Default I finally made the change

Hello everyone,

I recently sold my 2012 C6z and picked up at C7z. I'm mad I didn't make the jump sooner
The car overall is very impressive, so far I have added a MGW short shifter, xpel, tint. I plan to add an x pipe soon.

Very nice OP. Enjoy.

What's is your favorite thing about the C7 vs the C6 to date?

And what if anything you miss?

Congrats on your new car! I'm considering going from a C6 Z to a C7 Z. I would really like to hear how the new car compares to the old one. Is it worth the upgrade? Could you compare how the two cars drive? Really on the fence here and would appreciate any feedback you could give.

Thanks!

Everyone loves the upgraded interior which is nice in the c7z, but my favorite thing so far is the magnetic ride, and how well the car drives for long distance trips. The power is noticeably different it makes more low end and mid range torque than the c6z.

Considering how cheap these c7z are getting I would say make the jump. I picked mine up for 59k with 9k. Everything you loved about the c6z is amplified in the c7z, I can't wait to put more miles on it.

Congrats! Why did you change to MGW shifter right away? The shifters in these cars feel pretty good to me.

Damn these cars do look good with the side skirts. It makes the car more muscular.

Congrats, great choice of color. I like the chrome rims better than the black ones.
