By no means am I saying I got a better deal than you. At best, maybe an almost EQUAL deal for my specific situation, since I would NOT have qualified for the 3.xx percent rate that you are getting since i have too many open auto loans, i would have been at 13.xx instead. But for anyone else, your deal blew mine away assuming they could achieve 9 percent or less.

you by far have the best deal I have seen to date on a new or used c7z. And I'm not just saying that.

Also, i was driving the other day, and a person with a black grand sport on the hiway behind me, got gas at the same station that I did, and we got to chatting. I told him who I am on the forum and that im the guy in the middle of half the fights he knew who i was and we had a good laugh, anyway, he informed me that he signed up for the corvette museum membership which only lasts for 1 year per fee...

And he was saying THAT ALONE got him 6 grand off in secret rebate money.

I dont know about you guys, but im going to roll the dice and sign up for that one before I ever buy another vette. He said it stacked on top of all the other incentives.

Which means I would have gotten about 30g off, and the OP would have gotten 39g off. Hello!

Default That would be me

Hey gang, that would be me MikeC7z is referring to. Prior to purchasing my 1st Vette and debating on picking her up at the museum, I read the membership perks. When I saw GM dealer discount, I rolled the dice and signed up for $100 (me and spouse). Six months later, I pulled the trigger, negotiated $15g's off then gave him the code. The finance guy asked me a couple of times where I got the code from (I told him) then asked why. Stated he had never seen one that high $6g. We went back and forth and eventually he succumbed to adding it on top of the prenegotiated price, giving me $21g's off.

And yes, I recommend joining the corvette museum prior to your next Vette (or GM) purchase, it is well worth it.

MikeC7z, again, thanks for the ride.

we made good time, ill see if i can find the photos If you have any, DO NOT put up any of my plate please Black that s*** out

Props for keeping up, most would not have for that long of a distance at 100+, and in the rain at times as well, I was feeling bad in some of those curves on the WV turnpike, cringing, saying "man I hope he does not wreck his brand new car trying to follow me, but i got places to be" You drove VERY well my man. Be careful in the rain tho, these cars suck when they hit a good puddle.

This is a good man folks. Love your ride Renaldo, perfect color Thanks for the museum tip









The others are on my PDR screen, which shows the speed, so they wont be going up here. North Carolina to Ohio in just a few hours.

Still, you got an incredible deal. I was looking at Z06's, new and used 2017 plus, all through May and June within 500 miles and I never saw anything close to your deal, not even on used.
Refi the loan through a credit union and you will be even more ahead of the game. Congrats again.

I bought my 2017 Z06 sight unseen in person from a dealership in Minnesota and I reside in Charleston S.C. I was a little concerned but my salesperson sent me every shred of documentation on the car and also made me a personalized video of the interior and exterior. Thatís what sold it to me. Z only had 1120 miles on it. I had it delivered after we did the paperwork via overnight UPS. I used a transporter with an enclosed hauler to deliver my Z and took another video of the delivery. Z is in pristine condition inside and out. I immediately had it checked out at my Chevrolet dealership where they specialize in Vettes. Everything came back great and all Iíve done is tint the windows with 3M Crystalline ceramic tint. Itís been a great experience. Go for it!!! You wonít regret it!

If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay ballpark? Is it certified? What trim level is the car? Looks great... perfect color, altho i would go with the OP color as well in a heartbeat.

No worries on the tag, at 100+ my focus was on not wrecking my ride, not on taking photos. 😂 I was having the same thoughts about you and your ride too.

No photos on my side and I didn't think to turn on my PDR. Share the other photos when you can. 🍻

that cpo comes in handy later if you never mod the car. Get a BMS air filter, or an afe/haltech, and call it a day, good buy. How far did the powertrain and bumper to bumper get taken out on that year vehicle? (people dont realize the cpo warranties change per what year the vehicle is on GM cars)

like i told you on the phone that day, the only thing i was scared of is how fast i lock my brakes when i spot a cop, and you being behind me, dont want to take us both out... but you did perfect the one time i did spot one, so... Maverick you can be my wingman anytime. (Cue the corny 80's anthem)

call the dealer, pin them down that you want the solid answer... they should be able to supply it. This is something to get figured out asap, because sometimes the idiots sign up customers on the WRONG ONE and GM wont honor it... so make sure its all high and tight now instead of get burned later. They should have given you a CPO folder, if not, have them send it to you asap. They have to register it on their end when they activate the onstar, make sure they did it. Its a very big deal later.

My credit is pretty good - 800ish on FICO score and ~ 780s from Transunion.

Refinanced before the first payment was due via Penfed for 3.49% / 60 months. Still a far cry from the 1.9% I got about 5 years ago on my C6 but times change I guess.
just an update I refinanced at 1.99% which the credit union in California told me was their ďfloorĒ rate

This is a screaming deal! Would you mind messaging me the details of your credit union? I'm located in Norcal.

That is a gorgeous looking Z ! I love my 2016. Just remember the golden rule, when you are in Sport or Track and want to floor it.....make sure it is pointed in a straight line first !
Enjoy!!!!!!!
