The dealer should be able to pull the maintenance records for you (assuming they were done at a GM dealer). That should at least give you some idea of what services were done on it. You can never...

The 17xxxx doesn't mean 2017. That would mean they could only make 9,999 cars at a given plant before running out of VINs. That's just the sequence number according to the plant. There are other...

Actually, I don't think you can even tell that from your VIN. The plant produces several different vehicles. You'd need to know the VIN of the very first 2017 vehicle to come out of the plant in...

LOL! After my 5th Gen experience on the track, the brake fluid swap was the first thing I did when I got the ZL1. Now I'm considering a stickier track tire on my spare wheels to see how those do...

Definitely worth a check. The trans has to be brought up to temp and then checked hot. There were a couple instances of cars on tracks having issues due to this. If you never push your car you'd...

The first A10s off the line were in the range of 186xxx. Cars built a month later were in the 192xxx range. So I would say roughly your car was built in late March or early April.

Pretty much the same situation here. 3 track days, 2 autocross days and ~4,000 miles. So far I'm very happy with it. Early ones had the overfill potential from the factory, but that's all been...

We don't know the exact sequencing, but we the first cars that were built. Generally you can tell when you line up from those. What's your VIN?

There were CTF cars that were produced before the actual first week of production. Some end up being put up for sale. So yes, there are cars before the ones produced the week of 2/6.

M6s started production before the A10s. First week of production for the A10s was 2/6/17 and the first VIN was somewhere around 18602x. So any 2017 M6 produced before 2/6 would have a lower VIN...

Unfortunately with the 6th gens it doesn't really work that way. There are multiple car styles that come out of the plant so the Camaro numbering isn't sequential. We have more information on the...

Congratulations on the car. You won't be disappointed. I learned to drive on a manual and had one ever since. The A10 is so good you won't miss the manual.

My guess is that the bracing that's in place and ties to the firewall is all that GM felt was needed.

Very curious to see if anyone can offer up driving experiences with and without the brace. Meaning, on the ZL1, how much of a difference does this actually make?

Couldn't agree more. Lots of talk of people going to other tires but I'm super impressed with these. Only thing I'd consider right now is trying a set of R888r or similar focused on track use.
