No - that is why I prefer both the machined and silver wheels far better than black or chrome.

I will be the first to say I have questioned the purchase of my 2018 GS on several occasions, but not because I wanted or should have bought a Z06 - I went from a 2014 Base car to the GS. For 90% of...

If that is the test, I feel incredible thrifty - I haven't spend 6 months pay on all 6 of our cars combined.

How wrong you are my friend. Once completely autonomous self-driving cars get here, probably around 2030- our politicians will quickly outlaw all non-self driving cars to protect us from ourselves. I...

Pretty amazing that some fools (26 bids) are willing to pay $33,500 for a 2015 Z51 1LT with 30,000 miles on it and a salvage title - you can get a nice one with 10,000 miles for $42,000.

Actually it is done that way to save fuel - lower idle speed = greater fuel economy. The C7 (M7) idles at 600 rpm, my Jeep GC (auto) idles at 500 rpm.

At 9 months and 6,000 miles the OLM should be at around 10-15% - at 60% it sounds like it was reset 3 months ago.

Also for the OP, most engineers (and oil labs) recommend changing the engine oil...

They are producing 3,000; allocation will be based upon sales history - so the top 100 dealers will get about 60% of the cars, with the top 10 dealers getting 18% (540 cars); I don't expect the top...

I think you will see the base ZR1 at $119,950 + shipping and the heavy aero model at $124,950 + shipping.
Assuming I am not far off - does anyone expect the ME high hp model not to be at least $150k?

Does it really get so cold in Rochester that you can only use a Corvette from May 1 to October 31?
At least on Long Island, most years we can get to Christmas before hibernation starts.
