Losing all of my money!!

Just wanted to thank this website for causing me to lose another $10,000!!! I was planning on ordering a 1LT Z51 with very little extra options, but that didn't last for very long....

Soon I heard about how good the Magnetic Selective Ride Control was and that Ferrari even uses it...there goes $1,800. Then I heard about how you couldn't live with all of the extra cool technology and features in the 2LT....there goes $4,200. Then I heard that the Carbon Fiber Interior Trim was stunning....there goes $995.

I think you get the point. I love this site though, it has gotten me so excited for this car and has convinced me to splurge a little bit in life. I wouldn't have it any other way

So what was the point of this thread? No idea

Congrats on deciding to splurge lol. I started like that as well thinking I'd only need/want a base 1LT. One thing I would suggest to add to your options is the upgraded exhaust. It's something I did not order and really wish I did now. The size, style and finish alone is worth it to me, looks much better.

Yeah the performance exhaust was one of the few options that I knew was a "must have" from the start, it sounds incredible for a stock exhaust system. I knew that I had to have the Z51 package as well, especially for just $2,800. I would've bought the Z51 package just for the wheels alone.

Yea, I decided to just get the 3LT with the interior package, exhaust performance, mag ride and optional tops, painted calipers.
Didn't even try to start low...go big or go home.

Nate GM,
Very sorry to hear what has happened to your funds. I share your pain. I'm thinking of naming my Stingray, when it arrives, Houdini. It's made all of my money disappear!
