Cupholders?

I have had my 2016 Z06 for almost 1 year now. I love the car but I have been annoyed by a minor issue. The cup holders are not very good at doing what they are designed to do - hold a cup securely....

We have been through Snelling many times on our way up to Sonora. This map seems to show the park is outside of Snelling. How do you get from the town to the park. Thanks.

Z06 A8 won't rev in Park

This is probably a dumb question, but why is it that after I start my 2016 Z06 A8 I can't rev the engine past about 3500 rpm? It just stops reving even though I have plenty of room left in the...

I had a C6 and had two flat tires. One was on a remote stretch of 101 south of Santa Maria in Calif. It was a relief to be able to drive the car 40 miles to a tire shop and they plugged the tire. ...

I was offered this option for my 2016 Z, but the dealer said that an Xpel wrap was a much better solution for protection. It is also a much more expensive option.

Z06 rear logo

Is anyone making Z06 logos (preferably metal) for the rear end of the car. Along the same idea as the ZR-1 in 1994-95? A picture would help.
Thanks

I use 0000 steel wool and it works great....but it sometimes takes a fair amount of elbow grease if I have not cleaned the tips in awhile. They get very shinny when done right.
