My wife and I picked up our Stingray yesterday. What an automobile. No more tinkering with the vehicle, under a shade tree with a wrench in one hand and a beer in the other. I may have made a mistake during the ordering process. I failed to order the Battery Protection Plan. So, my question; are all 2014 Stingrays wired for the battery charger so that I can order the charge at the Chevy parts dept after the fact or am I just out of luck. Thanks for your imput.

Sure its wired for it. Uses the outlet in the cargo area which remains hot even with the car off. Search for it on this Forum and you will find much info. Even how you can get the same item cheaper than the GM part. I wouldn't say such an omission on your part rises to the level of a "mistake". Enjoy your new car!

yup, you can can an aftermarket from the same company that makes the GM one for a little less, and maybe even more features. Just plug 'er into the rear cig port which is 'always on'. You did not make a mistake.

I use c-tek which is the same as GM recommends. Plug it in the trunk on the passenger side. My car doesn't sit for more than a couple of weeks but I plug it in anyway. This car has some sensitivity to a low battery. cutnout aka Charlie

Just minutes ago I ordered a lighter adapter for my Battery Tender Junior. Got it on line through WalMart for $4.01. With tax it is $4.33. No shipping if I pick it up at my local store. Can't beat that. Following the animated discussion the other day about battery maintenance, I learned I can plug the unit in the cargo area and keep the Corvette charged when the need arises.

BTW, I also have splash guards and even a Swiffer for cleaning brake dust off the wheels. Unfortunately, NO CORVETTE YET! Still impatiently waiting!

I didn't really know what he meant by a "stiffer." Usually that does make sense to me. ;-). Thanks for enlightenment. If the Swiffer won't wipe off the wheels, I can always go inside and dust the ceiling fans I guess!

Duh..yeah a swiffer...(auto spell) .brake dust is sticky and corrosive, but look at the detailing section, there are solutions in terms of coatings that make it wash off easily....
