Canadian spec ZL1 in the US.

I have been searching for about 10 min now. I am looking for owners or a thread related to Canadian spec ZL1's in the states. I have seen one member post that he has a Canadian spec car and loves it. My question is about the resale value of it. Would that really hurt ? Do you guys think I would be stuck with it? My wife is concerned about it. I am too a little. Any advice would be nice. It seems to be a super clean car. What would you offer the dealer for it. I got them down to 40,900. it has 7,900 miles on it.

Here is a link. Have about 48 hrs before I go drive 6 hrs.

Thanks Ray

I don't see much of an issue honestly. The only notable differences I know is the kph cluster and the kilopascal boost gauge.

The boost gauge in these cars is so out of the way you never even look at it and you can change the kph to read mph, and you'll almost never read the speed off the speedo, it'll be off of the HUD or screen in the middle which you can set to say MPH.

I see the concern but it'd be strange to me if someone wanted to pay you significantly less just because of that stuff.

Another thing, I got two different answers from GM about the warranty. One person said the cluster would have to be swapped out for say a supercharger issue and another person said it would no issue at all.

Getting differing responses to the warranty issue doesn't make sense...The SC warranty should cover any ZL1 regardless of the country of destination, period...As another issue of purchase you can ask the dealer to replace the cluster to solidify the deal...If they agree problem solved, if not you may want to continue searching, because this ultimately will be a major headache for you...

They would have to change out the gauge cluster if they wanted me to buy it. Period.

This x2.

With HUD, you will never use the speedo. The console gauges are completely useless but they are easy to change if you really want to after purchase.

The car looks super clean

I loved my Canadian Truck with Kph - my Kid thought I was doing a 100 when I was a pinch over 60MPH!
