Default One of these is going to be ours tomorrow!

Well after searching high and low for months now were down to 2 very sweet vettes and 2 very good deals. Were buying one of them tomorrow, we just cant decide which way to go. Both are new leftover 2018s and A8

Option #1
2018 GS Convertible 2LT torch red loaded with goodies and 27.4% off of MSRP
Carbon Ceramic Brakes
PDR
Chrome wheels
Carbon flash hood stripe

Option #2
2018 Z06 2LZ Coupe at 24.5% off of MSRP
Chrome wheels
transparent top
PDR
Red calipers
Battery protection
Chrome badge package

Pricing on both is very good or at least I think it is. I made a offer on the Z today but we ended up at $1000 apart. Were going to make an offer on the GS tomorrow morning and see what happens there.

24.5% MSRP is pretty darn good. You were still looking for more?

Good luck in your decision - both do sound very nice. I think since finances are OK with either, it would be a hard choice to turn down the Z06.

Vert with CCB and chrome wheels is a strange combination. If you're not tracking, I'd go with the Z06 personally.

Edit: two completely different cars to be debating between. Vert CCB GS vs Hard top Z06?

24.5 off on the Z that would be my choice.

Z06! The roof comes off. Also, the low end torque makes it more fun to drive around the city.

I feel like when you get a car for about a quarter off the price and its 100k car whats the point of haggling over a grand? Im not a very person so Id def go the Z06 in this instance.

Im a GS owner, but would have to go with the Z at 24% off and coupe instead of convertible. Recently traded a vert and now own a coupe. Hardly ever put the top down...

CCB are essentially good for the life of the car for street use.

24.5 off the Z seems like a hell of a good discount. I would maybe ask to split the difference and if they don't I would take the deal before someone else does. Just my .02

I have a Grand Sport and absolutely love it, but get the Z (no question)!

Also GM financial is offering 0% for 72 months aren't they on all 2018!?!??

Go for the Z06, wow, 24% off is a steal.

What a car of a lifetime!

Chrome wheels are so expensive and such a dated look. CCBs are of no use on the street.

The dealers I have talked to with leftover 18s with the 0%/72 told me that was at their MSRP price. The discounted price comparable to Kerbeck, Criswell, etc was not at 0%. I would jump over either of these cars at the discount shown.
