Wish the GM pilots would leave the targas in so they can make sure they stay quiet, or identify any issues with them in that regard.

Lol, I was afraid the blue would be taken already
But since you're generous enough to leave the red one for me I'm good

I still have yet to see a C7 in person, but I'm liking them more and more

I know many here are stating what a radical change the C7 is but when you get down to it, from a looks perspective, one years difference in 1950's Chevys varied greater then a generational change does now for C6 to C7.

Pictures dont do a lot of justice to the difference between the two. When you have them side by side and you sit in the c7 you notice HOW different they really are. The c7 is much larger on the outside. Obviously the floor print is similar.... Just the way they cut the new lines its massive and aggressive. The interior does not have a tremendous amount of visual change... but it makes up for it in comfort and tech updates. They put the tops back in to head back to kentucky. The seals not being conditioned is most of the issue for the C6, we actually talked about that specifically.

It would be interesting to know if the C6.5 top creaks. I'll bet it does.

You mean you hope it does, right?

My fixed roof C6s (Z and ZR) have been completely squeak/rattle free. Very tight cars. I've had to adjust the targa on my GS, but since then it too has been quiet. A lot of folks have to make that adjustment, and many haven't.

Would be nice if the targa version no longer has the issue at all though. One of many things I enjoyed with my Z and continue to enjoy with my ZR with their fixed roofs has been the absence of this issue. Hoping the hi-po variant of the 7 is a fixed roof. If it's not, hopefully this has been fully addressed.

I've heard about this "creaking" many times, but have yet to experience it myself.

I own a '13 GS, and the roof panel makes no sound what so ever. If I didn't know it was removable, I'd think it was no different than any family sedan.

Prior to greasing my Targa connections I noticed that went it became really hot +95F the metal expanded and the roof would creak. I used the grease listed below and "roughly" followed the thread that I posted.

In short, spend about 10mins greasing your wife's roof connections, use Post #2 as a guide.

I use this:

I've greased my wife's connections numerous times, in only 4 minutes, and never needed a guide.

Of course that could be why I've been divorced twice!
