I picked up a very clean 2008 1LT Z51 in Kansas City about two months ago. The only mod was an intake, but I think it's still fair to make a comparison.

Larger forum dealers offering 12% off plus $2000 owner loyalty rebate. That's without negotiating. Prices are dropping, 17's are out. Minimum 15% off plus rebate, shoot for 18%. Anything less buy new.
