    I'd be interested in the sticker for your convert.
    Looks like you got well over 10% off which is an awesome deal. Local dealers are going 10% on coupes/converts and I can only speculate that your sticker was in the area of 65k?
    If so, you got over 12% which is awesome.
    Assume the Montana dealer you refer to is Fichtner's (sp?).
    They have a great reputation.
    Any info appreciated.
  • Didn't know if you saw the first one that got bounched (my fault) Anyway, the MSRP was $65,390 and from Karl Tyler Chevy in Missoula, MT. So far the whole experience was a good one.

    Can anyone confirm whether or not Chevy raised prices on the 07 C6? It looks like a $2k increase on the coupe...
  • rayainswrayainsw Posts: 2,476
    2006 Base Coupe: $43,690 + $800 destination

    2007 Base Coupe: $44,170 + $825

    Ray:

    $44,995 was the right MSRP for a 2007, but new cars arriving on the lots seem to have an MSRP of $49,290. I don't know if this is part of the old scam where a retailer raises the price before he slashes the price for a "Red Tag Sale". I hope it's just my imagination because I was trying to hold out until Spring...(I sold my '05 Convertible to buy a house and can't wait to get another).

    If the increase is real, have they increased content?
  • rayainswrayainsw Posts: 2,476
    Corvette.com ( as well as here on Edmunds ) still show $44,995 w/dest. as base price.

    And I was at my local dealer yesterday – none of the coupes I looked at has a base MSRP (on the Mulroney sticker) any different. And my salesperson said that a few had arrived within the past week.

    I also monitor other Corvette Forums – no such news has been posted.

    Where exactly are you seeing $49,290?

    Confused . . .
  • vinnynyvinnyny Posts: 780
    No, I think I'm just confused. The window stickers are changed to show options on the top line instead of additions down below.
  • rayainswrayainsw Posts: 2,476
    Um – perhaps you need to be a bit careful \ aware of how GMBuypower displays a “sticker”.

    I see a couple of 2007s listed at that price on Kerbeck’s inventory listing. For example: VIN = 1G1YY25U875114756
    Their stock #: G70686

    The top number displayed is $49,260.
    The bottom line number listed is $48,465 + $825 dest = a total of: $49,260.
    Options listed on the MSRP at additional cost total $4,295:

    = = =

    MANUFACTURER'S SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE $49,290.00

    Options installed by Manufacturer

    PREMIUM TINTCOAT PAINT
    $ 750.00

    CHROME ALUMINUM WHEELS
    $ 1,850.00

    Z51 PERFORMANCE PKG
    (INCLUDES:LARGER CROSS-DRILLED
    BRAKE ROTORS,PERFORMANCE-TUNED:
    TIRES, STABILIZER BARS,SPRINGS,
    SHOCKS, GEAR RATIOS)
    $ 1,695.00

    TOTAL OPTIONS $4,295.00
    TOTAL VEHICLE & OPTIONS $48,465.00
    DESTINATION CHARGE $825.00

    = = =

    In other words, the top number is not the base MSRP for a Coupe.
    In fact, the base price before additional \ optional equipment is not listed on this document.

    If you find a dealer with a C6 in stock, the sticker starts at the top with a base price. The online versions do not – they start with the “bottom line”.

    Clear?

    Initially confused as well . . .

    Oops:
    I did not see your last post until I had finished & posted mine.

    So - are you going to wait?
    - Ray
    Waited 57 years....
  • Dollar for dollar what do you think is the better choice a low mileage used 2004 or the new c6 and why?
  • I have a 2002 corvette with low miles and I love it. My last vette was a 1991 with 27k on it and I can tell you that there is a lot more car with the C5 than the C4. I`ve driven the C6 and as far as I can tell there isn`t as much difference in the C5 to the C6 as there is between the C4 and C5. I want a C6 though, I love the new body style and would love the have that 400 horses.
  • vinnynyvinnyny Posts: 780
    I listed my BMW Convertible in the paper today. If it sells privately, I won't wait because I can't see the C6 prices getting any lower than they'll be over the next month. I won't trade the BMW in the winter because I'll get killed on it!
  • vinnynyvinnyny Posts: 780
    I wanted a Corvette since I was old enough to read a car magazine (and probably earlier than that). Over the years I went back to the dealer to try each new version of the Vette. I almost bit on a C5 convertible but ended up buying the BMW instead. Each time, the Vette fell a little short--until the C6. I bought an 05 C6 Convertible and it was everything I ever wanted. In my opinion, the C6 Corvette is the best car, dollar-for- dollar, ever produced in the US. The combination of performance, refinement, and fun factor is unmatched.

    My advice: buy the C6 and go light on the options--you won't regret it.
  • MSRP:$59,570
    selling price:$55,213
    Residual:$29,785
    Lease factor:.00220
    Payment:$698/mo for 36mos/36,000 miles-$3,500 down

    This is in North Carolina and I would appreciate comments as to how this compares to other prices around the U.S. Thanks.
  • rayainswrayainsw Posts: 2,476
    Selling price looks way too high, if you are willing to buy "anywhere".

    Reputable dealers ( including www.boardwalkchevrolet.com ) have published $12K off on in-stock, left-over 2006 Verts...

    I negotiated $5K off an ordered 2007 Coupe in Sept.

    Good luck.

    Happy C6 driver....

    I don't know lease numbers.

    But I agree with the other poster - locally there are ads for $10,000 and $12,000 off MSRP for 2006 convertibles.
  • what dealer or lease co. gave u that residual value? 30k after 3 yrs seems very low to me, $25 lost in depreciation.. man.

  • I hear you..any specific options or packages you'd go without (that you have now)if you were buying again right now? I'm debating used 05 versus "light opted" 06/07..6spd. I'm especially interested if you or others are satisfied with their non-Bose (1LT, 2LT) sound system...Thanks.
