    I think there are some minor suspension variations. Not sure but if I remember right there are.

    My friend has an 02 Z06 and its a great car. Cant go wrong either way.

    I personally love C5 zo6 styling, get a blue one. Lower it fixed headlamps.

    the power difference i was aware of. and plus i wouldn't get an 01 because i really want the HUD. but between 02,03 and 04 the only difference that i know of is the fuel system in the 04s was different and is the one used in the newer vettes.

    02 , 03 , 04 , All good pics. You can't go wrong with any of them. Perform a good inspection of the one you choose , get it up on a lift for a full inspection. Do expect to see some scrape marks here and there , as they are easy targets for speed bumps and curb stops.
    There's a lot of good buys out there right now. Don't forget to check the corvette forum c5 for sale section.
    Good Luck and welcome .
