New Owner! Bought a Z!

Hey guys,

Just bought a '15 AGM Z/28 last week with 23.5k miles on the car and wanted to introduce myself! Have been snooping around the forums (which I found to be very helpful) so just getting around this thread...

Excited to meet all of you! My cars to date includes: '98 honda civic DX, '01 integra GS-R, '05 WRX, '13 Mazdaspeed3 (stage 2), Lexus ES 350, and now my first RWD/track & weekend toy Z/28 😬 I don't have any track experience but plenty of back roads so looking forward to having a solid car that I can improve gradually with over the next few years!

Already bought a few goodies that i'll be installing this weekend: 360c radar detector, rear black emblem, lloyd's front mats + trunk mat with z/28 logo, front large mud guards, proclip center console mount, tinted windows.

Pending: Autoblip once I find a reputable shop

Had a few questions:

1) Are any of you in the bay area? or know of any Camaro meets here?
2) The car had "vehicle altered" in the CarFax but dealer was unable to find out what was modified. How can you find out if exhaust is aftermarket? Noticed the exhaust pipes hang low (usually scrape even if splitter doesn't scrape).. and definitely throaty and deep. The fuse had been pulled out which could be reason why as well.
3) I've searched the forums and see shop recommendations in SJ area, but anyone know of any in East Bay Area?

So far, loving the car!! The uniqueness factor is amazing as well. While getting gas had a photographer hand me his card after drooling over the fact it was the first Z/28 he's seen.

Welcome! I'm in San Pablo and looks like there's a handful of Z/28 owner's in the Bay Area. I don't know of any Camaro meets but would be in for a meet or drive.

Congrats on the new purchase, and welcome to the family!

You need to invest in a car alarm and ECM lock, the Bay Area is the hot spot for stolen Camaros, and Z/28s!

^^ What he said.



Also, I follow Camaros and Coffee Norcal on IG. They do a great looking meet! If you can stand the inherently tasteless mods that come with 'some' of the California territory of owners.

Post up some pics of your exhaust (from the back of the car and from underneath) and be careful with that splitter. It looks awfully close in that picture.
