With all other things being equal, definitely the 3LT coupe. Though I prefer the looks of the Grand Sport (though by a narrow margin), I like the looks of the base coupe just fine. On the other hand, I wouldn't consider a 1LT anything.
My C6 is a 3LT. I would not have settled for anything less. My Sky had a manual top and I hated it. When I traded it for my C6 it was going to have a power top. Also I like heated seats. I added them to my C5. 3LT all the way.

Np question I would get the 1LT grand sport coupe. If it's a manual it's got the launch control, dry sump oiling system wider wheels and tires better brakes......if I could justify it, rationalize it I'd trade my LS3 z51 coupe in for one but with the c7 right here I'm holding back....
If I didn't already have a c6? No question a 1LT grand sportnwould be my choice. The luxury stuff in my opinion on the 3LT is BS. After 6 months you probably won't use it. The 1Lt allows iPod interface which is more important to me. I added HUD for 600 as well as a d shaped alcantara steering wheel at the same time. That's what I recommend but only because you asked for opinions. Both nice but the grand sport 1lt would be my choice.....
I bought new and paid in full. I could have chosen any configuration at kerbeck but the z51 1LT was what I wanted..."...it's not a stripper ..believe me.
My last z06 had all the options and I used them a few times and then never again.
Remember the iPod interface on the 1lT....I'm older but that I use...go figure?
Geez...it's not like a 1LT has no AC, crank windows and manual steering! There are no options that would cause me to choose a standard coupe over a GS. Go look at both of them side-by-side and I don't think you will care that the 3LT has a few extra interior toys. You will still want to be driving around in the GS because it looks so frigging cool!
