The best prep is to read the infotainment guide and the onwer's manual cover to cover - that way you wont have to waste time having a sales guy fumble thru all the features you won't remember anyway...it'll give oyu more time to INSPECT the car - which is far more important than understanding bluetooth at the dealer....
both docs are here in the sticky section you can download
Mine is also due in September. Here is what I am doing.
1. Deciding what parts of the car I want to have X-pel installed.
2. This is the hard one, deciding on what skirts I want and if I want to go with the front splitter. Color will be carbon flash.
3. Already purchased Lloyd mats front and cargo.
4. Going to purchase the GM splash guards front and rear.
5. Decided on buying the front grill carbon vinyl wrap from Vettex
Plus, I will be at Carlisle looking to see all these parts installed and knowing me adding more items to the list. Either way, its a fun thing to do.
1) black out tint for the reflectors
2) plastidip for the emblems
3) CFM paint for other odds and ends
4) black lugs for the wheels
5) LED lights for the license plate and cargo area
6) griot's polisher and machine polish
7) optimum no rinse (ONR)
8) optimum spray wax (OSW)
9) SD card for music
10) extra usb cable to charge my phone in the car
Thanks Guys! Good advice.
I thought I had seen most of the C7 videos, but I hadn't, and I guess I'm weird - I will read the manuals.
Garage space is almost clear - my C5 was there.
Wife and I are going to re-run some of our C5 trips and hopefully a lot of new ones.
I plan on getting out and walking around enough so I won't need the Preparation H.
The night before I flew to Richmond, Virginia, for a long-planned trip to see my old friends in the Corvette club there, I told my wife that I might not fly back but instead drive a "new Corvette" back. She said she that was fine. When I got home with a 2014 Corvette, it took her a couple of weeks to get over the fact that it was a brand spankin' new Corvette. Maybe I should have defined "new" a little better.
