Wow!!! This car really is special. I have owned an driven a number of performance vehicles and the 02 Z06 is clearly in a class by itself. 89 and 94 Vettes, 97M3, 99 911,to name a few. I am trying to stick to the 500 mile break-in so I havn't really opened her up yet but I can tell the power is going to be insane!!!! The exhaust note is absolute purrrrrfection. (a guy up the block has a Viper and the rumble is very similar!! Awesome. The handling, truly remarkable. My bride asked me how I could go through 2 rolls of parkway tokens in 2 nights. Entrance/exit ramps and 0-70 starts at the tolls BABY!!!! So much fun!!!! Remember, she is still in the break-in so no WOT yet. My brother came with me to pick up the car and he asked a very interesting question. He said you have been waiting for months, reading every article, considering other cars (M3,911, 01 Viper,M5, 01 Z06) and you finally have it. "So is the car better or worse than you thought it was going to be after the first few days?" I honestly can say, it has exceeded every possible expectation that I had for this car. The clutch is smooth. The radio is better than I thought it was going to be. The Quicksilver paint is bright and flawless. The HUD feature is very helpful. I could go on and on. Picked her up from Kerbeck Monday night and they told me I was the first 02 Z06 to leave the lot. I was a little surprised considering they claim to be the biggest dealer in the country. The dealer was great. I was even given a silver Maisto Z06 model car. When I picked up my car there was a 550 Maranello Ferrari sitting next to my Z06. Turns out its the owners car. He saw my brother and I making comparisons so he comes out and proceeds to tell us that his car is great but this new Z06 will out perform his $250,000 toy in every category. How cool is that??? I Love my car.. Thanks to everybody on the forum for listening. Let the mods begin. HRE's on the way, crossed drilled rotors and Donaldson blackwing will be installed on tues. I have photos and I have downloaded them on my computer but I do not know who to add them to a post.
