It's just not your style...

You should give it to me!

Really digging the interior colors. Is that stock?

Is this a trick question? There's nothing wrong with it.

I'm not a big fan of black wheels but they do have the polished ring & rivets. I think overall, the car looks great!

I love that flavor of blue - it's not to dark and not too light.

If this shade of blue (or one close to it) were available in the 2013 C6, I'd have bought it.

You asked...don't like the rims...the center strip trim on the doors...or the tan interior. Other than that, I love it!

Honest opinion? I love the color, don't really care for the wheels at all. Not a big fan of the bsm's but they aren't terrible. And while the color of the interior doesn't necessarily clash with the EB, it wouldn't be my first choice. But who cares what I think, if you love it that's all that matters!

That is one beautiful car. If I were forced to find fault, I would point to the wheels. The car is so eloquently styled while the rims are too busy ... for me anyway.

Nothing going on not to like at all, that's for sure.

Its happening !

The wheels; while "trendy" to some, certainly help to freshen up the overall appearance.

Body Side Mouldings work on some C5s, not so much others, in this case, removal is in order to make things look less busy. Just one opinion.

Screens and the shifter are excellent choices to boot. Tumbs up !

Thanks,Matt

Really nice car you've got. I've not seen an EB car with oak interior - the ones I've run across, including mine, have had either black or light gray interiors. And while not a big fan of black wheels, they do look OK on your car.

1) Not a fan of black wheels, the design is good, but blk. is got to go. 2) the calipers IMO. should match the car. 3) other than it not beeing black, You have a nice looking car.
