Sounds like the Chevy Dude salesman? I just subbed to his channel a couple weeks ago. He can get a little annoying sometimes but I appreciate the info he provides and his enthusiasm.

The sweet spot has always been the 2LT cars with some good options. My 3LT C7 was an $80K car that I was able to pick up for almost half the price after four years. I will probably do the same with the C8.

Ideally, I would like a 2LT, GT2 Seats, Z51, Front Lift, High Wing spoiler which would be in the low to mid $70s sticker.

I think the price is still cheaper than what people were thinking. Rumors are still being spread around that oil changes will be $500 and normal maintenance will require the engine being dropped. SMH...

Similar to owning a Chevy SS Sports Sedan? Tremendous bang for the buck?

it's socially unacceptable to be ahead of your time.

Well my Z06 was about 89000 because of auto and gas guzzler tax that's 3000 combined. I have no carbon fiber or the expensive side skirts or splitter. I've seen GS cost more than Z because of all the add on,s. I have no use for fluff oh look at me I got carbon fiber I want the car and go fast don't need a drag queen. The problem price increase over C7 2lt is justified because it now contains Nav and performance recorder 1700 option on my Z also add was lane departure warning, backup mirror in other words your rear view mirror is a camera, the mirrors have the warning lights in them so much more verse C7. Bet I buy Z06 close to what mine listed for. In other words no trans cost or add on for Nav that was as I said 3000 and 1700. Base Z was 71,000' so I will se if I own one or not z that listed for over 90 were not flying off the lots.

Same for me, give the car time to be put thru its paces and get those off lease deals.


you gotta pay for the <3 sec 0-60 somewhere. if its $500 oil changes once a year i can live with it. but i will say it better have a manual dipstick too.

dropping the engine, prob comes with the territory, just wondering was the fiero the same way ?

Not to derail the thread, a simple add on to Iratollah's comment.... Although Doug DeMuro's review of the SS was not totally accurate (as others have noted.. example: he claimed the hood vents were non-functional), however, if I recall correctly, the SS may have been the first (and possibly only) car he has rated as a 10/10 on value. No need for the Doug haters to weigh in now....
