    Well I just want to start out by saying I've enjoyed all the posts I've read here..and they helped sway me over.thanks for all the input you guys put up! very valuable to existing and dreaming of owners!.. I just traded my 06 C6 z-51 vert and got my dream car! Ive had 3 Vettes (1 '04coupe a 05 vert and a 06 vert ) but i always wanted a viper..The wife finally (got convinced of the value!) all I can say is Wow! First impression..I got the red one with silver stripes..Really sharp and so far in two days I've gotten more questions and thumbs up than i got in the vette in a month.. After having driven powerful cars for a long time I'll try to give my un-biased opinon.. The vette was a dream.. Very civilized and smooth.great handling and alot of gadgets.(i persoally dont care about gadgets). (Being a car guy i would have loved to keep both) but, it was not to be at this time. Where as the vette is civilized the and smooth Viper is pure raw power...Smoother than i would have thought and very comfortable inside..Im 5'10" 180lbs..and it fits like a glove..I love the seats....much more supportive than the C-6 ..The paint is flawless.. Every Vette i had had orange peel that i had to work on..The Vipers paint is perfect... The fit and finsh Perfect.no work required! And the brakes... I've never driven a car with this kinda of stopping power...! and the acceleration.and handling ..all i can say is.. Holy Moley! I used to race stock cars when i was a teenager and this thing is the real deal....Man I love it...The wife said she liked the Vettes...but now that shes seen the viper in person and driven in it.... She says WOW! no comparison...I know this is not real scientific..but rather by the seat of my pants but i am so glad I bought it.. thanks for helping me make the final leap! just two questions.. Does any one know where i can get a spoiler similar to that on the coupe,,,It is so sharp..that i almost purchased a coupe just for the rear end.. I'd love to put that on my Vert..and also the gas filler door...Id like to get that also,any help would be appreciated... Thanks guys im heading out for a cruise,,, and check the handling out some more!

    By the way sorry..I typo'd, I've had an 04 Vette vert..05 Coupe and an 06 vert...but the Viper beats em all! man it is just so much more of a blast driving than the vette...I drove some twisty's today that i always had the vette on..and i pushed it harder than i ever could with the vettes...and it felt tight and secure..This baby seems to handle best at higher speeds..Im not sure if its just me getting pumped up .but at faster speeds it seems to "lock down" and get smoother... and the exaust note....it is SWEEEEET!

    great looking car. as far as your questions are concerned, h*nn*ss*y makes the best looking spoiler for your decklid, autoform makes one as well.
    The coupe gas cap is not so easy, besides the part being a fortune, you will need to do some bodywork to fit it in. Look at the pictures of the coupe and you will notice the fuel door is recessed. Not worth the trouble and your car looks pefect as is.

    Check Snake Oyl Products - I think they have the gas cap you're looking for. I owned three Vettes before this; ditto on the experience! I almost bought a C6 Z51 Vert but decided to do the Viper experience!

    for the love of god man, dont put that snake piss gas cap on this beautiful car. 199 on some blinged out gas cap, next you will be trolling the isles of walmart looking for a tasmanian devil steering wheel cover that matches your ionic breeze air purifier. do not cheapen an amazing car with off the shelf crap from pep boys. just my .02
