Where on the Island are you? I am originally from Hauppauge. I stopped at Smithtown Chevy back in April. I spoke to a salesman on the phone and asked if they had any 1LE's in stock. he said yeah, lots. I am thinking great. Haven't seen one in person yet. I get there - he thought I said Camaro LT. Dumbass, I feel like dealers don't know squat about the 1LE. With this website, we know much more than the salespeople selling the car. I see the sales staff as a facilitator. I wish you could just order it from GM direct and not have to deal with cluesless salespeople when buying a performance car.
I live north of Albany, giving my local dealer a try. If not, I will keep on travelling south till I get one at a price I want.
