT, and my mom's $265,220 2021 Maybach S 680.

    In 1994 I bought a new twin turbo Supra targa. If you think the wind and buffeting in the C8 is bad take a ride in one of those old Supra's and you'll appreciate what you have now. In 1995 I drove the Supra from Key West to Virginia Beach with the top out and I took so much wind buffeting to the top of my head that I lost some hair and I'm pretty sure I can blame my male pattern baldness on the wind damage to my scalp caused by that trip.
