Be realistic on your expectations. The retail on a CPO 2013 ZL1 with 20,000 miles is $37,000 to $40,600. I'm thinking a realistic value for yours (without knowing the mileage) will be $33,000 tp $35,000 on trade. Plan on ponying up $28,000 to $30,000 out the door.

Done!
I happy and sad all at once!
I loved my ZL1 so much, but really think the Z28 is for me since I love the road course so freaking much!
Recaro seats
Ceramic brakes
427 engine with no supercharger causing heat soak
305's all around
Sick suspension...

Some lucky guy is gonna grab a sweeeet ZL1 from Miami Lakes Chevy!

Wow, I just got it home (sadly, through the pouring rain for the last 30 minutes)
Anyhow, its a completely different car!
Its amazing, and the RPM's...sick!
What is the break in period again?? I don't know if I can hold out 1,500 to drive this car the way I want to! Its an animal

I must admit, the ZL1 was waaaaaay plush next to this ride, I gotta get used to the ride and the seats, but since I only use it for the track, and to take my 2 boys and my wife out 1-2 times a month, it's cool!

One concern is helmet clearance!
I lowered the seat all the way down and it doesn't provide much clearance (prob should have brought the helmet with me to test the car)

Anyhow, more posts to come!
I need advice on lowering, headers, upgrades, etc...

More like in 2 days....liked the ZL1 a lot and it was hard to let it go, but the Z/28 quickly made me forget all about the ZL1.

Yep. I am 6'5" and can't fit with a helmet.

The ZL is much more plush. The Trofeos are very stiff, which is partly why it's so stiff. If you are going to use it for track & street duty you may want a alternate set of wheels and tires and go w/ street friendly tires. If you aren't going to track it then I'd suggest selling the Trofeos now and buying different tires. Wish I had done that.

Anyway... CONGRATS! You are gonna find lots of reasons to run random errands! Make sure you post up a pic or 2. Love Summit White!

Oh no, I don't need additional tires.
I'm going to track the car as often as possible!
