As for the garage.... I happen to have that exact 12in in length leftover after parking my M3 in there. Yeah, that might cause an issue....
Meh... I don't care if it was test driven and flogged or not because the LS engines are pretty much bulletproof. I'd simply change the oil @ 200 miles and continue to flog the hell of that car. I don't believe in babying a motor. Every motor I babied made low HP numbers while the ones I flogged from the get go made good HP numbers (granted these were motorcycles - but still internal combustion petrol engines). Cars are tools to be used and abused IMO. Chances are that I'll be harder on the car than pretty much anyone else who will test drive it.
