Can you guys give us C5 owners a little insight?

How do you like the C6 now that you've had it for a while?

Any leaks when you wash the car?

Anything you would have designed differently? Ergonomics/style-wise

Antything that really bugs you about the car?

This is the time to nit-pick... so let it all out.

On a scale of 1-10, 1 being Very Dissatisfied and 10 being Very Satisfied - how would you grade the car's overall owning experience??

I don't conduct focus groups... I'm just interested in hearing what real car guys have to say about the C6.

Thanks for sharing,
Alex

The more I drive it, the more I love it. I love everything about this car. It's a definite 10 for me. Ride, comfort, performance (love the additional torque), creature comforts. It's got it all. I love this car.

So far I haven't had a problem with the car. I think I have 4000 on the clock.

I've had mine since late August and I love it. I installed a corsa sport exhaust and I find myself finding even more excuses than usual to drive it just to hear the exhaust note. The car is very tight!

They Love, but that's because they cant see the exterior from the inside :lol: :lol: :lol:

























Just joking, :pp: :D , I heard one the other day, and it was really quiet, Is it that much quieter then a regular c5, usually more Cubes quiets things down considering the power ! :thumb: :thumb:

To be honest, when I walk out of the store and see my car in the parking lot Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out at the end of the parking lot, I just love it. I just smile ear to ear. :D

So compare it to your TR Z06 Norm! :yeadog:
I really loved my Z. It is wicked. Matter of fact, I may be getting another one to sit along side my 06 Z. As far as looks, I like the C6 a little better. Only because it is new and different. I love the headlites. I think it just sets it off. One of my friends put it this way. She said "When I see that car driving up, it looks so exotic" :)

I like my C6 better than my Z in almost every category. I think the Z had the edge on high rpm power. That is the one place where my Z had the edge. Then again, it had a BW and SLP bellows that added 14 RWHP and my C6 is bone stock. The torque on the C6 with the Z51 makes it pull like a freight train down low. It is such a joy to drive.

Anything else you would like to know? ;)

Here's a hint. Every answer but one has been answered correctly. ;)

I Hope you're not talking about my answer, because I was jost joking, actually I was making fun of the people that say its ugly ect, I was saying something mocking them, Actually I love the way they look, and like any car, pictures does no justice, and like any car standing still does no justice either, You never know how good your car looks til you see someone else drive it down the road :guiness:

I can't answer that, I have never driven it in the rain. However, I use a power washed at my house and I have never found any water in the car.

Have 3,100 miles on my C5 and have no problems/complains...completely satisfied. No water leaks at the u-washee. Especially like the water off design on the trunk lid, (they designed a channel along the perimeter of the trunk edge that channels water to the ground instead of inside your trunk.

Handling, comfort, power: excellent! :cheers:

Tony meant to say "C6". Those retired guys don't even remember what day it is. :rofl:
