Which Z06 2008 and 2011.

I'm looking at two very low mile (7,000-12,000) Z06s. A 2008 and a 2011. Any suggestions on one over the other? I know the Bluetooth benefit but anything else? One has Nav but my experience with GM is their Nav does work very good anyway, and I thing I would replace with an aftermarket that has all the modern benefits like Pandora, texting and back up camera. Thanks in advance.

A $100.00 bluetooth radio will circumvent the bluetooth advantage. I would closely scrutinize the paint, and body integrity. Ask questions and listen for things that are out of line with your thinking.

Re: Which Z06 2008 and 2011.

An advantage the 2011 has over the 2008 is that they went (2009 on) to a 10 quart oil sump/tank up from 8 quarts in the 2006-08. It was my understanding that the 8 quart tank was not enough capacity in long corners in one direction (don't remember which). Even now with the 10 quart tank it is recommended to overfull the tank by 1/2 quart for track use (at least on the C7 Z06s). If the 2008 turns out to be a better car you can always upgrade the tank if you plan to track your car.
