My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

they should be 25-30k, but lack of used C7s is propping up the values. C7s are 40-55k used which is :fullretard: considering new pricing. No incentive to lower pricing on C6s especially super rare GS cars. They made very few ~3k a year... 9k total ! They made less GS in 3 years than C7 coupes sold in 6 months.

It's remarkable how little C7's are dropping in value. NEW ones are cheaper than used. :wtf:

Simply no used ones on the market, whoever got one is holding on to it. Nothing to upgrade to. No changes from 14-19

Wonder if it is a salvage... 29k :mindblown:
Can't tell if it's black or dark blue.

Still. :notbad:

Wouldn't even need a brubstaff.

If I was "upgrading" it would have to be to something with an actual color. Though white is legit tempting.

I'd also have to sell Camdalf, which is probably impossible and 5/7 :disgust:

Yep, orange might be worthy of the heartache. I need MadMax to calculate when the price quotient is smallest between my C5.05 and a GS. I'd love that :plac: too. Prolly no sooner than 2019/2020 doe. The white is pretty nice!

It is a catch 22 for you, because the more the GS drops the more your C6 will drop as well. Granted proportionally smaller since you got it for like 18k but... still. I don't forsee C6s depreciating unless C7s truly hit the used market.

https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sal ... 1=CORVCORV
This car makes no sense... 50k miles and 4 model years old at 70% of what a new one costs.

one of the few 2015+ models under 40k where they belong... hell 15+ should be in the low/mid 30s since a new one is high 40s. 9/10 sub 40k C7s are 2014 models which have a ton of issues.

Once you get more C7s in the 30s it'll push the C6s downmarket.

Wow that is a great car at a great price. I love the Jetstream blue+gray wheel combo. Never have to wash the wheels. Hell maybe I should consider one also, if the poon man dies in china. :yikes:

The gray wheels are perfect on any color. I'd absolutely go that route on a GS. Man...I didn't realize the prices have gotten so reasonable. Maybe I should consider throwing Camdalf for sale in the spring just to see what happens.
