2003 C5 Corvette Z06 – 68000+ Miles, garaged. Please read the whole ad for info.

I can walk you through every detail of the car and happy to explain the knowledge that I've accumulated. If you can find a lower mileage car at a dealer for the same price - fantastic; good luck on your journey :).

The fifth generation Corvette Z06 is a fantastic car, both when it was introduced and in modern day. In regards to performance capability, the C5 Z06 completed a lap at the Nuburgring in 7:56 seconds. To put that into perspective, the 2005 Ferrari F430 completed the run in 7:55. The 2015 BMW M2 completed the run in 7:58, the F80 BMW M4 completed the run in 7:52, the 2015 Mustang GT performance pack completed the run in 8:07... Not bad for a 16 year old car.

Ownership – I have owned the car since 28,500 Miles (I’m the 3rd owner, 2nd owner bought at ~6K miles in 2004). I purchased the car from the elderly gentlemen who could no longer get in and out of the car without assistance.

Maintenance: I have the GM 3 Volume Full Service Manuals. I do the work on my cars and you should, too.

Routine: Mobil1 Engine Oil + Mobil1 Filter (comes with 8 more filters) every 3-4K Miles (owners manual suggests 6K), Brake fluid every 12 months, clutch fluid every 6 months. Wash + Plastic UV protection every 2-3weeks, Dielectric Grease on all weather seals every 6 month per owner’s manual. Brake fluid every 15K Miles.

@38K Miles – Valve Springs (PAC-1218 – OEM spec, not using OEM GM given the history; you should know about this if you're familiar with the C5 Z06), OEM Valve Cover Gaskets, OEM Grommet Gasket, OEM GM Performance Spark Plug Wires, OEM Spec Spark Plugs, OEM Valve Stem seals, Amsoil Transmission Fluid, Brake Fluid, both door lock control modules (prone to fail).

@50K Miles – OEM Water Pump, Thermostat + Gaskets, OEM AC Belt, OEM Timing Belt, Coolant Flush

@55K – OEM Re-manufactured Alternator, replacement of both outer window seals

@65K Window seal repair (C5 Z06 prone to leaks due to aging seals), HVAC display repair (needs soldering, common issue).

Parts/Other: C5 Specific Jacking Pucks (Aluminium Jacking Pucks)

Corbeau A4 Seats in Leather with Seat Heaters (Switches mounted to TC panel, see photos), Lumbar Support, Shaved Based (I have stock OEM Z06 seats) – Installed by me. $1900 as optioned. GM seats are horrendous; included with the car.

Interior Cabin Sound Partition - This helps reduce road noise and creates separation between trunk and the cabin.

Proclip Phone mount, C5 Corvette Specific. I've tried them all, this is the best one.

Shorty Antenna (I have OEM)

2004 C5 Z06 Shocks - Discontinued, but GM redesigned the shocks in 2004 which translated to the C5 Z06 getting around the Nurburging in sub 8Min time which was a milestone at the time.
