Default Is 2LT worth it?

Hey guys. I bought a 1LT Z51 last year and have been enjoying it. After living with it for a year, I really like it but have been thinking about ordering a 2LT Z51 with a couple other features that I think would make the car a little more fitting for me. (Clear roof for more head room and easier visibility of street lights, magnetic ride for obvious reasons, and CF dash....it just looks so cool). Sticking with a Stingray....I like the narrow body look.

Have any of you guys went from a 1LT / 1LZ to a 2LT / 2LZ? Was it worth it? Would you do it again? Let me know. I know some of you have some strong opinions on trim levels....

After sitting in a couple cars during the test drives I decided 2LT was the best choice for the money involved.

All that truly matters is what you feel here. Do what I did before I ordered my 2018 and list all of the options that come with the 2LT and go through them one by one to see if you absolutely can or can't live without them. In my case I found that I really didn't need the stuff that came with the 2LT and that I'd be perfectly happy with the 1LT (and one year later I still feel that way). But just the fact that you're considering this makes me believe that you are wanting some of the things that come with the 2LT package.

I'd buy either honestly. 2LT is cool, but not a huge deal to me (I've owned (2) 2LT's and (1) 1LT C7). It's a great upgrade for the cash, but if you don't care about the additions then not a biggie.

For those on the fence I'd say do it though.

Seems quite simple to me. You know the few extra features the 2LT package offers over the 1LT, are they worth the approx $4500 they cost to you?
What's this thread going to accomplish except start yet another 1LT vs 2LT battle.

1LT includes:
8” touchscreen, Bose AM-FM 9 speaker stereo, 3 month Sirius/XM,MP3, MyLink, OnStar, 4G LTE, 8” HD driver info screen, leather power GT sports seats, power break set/release, power locks/windows, active handling, dual-zone AC, keyless access/start, power tilt/telescopic, leather wrap steering w/flat bottom wheel, cruise control, tire pressure monitor, driver, passenger and side airbags, carbon fiber hood, Bremo 4-piston disc brakes, rear view camera, coup- body color painted carbon fiber roof panels, convertible- power soft-top which can be lowered remotely.

2LT includes:
Everything found in the 1LT plus: Console and door panels in interior color, Lumbar/wing adjust, Heated/vented seats, Seat emblems, front camera, 10-speaker Boseģ premium audio system, Universal Home Remote, Auto-dimming mirrors, Memory Package, Head-Up Display, SiriusXM Satellite Radio with one-year subscription, Enhanced Theft-Deterrent Package, Luggage shade/cargo net

I have a 2LZ. I think itís the sweet spot. Itís got useful options but doesnít go overboard. I looked at a 3LZ but wasnít impressed. I enjoy the heated and cooled seats as well as the cameras.

Love the Heated/vented seats (heated seats work MUCH better in my '19 GS than they did in my '14 Z51)
Love the front camera (didn't think I'd really care but they ARE quite handy)
Like the 10-speaker Boseģ premium audio system (not the best I've ever heard but certainly not the worst)
Love the Universal Home Remote (nice not having the garage door opener clipped to the sunvisor. Not to mention the extra 2 buttons for Mild2Wild!)
Love the Auto-dimming mirrors (self explanatory)
LOVE the Memory Package (once set, nice to have easy ingress and egress)
LOVE the Head-Up Display (miss it in my other vehicles that don't have it)
Love the SiriusXM Satellite Radio (love me my Andrew Wilcow!)

2LT for me, if for nothing else the HUD. Heated/cooled seats are a great plus (maybe PDR), rest of the stuff I can take/leave. 3LT wasn't a significant improvement for me.

I had a 2015 Z51 1LT coupe. I traded it for a 2016 Z51 2LT convertible. I like heads up and the hot/cold seats

Any reason why you would do a big jump to a 3LT? Not saying one is better than the other, but if you have a 1LT Z51 now and you're willing to spend money for an upgraded version of the exact same car (meaning your not getting a GS or Z06), why not spend the money and get all the options? To me, options in a car are like buying a boat - once you have one, you always want better... If that's the case, do you think if you got a 2LT you would soon be wishing it was a 3LT? I got a Z51 with the 3LT package, and I couldn't be happier...because there are no options Im missing...so there's nothing to upgrade to except to a different model (GS or Z06)...

Just sharing another way to look at it...

I've got a 1LT and find it fine, but the more you daily drive, the more the additional features might appeal. Cost is not huge.

There is nothing that a 3LZ has that I have any use for. I donít think the extra leather is if any use.

i like the way you think! I want a 2 tone interior and the 3 LT looks much better than the 2LT.

I wouldn't be without HUD, and make sure that you get dual mode exhaust!
