They are out, GM hasn't updated the website yet. They are just starting to hit the bigger volume dealer lots but people who placed orders have been taking delivery since about a couple of weeks ago. The plant took a 2 week period off and the lines just started rolling again. The guy I bought mine from has 12 deliveries just this week.

Carnage, Does Chevy still offer the option to pick it up at Bowling Green? When I was looking at a C5 a couple of years ago, it was a $500 option and the car was delivered to inside the Corvette Museum behind a velvet rope, on display.

You drove/flew to Bowling Green, got the factory tour and then collected your car from the museum.

They sure do and it's $499 this year. They also do a separate tour of the plant itself and if you time it right, you can see your car on the line during part of the work.

I didn't do Museum delivery this time but I will for the next one.

I did the Buyers Tour (http://store.corvettemuseum.com/services/buyertour.asp) as well as Museum Delivery (http://www.corvettemuseum.com/ncm_delivery/index.shtml) for my Z06... Both were simply amazing experiences! Here are some pictures of my car: http://gtb75.smugmug.com/gallery/2240944#116873904

And here are the results of a simple tune on my Z06...

Before tune: http://gtb75.smugmug.com/gallery/2713726#143847126-L-LB
After tune: http://gtb75.smugmug.com/gallery/2713726#143847107-L-LB

Pretty good results for just a reflash

Thanks! I wasn't 100% on the comp grey until I saw them... Really work well on a black car.

I was the same way, ended up not going for them. They look better on the Z06 wheel then the basic C6 wheel.

I agree - definitely more of a presence with the Z06 wheel... Saw a black C6 up at Road America over the weekend with the CG wheels and didn't like them.
