    Default thinking about

    I own a 94 LT1 and am thinking about buying a C5.

    All things equal, should I buy a: 2003 LS1, 43,000mi

    or a: 2004 LS1, 60,000mi

    remember condition, color, tire wear, etc is effectively the same?

    I think I'd buy the lower mileage one.

    I'd buy the 03. The additional 20K on the 04 suggests more maintenance sooner.

    I would go for the '03 but it is a decision you need to make and be comfortable with

    I agree, the difference between the 04 and the 03 is little as far as functions go, but the 03 has lower miles on the car and would be a better choice.

    Absolutely... especially given that it's possible both cars were built in 2003.

    Then again, there's a third choice.

    Mr. Lucky gots a point!

    Go out an buy a "Z" car. Then you will be saved all of the time and trouble looking for cheap mods to bolt on or a chip or stuff.

    Really ... if I had to do it again it would be a Z ..
