Question Common parts that wear out on C6's?

What are the parts on these cars that seem to wear out the most?

The tires wear out the most, due to aggressive take offs and cornering....

Leather on seats. Actually more so the leather on drivers, left hand side bottom towards front.

Brakes... Specially if you drive agressively since the traction control and active handling system apply the brakes to help keep the car under control.

Wow! That's a lot. I've had mine since 2/05. With 43,300 miles, Z51 and "maggie" supercharger, all I've replaced other than oil & oil filter, is one set of tires.

Chicken Turn that stuff off and have some real fun (doing 360s)

There's NO replacement for DISPLACEMENT
Of all the screws that can come loose, its usually the nut behind the wheel that causes the problems

Well, DSVettes made me 2 tone leather, and my original black leather 1SB seat skins have been in the closet the last 4 years and are in excellent condition.

Make me an offer if someone wants them.

Well you will likely be due for brake pads pretty soon and with that you may want new rotors, although you can have yours turned if they are not scored. Clutches can last near forever or a week as Sam stated. Depends on how you abuse the disk. If you really use your Maggie, you will need a clutch at some point. Most carpet wear can be negated with a good set of mats, but then you have to replace the mats
