The post disappeared and then reappeared, and I'm not the only one who witnessed it. Can you explain why? I don't wanna start stuff, but the fact is that posts disappear if a vendor complains. I've...

It's all good. Not bashing, just not my thing I guess. Not sure why I was targeted. Probably the only one reported so far. The other negs will get eventually deleted and we'll all have a 2nd faux...

hmmm.... If you are referring to me. I did not delete anything. Now that the sponsor is in the thread you will see everything suddenly get 100% positive.

Sounds strange I suppose, but I generally shift by sound. Once you figure out what 6600 RPM sounds like you shift right before that. I might have to watch the tach in 1st to refresh my memory,...

I don't wanna piss on anyone's Cheerios, but I don't get it. It's not hard to open the door in the first place.

I did a bunch of shows when I first got the car, but more likely to take my garage queen 04 GTO to one. It's usually the only newer GTO, where as my C7 can get lost in the Corvette crowd at a large...

Probably wanna check the alignment. If 3 wheels are damaged, probably a good chance the alignment is borked. Does anyone else drive the car?

I use my "poverty pads" with the pucks. These are left over 2x6s cut about 6" long. Work great and $0.

Been sitting forever and has basically been broken in with test drives. I'd need more than 11% off. The wheels in my head might start turning at 15% off. 11% off MSRP was the discount I got for mine...

You'd need to provide the width and offset of the back wheel, but assuming similar to stock, then you can realistically go up a couple sizes without much risk. I think 295 is maxed out on a 10" wheel...

Some of us on here theorize that the Z06 A8 has less issues simply because it spends less time in AFM. It will fail the same way but take significantly longer to fail.

That's what I wa thinking. If the OP cannot check the oil themselves, I'd have someone else check the car other than the dealer who did the oil change. That way they can't cover up that they forgot...

That's in the manual? Good to know. Not sure how I missed that. I would have torn the calipers apart. May still have to if the pads significantly rusted onto the rotors.

It's nice to hear not all experiences are bad, but for the money we spend on these cars, we should not have anyone having a bad dealer experience. Still a crapshoot and I'm still gonna change my own...

Remove front plate or bra if you have either on. Someone mentioned short shifting at 5k. Don't forget to swap the oil for 15w-50. Maybe try a 160-170 degree thermostat. Lower stat might buy you a...

This. Not a fan of frames, and the car has too may logos on it already.

BTW, anyone ever count the logos on a Bandit era Trans Am? If that car had 10 HP for every logo.... it would have about the...

I've never checked out the ebrake setup, but I figured it's a similar mechanism as a hand brake with a motor attached. You might have to get handy and take the rear brakes apart. Then put the wheels...

Personally I'm very thankful that someone brought this up. I think the next article should be about the automatic 8 speed VS the Manual 7 speed. Maybe do a Z51 vs base, and perhaps a Grand Sport VS...

I've repeatedly taken turn 1-2 at Iowa speedway at over 1G sustained in my wet sump with Northland 5w-30 dexos approved Synthetic. Yup, I don't use Mobile One. Engine was happy. That's probably 4-5...

I have to ask how study it is to begin with if a chunk of concrete small enough to pass under the front of the car was enough to crack it, but I am not expert. Seems like it should be able to take...

I always put the vert top up if I'm not using it for more than a couple hours. I figure it keeps it less wrinkly, and maybe preserve some of that new car smell. I generally put it up while out and...
