Hey not to crash the party, but let's start hearing about these newest C6's.

Where's all the feedback? The energy level on this forum needs the little blue pill. At least that's what I hear those pills are good for.

i've had my Silver C6 coupe for about3 weeks now, and rate it an 11 on a 1-to-10 scale!

The car rides smooth, is much quieter inside, fast, and holds the road like super glue.

I have NAV, XM radio, 1SB pkg, Z51 suspension, auto trans, with perf axle ratio, and standard wheels.

Had it up to 111 mph, and it was rock steady..more to come.

Previous Vette include: '94 ZR1, Two Z06's, and two C5 converts, all with manual trans.

The NAV system is fantastic! I'm still learning some of it's features and options, but so far I'm really impressed.

If you have any specific questions, ask away!

The C6 is my favorite of the 8 Vettes I've owned. |thumb| |thumb| |thumb| |thumb| |thumb| |thumb|

Dale: Congrats on your new Vette! What city do live in?

The key less system is great....You just carry the electronic key fob in your picket, and as you approach your car the electronic signal is recognized and your door unlocks. Sit behind the wheel, and push the button on the dash...car starts. After parking it, you push the button to stop the engine. Simple & easy.

If you have specific questions on/about the C6, ask away.

I went to the dealer Saturday for my first look. Since I received a ticket for no front tag on my C5, my question was where do you put one on the the C6. Chevrolet should have put more thought on the front tag location. The bracket is glued to the front of the car above the grill opening. I don't have to tell you what that looks like. I think I'll keep my C5

Beautiful! Now where hearing it!!

Regarding the third brake light black surround piece. As you know they started selling this peice in the Parts Dept.

Any guesses that at some point GM will either integrate this in the molding process within the rear bumper section or just install it as seperate(like it is now) but, in the same body color at the plant during the build process.

Hi guys If you want some feedback, heres mine. I picked my yellow c6 nav 1sb polished wheels, casmere interior, xm, clear top monday in alabama. I live in michigan.
What a car. I have 1250 miles on it now. Friday when i drove home the car got 27 mpg. The car is tight, fast and draws way to much attention. The sound of the engine running at 70 mph is none existent, tach reads 2100 rpm.
I have 3.15 rear axle. I found no orange peel, body fit is excellent, looks as good as any car on the road, inside fit,feel and layout is excellent. I have noticed
that the right side of dash board does not line up perfectly with the side door panel. Wednseday i toured corvette plant in bowling green and talked to a repair tech about that fit issue. He told me the engineers were working on a fix for that. Be sides that the car is absolutely wonderful. No regrets about buying it. i work for gm so paying msrp kind of sucks but what are you going to do. Since I live in michigan i only have another 30 days to drive it before i park it for the winter. Hi zippy, i live about 40 miles north of you.

My Silver C6 will be 5 weeks old on Tuesday and I like it more every day. I have about 1500 miles with about 600 of them on Interstates when I left for one of the hurricanes which were headed my way. My only real complaint is that the hatch does not close the way I saw David Hill close it on the Discovery Channel program the other day. I can get it to work OK if a door is open or a window is open, but if everything is closed it has to be slammed instesd of just lowered as pictured in the video. There ought to be some way to relieve the air pressue which would allow it to operate correctly.

They could use an automatic system like I remember an old
Cadillac having. But probably not allowed in these times
as it would maybe sheer a childs finger off. (There those

I picked up my machine silver coupe last Wednesday, and drove it 2000 miles over the weekend - a round-trip from Dallas to Chicago. This car is definitely a 10! I've got the auto trans with the standard suspension, the 3.15 performance rear axle and polished-forged wheels. I also got the 1SB and all of the interior stuff . . . XM, Sound/Navigation, OnStar.

Drives great! I was impressed with the comparative quiteness of the car vs. C5's I've been in. Nice ride - certainly smooth enough for a luxury sports car, and I think as good as any car in this class. Great acceleration! Once I got past a reasonable 1,000 mile break in, I had the chance to take it up to 120 mph on an open, dry and wide stretch of highway. Acceleration from 80 to 120 was amazing, it seemed like a couple of seconds. Between 100 and 120, I felt like the car was just getting into its comfort zone. Stable and confident.

Problem is, at 120 the engine was just hitting 3400 rpm. What's a guy to do with the remaining 3000 rpm? Where can you take this car and really drive it?

To me, a couple of noteable things were that the seats were very comfortable, a definite improvement on the C5, and that the electronics (sound, navigation, etc.) are fabulous on a road trip. I played with the voice command system, and realize that when you learn to use this feature, it is more than a toy. Voice command is a great idea as you can keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. |bouncy|

The location of the front plate has concerned me too, but I found an alternative on EBay. I bid on one and plan to give it a try. Anyway, the copy reads:

"2005 C6 Alternate Front License Plate Bracket

This is the answer to the C6 License Plate problem. If you don't want to mount the License Plate on the top of the nose, this is the option for you. This has been designed to mount on the lower bumper. You can use double back tape, screws that will be unseen, or even Velcro. I have one on my car, everyone likes it much better than the stock one. Done let the dealer put the plate on!!!

This is built of Aluminum, and does not touch any surface of the lower bumper. It has rubber molding on under the top and behind the front of the unit. Patent Pending."

i picked up my precision red coupelast thursday it has the cashmere interior, navigation and xm. on star. still learning some of the tricks it can do for example the vocal command for the navigation system also will change the radio from fm to xm to am etc. simply by telling it what band you want it on . i also just found out the navigation system can also be directed by entering a phone # instead of an address.wonder what else it can do.it's getting so i can't wait to get up and drive to work each day. |eek|

Zippy....my comments are very much like yours....I have about 550 miles....all the positive things...lots of great stuuf. C6 is a blast.

BUT...let's look at the downsides too....Have any of you C6 owners with POLISHED WHEELS observed the very poor finish of the wheels?

The Polished Wheels on Two-of-Two new C6s (including mine) at my Dealer yesterday have a very inconsistent and "dull" look, with many areas, in the rim surround mostly (some spokes too), with what appears to be a lousy clearcoat in addition to over-buffed / scuff marks now preserved by the clearcoat! Not a pretty picture at all.

And, it's a $2,000 option here (RPO QG7).

When looking over several 3-4 year old C5s in at the dealer for service, their Polished Wheels all LOOKED close to Chrome finish (very nice)...and they were not chrome....just were truly bright as the polished wheels SHOULD be.

Anybody seen / heard of C6 Polished Wheel FINISH problems? It's not very classy on these C6 cars here!
(VINs up to ...103000).

Hmmm...

I took a look at my polished wheels, and think they look pretty nice. Not chrome for sure, but they have a nice "high quality" look to them. I looked at an exchange program for chrome wheels, and decided to stick with the ones I've got.

For those of us who are looking for a more subdued look, the polished wheels fit.

Listening to all you guys talk about your C6's is killing me. I ordered a yellow 1SB 6Spd Z51 3 weeks ago. It was origionally scheduled for production 10/5 but that was pushed back a week. I hope to see it by the end of the month???? Having read all your comments I'm even more anxious to drive it.

As I asked everyone (above) on Oct 10th...when you look at your C6 Polished Wheels CLOSELY, what is your opinion of the finish? Then, compare that to the C5 polished wheels. |ohwell|

Thanks for the encouraging words. I saw a yellow coupe similar to what I ordered parked at my gym this morning. I almost drove into a curb looking at it.

I can't wait to get mine. I looked carefully at the polished wheels and they looked fine to me???

Thanks,
Mark

Mark, any idea what the VIN range is on this C6? And, you have to really look up close and personal to see the imperfections and flaws in the Polished Wheels.

Having read the concerns of some regarding the "High Polished Forged Steel Wheels", I took some pics of one of the wheels on my C6 and posted them on website.

That link is: http://198.104.191.250/C6Wheels.htm

I think mine look great. Sure, if I take a magnifying glass to a couple of the edges, I can see some very small porosity or inclusions - but nothing visible without extremely close inspection.

Having worked in the metals business for 30+ years, I know first-hand that anytime you take the outer skin off any casting or forging, that is anytime you polish any casting or forging, you will reveal microscopic porosity to one extent or another.

Perhaps some of those who have voiced a complaint have wheels that don't look as great as mine do?? |cheers|

The pics are excellent, and it sure appears from viewing your site that your C6 Polished Wheels are good quality, although the naked eye beats all...but your long metals experience indicates that your wheels are most acceptable, certainly to your standards. Is it a "recent-build" C6?

A key in all this is the VIN range. Our Dealer's Service Manager and 30-year Body Shop Manager saw several very poor finish Polished Wheels in VIN 100500 to 103000.

Where does your C6 fit in this?

My VIN ends with 102853, which is toward the end of the range you mentioned. I'm not certain of the build date as I misplaced the window sticker.

One thing is for sure, and that is that forged wheels should have a dense grain structure and very minimal porosity. Cast wheels will have more porosity because of gases that are present in the metal, also shrinkage porosity and perhaps some sub-surface inclusions. So, with these C6 polished wheels, people should be seeing a mirror-like surface, and one that holds its luster for a long time.

While my wheels do look good, it appears that some haven't been so lucky.

I've got to say that driving a C6 for three weeks now has been a real gas! A lot of you guys have had several sports cars, but with six kids I've always had to take into account having a vehicle that also serves as a kid taxi.

My last car was a compromise between a sports car and a family vehicle. It was a Lincoln LS V8 Sport - 284HP and some kick. It was also a fun car to drive but really no comparison to the C6.

Finally, I got to the point where I could buy a car just for me, and I'm really glad I chose the new Corvette.

It puts a smile on my face everytime I push the start button. It puts a smile on my face everytime I come out of a store and see it in the parking lot. And, it puts a smile on my face everytime I roar past someone on the freeway.

What more could you ask for?

I didn't look at the VIN to see when the polished wheel cars I saw were built.

I just received word that my C6 (with polished wheels) will be ready for delivery this Saturday. I can't wait. I'll report back on the wheels after I get it.

As for Conv production start date I was told it will be in December.

Thanks,
Mark

It has arrived. The polshed wheels look great. I drive my C6 home from the Jersey shore yesterday. This monster pulls better than a big block. I can't believe how well this car does everything!

...what's the VIN range now? (as of Oct. 23 delivery)

Please look at your Polished wheels very closely, and check for inconsistencies, cloudy shapes, less than stellar polishing/buffing. Appreciated....

The last 6 of my VIN are 105310. I looked over the wheels closely today and compared to a friends on his 2003 and they look about the same. Mine may be a bit duller but the overall finish is consistant with no cloudy areas.

I am happy with my C6 in everything except the wheel finish. The navigation system worked flawlessly over a weekend trip to Charlotte, love the head up display messages and audio prompts where to turn, etc. XM radio is a nice option and I rarely use the CD player. Mine has Magnetic selective ride control, but doesn't seem to change the ride much from stock. It is a better car that any of my 3 previous C5s, but I wish I had dual tops for the coupe. I have a glass top that gets hot under the sun, so I have to order a standard top from the dealer and have it painted to match the Daytona Orange Sunset metallic. I have 1600 miles on it, have had it up to 105mph and is steady as a rock. I love this car better than my C5s, and rate it 9/10 due to the wheels.

Picked up my c6 Silver, 1SB, MSRC, NAV, Auto, Polished Wheels, Trans Top, 10/23/2004. Had 4 miles on it. Last 4 #'s of VIN 5802.

Seems to be very quite - much quiter than my c5 - and very well built. Ride seems to be improved too.

Wife is just elated with cup holders, air-conditioner outlets, door pocket holders and passenger room.

I have a question... When does the memory function kick in? On the C5 the adjustments take place when ya put the key in the ignition and obviously that won't work, huh?

As an aside, convertible production must be starting, my coupe build date just slipped three weeks |frown|

The memory function is fob dependent. The key fob identifies you to the car and initiates all of the memory functions. Mine is a one-driver car, with all my settings made with fob 1. I accidentally grabbed fob 2 one day and found out that the car didn't recognize me at all - including all of the radio presets. When I went and got fob 1, all of my settings - seat, steering wheel, mirrors and radio presets reappeared.

Sorry, forgot to add that the memory functions kick in when you push the start button.

<<They could use an automatic system like I remember an old Cadillac having. But probably not allowed in these times as it would maybe sheer a childs finger off. >>

Those pneumatic closure devices are on many, many vehicles nowadays ... including minivans ... which use them to automatically raise and lower the entire rear lift gate. I never thought about using that on the hatch ... maybe it was considered ... I would imagine space and weight would be a concern.

Had to delete a reply from happy. He must have missed a | somewhere in the QUOTE tag. Here is the text of his post:

Not much wrong may just be the answer!  At this point I'm trying to make the decision of whether or not should I get into a new C7 or put money into my C6 Grand Sport to bump the horsepower and maybe a little suspension work.  Spend the money on a new C7 or the C6?  Embarrassed
