    You made the right call and you will not regret it! OK will admit something I should not but because you are new to the car I will at the risk of some snickering at me.

    Yesterday had to go and get an inspection. My engine has been extensively modified and the tuning fixes the software problem of not being compliant when the computer is hooked up to make sure my car is "in compliance". Was very dusty so washed it and drove it around for 30 minutes to dry and warm up all the fluids on some 4 lane highway and let it run a couple of times when there was no traffic . FORGOT to turn the electronic nannies back on had them all off on race setting. Did a turn around on the road 3 lanes where I get inspections and oil changes done and hit the gas a little too hard! LOL went almost sideways and felt like a teenager being stupid again!

    Take away from this. The stock ZO6 is a BEAST in stock form. Do not turn off the nannies until you are comfortable with the power and if you do DO Not Forget to turn them back on! Good thing is they reset back to on when your turn off the engine and restart! You are going to love your new BEAST!!!!

    Just a suggestion; after you take delivery you might want to check if the Magnetic Ride Suspension Control has been updated. This software upgrade is for '15 and '16 Z06's (also Stingrays with MRSC) and is available at any Chevy dealer for $350. Most everyone who opted for it are very pleased as it substantially improves ride quality. (Do a thread search for MRSC upgrade).

    Had NO idea so thanks for the tip! I do plan on getting acquainted with my local Chevy dealer as it's CPO (AND I want a "real" car cover)

    I didn't wind up with the original car I approached the forum with but did buy a 2015 Z06 w/ Z07 package just before memorial Day and got it 3 days later. Been having a blast driving this Summer! Will miss it in the New England Winter.
