Figured I would post and introduction thread. I've had my C6 for about a month now and it's the first Corvette I've ever owned. Needless to say I am extremely pleased with it. It is a 2005 3LZ, arctic white with red and black interior and the A4 trans. Mods so far are an aux input, exhaust turn downs, and a little bit of tinting. I did lower it on the factory bushings also. Big thanks to all the help I keep finding on the forum for things like the aux input and lowering. I've always been a Mustang guy but after having a Corvette I can't imagine going back.

Thanks for the correction. It has heated seat, heads up display, and navigation, with auto dim mirrors. Is that 1SB for my year?

Thank you sir! The Mustang was fun, but not nearly as quick or agile. Definitely and impressive car.

Good call that's where I got it from. I actually joined their facebook group a few days ago. Seems like a great club. I'm looking forward to getting out to a few of the shows.
