I feel the upgrades in 1LE are well worth the additional cost: wheels, gears, upgraded half shafts, transmission, fuel pump, splitter, monotube dampers, strut brace, other suspension components...if the dual mode exhaust is an extra $800-900, I'd pay that too. This is the ultimate cost efficient platform to engine-mod from...or a nice stock track car.
