I have an '04 Z and love it but I also like the C7. I thought about it and drove one, drooled over it etc but in the end I decided to keep my C5. Why? Because my C5 doesn't have but about 40K miles, I enjoy driving it and it is paid for. As a selling point for the C7, they do drive nice, are comfortable and are cool looking. Like Brian said, Drive one for yourself first

For all of the criticism that the C7 Z06 gets it is still the second fastest American performance machine on a race track right behind the ACR Viper and ahead of the new Ford GT.

If I was in the market I would go for a C7 Grand Sport.

I, too, am considering an upgrade to a C7. The car in question is a Used 2017 3LT that was used as a rental (currently over 20,000 miles). In general, should I walk away from previous rentals since I don't know how hard they were driven?

I would ask to see all the maintenance records, carfax, then unless you're confident yourself, hire a good mechanic to put it on a lift and look it over closely. After that decide. Good luck!:thumbsup:

I drove my new 2007 C6 for ten wonderful, trouble-free years and when the C7 came out I seriously considered trading up - but just kept putting it off as the C6 was such a great car. Finally I pulled the trigger last year. . . and I couldn't be happier.

Go drive a couple C7s and make up your own mind - but for me, the C7 is the way to go.

We have a C5 and thinking about changing to C7 or C8. I know I have to cut budget in other areas. But What else I can do... :laughing:

Why not have both? ;)

I have a 98 C5, and have driven a Z51 C7 Stingray. It is a night and day difference. Totally different cars. The C7 is better in almost every aspect, other than the coupe has less cargo space in the hatch, but it does actually have usable cup holders.

You really have to drive one for to determine for yourself if it is worth your money. I know if I I had the money, I'd trade up in a heartbeat.
