Default New member, 1st Corvette

Purchased used 2008 C6 M6 with Z51 package last night. I guess my mid life crisis has come a bit late (I'll be 65 in May), but better that than never.
I did quite a lot of research before choosing and a lot of that was reading through threads on this forum which is why I want to be a member.

As far as I can tell, the previous owner added only a couple of things to the car, a double DIN GPS/Radio and a cold air intake (don't know the brand yet).
I expect I'll do long tubes and catted x at some point, but I believe I'll just do some driving first

Glad to see a resource like this forum is available!

Roger

Thanks everyone. In addition to the items I listed above, I think it may have the NPP exhaust option well based on reading a bit about it. They might be locked open though. Can anyone confirm from this photo?

Welcome to the forum!

Congrats. on your C6!

Check for valves on the exhaust pipes, may be covered by the trim piece.
