Default C7 progress pics

Dont think ive posted any pictures of my car on here yet, learned alot from lurking so figured id post some pics.. got the car about 3-4 months ago (i think) completely stock and had plans on leaving it that way but we all know how that goes. First thing i did was tint the windows and lowered it on stock bolts to eliminate some of the wheel gap but keep it high enough so i dont ruin the front bumper or dont have to worry to much, then got the wheels painted black, did a double helix corsa xpipe and corsa extreme axle back.....future plans hopefully for next summer is adding a d1 pro-charger once the dollar gets better for us here in Canada.

Stock when i first got it


and tinted the windows


how it sits currently

Thanks guys, my only requirements when buying one was white and manual lol I got this one with 3,800km (2,800miles ish) I could have got a z51 for the same price but they all had 25,000+ km on them so I passed and went with the lower km. Only thing I dislike is not having mag ride as last summer I used to drive my buddy's dad's around that was a z51. Some coilovers should stiffen it up a bit

Nice car. I liked the chrome better, not a black wheel fan as most minivans have black front wheels which reminds me.

Love the new look with black wheels and tinted windows. If you are in Ontario, where did you get the windows tinted?

all my previous vehicles have had dark tint so I'm kind of used to it but it is pretty hard as these cars don't have much visibility from the back to begin with

All window tint on driver and passenger windows is not legal here which sucks because u can drive 15min into Washington where I believe it's legal. If I ever have to re do them I'll get them slightly darker

Default right decision on the wheels

came from a '12 GS with chrome everywhere (it seemed) and when I was given the green light to buy my last Vette (retiring next year) I still kept (my favorite for a Vette) the torch red but was really smitten by the black wheels (and black calipers)....great decision!
