Default Rare Find 2017 GS

After all the BS from local Chevy dealers in Dallas. Went to Jerry's in Weatherford and got a 2017 GS with $10k discount. Car listed for $90k got for $79. LT3 GS with Z07 package, heritage package and carbon fiber dash.

The GS is way different than a base or Z51. This car is awesome. Just don't like the tires. The dealer said I couldn't put Armor All on tires. It seems to ride very smooth and more quieter than a Z51. Less tire noise.

Congrats!
Curious, what don't you like about the tires?
And why can't you put Armor-All on them?
I don't believe I've seen white strips on Blade Silver.

The salesman told me it may mess up cermic brakes.

I don't know if it will or not. However, I sure as hell wouldn't risk it. They are a costly replacement. Congrats on the new ride. It is sharp. As for the Dallas dealers, I won't even stop at Young, They are an embarrassment to the brand. Followed by Friendly and Clay Cooley. They need to lose the tote-the-note lot mentality.

We looked at that car in April, so 4 or 5 miles on the odometer are mine, beautiful car almost bought it but did not really want the Z07 package so we now we are waiting for the plant to open back up and see if we can find the one we want.....at the right price...

Congrats! Enjoy the ride.

...recommended cleaning of the CCBs is with just plain soap & water...definitely want to avoid any chemicals.

I'm not sure I'd spray anything on any brakes, not just CCB's. Regardless of that, if I am going to dress a tire I usually don't spray stuff on the tire, gets all over the wheels that way and I don't want that. Just spray it on your microfiber towel (or applicator pad) and then wipe it on the tire....problem solved.

Interior looks gray, not black, right? 2017 GS Blade Silver w/ gray interior, 96 in that combo. Not the lowest number combo by far, but definitely unique, especially with the white stripe. Looks nice!

Exactly what I was thinking. I never spray tire dressing on the tires. I use a foam "sponge" that are made for this purpose. Been doing it for many years.
