Hey GM, where is the 1LE gear?!
 
No hats or tee shirts or posters or key chains. I can't believe that there is not a single piece of official 1LE swag. :iono:

There has been almost no official hype about this package. Where are our cool videos from Al explaining the unique features. Where is the 1LE badge? Hell we JUST found out last week about the 1LE PCV Oil Separator Kit. :paddle:

If it weren't for the 3.91 gears EVERYBODY wants, most members here @ Camaro5 would have no interest at all. :chevy: Bad enough the 1LE is given a subsection for "special models." :D

Come on! Is an official 1LE hat too much to ask for?

Well I am wrong... there is a calendar. Oh boy!! :facepalm:

I could really care less about the swag stuff. But yes, I've been on Maureen's waiting list for nearly 2 months now waiting on the 3.91 gears. I'm just a few days away from giving up on them completely. I'm now considering U.S. Gear 4.10's or Yukon 4.11's. Roughly $200 more....but I can have them NOW!!!

So you came here hoping for a gear update? :D

Well, I do understand (and agree) that the 1LE's that are now in production should have priority on the available gears. But yes, an update, or expected arrival date of the next batch of gears would be nice :iono:

Guess GM underestimated the demand. Hard to understand really. Didn't they wonder why so many z11 front bumpers and rocker panels were selling before the car was released? :D

800 bucks? Arent they supposed to be MUCH cheaper when we can get them from GM?

mattsfirstSS 10-24-2012 10:20 AM

Also OP this has gone way off the topic you intended :sm0: and I'm not sure anyone has noticed yet

Nope by design. No one cares about 1LE gear... just its gears. :laugh:

daveagogo1 10-24-2012 10:33 AM

While not as advertised as the ZL1 is Last time you had to even know it existed to get one as it wasn't advertised until later on. What a bonus. Upgrade the axle and you got a whole 1LE package you didn't even know they had available.

Ive been wanting the gears also so I'm OK with the complete and total derailment of his thread :D

Consider yourself :threadjacked: :D

Can anyone confirm the price for the 1LE gears was going to be more like 300? Thats what I read on here earlier?

Maureen at Rodgers Chevrolet had quoted me $249 (shipped), that's the best deal that I think you're going to find...........if you have the patience to wait for them!!!

Sorry Tram....can't help you with the 1LE "GEAR" :facepalm: :bonk::bonk::bonk:

Well thanks for stopping by to continue to threadjack and rub it in :paddle:

I do agree with the lack of hype for the 1LE. Who knows, maybe they still have something planned. There have been countless days that I have scoured the internets looking for 1LE videos, pics and info only to find nothing new.

GM didn't even put a badge on it?! This is very hard to believe. Don't get me wrong there's a tremendous amount of value in the 1LE performance package and I'm very excited and cannot wait to get behind the wheel of one. Just wish I could have some swag to show off till then.

Zorns 10-24-2012 12:11 PM

I think it's probably because it is a performance package and not neccessarily a difference in model...like ZL1.

ardailsmith 10-24-2012 12:24 PM

We V6 owners get no love and there are more of us than V8 owners. All we have is generic Chevrolet and Camaro no LLT or LFX stuff. :mad0260:

willhe64 10-24-2012 12:28 PM

Get the 1LE gears installed at a dealer and keep your drivetrain warranty. That's why I want them.

This.

It's not a model, its a parts package.

Where's my badge for the backup cam option?

Where's my hat that proudly proclaims that I have the FE 4 suspension??

LoL
