Not at all. My IOM was moderately modded and so far there is still nothing the ZL1 can't do much better than it did performance or comfort-wise. Plus the peace of mind in knowing the car was deigned around the features help as well.
1. I was able to afford it comfortably
2. The wife gave the green light
3. You only live once

The break-in is killing me though!!!!

Cool Follow that break in.

Watch all the videos on here and youtube.
If No One told you at the dealer there is a complete series of these you need to watch
I learned ALOT
and I've owned every corvette there is.

The only thing i have to tell you is 4000 rpm 60 mph
for 1500 of the longest miles you will ever drive sir.

But its worth it to protect the ride.

Congrats! You will not regret it, I did something similar and also got the green light from the wife.

You're gonna want to pull fuse F8 from the fuse block on the passenger's side of your trunk and keep,the dual mode exhaust flaps open all the time for an awesome exhaust note.

Watch out for the damn Hill Assist if its a manual, it's an option that sucks and you can't not disable it. We are working on GM to give us that option.

The break in period is just so you don't kill yourself until you get used to the car and all it power and extreme handling. Just remember we are on the same roads, so track it tot the track to see her really perform.

Welcome to the club and enjoy.

Not really because I love the AGM color. My wife is having a hard time adjusting though....she keeps looking for an orange car in the garage
