    On the fence between 2LT and 3LT. I can't really see the difference in the build and price interior photos, except for the steering wheel airbag cover stitching, which I like a lot. I don't like the suede dipped interiors, so that is not a reason to upgrade. Hoping to see a 3LT car in person before I order.

        Has Chevy designed the interior to accept a harness bar? Seems the waterfall speaker sits quite high. If there's a will, there's a way. But with 1LT seats ?

            My opinion only: the extra features of the 2LT are worth it. The extra leather in the 3LT isn't, for me.

              According to Tadge, GM is relying on the aftermarket for their development and install, that for liability reasons GM will not get into them. However, did GM nevertheless create little “hidden advantages” to assist the A/M’s? Sorry, but that I do not know.

                  I think Chevrolet knows the Corvette customer pretty well, is familiar with the go-big-or-go-home mantra and relies on the upscale Corvette enthusiasts to load up their cars and make it possible to sell the base car at a lower price. Chevrolet benefits from your enthusiasm, and so do I, in my selection of a 1lt with no options.
                  I'm confident the car that was approved after years of design is the base 1 LT, that options abound to personalize it, but the base car is the one Tadge and his design team were working toward.

                    The 1LT is pretty nice for a "base" car. But there are some things I really want int the 2LT - HUD, memory seats, front camera, rear camera mirror (although I'm now getting a HTC so I'd get that anyway), plus a lot of other things that are nice to have. It's a good value and you need it for the front lift.
                    But it doesn't include the GT2 seats which are nice. And if you add those then you are only about $3K away from the 3LT and I really like the natural dipped interior.
                    So there I am with a 3LT - they got me.

                      My 2015 C7 was a 1LT because if I was going to buy a C7 it had to be "today" as I was going on a long road trip. The 1LT was in the showroom and I bought it mainly because I didn't want a C7 with the aero package. Car got fantastic gas mileage, and with the Apple Play and my iPhone I didn't need the Navigation package.

                      Loved the car and it got traded in for the 2LT 2017 Grand Sport which had obviously the aero package I didn't really want, but it too having the Apple Play kept the options simple.

                      Just the opposite now with the C8. Going with the 3LT, and every option I see as functional.

                      Suppose if I'm still around when the C9 appears and they offer a 4LT package, I'll be expected to order that!

                        Spoiled with my current 3LT so it will be 3LT for me also. I could do a 2LT if the pricing and deal work out since many of the features in the C7 3LT are part of the C8 2LT.

                          I'm with you. 3LT is all flash. I'm not a flashy guy.

                            Maybe, but for the C7 model years that had more than the just the Stingray available (e.g., Z06, GS or ZR-1), the 1LT Stingray was the top selling model. Not the 3LT. Not the GS. The cheapest version available. For a lot of buyers, the Corvette is an aspirational car, and they are stretching to get a base model, not deciding between a 3LZ Z06 or a Porsche 911.

                              I thought the same on the Apple Play but if you travel through barren areas like West Texas there are areas where you don't get cell coverage and your GPS goes away.

                                There are apps for Android (Here We Go) and maybe for iPhone, that work like a regular GPS. You download maps before you leave for your trip, and the app then doesn't need a cell or data connection to navigate.
