Interesting detail about ECO mode and AFM:

The main benefit of Eco mode for manual-transmission Stingrays is the activation of Active Fuel Management, cutting four of the eight cylinders under light loads. On automatic-equipped Corvettes, AFM is always active unless the driver engages manual mode via the steering wheel shift paddles. The automatic hasn't yet been EPA rated.

God really did a great job designing, marketing, and producing the 2014 Corvette Stingray. God is good, its all part of his plan for select people to buy and own them and others to starve in the world.

/sarcasm

I'm not a religious guy, but its funny some people think God is responsible for determining who can have things like a C7 and who cant. Somewhere, some kid is starving for a damn sandwich and somewhere else someone is thanking God for getting that raise at work.

Anyway to stay on topic of the C7 forum, check out dat ***:

Schwinn bicycle sales have been off - had quit a stockpile of reflectors, so Team Corvette got a good buy.

And that's not Mascara - it's Eye Liner. Get to know your cosmetics !!

Well - 7 is a number of some significance.

So perhaps the Big Guy approves.

On the 7th day he rested.....so we can have a day where we drive our vette all day long (after church of course).



I think he approves.

Of course you will say that.

Just looked at your profile, and noticed you made this comment:

"Stan---Thanks for the note and photo of your car. Looks great and what a nice setting.
There are fewer jerks on Planet 9 that on Corvette Forum. The Porsche experience is much better than Corvette."

Um, why are you here?

they don't believe in medicine, send members money to pray for them, alcohol a

seem to go together.

Although there is definitely an axiomatic dichotomy of opinion here, you are entitled to it. Although your opinion is probably shared by 0.0000001% of the human (and perhaps interstellar) population, you have that right to express it.

I also have the right to my opinion, and that opinion is that you should take your opinions to the Porsche forum where you and your pals can drink virtual Iced Mocha Latte's and crack jokes about Corvette's and complain how much the Corvette Forums suck.

Not worth wasting time on him. He's simply hoping/praying the 7 doesn't turn out to be a great sports car.

Yep, another guy who couldn't wait to get the car he really wanted, and settled for the regular joe, dime-a-dozen P-car that probably came with a free tennis visor, short shorts, and Birkenstock sandals.

Its all good ColoradoC6, we welcome you here and understand the need to visit so frequently as it helps with buyer remorse. You let me know what you need and I will be glad to offer my hospitality. First, would you like a shoulder to cry on? It's right here.. go ahead...just let those tears out..

That article might sell a few C7's to those cross-shopping it with a Honda Fit although the Fit does get a few more MPG on the hwy..... I guess it comes down to if you are willing to give up 3-4 mpg hwy for the sake of having over 300 hp more.
