Hi gang,

I posted last month that we were new to this forum and asked for your input regarding the purchase of a C6, preferably an 08 to 11 and the response from you folks was outstanding!

We found the ideal car for us, a Crystal Red Metallic, 4LT, NPP, Chrome Wheels, Tan top, Cashmere interior Convertible!

Thank you for your insight, suggestions and technical knowledge and we look forward to many years as forum members.

Wayne and Brenda Thomas

Love the tan top and cashmere interior. I have that in my '07 with LeMans Blue exterior. I love the contrast and it may be my imagination, but it does not seem to get as hot as a black interior when out in the sun.

Did you go M6 or A6?
