Anyway, I wanted to see if he would look at the car. Not only did he glance at it, he did THREE times. He kept looking at it then where he was walking then back at the car three times. NICE!

When I went to pick it up yesterday at first glance I didn't realize this was MY car. I saw it, then looked around for the car, then immediately stared back at it. 1.2 seconds later I realized this was THE car ... my car! Neat.
Get used to it all these fith gens still turn heads. A 1LE forget about it!! Stay humble my friend.

I posted pics before and after Wheels on the video/pic thread! They are OEM SS 20' rims with the Pirelli Zero tires. Bought them from another C5 member

I need to hurry up and take delivery...too many ideas floating around and no driving yet :(
Ozzy, I thought of removing the wrap too, bit after seeing up close, it really was done well, and i'm keeping it!

I've got no doubt that it's well done, i was just thinking of what SoCal said about it being better to remove it earlier than later, and the extra care required for it, lifetime of the vinyl, etc...and I really like hood spears anyway.

That being said, all opinions of mine might change after taking delivery anyway lol. That's why i need to have it in front of me already! until then, nothing is certain...

That's how I felt, and hey, we're entitled to change our mind, Because it's our car and we personalize them. Hope you get yours before Christmas!

There's apparently another (silver) 1LE in the Bay Area from Capitol Chevrolet. I was the first at Courtes y Chevrolet.
I love these wheels. There is no way I'm taking them off. The question was just for car talk and curiosity.

Does anyone else have an issue with the way the front splitter was installed? The fitment on the passenger side of mine is not up to my standards. I sent my dealer an email. I'll try to post some pics of it tonight.
