The Corvette was the only car that I turned around and sold pretty quick. I regret that now.
I had come from the first M3, so I was spoiled when it came to the interior fit and finish as well as the handling.
The interior was...well...cheap. Panels had gaps mainly in the center console area. The rest of the car was very clean and tight though. The handling didn't inspire confidence. After getting rid of it, I had wished I would have changed the tires out. I suspect that with good tires, the handling would have been 100% better. I LOVED the power of the car and the ride. I hardly drove it because it was so nice. I was scared it would get scratched. Most of that was due to where I worked. Parking lot was very very bad with potholes and gravel. Welding dust everywhere. If I had the car now, I could drive it in, because the parking lot is very nice here.
I could have probably replaced the panels that were gapped and replaced the tires.
One day I was complaining about the handling and my wife said "sell it and get another M3" A week later it was sold and I was in the 04 M3.

I read about coil overs for those cars. There was speculation that the shock towers couldn't take the load. I know some people have done the coil over conversion, but I think they have beefed up the towers in that area.
You may want to read up about it.

Love the C5 and cobra!

But that wrangler is pure sex! I've always wanted a Rubicon for an off-road toy.

The wrangler is fun no doubt. Haven't had it off road since the snow. I need to get in the woods with it.
