Default What will be your first mod for the c7?

We know a lot about the C7 now, so what will be your first mod? Personally I'd like to see an intake that uses the vent on the hood, and maybe some round tail lights!

1/3 of the radiator air/heat comes out of the hood vent, so your intake mod should work great during an Oklahoma summer.

1_Paint the rear difuser body color... it brings the whole car back into harmony.
2_Aftermarket rims because the Z51 rims do nothing for the car. HRE photoshop just illustrated that the Z51 rims are a clear and present danger to the asthetics of car.
3_Body colored Side Cove Grill or stainless steel /titanium
4_Black Chrome race mesh grill up front

1. Paint black rear bumper/diffuser body color on Day#1 @ dealer!
2. Add body colored side roof spears if not included. Body wrap material?
3. Change the 4 big round pipes to "squared" types shown in photochops.
4. Add rear spoiler on Day#1 @ dealer if not included.
5. Tint all windows on Day #1
6 Remove awkward misplaced "Corvette" lettering from center rear.

Wow, .. 4 out of my 6 have to do with the rear!

A completely redesigned rear fascia, hopefully offered soon by a talented after-market supplier.
