    They weren't offering that last week, I don't believe. the incentives I saw weren't that good - maybe sales a poor.
    I bought my 13 GS in late September (I ordered it) and it was delivered right after Thanksgiving. $70k retail bought for $58k. $3k rebate + dealer cash + GM employee discount (I don't work for GM) + Corvette loyalty discount. Don't think I coulda done much better than that. My dealer is fantastic and I have a long-term relationship with them. I agree that the GS is a really good bang-for-buck model. I just couldn't afford a Z06, but always loved the look of the widebody.

    Mine had an MSRP of ~$75K and I got it for $59K with the $3K rebate and dealer discounts.
    I took the wife up to "look" at cars last February and on the way up she said to me "I know you're going to buy a car today......"
    I seriously had no intention of buying one but I knew if I didn't make the purchase that day I might not have that opportunity down the road.

    I thought I might get a better price if I waited til last March but the that wouldn't have happened. I kept checking the rest of the year (and this year) and there never came a time when I would have had a better discount.

    I love the car and I'm glad I purchased it when I did.

    By the way, it sounds like you "stole" that car!

    You and JJS did mighty fine as well. I'm real happy with my 13 GS but find 2 things irritating - 1) high tunnel heat when cruising in warm weather with windows down and not running the A/C. After about 1 hour, my right leg gets very hot. and 2) the tires are kinda worthless in temperatures less than about 55-60 degrees. Hard to get traction and the tires are easily spun even with part throttle. Problem also is that when they spin in colder weather, they want to "hop" and not just spin. Yes I know they're "summer tires". Both of these issues have been discussed here in the past many times. I went with the 3LT interior, as I wanted the Heritage Package's 2-tone interior, which was not available in the 4LT. Interior is red and black, to match the calipers and fender stripes.

    Those GS Vettes are gorgeous!

    Well my funds are limited, so I ended up buying almost the exact same vette I had before (previous one was t-boned). Standard 2008 C6 black coupe, with 4LT options. Only lacks the high performance options. Fortunately it came with not only the stock targa roof, but the blue tinted sun roof as well with case.

    side profile


    cockpit dash with NAV, HUD, Paddle AT, Premium Bose


    cockpit seats


    sun roof



    put on chrome head lamp trim


    rear valance and tail light chrome trim


    Price was right too

    BTW… i cannot believe the center arm rest console doesn't have a courtesy light. Do the GS and Z models?
    Found a nice 12v LED flat lamp that I will install once I find the right pressure switch.

    I hate to admit this, but I've had the car for 1 year and have yet to take the roof panel off. There's not a single squeak or rattle in this car - as if carved from granite - and I'm afraid that I'll develop a roof squeak after I put it back on. Yeah, yeah, I know I'm nuts....

    Well, It is home in the garage. Torch Red, 3LT convertible, 6 speed, dual mode exhaust, chrome GS wheels, red calipers (match the body color) ebony interior, black top.

    You're not alone. I never once had the top down on mine. When I 1st took it out of storage it was still too cold to put the top down, then before you knew it, it was too hot to put down.
    I've had to read the manual at least 3 times to see how the auto (it's easy) top down works so I should be ready this spring!

    Congrats to those who recently purchased their new C6's.

    Sounds like a beauty and I can't wait to see the pictures. You have the same options as mine except mine ( 6 speed, dual mode exhaust, chrome GS wheels, red calipers ) is a triple black.

    Quick pictures. Too cold and nasty outside for a photo session.

    That is one beautiful car! Congrats on the purchase and like others have said you're going to love it.
    It's hard to beat that color combo - I would have considered that same combo but they didn't have one when I purchased mine.

    Enjoy,
