Default I have a deal on a 2019 Grand Sport...

Just did the deal over the phone.

Sending a deposit and I'll pick up the car when I get my settlement (hopefully next week).

It's not a Z06 but I will be able to pay cash for the car, which is a good trade-off since I just bought a new house.

2019 Grand Sport 2LT with the Heritage Package.

Black on Black.

12,200 km (7,600 miles)

It is identical to my son's car except the color; his is Admiral Blue.

did you have your new wheels on the insurance policy, or is that a thing up there?

I did not notify them, but AFAIK they are going to include them as part of the settlement.

Not sure if they will value them at 100% or not.

I had all the receipts for everything I did to the car and provided them to the adjuster.

FLAT BLACK rules!!

The factory black rims are more than adequate, you can get some red paint from an artsy store to add the pinstripe.

Just noticed it came with ground effects AND high spoiler, SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!

7.600 miles is better than new!!

I have seen many posts of CF, both Z06 and GS, about cracked rims, I am probably one of the few lucky ones.

For reference, the roads in SE FLORIDA are MUCH better than most, never seen a pothole anywhere in my town.

Mine cracked at 12K. Replaced with forged (as in my avatar pic) and no problems since
