Back in march, I asked the forum if you could remedy any of my concerns on an 03 I took for a test drive and things I read on the C5 reviews. My concerns were road noise, stiff ride and wind noise in the coupe. Everyone was so great in responding to my questions and gave me a multitude of info.. I found a 99 Pewter down in North Carolina and flew down to look at it. I fell in love with it and drove it back to Pittsburgh. 32.8 miles per gallon. I have it all! the car isn't noisy, it rides great and the wind is not a problem. I like it stock at least for now. Thanks again to all. Proud owner of a 99.
