Default Moving from a C5 to a C6...wooo hooo!

I have been lurking on the C6 site for a while. This past Tuesday, I traded up from a 2000 Magnetic Red Corvette convertible to a 2006 Lemans Blue coupe (3LT). The car is almost new with only 3,848 miles on the clock. There was only one problem; there was about a ten inch scratch on the roof panel. Figured I could buff this out without much effort. Yesterday, I had the car at the local dealership to get the fluids changed. While there, I was told the car has a recall due for roof delamination. I left the roof with the dealership and should have it back in a week. I no longer have to worry about the scratch.

I am heading to Mid America Motorworks next week for an exhaust upgrade. I am getting their axle back, Quad Power ($899.00). They charge a flat rate of $100.00 for the install. I also avoid the shipping charges by driving an hour each way to their shop/store.

Congratulations!!!

how the roof problem took care of itself.

But I don't know how much of an upgrade it is going from that gorgeous Mag Red to LMB.



Just teasing.

Moved from 96 CE to 00 convertible and thought that was great. Now, think this is great. Definitely think the car drives a lot smoother and seems to have a quicker response on the throttle.

Congrats!! There have been a lot of us moving up from a C5 to C6 lately, I also moved into a Lemans Blue C6, just a month ago, from a black 98. I also find the C6 to be a lot smoother!

Enjoy!

Do you really think LMB is the best color ? I think it

Agree with this. The clear roof is great and you can frequently find them for sale on the parts forum.

Great move and congrats. Before spending a cool G on that exhaust I would look into the NPP exhaust. It's bi mode and you can control the valves. Open for loud and closed for quiet. It's a really great option and you won't have to deal with drone on longer drives.
