There are plenty of members who keep their cars bone stock. And that's cool—it's their car. But there are load of folks who have boxes of parts stacked in the garage before they've even taken delivery, and can't be cured of the "mod bug." Over the last couple of days, renderings have started to trickle out, and we're seen everything from a convertible, to a round taillight version, to versions sporting sexy HREs.

So if you were going to mod your C7, where would you start? Take the poll!

I voted body kit, assuming that could mean a splitter and side skirts. Those HREs look great.

I voted paint the vents body color and I would also paint part of the rear diffuser. Too much black showing for my taste.

Lower it- as with all GM cars.

A lowered Vette is a must or me. Too much gap there.

It will not be 450HP. Probably along the lines of 475-480HP.

I'd put something like Porsche GT3 RS 10-spokes on a cyber grey metallic C7, most likely in carbon flash metallic to match the vents and spoiler/mirrors. Complemented by a red/black interior and red brake callipers.

I hope we can add the Z51 anti-roll bars. It was a popular mod to do on the base C5 and C6s.

Since the base C7 come with no rear anti-roll bar I'm hoping that at least the provisions (mounting points) will be there to install.

Also; I hope the base seats are similar to the Performance Leather GT seats. I'd like to add the optional Suede Inserts.

Honestly, I think I'm going to order my car in that color and put those exact HRE's on it.
That looks fantastic with those wheels PS'd on it!

Look for every gram that earned its way on there, AND remove it

those 300 pounds LED bars should be easy to find ?
