Hello to everyone on the board!!  I just bought my new Avalanche yesterday, and I have mixed emotions about it.  No fault of the Avalanche...Its just that I felt I had to trade in my 2001 Corvette because my wife truly hated the car, and I needed to make peace in the family.  I am thrilled how this truck rides, it just isn't a Corvette.  I'm interested in getting stuff for the Avalanche, where's a good site or location?  Thanks

Welcome to the club!  Great resource and terrific folks!

I think I know exactly what you're feeling...  The Av is the first car I've HAD to buy in a long time.  I have two sports cars; however, my wife's car died and she took my sports sedan (I was able to keep the convertible, though!).  I had to buy the Av as a daily - got a really bad case of buyer's remorse the next day:  

Did I spend too much?  
Is it what I really want?  
Should I have bought something cheaper/sportier/etc.?

Sounds like you may have had to make a compromise and you're experiencing the same thoughts.

Good news:  I got over my buyer's remorse in a few days and I'm really happy I got the Av.

Sorry to hear that you had to give one up for the other.   :'(   I must really be lucky to have an understanding wife that realizes I need both of them.  (I guess it doesn't hurt the fact that she gets to drive the one I'm not driving at the time...)  ;)

The sacrifices we must make...

To be honest, I still like to drive the Av more than the Vette (ok, so XM has a little something to do with that)  ;)

Been on the site as a non-member for about two weeks (doing research) and finally picked up my Yellow WBH this pas weekend and love it!!!   Wife talked me into the Yellow and am glad that she is mine!  (Both the wife and car!)  No pictures yet, but if you have seen the stock Yellow WBH.....then you have seen them all.  I do like the aftermarket hood on Joelis's Yellow. :)  (previous page)  
Any idea where to get that????  
I have learned alot from this site and just want to say thanks to everyone.
Also, I like the 'secret society' thing that is going on with the Amber DRL's.
How many Yellow AV's are going to be produced this year compared to the......let's say, White ones?  Just curious to know if anyone has heard.  I know it is an 'interim' color, but how many?

Hi all! just closed the deal on my new Av last night.  I got a 2003 Z71 in the new dark grey metallic.  I can't wait to bring it home!  I had to leave it to get the rust proofing and stuff done but I should be getting it next week.  Can't wait!
