MY NEED FOR SPEED IS BACK!

So I havent posted in a while because I purchased a new house on 12/30/2011 and after purchasing my house I realized that a 2011 2SS/RS M6 black camaro (only vehicle) wasnt the most practical vehicle for a new home owner. I proceeded to trade it in on a 2012 LTZ silverado (white/tan interior) and use it for all the normal things around the house. Well, my need for speed has returned and I have four options. Please chime in with the best option in your opinion.

A. Buy a CRT ZL1 from my local dealer for 1k over MSRP ($61,444.00). (kills me to do this but they have CRT and thats the only color I want). They wont trade it to the dealer I always deal with.

B. Buy a white, black or VR ZL1 for MSRP. (Not an option in my book).

c. Buy a 2013 Grand Sport 3LT w/Nav M6 in CRT or Cyber gray for GMS pricing $58,013 (whole family works for GM). MSRP is 67k

D. Buy a 2010 SS camaro thats on my lot (yes im in the car biz) that has 70k on it (SIM w/black stripes 2SS M6 w/RS package) and do ARH headers w/cats, cam, tvs 2300, adm race intake 3" magnaflow and eibach springs. Car has no damage, good car fax and no grinding 1st-2nd issues like my 2011 had. (can buy it for $21,000)

Please vote A, B, C OR D

I appreciate the help. Im really open to 3 of the 4. Not feeling the other color options on the ZL1. Gonna spend 60k on a camaro, have to get the one I want.

Thanks,
DH

Just hard for me being in the car business for 9 years to pay over MSRP for a vehicle. Just doesnt even sound right.

A. OR C.

I like the grand sport but it has no back seat. I have see this come up alot depending on what is important it is not a simple choice in my eyes. The ZL1 is hands down more practial than a grand sport but the top does not come off, it gets worse milage,

option B. is not an option to me because picking a color you don't want needs to say you more than 1k.

option D I did not pic just because there are to many variable with a car like that IMO. It is the best from a cost to get into vehicle standpoint.

why not try to order one a supplier? it is not huge savings though mine was 56,204 @supplier -$500 cash cash back.

@HOGNUTZ, 5K is a huge savings to me. No dealer around DFW will do below MSRP.

I would call around and work the courtesy delivery angle. I ordered my from Russell in arkansas and it got delivered to Lassen in albany, or.

they charged me $250 for PDI and full take of gas.

Get what you want, but it sounds like option A is it regardless of the other choices since they proceed choice A. The problem is the dealership knows that a ZL1 in stock is worth more to a buyer than one they have to order. I vote for trying to get them to sell at MSRP or less......worst case $500 over if they won't budge since its the color you want. Yes, the whole buying process stinks no matter how you look at it. I paid MSRP for mine and I ordered it. I was the only one who was willing to put a deposit down and order the car without seeing it first so I got their first allocation.

You should be able to find one you want at MSRP. Get on the phone and get to work!
