    I have to agree, the front cap on the C6 is boring. That yellow pic above may look like a catfish mouth, but it's better than what we have.

    I prefer pop-up lights, but at least these work. I added HIDs to my C5 Z06.

    I still remember how my C4 lights did the roll over when turned on. Always thought that was cool.

    The C6 front cap needs more detail, it's just too bland. GM did a better job on the Saturn Sky.

    They've got to get that Chevron cartoon car look off of the front.

    Actually, IMHO the C6 looks nicer than the Ferrari 599. Most people tell me that it's the best looking Corvette ever. To each his own, I guess.

    I was hoping the tiger shark front fascia would make production. I think it looks agressive without being over done.

    we'll see what the future brings. the c6 looks best in black IMHO

    The more I look at the C6 the better I like it. The one thing I just don't care for is the body color under the headlight cover. Black ones are the only ones that look right although black in the headlights wouldn't look good on any other color. A chrome headlight area would look too ricey.

    How about keeping the fixed headlights and having a body colored cover that would drop slightly and retract back under the fender like a sunroof exposing the clear covered headlight module that would then raise slightly to become flush with the fender? You would have a clean no headlight look with the benefits of the good aero of the fixed light when they were on.

    Nice Idea but it's just more STUFF to go wrong; and it will add more weight; but it's a really nice idea.

    We finally got rid of the pop-ups, don't bring them back. Overall I really like the C6 but I would like to see a more aggressive look to the front end as others have stated. And a better implementation to the front license plate bracket. But I would rather see the individual state requirements for a front plate go away instead. This would allow the auto makers more design leeway when designing.

    Some states just don't think that we give them enough money at tax time
    but,thats just my opinion since I came from a one plate state (Pennsylvania) to a two plate state(ohio).Any way as per the popup lights yes,I'm glad there gone and yes the C6 has alot of class.Keep up the good workG.M. but,bring back Lemans blue boy do heads turn when my vette drives by and I assure you it's mot me it's the vette.

    I just had to say "I like ALL Corvette's", even the C6's, although I would not buy one. My first Corvette was a '63 cpe, I was 19 yrs old. My second came in '01 and was a '77 cpe. In '03 I purchased my Z06. All of my Corvette's had hidden headlights and that's the way I like them. If GM were to come out with hidden headlights in the future I might consider getting one. If not, it looks like I'm staying with my '03.

    Default The best.

    Nothing, I say again, nothing they do or can come up with will ever surpass or can improve on the body work of the C6; it is the perfect corvette, the ultimate corvette, it is my corvette.
