I drove a 2000 corvette convertible 2 days ago and i didnt mind the interior at all, all i cared about was the performance. And in reality i prefer the look of it because of the simplicity

Imma go out on a limb and say that’s not a cup holder. Its probably a place for your keys/change etc

Driving a corvette in this era is just taking your masculinity one kilometer at a time. Mostly when you see women yelling " IIIAAAH A CORVETTE " says no men.

Heads up display was actually first used by GM in the 1980's with the Cadillac.

Nissan 240SX had "heads up" display in the late eighties as come other cars, I would guess.

@blindwatchman0722 True. And I'm a bit of a Honda fanboy myself. But they wouldn't be the most comfortable and practical daily drivers. I have a Civic Si, which is basically a big compromise of daily practicality with a little bit of fun. But if I had the money and space to go for a dedicated fun car, I'd want to go for a much higher envelope of performance personally, such as the C5 Z06 haha

Your scoring system is very practical and believable. It always gives me a solid sense of the quality of the car.

Now you know why GM went bankrupt. For decades GM ignored quality control and it shows in every car they made especially the corvette. That’s why I abandoned it for Asian cars like Lexus because of reliability and quality. Today I still don’t trust GM. I hope all the engineers of the 90s and 2000s are gone what am embarrassment

That interior is utterly atrocious but one doesn't buy a Corvette for its interior. That said my guess is they left the gaps between interior trim pieces so large because they assumed everyone would have theirs re-trimmed. It'd actually be pretty easy to cover it all in alcantara....

Who cares about the interior lol it’s not a Mercedes or a cadillac just remove the stock head unit, replace with a android one or etc and you’re good, and the steering wheel ofc because those two are really the only ugly parts of the interior but yet again it’s a early 2000’s car, I mean the 04 cobra didn’t have a good interior either yet people don’t ever mention that

11:20 - My friend's Pre-OBDII Grand Prix GTP had HUD. IIRC he had a 4 door 1992 before that which he also added the HUD from an STE model.

The best sports car for the money in 2019 and onwards period...No wonder everyone now is looking for one..And its so stylish and beautiful in the mids of today's look a like sports and super cars...Plastic and gaps between the panels?? (All Chevrolet or GM vehicles got that during those days) really it doesnt bother me.The interior looks nice enough and the Gage cluster (dash) is soooo Beautiful..

OhNoes, a separate Airbag cover!
Yeah, it's better that you have to replace the ENTIRE dashboard if you have a shunt / non-"totalled" crash with airbags deploying... Instead just a cover.
Too many things on cars nowadays sacrifice function for form. And serve manufacturers perfectly by causing "one million dollars!" service bills.

Tbh the middle console around my shifter lighting up orange in my BMW E46 is pretty much a highlight on long road trips, since it gives a soothing light and also illuminates the shifting area! Wonder how people feel about "mood lighting" in new cars after a 3-400 mile drive, when the whole interior is glowing?? LOL
Btw, I'd still get an M5 E39 - in good condition, those are just the best for comfort and fast driving! The sound of that V8 though... LOL

To be accurate HUD displays had been around for almost a decade before this car came out. Pontiac used HUD in cars back in 1992, the '92 Bonneville SSEi had it as an option for instance.

What I noticed (and find funny): if you switch the display to KM/H you can only go upto 200. I'm quite sure the car is capable of breaking that limit.

I helped my dad get a 2007 c6 Corvette after 12 years (we just got it like 3 weeks ago) and that story is so heart warming bcuz it was always his dream car, and when he was younger he promised my mom that he would one day cruise to the beach with her in that exact car (07 c6 Corvette) and finally, after 12 years of hard work and sacrifices, and after getting me my dream car first before he even considered getting his dream car, I got a job with an awesome signing bonus that helped us pay half of the price (my mom gave me the other half since it was a surprise for him), he was so happy that day, and I'll never forget his face when I said "hey dad c'mon let's go for a ride" and his face when he signed the title and his face as we both revved our v8s at the stop light(:
(Sorry about the sob story, I just feel so happy for him cuz my dad and I are both car / chevy guys so yea)

The issue with these after they went to 405hp was with broken valve springs and valves dropping into cylinders to cause total destruction. It’s solid if you buy one and have upgraded heads put on it before driving it.

Doug score = meaningless. Corvette less practical than Viper. Better value than M3. Better quality than a Porsche even though Chevy was brutalized for Corvette interiors. FYI, the the dash buttons are actually light bulbs! Common upgrade to replace with LEDs.
