    2012 GS

    Congrats on your new Corvette! I've also got a 2012 GS in Velocity Yellow (avatar pic). Mine is a 2LT trim with the Dual roof and dual mode exhaust. As far as I know, the dual mode function is supposed to be automatic. If you notice, it's louder for a few seconds when you first start the car...

    The corvette c6 and the c6 grand sport

    Besides the wide body factory flares and wider rims/tires, the Grand Sport upgrade has pretty much the Z51 suspension package. It's like a Z06 without the big 505 HP LS7 motor. The Automatic transmission version that I have doesn't have the dry sump or the hand built motor that the manual...

    Aftermarket Stereo

    I'm digging this thread up from the dead to see if there's anyone else that has explored upgrading the sound system in their C6? For some background, I've been in the consumer electronics industry selling higher end audio/video products for over 30 years. I've always loved music and liked high...

    Show off your C6's!!

    New to me 2012 2LT C6 Grand Sport. It's relatively low mileage at about 12,500 miles and appears to have been babied. One owner (before Carvana) and clean Carfax. It's going to replace the 67K mile 2013 2LT black one in the background that's never seen the inside of a garage. The black one was...

    The corvette C6

    As much as I was thinking I might upgrade my C6 to a C7 now that the C8s are real, I came across a deal I couldn't pass up on another C6. When I bought my first C6 I was not sure if I'd really take to driving a Corvette having never had a sports car before. I joked that it would either be a six...

    The corvette C6

    I would love a C8 and probably will upgrade to a C7 at some time as it's a better built automobile than my C6, but I think the C6 is one of the best looking American built cars ever built. To my eye, the C6 is iconic and really exemplifies when the Corvette really stepped onto the world stage...

    New" headlights

    That's awesome. I'd love to find something like that. My 2013that I bought last year appears to have lived outside, which it still does as I don't really have a garage and really needs new headlights. As I don't have a place to garage it, tearing the front end apart and leaving it that way while...

    How old is the "average" C6 buyer?

    57 here. I got a 2013 2LT in black for my 57th Birthday. It is my first sports car, but likely not my last. Even if it is, it's a hell of a ride for a guy that's been driving SUVs for the last 25 years. I still have my 2017 Honda Pilot Touring AWD, which is a super competent vehicle within it's...

    OEM Repacement Upper Leather Seat Covers?

    As I understand it, for most of the C6's run, there was a lot of complaints that there was inadequate support in the seats for sporty driving, specifically the lateral seat bolsters. My searching seems to indicate that this was addressed in the 2012 & 2013 models. One of the few visible wear...

    California - Front License Plate Requirement & Mount?

    In Cali where I live, the vehicle code seems to require a front license plate, although the used C6 I bought from a Toyota didn't come with one and there's no mount for one on the front of my car. So far, I've seen a couple of police officers but haven't been pulled over for it. I am concerned...

    New To The corvette Community

    Congratulations! I bought mine on my Birthday on the 1st of June (57), so I've had it a month now. I got the registration in the mail last night. Just waiting for the title. I took my wife out to Malibu for lunch today. Top stowed, so semi vert mode. Beautiful winding roads to the beach with...

    Question: Aftermarket Radio Install

    I'll ask them that when I'm in as well. Mine has what looks like a stock microphone that's mounted near the top of the driver's side A pillar. I know the hands free works with the replacement Kenwood. I usually use a Plantronics BT headset for better sound quality on the other end of the call as...

    Question: Aftermarket Radio Install

    That's a good question. I want to add the optional XM receiver to my system later this week. I'll let you know what the shop says.

    New To The corvette Community

    I've wanted a sports car for a fair number of years, but there have always been other, more responsible things to spend money on. I'm an outsides sales rep and spend a lot of time on the road in an SUV (Honda Pilot these days) as that form factor works really well for work for me. As you can...

    Question: Aftermarket Radio Install

    I recently bought a 2013 C6 Coupe with an aftermarket sound system in it. To be honest, that almost stopped me from buying the car, but after inspecting the install and quality of components used (used to work in that business years ago), I bought it anyway. It's got a Kenwood head unit in it...
