Default Goodbye C5 General

It's been a great 8 years with our 2000 convertible and here on C5 General, but we decided it was the right time for us to move into a C6. I have learned a lot from the knowledgable folks here in C5 and I hope to learn more about the C6 "over there".

It was tough parting with our 2000, we both really loved this car, but I know we will fall in love with the new one also.

Saying goodbye to this:


"New to us" 2010 Cyber Gray Grand Sport Convertible:

Can't say I blame you for making the switch. Your DBGM car was beautiful, but the GS is a very nice ride and offers some good upgrades over the C5. Congrats and enjoy.
