Good sticky for sure. I am going to stick with GM stuff and just change it often.

Yes they do. The dash one is pretty easy to swap I hear.

Car cover? Is the car going to sit outside or garage kept? If garage kept then GM offers some really nice indoor covers.

ZL1 add on jack pads. I tightened my attachment set screws just enough that I can take them on and off when I put the car in the air. Takes under a minute to take them on and off. Some guys leave them on. I keep mine stored in the trunk in case I do need them. They are nice pieces so it keeps them clean too. And also, you never have to wonder if they have contacted anything and are about to fall off the car.

I have not had a good experience with PPF. I am looking at fender extensions to help cut it down.

Indoor car cover.

ZL1 add on jack pads for sure. I have some magnet ones for my V now but these clamp on ones look pretty good.

Thanks,
D.

Planning on tint all the way around will help big time on the heat.

Color correction and ceramic all the way around and the wheels will make life easier.

Definitely D get some tint on those windows. It looks good and makes a difference especially if you get ceramic tint.

Do your first oil change at 500 miles then do the second oil change and all of the other fluids at 1500 miles.

I just donít want to spend around $500 on the dash insert. Itís nice but not that nice if you know what I mean.

I would add a skip-shift eliminate harness to your shopping list. Others will probably chime in to report that you can learn to drive around this feature, but why change your behavior when you can change the car's for around fifteen bucks and five minutes. You can turn it off in the tune, but I wouldn't do that due to warranty concerns

The drive home will be like 820 miles.

Could have it done on the way home but may just have the stuff waiting and do it when I get it home.

Heck, maybe do them all at 1000 and again at 3000.
