Anyone have an opinion if two thousand over invoice is a decent deal on a new 08 vert? Car list for 66680 and offer is 62111. Any of you who have bought an 08 would appreciate your input.

Just curious...why the move so fast out of the 07 with only 1900 miles? She's still a puppy! Is it just the 08 improvements in HP and interior?

Red- I did pretty much the same thing- bought a 07 in July, sold it (for what I paid) with 3600 miles on it and bought a '08. I did it because the upgrades were worth it to me and b/c my '07 was a 1LT- I bought it b/c it was a good deal...I really wanted a 3LT +/- Z51, hence the sudden change...this is my "forever car" so I wanted it to be right.

Doc, I think that price is about right, might be able to do a little better at some of the bigger dealerships. When I was shopping around they were knocking anywhere from $3500-5000 off the sticker depending on the option package.

Red, Yes it is the new engine, exhaust, improved paddle. I also really like the new crystal red. I am goint to pair it with the two tone ebony and titanium.
There is nothing wrong at all with my current car, I love it, but I would think there will be no more major changes until the C-7 comes in 10.

This 4lt wrap does not do anything for me. The colors just don't seem right.

Sounds great! Please post some pictures when you get it as that's one of my favorite color combo options and I'm dying to see a good picture of the Crystal Red on a C6 verte. As an old "Mag Red" guy, I'm debating a smilar upgrade from my 04' verte. I love it, and it's a great car, however I really like the improvements in 08' and like you, I think this will be the last major change prior to the C7 release, with the exception of the SS, Stingray, Blue Devil or whatever it will be called. However that bad boy will be out of my price range.

As a year-round verte driver, I like the idea of the power retractable top. That's the one thing I wish I had on my C5. However, I still love the C5 lines....:partyon:

One more question....

What is the difference between the two-tone seat option and the 4LT leather wrap package? How cosmetically different are they?

The big difference is $3500 dollars, But it is all leather dash included. IMO they could not have got the colors more wrong if they had worked for Ford.

Rick, My email is down and you don't receive Pm. I going down this am with my 07 and see what the difference will be . If it does not work out I will call you at the dealership.

My deal was invoice + $600.00 NET, out the door. I'm satisfied plus the fact that it was a local dealer made it very appealing.

Yes, I could have done better, but, airfair to pick it up plus the travel expenses driving it home totally negated trying to scrimp for a better deal.

Nicely done Doc- congrats- you're going to love it.

I was down your way yesterday- took 16 into Charlotte, wow there are some nice houses out there headed towards the mall.

Hit that thunderstorm though, which kind of put the damper on the fun...luckily we stopped right before the downpour started and put the targa on so we didn't get wet!
