    window tinting Blackwings....

    True! Definitely gets bright on a blue sky day with the white stuff on the ground (like today up here!) But I'm biased towards no tint on the windshield and just using sunglasses for such conditions. Sunglasses can come off at night (at least for some!)

    window tinting Blackwings....

    Still waiting on my 5BW to be delivered... But the 35% rear/side windows has been my go to for past vehicles... Seems the right balance of look and still great visibility for my eyes. However, maybe I'd consider darker if I lived in a sunnier 12 month climate? Driving a dark-as-sh!t tint...

    window tinting Blackwings....

    That E39 is dope. I’m a 35% rear and sides guy, nothing on the windshield.

    CT5-V What would you buy if you won $230,000 (tax free)?

    You could also just pay $162K and pocket $70K rather than financing at 7%! But maybe that's obvious :) BTW - did you order the 5BW from Forbes in Kitchener? I was #2 on their list (behind the still to be delivered 2022 model) but backed out when I received an allocation from Barry Cullen in...

    Looking Ahead--2024 MY Watch / News

    Hard to say, but I'd assume their plan all along with for at least a 3 model year run. Generally a low-volume car like this is not a profitable endeavor on it's own...but rather more branding/halo car project that is less dependent on sales data, etc. I wouldn't imagine Car&Driver reviews...

    Blackwing Order Tracking - 2022 Model Year

    I mostly agree. But you wonder a little about damage to the paint and whatnot… Still, I’ll end up getting some level of paint correction and ceramic done once it arrives, so not a huge deal.

    Blackwing Order Tracking - 2022 Model Year

    Oh I’m aware of the goat rodeo! But it seems to be pretty inconsistent whether you get the looooong delivery wait or something more reasonable like a month or two. Either way. Happy that I will eventually have one. According to the VIN, I must be #358 of the ‘23 5BWs

    Blackwing Order Tracking - 2022 Model Year

    Woohoo! Dealer called and car is apparently built with a VIN. But no scheduled delivery (shocker). Ontario, Canada order. Anything I can do to track status myself? Honestly I’d probably prefer it didn’t arrive until March at this point. But also wouldn’t want it sitting in a lot in...

    Pics of your Blackwing in regular parking spots

    Looks great. Are those 35% tints in the side windows?

    Winter Wheels and Tires

    How’s it going with the OZ/Vredstein setup? Thinking it’s the most likely choice for driving this thing in Ontario next winter. Have you had it out much in snow yet?

    Winter Wheels and Tires

    Another forum member went with the square setup earlier in this thread: Winter Wheels and Tires However, you'll obviously need new wheels as well.

    The Wave Metallic thread

    Looks great. What % tint do you have on the car? 20%?

    The Wave Metallic thread

    I have nothing to add to this thread (yet) as I await my 2023 5BW in Wave Blue. But I much appreciate it. Build week of Nov 21st apparently.... fingers crossed it arrives in time for spring! I want multiple angles of those Wave Blue 5BW with tech bronze wheels! :D

    Winter Wheels and Tires

    I agree, a couple front and rear angled shots would be nice to get a view of the widths. Wheels look great.

    My 23' BW just showed up today.

    congrats! Does the V badge on the back have tiny “Blackwing” lettering at the bottom? Or just the usual V?

    5BW without Parking Pkg?

    I don't disagree, I'm just not entirely clear what is and is not included if you don't opt for the package. I understand the package to include: - Air Ionizer (meh) - Rear Camera Mirror (nice) - Hands-free deck lid release (okay) But I'm confused about: HD Surround Vision1 Surround Vision...

    5BW without Parking Pkg?

    Finalizing options with my dealer and considering not adding the parking package to a 5BW order? It’s not overly expensive, just looking to limit the amount of electronic stuff that may not even get delivered… Anyone out there without this package? I assume the car still has a reverse camera...

    CT5-V Finally! I got the phone call!

    Woohoo! Got the call today that my dealership got a 2023 allocation. Confirming my options now. As per Exia, carbon packages on constraint and the carbon-backed seats. Went with: Wave Metallic Suede back/Jet Black seats Tech Bronze wheels Red brake calipers Red seat belts Ultra sunroof...

    Winter Wheels and Tires

    Interesting. Those OZ’s would be a nice winter setup. Are those specs a fit for the 5BW?
