I have ACS XL rock guards on my 19Z. I like how they look.

Definitely the XL rock guards. I had the enhanced size rock guards and they didn't do as much for protection as the XL ones do. The XL ones seem to be a little better quality as well! I actually have a video that compares the 2 that should help make the decision a little easier.

Congrats! Looks like a Z07. Nice to see one with yellow calipers for a change.

It is WGG. And I was planning on the enhanced guards from acs. I appreciate that video of the comparison, however in my opinion, I feel like the xl ones stick out a little too far and look out of place on a sports car. I guess I am just not keen on the idea of mud flaps on a sports car. I do plan on getting it wrapped in paint protection film too though, so I was hoping I will get a little protection with the more subtle acs enhanced guards and then have the film as a back up.

Installed new Odyssey 48-720 AGM battery and hooked up the Ctek mxs 5000 tender. I took the Brey Krause harness bar out today (it will be for sale soon). Also I had a Safecraft extinguisher from a previous car, and the BK mount for it was already in the car so I threw it in. It does cut down on the passenger leg room, but its not too bad.

Does anyone know where I can buy the plastic covers for the d eye hooks that are in the trunk? There are four of them, two on the floor of the trunk and two on the sides in the plastic side panels. One was missing when I bought the car. Thanks guys!

Thank you!! I haven't driven it more than ten miles so far (and that was the test drive so I really didn't get on it), but I will say its a huge improvement in looks (although I still have a soft spot for a clean c5 frc or z06) and the interior quality/luxury feel is worlds above the c5, especially the seats and radio. The only thing I don't like is; the c5 felt like you were sitting on the ground and it felt like a race car, was lighter, and more minimalistic. The c7 to me, feels like I'm sitting in a normal car or sedan. I have to say, the stock exhaust is the best stock exhaust I've ever heard. I really hope the borla x pipe doesn't change the sound. I just wanted it a little louder
