Hey guys need your opinion

First post have been creeping for a long time. Looking to buy a 1le and have found one that is relatively close. Have drove a ZL1 but don't want to throw down the big bucks. I think this might be a good option for me. He wants 43,900 but I think I've got him talked into 40. Do you think this is a good deal.... fair, good, or walk away?

Here's the car http://www.evolve-motors.com/2014_Ch..._226603709.veh

Any feedback is very appreciated.
Thank you!

supercharged, which is nice, it voids the factory warranty. I would rather have a brand new one with no mileage around 38k and add my own supercharger. If you get it make sure you take it to a reliable shop to make sure compression ratios are okay.

Because he's asking full retail on a used unit. The value of the car has gone down tremendously from it having one owner and is past the break in period so you don't know for sure if that was done correctly. That's the only reason I wouldn't do it. I would pay the same price for a new unit to be honest.

From their site:

"Full Chevrolet Factory Warranty"

Absolutely 100% incorrect. You will have 0 warranty on the driveline with the addition of the supercharger. If you buyt a new one, which can be had for less you get a 5yr/100K drive line warranty and it will put close to 400whp down vs the 517whp claimed.

if you want supercharge go with a zl1. ya its more but it has a warranty. the supercharger is like 7k new? added to a 40+ car. and you can bet its been raced or driven hard. good luck!

Ok, I understand the whole new car deal and appreciate your opinions. Thank you guys very much. Apparently the car was owned by an older gentleman that had to sell for heath reason. Which I did not ask any further. The charger was installed by Ty Mason who does all the work for Bergstrom??? in lower Michigan. Which they tell me is covered by warranty. Keep it coming no feelings hurt here. Thanks!

The 43,900 price they are asking is just about spot on what that cars msrp was brand new. Sounds like dude probably spent 10 grand on the supercharger and exhaust. I'm sure it's an awesome car but the chevy warranty is gone. I think SLP offers their own warranty but I believe that's if they do the install. Msrp on my 14 2SS/RS 1LE was 47,900, but with recaros, NPP, and NAV. The car u are looking at is definitely a 50k+ car with the extras but personally I would still buy a brand new one, but that's just me. I love my car and I also love knowing that I "built" it how I wanted it and ordered it. Good luck making a decision

Like others have stated, I would go new and do all the mods you feel comfortable with, this way you know exactly what happened with the car, and can make decisions about what will affect your warranty.

These 1LEs are utterly amazing cars in stock form! Can personally vouch for that... plus you would have fun doing the add-ons a bit at a time like the rest of us. Good luck man, keep us posted on what you decide!

If you do go new, you absolutely must order at least the Recaros and the dual mode exhaust.

Some really good advice above. It's easy to get caught in the moment when hunting for a vehicle. As with others I'd walk away and keep looking. There are used units around at a fair price or if you're willing expand your search, look for a new left over and maybe get a pretty good deal.

Thank you all for all your help. Was planning on add a charger to the car, new or used, just thought it was a decent buy being included. Going to sleep on it give you an update in the morning. As you can tell sleep is not that easy tonight. Was planning on picking it up today, but I am currently tossing and turning. Thank you for all your input. Most receptive forum ever!

I got brand new '14 2SS/RSS 1LE with NPP, Nav, and Recaros for about $42K. Gotta love the warranty piece of mind, and knowing the car's history. If you want more power, pick up a gently used ZL1. The minute you do a major mod to a car, it can void the warranty and will lower the resale value.

Everyone has a good point in walking away from it, but if you can ensure it's providence then you might end up with a good deal. I would also walk away from it but if it turns out to be a bad deal, sell the supercharger and the car seperately and you might be able to recoupe your $.

They wouldn't happen to have the original intake would they?

SLP has long been affiliated with GM and they were the ones doing the conversions of the 4Th gens from the factory for the SS, WS6 and Firehawks. It's is true that if you get the kit installed in an approved shop which is a GM Dealer you will keep your original warranty in tact. SLP does give a warranty of 36 months/36,000 miles on the Blower and related parts so you are safe incase something happens. My friend has his 2013 SS in now doing the swap at a GM dealer and he even confirmed with the dealer that it's true. BTW, the blower that SLP uses is better then the one GM uses especially since there is many ZL1 owners getting new supercharges because of lot's of play in the nose before it engages. There is a notice out on this so go check in the ZL1 section. The supercharger and install adds $12k to the price. Check out their website and get your information and make your decision.

The dealership does not set the warranty terms. They are the first line of defense, and more often than not incorrect on how the warranty works. they may help you out or cover something that they should not have.....but if a more is blow, GM reps will get involved and I guarantee it will not be covered.

If you have a an SLP blower and SLP tune (only) you can purchase an additional warranty form SLP. But as soon as the blower and tune are installed the GM factory warranty on those parts is void..

From the SLP site it states there is an "Optional 3 year /36,000 mile Limited Powertrain Warranty"

3 year / 36,000 mile SLP Limited Powertrain Warranty
Optional 3 year / 36,000 mile SLP Limited Powertrain Warranty

Tell you friend to get it in writing from the dealer that the factory warranty is 100% intact after a supercharger and tune are installed.....IT will never happen!

I think if I can verify the warranty. I will be purchasing. I will keep you guys posted. Thanks again for all the honest comments. Would you drop 40 with an intact warranty?

Not a penny over 35,... otherwise I would spend the top up front for new and call every mile my own.

m2c

edit to add- with the warranty of course

edit edit to add: I doubt they bought it for that much. Specialty cars on used lots are high markup. Not high volume.

one thing nobody has mentioned is... It's NOT a 1le !! Op said he wanted to buy a 1le. this is a SS RS with a supercharger but without all the great extras that come with the 1le. just thought I'd point that out. we seem to be talking apples and oranges here....

It is a 1le, all the components are there.

The guy who wrote the ad didn't do a very good job fact checking his statements tho.
