2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)

Review

I bought the Z51 package in order to get the very "best" vette possible. However, unless you plan to race this car (on a race track) or live where the roads are perfect, consider the magnetic suspension. The Z51 is simply too harsh for midwestern roads. Buy the skip shift bypass from one of the aftermarket sites - that feature is annoying at best, dangerous at worst. The car is tremendous fun on the right roads, and is a real head- turner, though it is a handful on rough secondary roads. It is a super- bargain, but there is a trade-off in refinement. If you can afford it, check out a Boxster S or M3 before you buy.

Best Features

Tremendous thrust at any rpm, in any gear; keyless ignition and doors; head- up display; fit and finish worthy of European cars; excellent seats, driving position.

Worst Features

Offer the cross-drilled brakes as separate option. Delete the skip shift. Offer parking sensors and side mirrors than turn down in reverse - visability in back is very limited.
