Ordering my ZL1, quick question....

I'm about to order my ZL1 this week in victory red. I'm unsure about the ECF though. Ideally, I want a flat black insert but I know I have to decide between the ECF or the AGM insert. What are your thoughts about either one with the victory red and black wheels? Does anyone have pictures of the AGM insert on a red car?

If ECF is available, get it. It's a cool option. Aside from the few quality complaints that have been reported on the forum, I'm sure most are up to standard.

The AGM insert does a good job of emulating the "grayish" light reflection of flat black with the added benefit of being able to wax/polish it without ruining it. At the angles most people will see your car from, they will not be able to tell the difference.

The CF hood is going to be a option later on people will want, just look what people want at the auctions. More options the better, but it needs to be born with it from the factory.
I am wondering how the exposed CFH can withstand the sun? Aircraft CF must be painted white, but that is structural.

My dealer just got his allocation for my ZL1 vert on Friday. He advised the ECF was on constraint, so I told him to skip it to get my order going. I will be having them paint it flat black before it leaves the dealership. My colors will be CRT with black wheels and black top and black interior. I don't think the gray heat extractor would look right.

Does anyone know how long the ECF will be on constraint for?

I'm curious if it is actually on constraint or not.

Ashen Gray Metallic is so dark its often difficult to distinguish it from black however I wish (and wouldn't be surprised if they eventually do) GM used Carbon Flash Metallic for the insert.

I have had more than a handful of people mistake my color (AGM) for black, looking at it from the dark side or at night.

I could go either way. If I were ordering one, I'd probably order it with the painted insert though.

I'm thinking I'll order with the AGM insert and either have it painted or try to locate an ECF insert in the future.

Does anyone have a pic of the AGM insert with the stripe pkg? I received a call from my dealer that ECF is on constraint so i changed order to AGM. I am now reconsidering the stripe pkg and if the color of the AGM matches the stripe pkg color?

You can't wax the AGM insert. You can wax the ECF insert. I have the AGM one but would have preferred the ECF one, which wasn't available at the time.

It should be a match. There are 2 different stripes for the ZL1, one for ECF and one for AGM insert.

I think you can wax the AGM as it just has a regular clear coat like the rest of the car. The reason you couldn't wax the flat black is because it would begin to gloss rather than be flat.

I have the AGM insert also and it is definitely clearcoated and definitely able to be waxed or polished.

Thank you GearHeadSS, I think I'll see about having the stripe pkg to match the AGM insert. Does anyone know if AGM stripe pkg is dealer or factory installed?

I have the stripe with the AGM and mine is a match. I can't find the pic, but one thing to remember is that if you are getting a sunroof the stripe won't be on the roof, only the trunk and spoiler. Oh yeah and you still will pay full price for the stripe. I found out the hard way. You should only have to pay half since you're getting half the stripe. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks Hercules. No sunroof for me. My option list: BRM, Auto, Bright Wheels, Suede Pkg. Nav. Stock insert(AGM), illuminate footwell (dealer installed). I don't want to change the order so I was hoping if I like the AGM stripe pkg to see if can be just dealer installed. Unless its a factory install. then I'll have to make a decision. Don't want to delay order. Hoping it comes in by Christmas.

I think BRM will look great with the AGM insert and stripe.
