What's the value on a fully loaded 2015 garage queen?

I've got a 2015 Z convertible that it might be time to upgrade. I think this car was $110K new or so (everything but Z07). Has it still got half its value on trade, or is it worse than that?

I love everything about it except (a) The left turn signal being to the right of you takes time to get used to, and (b) the styling is like a bland Model S. Too close to the S, but too bland.

Actually, I had to Google it, but this place has 104 pillars and the Parthenon has 46 outer, 23 inners, and 6 major. So more than the Parthenon ;-)

It's not as good as the old CL class because they had a fancy articulating hinge, which this car does not have. So the door doesn't "get out of your way" like the old CL. No trouble getting in or out...

Review: Had an AMG S63 Coupe for the day

I convinced the dealership to loan me an AMG 63 Coupe (MSRP $190,000.00) for the day because I used to have a previous generation, didn't like it, and had some serious buyer's remorse over it. So...

What's a "zombie thread"? And how does it contrast with this thread, an interesting question with lots of user responses? Or is it because it takes on a life of its own? Never head that term.

Because I'm a "car guy", a lady was asking me about the $7000 quote for labor on her 2012 Audi A4 timing belt.

I figure there's no way that's right unless it's an interference design, but can't...
