Need immediate 1LE advise
 
June 6, I ordered a 2014 1LE 1SS with the only option being NPP exhaust.
Aspin Gray.
Talking with my dealer today, we found a 2013 1LE, just in to the dealer, white, with rear vision package, Boston sound system, trunk mat, and premium floor mats. The MSRP is 39,290.00 My dealer will do a dealer trade for it.
I can buy it for 36,000 even.
I'm thinking this car will be cheaper than the 14 and of course better equipped.
Go for the 13 or wait for the 14 ?
Your thoughts are appreciated.

The '13s look better :)....plus you can have it now versus later!

Depends on if you like the color just as much and which body style you like better.

:word: I would go for the 2014 but that's me cause I love the new body style.

Tough choice. Do you like the curb appeal of one over the other. I think 36k might be high for a last year model 2SS 1LE. You may have some negotiating room. Did you calculate their invoice price for the specific options? Also, find out the build date, add four weeks then subtract today from that date. That'll tell you how much if the holdback they will get which you can use to your advantage too. Good luck.

depends on what you like. I don't care for the 14's myself, I have a 13 and am quite happy with it. 36k is a good price for the car especially if the miles are low. my vote is go for the 13, but you have to do what is right for you in the end. which ever one you wind up with make sure to post some pics!

I went with the white and love how the black stands out. The 14 will prob b a bit more money on sticker plus almost no negation room on the price.

If the 2013 doesn't have NPP, consider the cost of an aftermarket exhaust before deciding which is cheaper. My 1LE is white and i love it but it is a pain to keep clean, sooo much brake dust. The hood vent in the '14 would be nice too, seems like my engine bay gets really hot. The only thing I don't like about the '14 is the rear end... like most people it seems.

If you're like me, you'll be listening to the NPP instead of the radio. I thought the backup camera was standard and mats are much cheaper just about anywhere other than the dealership. And, white wasn't your first color choice. I'd probably wait... if you don't mind the '14 tail lights.

Get what you want don't settle. The 1LE in any form is going to be killer!! Also how many miles on the dealers car?! Some of these get raped right off the truck.... be careful.

aggieguy13 07-05-2013 10:46 PM

the chrome bar on the nose of the '14 is ugly as hell

when i was looking to get a 1le, i looked around and i had some choices on the colors. only found 2 that were local and not over msrp that i considered. it was missing the npp option and came with a nav system that i didnt need or want. it was white and thats what i wanted most. added the exhaust aftermarket and totally happy.

if you can live with your choice then grab the 2013. if not. wait.

To be clear npp is NOT available from dealers... only installed at factory.

If the 2013 has the NPP, go with the '13 all the way!

They do have NPP in a box that can be installed after market. The ECU will not control the valve as the factory intended but it works off the mild to wild switch. Several members on here have done it.

And you're right, that is available.

That is a good price. Not sure if I like the 2014 rear lights compared to the 2013. They remind me of the mid 60's impalas.

Get the 13, limited production car, 9 mos, great price

jcar01 07-10-2013 07:41 AM

Go with the 2014 and get the price down call a few dealers in Detroit area in Dearborn and get some numbers then go back to you dealer.

I am selling my 2010 for a 2014 1LE, I like the new front and hood, the hood vent looks good with the matte black hood. But I am ordering Recaro seats so the 2013 isn't an option for me and it sounds like they are not for you either. I also like that the 24 gets the ZL1 rear spoiler now.

What price did you negotiate for the 2014? I would try to get a better price for the 14. Also, look at Pentegon Federal Credit union, you can save money on monthly payments. Loans are 1.49% or 0.74% with Chevy dealers in their program. That will save you $600 over 5 years.
