Unless you have a short of some kind with the seat controls, you are probably just feeling heat from the exhaust. I can't think of any other source.

Welcome Harleyman2013,

I'm in agreement with thinblue - perhaps a mod has been done and shielding not put back.

Even my C6 gets hot in the center console (not a good place to stash a chocolate bar) and those areas you've described but not so hot as to have to pull back my paddies.

Smithers, unleash the hounds!
Edelbrock E-Force 1593 & Magnaflow exhaust for that healthy American sound. Before SC 354 RWHP, after SC 484 RWHP. That's all I can do and still pass California smog.

Another remote possibility is that a previous owner put in heated seats and they are in the ON position. Just a thought

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit
