Tinted windows, 25% sides, 18 on the hatch, ceramic tint.

Black gorilla locking lug nuts

Wash and wax

Pop top top handle














Fix your center caps. Flags should point to valve stems.

On the C6 that was correct. On the C7 they are suppose to point to the word CORVETTE.....I know there was a post I read somewhere about it. Mine point to CORVETTE as well.

Mine was delivered pointing to the valve stem. I though they all did.

Wheel caps are installed by dealer. My dealer never got that message, my caps point every which way. I really don't care, certainly am not going to the trouble repositioning them.

Not on mine they won't, valve stem rules.

I did too! 80 miles round trip, in the morning through some torrential rain. I love the way this thing feels! Water was pooling up on the freeway in a couple places so much you could tell all four tires were hydroplaning and so had to back off. But when it wasn't quite that bad you could feel it squirming around as individual tires fought for grip. Fabulous!

Took the car to dealer's body shop after seeing 3 'pinholes' in the paint of the rear hatch.
Manager advised he has seen similar, and much worse, issues on Corvettes, and attributed it to something that occurred during the factory painting process. He stated he would have to repaint the entire hatch, and would do so if requested, as issue is definitely a factory defect. He further advised leaving things as they are, as the repaint would most likely result in more issues than currently exist. While I'm obviously not happy with the situation, I'll follow his recommendation and do my best to ignore the defect.

Default I was busy!

Was a little fearful about removing the bumper to do the Z06 grille but tackled it without a hitch thanks to all the great information here! Love the new look. Also did the Z06 base splitter and while at it I lowered the front and rear - probably 75% max (didn't go all the way) because those air damns in the front are 2.x inches from the ground. Should I just remove them like many others do or do they serve a legit function?

I have a very narrow 3 car garage. Standard two stall garage door on the right side and a single stall garage door on the left. The Corvette is parked on the left. It is a bit cramped because the space between the doors and the walls doesn't amount to much, only about 2 feet in the middle and less than one foot on each side. The house has a hardwired hookup for an outside generator and bypass switch to the circuit breaker with conduit that runs across the far left wall of the garage. This makes getting in and out of the Vette kind of precarious. Well, I fixed that problem today.
