I do a vinegar wash to strip it down to the clear coat, then clay and Rejex. 10+ years and 152K miles and never a bit of wax. If you look past the stone chips, it looks showroom new. :lol::hide:

Check the RPO codes on the glovebox lid. You won't see Z51 there, but you'll find either J55 or JL9. If those rotors are drilled and slotted, they're aftermarket. You better measure the rotor...

My wife's boobs don't feel much different than the ex-wife's. You won't find much difference between C6 seats either, except the common feeling of the thickness of your wallet

To add to the above, the Z06 was the first to use the dual-mode mufflers in 2006 and they were/are not coded NPP, since it wasn't an option.

Tread width = better cornering, but less straight line traction
Height = better mileage, but less acceleration (gear ratio affected)
