Default Moved up to the C6 Forum. New to me C6

Made the move to the C6 family....purchased a 2011 GS from a forum member. "Learn2bgood"...outstanding member. Picked me up at the airport to finalized the deal. Had a blast driving this beast back to NYC.
Even after picking up a 4 inch screw in the rear left tire on the NJ Turnpike I could not wipe the smile of my face. Also was cough in a few down pours.....and it did not melt.

First question...anybody know the part number or color number for the GM colored gray wheels !?!?!? RPO code PYD

Beautiful GS and great color!

Paint code for the competition gray wheels is WA9243. I used some on my competition gray wheels and they were a great match despite looking like it would be a different shade initially.

[QUOTE=RayCE;1597444071]Strangely....every time I purchase a Corvette...it rains on the way home.[/QUO

Better than my trip home with my new to me GS 3.5 yrs ago. Got on a hwy that they were laying down chip seal (3/8' pebbles on oil) and it was a 2 lane road WTF I went about 20mph for the entire length of approx. 15 mi, people behind me were screaming, I just closed the windows and turned up the A/C, ha-ha. No damage but boy was I worried about it
I would much rather it rained
