Hello everyone. I'm a new member from Chicago and recently purchased a 2013 Grandsport corvette with manual trans. It had 13k miles in the odometer, garaged kept in immaculate condition from one owner! It’s actually a dream come true for I have dreamt of owning one someday. My wife and I enjoy this as our weekend getaway car. The only mods will be a A&A V3/SI trim and Kooks or ARH longtubes headers and x-pipe which will be installed shortly after winter. I'm also excited and proud, not only as a new corvette owner, but a member of a family of corvette enthusiasts! Thank you Corvette Forum for having me.

That's one stunning Grand Sport!! Glad to hear that you got it with the manual trans. I wouldn't buy a Corvette without one.

Thank you for the welcome everyone! Unfortunately, the vette is parked for the winter and hopefully a short one. I'm already planning the long trips that my wife and I will be taking as soon the warm weather gets here. I can't wait.

Suggest you LOWER your Grand Sport using the "Stock Bolt" method as described elsewhere

I can see where as someone changed the rear spoiler to the ZR1 style (???)
I've also added the ZR-1 spoiler to my Front (C7Carbon (fiberglass reproduction) painted Gloss Black

I'm also in the process of adding the ZR-1 side skirts & rear wheel opening "Flares" (Mud Guards)

^Thanks for the suggestion, but I love her stance the way she is. Don't want to change a thing.
