: A Couple of Questions and Pictures from a New V Owner

12-24-06, 08:56 AM
Hello all,
First off, let me thank everyone on this forum for the information. I lurked here for almost 6-months before finding my car. It was somewhat unexpected how I bought it though. My truck broke down, I walked into a dealership the next day, and made a great deal on an 800 mile '05 (less than $34,000!).

Pictures of the weekend car and daily driver are attached. The V is stock for now. The vette is not so stock.

I have afew questions concerning the V. Has anyone retrofitted the '06 turn signal stalk and the right side volume control buttons to an '04 or '05. I would really like to do this.

There was a link I found on this site at one time to a place that had the painted sport spoilers for about $270. Anyone purchase this spoiler for this price? If so, where?

What is the best ipod adapter for our cars? Does anyone have experience with more than one? I am looking for playlist ability and the best compatibility.

Where is the best place for chrome wheel exchange? Alternately, is there anyone who sells the optional 10-spoke polished wheels for cheap?

Is the C5 the special edition? Looks like the color they had only that year on my screen. Cool - now you have a 2 door 'vette and a 4 door 'vette too!

Can't help you with you questions, but congrats on the new ride. My garage also has a C5 Vette (02 Z06) and a CTS-V in it. :cheers:

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the christmas present :highfive:

I think the special edition you are referring to was the 2003 50th Anniversary Edition. His Corvette is not the AE, and it's not a 2003, the emblem on the nose is different. I would guess it is Magnetic Red.

Here's a picture of a few of them
