New guy from South Florida

What's up everyone? I'm John. I'm a FF/EMT down in South FL. I'm new to the forums here. I'm actually in the process of purchasing my first corvette. It's a 2001 Z06.

Hope to find some good info on here along with some ideas for some aftermarket performance.

Welcome to the forum.

Just so that you know, this is the first place that you want to check when something goes wrong with your car. The stealership is the LAST place you want to go. There are common failures that you will experience that most of us with C5's have already dealt with. Don't get screwed in the wazoo! The first thing you need to learn how to do is pull your codes. You don't need a scan tool to do this. That is the ultimate starting point when trouble-shooting issues with your car.

Sorry Mickey,
I tried speaking with someone from there a few months back and they were arrogant and blew me off... Totally rubbed me the wrong way... So I wont be going there. I spoke with them at the Tower Shoppes ar show on Friday night in Davie.

Absolutely. That is the exact reason I signed up for the forum. This is my first Corvette. I've been a Mustang and Grand National guy for many years. I decided to come to the dark side.

I am so very sorry to hear about your negative experience. That was an old issue that has since been resolved. Ernie and the Breathless team are working very hard to recover from such negative representation and that is why I am here. I will be at Tower Shops this Friday. I would love to meet you and would love the opportunity to show you who we REALLY are and win you back. Mickey

By the way, you need to remove the link to your website from your signature. That is reserved for supporting vendors. If you want, you are more than welcome to become one. Let me know if you need a contact.
