    Body color c7 rear end! Finally!

    Saw this at the big e this passed weekend, which has an awesome Chevy area by the way. Including the new Colorado, which had a nice crowd around it. When did they start doing the body color rear on the corvette? Looks much better than the black plastic.

    What's up with the different coloration inside the exhaust tips?

    There are exhaust valves that only open in certain modes and in certain conditions. The two that are open all the time therefore collect more exhaust soot.

    I'd be willing to bet it's just the standard Carbon Flash painted bumper against the Black paint that makes it look body color.

    I just see a black car with the "normal" black plastic trim pieces. Is that it?

    They're not that hard to paint. I wouldn't tho, GM/Chevy did that stuff perfect (mo).

    The more oil consumption the engine has, the faster they soot up. The more time in between cleaning them, the worse it looks. I feel very fortunate my engine doesn't consume oil, but on the other hand, I keep the car clean too, all of it. People gonna do what they do.

    I remember reading something about all or the black plastic trim pieces would be available in body color as an option on 2015 models. Can't remember where but this was a few months ago.

    Personally, I don't like the body colored pieces. I like the contrast between the colors because it provides some separation in design elements and highlights them. However, some people like it and I'm glad that Chevy continues to offer a higher degree of customization for the C7.

    Agreed, the Carbon Flash accents are very nice.

    Plus, the 2015s have the option to get the inserts painted different colors as well.

    Personally, I like the different colored grills. They are painted so its a great look.
