Whenever you go to Italy with your ZR-1, be sure your anti theft equipment is okay.
Never let the car alone. Me for my part I would never drive a Corvette to Italy,
especially not a ZR-1. I have to say I like some Italian cars. I would like to get
one day an Alfa Romeo Montreal V8. The car was built from 1970-1977. Its V8
is amazing, 2.6 litre, 4 overhead cams, dry sump, fuel injection and 200 hp! This was great at that time with such a small V8.
My wife drives a new Abarth 500. Small car, but really fast. If I would have already one, I would never drive
a Montreal to Italy, nor an Abarth 500, never an outstanding car.
A normal Fiat, yes!
By the way, I never liked these Europeans lights on Corvettes. In my opinion
they are ugly!

I think that the first part of your message is OFF TOPIC, and i don't want continue to be OFF TOPIC....

We was speaking of tail light...
OK...i need to do this midify because here in Italy the totally red lenses are illegal....
I think my modify is the right compromise between totally red or external orange lens and internl red lens (orrible for me)

Hallo Thomas ZR1,
Are the tail lights the only thing that has to be changed for a Z to pass inspection in Germany. Does the older cars still have to pass emmission test?
I live part of the year in Augsburg.
Danke,
Nelson 007

Thomas:
129.95$*4=519.8$+shipping+27% (italian tax)

You must buy also the new harness: 200$

I think the total is about 820$ (with shipping)
In Italy you take the price in euro and add the tax: 605euro+27%=about 770 euros

For me so much expensive...
My tail light fit perfectly too!!!!

$520 for the tail lights + $60 for the shipping is $580...this are 445 Euro + the Italian taxes: 567 Euro. The original tail light harness is very easily to modify, you won`t need a new one...it`s no problem.

Hi Nelson

One of the best things with a corvette in Germany is: you can nearly do what you want with the car! The German inspection doesn`t know anything about corvettes. They are experts for Europian cars. But: you should be a nice guy if you have a date with the engineers at the inspection. The c4 is a 20 year old car...my car is a condition like new. My car at the inspection means everybody is astonished: What a great car! awesome sound! yes...that`s real v8 sound! Nobody realize the modifications. They can not compare it with other c4 corvettes because there are none. For sure, the relevant modification are registered in the car`s titel by special inspections over the years like Porsche brakes, Bilstein coil over suspension or the special rims and stuff like that...btw my car has the US style tail lights, I don`t like the Europian lamps...corvette flash lights has to be red!!!

Every car has to pass an emission test at the insection, that`s right...but that`s no problem if the cats are on board...btw don`t remove them from the car, it stinks horrible!

....don`t be afraid for the German inspection if your corvette is in a good condition!

Danke Thomas ZR-1 for the information.
My biggest concern was in emission inspection. Do you have problems finding someone to work on the car? I was going to bring over one of my older Corvettes but they are BB and a couple of LT1's high performance. My Z is the only Corvette that I own that's not too bad in the wallet concerning gas.


Viele Gre und vielen Dank,

Nelson007
