OTHER 2016 POSTS;
NEW ICONS ON YOUR SCREEN, NEW START BUTTON,ETChttp://www.corvetteconti.com/blog/?p=24268


WHEN YOU 1ST START THE CAR IT WILL ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT MEMORY KEY IS BEING ACCESSED


I DID NOTICE WHEN YOU GET BLACK WHEELS, THE CENTER CAP IS NOW TRIMMED IN CARBON FLASH BLACK RATHER THAN CHROME AS LAST YEARS WHEELS



THE 3LT COLOR LAY OUT FOR THE KALAHARI HAS CHANGE FOR 2016 - NO LONGER ON THE ENTIRE DASH




KEEP IN MIND, YOU GET RED STITCHING WHEN YOU ORDER RED INTERIOR FOR A 2 & 3 PKG, JUST NOT ON THE SEATS AND NOW YOU CAN GET RED STITCH THROUGHOUT IN OTHER INTERIORS BESIDES RED SEATING




























THANK-YOU , WE WANT YOUR BUSINESS

Thanks for the photos Rick! I have the red stitching option on my order, great to get a glimpse of what it'll look like!

Thanks Rick! I'm happy about the black wheel center cap ring. Now if only they had put on black lug nuts too!!

Anyone else not as big a fan of this Kalahari layout? I think it looks a bit too peanut butter and chocolate.

Agree, not a big fan for exactly that reason. No worry, other options to choose from!

I like the new center caps, but they kept the chrome lug nuts?

That's the last chrome left on a blacked-out car, I think. Maybe that and the screws on the license plate frame?

I don't love the body-colored vents, but to each his own.

Any pics of the carbon fiber hood yet?

Finally, non-black owners can hide those awful tail-lamp mascara vents in body color. I hedged my bets and got my Z in Black, so no worries there anyway for me.

I think the Kalahari looks good and so does the stitching.

Glad the Z06 wheels carry over - love them.

Now if they'd only put black lug nuts on there too, we'd be all set.

Here's great photos of the CF hood on my car -- which they STILL don't have the window sticker for, so I can't pick it up yet. (Grrrr)

So on my Long Beach Red with Brownstone interior I could have gotten red stitching?

The 3 LT Kalahari interior for 2016 looks so much cheaper compared to the 2014/15 3LT Kalahari interior with the doors and dash now black. Shame on GM for putting dollars before design.

Does the Kalahari leather cost more than black leather?
