Are there any items (standard equipment or extra cost options) that you feel are not necessary and could do without?

Ok, I'll be first...dual zone temp control. Dual zone control in a two seat car? Hello?

Memory is another one I think could be eliminated.

Twilight Sentinel, falls in the same category as memory...nice on a Cadillac, but I think Vet owners know enough to turn their lights on at night.

How about you?

Wow,

I always think of this question from the opposite point of view; what options I don't have that I want.

Rather than wait I grabbed the first Z06 available on the lot. I would have taken all the options if it had them. What I miss though is the memory seat option and the monochromatic mirrors.

I hate having to re-adjust the seat. As HarleyB mentioned you can never get it back just right after another driver. Dual Zone heating is great also. I can adjust the heat/AC to my taste and the passenger then can modify their zone to suit them if needed.

BSMs? I like them and added them after purchase. However, I could live without them just as easily.

BSMs. I can live w/o them and I am living w/o them. Car looks cleaner w/o them, IMHO. I have all the other options and like them all.

I could, however, probably live w/o the front license plate frame, but I don't think the state of Maryland would let me.

No... I had twilight sentinel on a 99 vert that I bought after someone turned it down, therefore I didn't have a choice on that individual option. I should have made my original post clearer, I meant on the regular Vet models.

I like both Memory & Dual Zone. I have had them in my Jeep GC for 2 years. I like the A/C on, wife wants the heat on. I am almost a foot taller, and after my wife takes the car, I could never get the seat back to the exact same way I had it. And just try telling her she can't drive the Z. This same argument almost caused a divorce with my last Vette. (That is ONE option I CAN'T afford!!!)

HarleyB (the twilight sentinal I agree is worthless)

I'm with you Harley! At least we know who "rules" the roost!
I definitly couldn't afford the "D" option - the wife is an attorney!

As for the car options, my wife was always closing the vents on her side of the car because she was cold... I'll keep the "dual" system..

As for the memory option, I'm the only that drives it so I could have done without it. It was part of the allocation and the dealer told me that once a TPW is "set", you can't change the options. No biggie.... doesn't cost much anyway.
