M3 -> Z06

I loved the E92 M3, it was amazing. However, I couldn't resist the temptation of the dark side- got into a 2009 3LZ Z06.

What an amazing car

Back in the garage:


And some at a buddy's house:

No doubt that this beast will kill an M3 or M5. But, it's simply not a BMW.

Too bad.

Thanks! I can't believe the improvement Chevy has made. I had a C5 Z06 which was amazing and this kills it. Wow! I've had it for 2k miles and loving every second of it!

Very nice purchase man!

Drove a '11 3LZ Z06 last month. All I could say is that it keeps pulling and is SCARY fast compared to the M3. A lot of discipline is also required when taking it to it's limits.

When I say scary, I meant that in an intoxicating way. I'm considering on owning one someday...

YUP! Quoted for truth.

Did a couple of 0-60 runs, I was like after every run, grinning from ear to ear as well...

Congrats neighbor!! Fantastic car. I had a brand new '07 Z06....it's truely the only car that has ever scared me with it's power. A 2nd gear dump at 60mph coupled with a mashed throttled will have you sitting in the opposite direction you were heading. After coutless other cars since the '07 Z, I'm back in a Vette.....an '11 4LT Grand Sport this time. I freakin love it. What part of MD are you from? (Frederick/Middletown here)

I'm in Germantown and have a performance shop in Damascus so Im back and forth in the area alot. We should def get together for a cruise etc.

The traction is surprisingly good. Hooks about 70% through 1st and the rest of td gears have no issues. It's def fast!! Already used to it though as I used to Race mid 8 sec vehicles need mods!!

Btw the ride is great and comfortable! It's quiet, seats are very comfy and it gets around 28-30mpg on the hwy!

Looks great! The Z06 is a beast. I can't wait to see what GM has in store for the C7.

Went from a C6 ZO6 to the M. Z is a great car for the money but extremely unforgiving at the limit. Enjoy the ride and be safe. Beautiful ride.

Rather take the M3???? Are you sick? Looks wise, performance wise and speed wise a ZO6 DOMINATES.

OP... that is one of the baddest Z06's O have ever seen.... congrats.

Now bring it to Germany so you can enjoy it!!!!
