Default 2LT vs 3LT

There is a huge price difference....anyone think the 3LT is worth it and why or why not?

For me, the 2LT has all the right stuff. I don't need or want the custom leather-wrapped interior, Napa Leather Seating Surfaces, Navigation, or Instrument Panel in interior color. However, if you like the the Brownstone interior, then you have to order 3LT to get it.

Remember if you pay 795 for the nav on a 2lt its included in the 4K for the 3lt...so the net difference is 3,200. BUT I agree with you. Not worth it to me.....

Totally worth it to me. The one major improvement they have spent so much time on is the 3LT interior. It what puts it on par with other higher priced sports cars.

Full leather wrap of the interior vs vinyl on everything but the seats? Totally worth it.

All those reviews where people say the interior is magnificent? All 3LT.

If you want Brownstone, you must get 3LT. For me, that was the deciding factor. Otherwise, I'd be asking the same question.

I agree - if you're going to pay $65-70k for a car, what's $3k? IMHO 5% more for the 3LT is definitely a bargain.

2LT is exactly what I want and all I need. I don't want navigation and will probably go with all black interior. And, I'm also not a fan of the Brownstone. Reminds me of some old den furniture.

That was my original thinking...but, since you can get the navi for 795,
the only thing I can see different from the 2LT description is "full leather" and "napa leather seats"...
Well, the standard 2LT is not vinyl but what some have described as almost indistinguishable from leather... real leather will fade in the sunlight unless you get limo window tint which is illegal in most states...and
"napa leather"? Why is that worth so much more than the regular leather seats?
Other than these minor differences, what is worth 4k?

Also, keep in mind that I am thinking about a black interior....

I ordered a Torch Red 2LT w/black/black interior. To that I added the Nav system. If I had to do it over, I would step up to the 3LT with Kalahari or Brownstone. I didn't have the information and photos last spring that we have now.

Having said that, I'm OK and I'm not down about my order.

OK? I'm, more than that; soon I'll be driving a beautiful new 2014 Corvette Stingray, with a beautiful black leather interior. Go ahead and feel sorry for me!

I ordered the 2LT. I personally think that the upgrade to 3LT was priced about $2,000 too high for what you got. But that's just my opinion.

I plan on a certain vendor installing window treatment that filters about about 95% of the UV without heavy tinting. So much for fading leather!

I'd be going 2LT with Nav, with the Kalahari color.

Typically I like some color in my interiors, but I think 3LT kalahari has too much brown on top of the dash.

I like the 3LT with the red and grey interiors because of the stripes of color on the dash, but would likely get a green car which doesn't really work with those colors IMO.

Black 3LT seems a little pointless, although in person I'm sure the difference is more obvious than in pictures.

Brownstone is the one that has me a little confused, as I like the color and the contrasting suede patches, but I think it might be a little too dark for me.

Therefore, 2LT Kalahari with Nav is a nice way for me to get the splashes of color I want, while saving some money for other options (or for race tires).

That said, I would like to see some cars in person before making my final call.

Nice! Your VY car was cool, but black is just menacing.

I think the Lime Rock Green with the Gray interior would look very stunning.
