Hey all,

Jumped on an already-placed order to get my Z06, and couldn't change the build sheet since the car already had a TPW. The car was being built with BSM's. I figured I'd just remove them when the car came in...

Now I'm not so sure! Must be the Z06 wheels, but the BSM's (which I never liked on the base C5) work on the Z06! That's not to say that I won't take the BSM's off sometime, but seeing the car with them has delayed that decision.

Anyone else here have "second thoughts" about removing the BSM's? I kinda like 'em now! Who knows. /ubb/smilies/smile.gif

This ISN'T a "what should I do?" post -- rather, just wondering if anyone felt as I do about this (specific to the Z06)...

I have considered removing the BSM's on my Z but have decided to keep them for now. I really don't think, JMHO, that they look that bad. The wife wants hers left on.

I like 'em too. Was a tough decision at first, but now that I have them for a while I wouldn't have it any other way. MY .02. /ubb/smilies/smile.gif

I ordered my QS Z with them because the FRC in that color looks better with them then without them. I doubt I would ever change my mind on the subject. To each his own! Regardless, it's great that Corvette offers a choice!

I took mine off about a month ago. Whenever I see a Vette with the BSM's, my attention is instantly focused on them instead of the fantastic sculpturing of the cove and the door. They look ok, but I prefer the look of the Vette without them.

I ordered mine with BSM's, and they will stay on. I think the vette looks much more aggresive with them. Just what I prefer for my Z06. /ubb/smilies/biggrin.gif

Mr. Meloney:

I agree with you 100%
I have never liked the bsm on other C5's, but am starting to change my mind after seeing them on the Z.

I agree with CorvetteSS, the BSM's draw your attention away from the brake intakes. You look at the car first, not the intakes. Thats why I had to have them. /ubb/smilies/smile.gif

Hope to Z you soon

You just blinded me with that shine./ubb/smilies/biggrin.gif

The only thing that shines like that for me is my forehead. QS looks good but Black is all that and a bag of chips.
