I picked up an 08 Atomic Metallic Orange Vette for 3500 under sticker today to replace my V which I am turning in as my lease has come to an end.
The Vette drives great and looks fantastic.

I have the V upgrade polished rims, Corsa cat back and LPE cold air kit on my V if anyone in the Phoenix area wants to buy them off me, PM me if you are local and want to discuss it. In three weeks I will turn the car in to the dealer.
Thanks.

Flyboy's in your area ... and he's loaded.

Thanks, I like the Vette but it is not as stealthy as the V.
I can leave the items on the car when I turn it in (except the LPE), I just figured someone would like the parts. The car only has 24K on it and it is like new, it is going to be a hell of a buy on the used lot.

DK,
Good decision staying with GM. The LS3 is a beast, dyno numbers prove that GM understated the HP, and with a tune, CAI and headers you will make close to 430-440RWHP, which is almost C6Z territory.
Enjoy your C6!

Thanks; I am still in the Cadillac family as we have the wife's SRX.
I have heard the same about the LS3 but I will wait a few thousand miles before modding her.
I like it here and I will remain on this forum though as I enjoy the sensibility of most owners here.
Take care

I guess there's no way you'd be willing to ship huh?

I want those polished rims. Do you have extras, or are those your only set?

Did you get the optional exhaust driving the HP to 436? You will love the car.

(j/k Those wheels look really nice on a black V!)

I do not have extras, swapping with the stockers would have to be part of the deal.
I leased the car with the standard V wheels and then put the optional ones on, so as long as I turn it in with the standard wheels and decent tread is all that matters. I have Nittos on them (wider in the rear) with maybe 8K miles on them. The exhaust is the same situation.
I figured why give them to GM.

It was not on the car but I am going to do my research on aftermarket and if the GM exhaust is the best choice I will put it on.

If you dislike your neighbors, go with the B&B Bullets, X-pipe and Kooks headers (the Vararam CAI seems to be worth the $350, too), as it will shake the ground.

But I accidentally put a few cabbage leaves on this little biscuit....

The C6 is a monster. I had a C5 and it was a great, fun loving car. The C6 feels like a weapon when you drive it - it's just stunning. Enjoy. Just watch out for the NEW CTS-V...it might give you a run for your money unless you mod that 'vette.

Enjoy the Corvette! They are great cars. I have a C5 and had planned to buy a C6 convertible when I sold my C4 convertible. I bought the CTS-V instead....variety is a good thing. :)

I know the new V will be great, who knows maybe in '09 or '10 I will get one, especially if a coupe is available.

I will most likely do an intake (Verraram), exhaust and tune; I had these three mods on the V and loved them.

Thanks, I think variety is great. By the way I love the Vette in Medium Spiral Gray. I was looking at used 03 and 04s in that color.

Damn, ok, thanks. I don't have an extra set of stockers lying around. :(

The LPE is sold. If there are any Phoenix area Vs that want to switch their Stock exhaust for my Corsa exhaust or their rims with my polished optional V rims, It would be a very cheap way to get these items.
Let me know as I plan to turn the car in early to get it out of my garage.
Take care.

Sorry, they would look great on your black car, that is what mine is.
