How much $$ for the Dealer job. I wanted Tension Blue stripes for my 17 GCCE # 663 but Paint was almost $ 125. a wheel., and car downtime of 2 days.
I went the cheap way and installed "Rimsaver" plastic stick on system. No exact Tension color match but 80-85% close.
They will PEAL off given enough force, but for $ 119, for 4 wheels and 2 hours of my time I had to try. Only had them 3 months
no problems yet but car is underwrapps for the winter 11-3.

I would find a local pinstripe company and check with them. They can probably do it very quickly. They should have a color called Process Blue which IMHO is pretty spot on. Just call around to a few and see what they say. Should be a pretty easy job for them.

You could also get a roller bottle that's used to put white pin stripes on tires and change the paint from white to blue and do it yourself for cheap.

Also a while back someone posted about a plastic tool that allows you to add tiny pin stripes to rims. That would also be a cheaper way to go and have the same look.

So I was in the area and visited George Matick Chevrolet on Wednesday. It could be me, but I only saw 1 CE 2017 Corvette remaining vs 4 that's logged for sale under the Google Registry. They didn't have a lot of vehicles in stock which more than likely stems from numerous sales combined with the plant closure a few months back.

I would verify this information with [email protected] just to be sure. The Corvette show area is a bit different from what I remember, and they had vehicles scattered across the showroom. However, all of their Vettes are kept indoors, so it's consistent in that regard.

I forgot to see the Collector's Edition #, as I was distracted by the Carbon 65 Edition and the cute lady who kept asking me if I needed help

I have been updating less frequently, every month or two I try to go through what is left. And I base it on what they show on their website, some are good at updating others are not (I think some leave stuff up there just to try and draw in biz). I've seen some disappear from websites, then come back too, which is strange. But it's what I have to go on unless someone reports on details like you have.

In any case, I just went through their website, they are showing three on the site. 258, 271 and 409. So that's how I left it for now :-)

Hello,
I would like to see pictures of your car/wheels with the Rimsavers. I put these on my wife's Lexus RX and thinking about doing it to my 2017 GSLE. They have been on her car for 2 years and still look new.
CHEERS!

Greg, it's me Ken, same guy doing the embroidery stuff, I'm the registrar :-)

At this point I'm just tracking a user name and city/state, which I think I have right for you in the registry. I also track option from the factory, which I have for your car as well, so I think we're all set.

Of course there is the Grand Sport Registry which is a different thing than this, I'm only tracking collector editions here.

It's a Ferrari f430, no where near 250, they go for 80 to 110 range, I just sold mine to get the z06

Just bought 027. Convertible, M7, ZO7, underhood liner and C7R car cover which I was told by a forum member that the car cover was probably an accessory, not an option. Maybe. But itís on the window sticker as an option, $1205.

Thanks, I've noted you as the owner. What city/state should I list you in?

I had posted that car a while back, was hoping someone could make a screaming deal on that car. How a vert like that ended up in Wisconsin I don't know, figured it would sit there for a while. They had it marked down quite a bit recently, about 20% off retail. Mind sharing how you did?

They still show it for sale on their website btw, probably to try and bring people in.

And yes, the car cover was on the original factory order. It's a dealer ordered option, was ordered with the car so you should have received it. One of those things that gives them a little bit of profit margin, nice cover though!

Being a Z07 equipped convertible makes it a pretty expensive car to begin with, had some good options too which got the MSRP up there a little. Had it had ground effects it would have been up there even more.

In the top 30 most expensive GSCE's on the list. But being a Z07 packaged manual vert, its a rare combo. Only 6 cars were made like that. That leaves only one of those 6 left for sale, and that car (#245) will probably be there for a while as it has a lot of options, one of the more expensive ones built. You can get a nice Z06 for that price...

Z06 has too much power for me. I live in Winchester, Va.. Yes I think I got a killer deal. MSRP was $96770. They knocked off $21000. Gave me $42000 for my 2013 427 Vert. (Man I hated to part with it). With my loyalty of $3000, this was a no brainer. I new the combo on this car had to be unusual and that to helped push me over the edge. I don't pick it up until next week. I will go get it if I have to but Im looking for a transport. It is still on the floor for now but it does have a Sold sign on it. I already have bought an Aero ground effects kit from ACS. they shipped it today

Im envious of your Manual shift. I have #28 and its also a vert with Z07 package. It also has just about every option except for the competition seats. I would have traded my A8 for M7
