I did see the op is leaning more to the A6 so he will lose a bit of power from the 323 of the v6. I think its like 310 or 312. I don't think he cares about it but thought I would throw it out there.

I have a 30k total limit. My folks are going to put up the down payment and the first 6 months. I will have to take up payments after that. The consesus sounds like I should get the LT RS model. Hopefully that will fall near the 30k limit. I just want a few comestic adjustments like rims etc. ( the only reason why I considered the LS model, to buy base and spend up to 5k to fix it up)

Not looking to mess with the engine right now. Maybe down the line or on the next car. I will probably have another thread on what to fix up.

I knew this forum would be able to help. =]
Your folks sound like generous people and I'm guessing they think very highly of what you've accomplished in life so far. Congrats.

$30k is a good budget to work with. Take a look at used cars if it means getting the options you want within your budget.

If you call your insurance co. i am sure the V6 vs. the V8 question would answer itself... then get a loan to get the 2LT/RS... you will be very happy you did and the $50 month payment will be nothing. to learn the models and car better, go on Chevys website and mess around building one. it will also spit out a couplon for $1000 off a new car often. i printed it and handed it to them at the finance office after all the dealing and they just took 1K$ off the bottom line. not sure they are still doing this but it is model year end and they want the '14s off the lot as they r about to get the '15s in. go test drive a few and have fun.....

Hey guys,
Thanks for all the input.

I don't think there are any short cuts in price. I will probably end up with the 2LT. I wanted to get black rims, so should i bother with the RS?

They have a deal right now where it's 0% APR for 72 months.

You can still get the 2LT/RS and change the wheels. Nice thing about having the RS wheels is you can sell them either on here or on Ebay and make a little money with them. Lots of people are looking to snag RS wheels for their cars.

I went the 1LS route and changing out things I didn't like. 23k for the car. Then added MRT v2. Leather wrapped steering wheel and shifter.

1LS, 2LS, 1LT, 2LT, 1SS, 2SS, ZL1, and then Z28
If you want auto you can't get the 1LS, if you want more of the luxuries go with RS model 2LT.
Now that I've given my advice...

2LT/RS will be a very nice car! Remember all V6's can be ordered with the NPP dual mode performance exhaust option (regardless if auto or manual transmission). All the looks, decent performance, economical and affordable!

It depends on what you want. I went with the 1LT/RS because I'm 21, married, and a college student. Only get what your budget will allow. My wife and I already discussed the purchase of a V8 model once I get done with optometry school. If your parents are paying then respect that and don't go over the $30,000 budget your parents gave you.

I concur with the 2LT/RS option. This will give you all the cosmetic goodies like nice wheels, hid headlights, leather interior, hud, etc and it will be a tremendous looking and great performing car. Best of luck to you with this.
