Your Vette appears to be really sad that one of his brothers brought shame to all C6 by losing a race to a Ford Mustang.

New fog lights? Haven't looked any farther, so someone else may have picked up on that.

Yea, the pic is deceiving, taken in the bright Florida sun with an old iPhone6S. The cyber grey hides a lot too.

Front splitter is off, I removed it due to a very fast armadillo bouncing off it during the early am while going to work. It knocked a few clips loose, so I took it off to figure out how to repair the plastic.

But I figured I'd try the performance handling with it off, and so far it has been very similar, meaning no weird "floating", etc., even at high triple digit speeds. And for the safety folks out here, I gradually worked up to it, did not do it in traffic, etc. I've also been caught in a couple strong T-storm crosswinds, and it is no noticeable difference there either. The front end also clears parking curbs much better

I do plan on putting it back on, but hope this makes folks feel better that their car won't become a Prius if the front spoiler is off while driving.

The funny thing is, NO ONE has noticed it, even my friends that have corvettes. It's a daily driver too, and has been off about a month. But once you do, it's like that small scratch, you keep noticing it.......

Yea, I occasionally try to put smiles back on our Vette brothers and sisters faces

Back from the track

When I had a set of Cooper tires on it, I could easily light them up at 35-40 mph by shifting to 2nd. While driving home one day, I had a Hellcat pull up beside me in Daytona (when they first came out) and wanted to race at the next red light. I said "hold on, let me warm my tires up", and proceeded to smoke them for a couple seconds while doing about 40 mph. I had also opened up the NPP (and I have headers) so it ROARED. When we stopped at the light and I grinned at him, he just laughed and turned right

The power bluff has also worked on Mustangs too

I have a take-off splitter for you. It isn't perfect but it's decent. My family is coming up here next weekend. I can send it back down with them. You'll just have to go over to Palm Coast to grab it. Yours if you want it.

Seeing this and with your feedback...I may take mine off. It scrapes on my driveway fairly often unless I hit it at juuust the right angle. So rather than wonder if my splitter is going to get ripped off, I may just beat it to the punch!

Yea, it's easy to take off, you just need to lay on your back for a few minutes with a small socket or wrench. There's several small screws around the edges, I would do the outer ones first, and work my way to the middle, but it's just personal preference. I would also feel the tightness of the metal clips that the screws go thru, and remove them if they are loose (so that you don't lose them later). And, if you don't like the look, you can clean it up and reinstall it just as easily.

Looks like you dipped the front fascia in hot wax about 10 times... so the Wick is missing.
