Default Color choice ! Here we go again!

I'm a shopper when it come to buying cars! I look for the best deal
then worry about the color. Happened to me on my Z06.
So I have been shopping ZR1. Best deal I have seen is not a prefered
color for me. But I have an appointment in the am to test drive the car
anyway.

These Z cars (both) are a lot of money...IMO, don't get a color that you don't love.
You've got to look at it every day & be happy. G-L

I not sure I want to spend 15,000 more on a different color!
It has 15k miles. It's half price of a new one.

...well, I guess there's always a price at which color is less important ! You didn't say that...

I'm the same way. I would have preferred a CG with black cup wheels. I got a AW with grey wheels. I really like it. Only color I couldn't do is VY

Based on MSRP that means the car you're looking at is priced around 60k give or take a little bit. Sounds like a great deal as far as pricing. I would still have to decide if I really liked the color enough to buy it though. To me they look good in all colors but we all have our preferences. I think the test drive will help you make up your mind.

60K sounds too good to be true. They are all great cars but still you have to be happy with it for all that $$$

Just my opinion but I've never seen a ZR1, in any color, that did not look good to me. I do like some better than others. Cyber Gray quickly comes to mind.

I could live with any color if the car I was looking at was nice, had only 15k on the clock, and was half the price of new. Believe me, these cars are very easy to "like."

That is a good price yes. I have to fine toothcomb the car this morning.
It was a one owner who traded back to the original dealer at 10,000,
miles. Who sold it and it during that time. Before or after it showed here with 15,054
miles. Had some damage but totally repaired. But has clear title.
I'm looking at the carfax this morning
and they said perfect shape otherwise.
Picture looked great! I will know when I look it over if it is right.
They are hard to read.
Just looks like they are selling real slow. A good deal will move but
they are not selling anywhere close to blue book.
Even when they bought less than MSRP! You still lose too much
EXACTLY why I would not buy and did not buy these new.
They drop like a rock like any other car. Hundreds of people paid
a heafty price tag of over 100,000k didn't get much use. Even with only
50 miles they can't re- sell without a 20k plus beating. When they try to resell!
Even a no mile car has lost a ton. But if it remains no mile the value will come back some over time.
This car could be a great deal for me. If I get it less than 65,000.
We see what a cash deal will bring.
