C'mon....Really?you're going to want the Calipers to match the stitching in the interior? Most ludicrous thing I've ever heard!!!

so the calipers on the zl1 are just like the z06. still like them red, just look at the grandsport that have silver, they look plain jane compared to the red calipers on the z06.

why didnt gm also add cross drilled rotors to the zl1?

And I think, "nice car, shame he doesn't track it." The dust covers are painted. First thing I remove on my cars to help with brake cooling.

Yeah the racing classic painted "mouth" thing doesn't work on that front end. Might have worked on the '13's if they did top and bottom, but I'm sure heard the criticism and won't go there again.

PS. You'll notice I striped mine to lower the mouth. I like it enough that I may paint it this way this summer. Or maybe I'll just keep the standard Boss look.

Yeah it's is all fixable it is a nice car the factor just acented thing odd. Easy to remedy though. I would have bought the standard boss and added the ls aero later.

The LS schemes are why I got the standard Boss. I ordered before the full list of colours were known and went with what was shown at the reveal otherwise I may have gone with white and black or orange and white like my fav Ford, the '69 Mercury Cougar Eliminator. The '13 Boss LS cars are killer though in Black or School Bus Yellow with reflective graphite grey accents. The curse of not waiting. At least all the ZL1 colour options look pretty good although I haven't seen the killer blue available on the Vette.

I think I like the 1le front fascia better than the ZL1. If my ZL1 allocation doesn't get built, I may consider a change and make the 1Le a daily driver in the summer. I hope you can get the hood wrap deleted as I don't care for that...and I'd prefer the polished wheels
