I have seen members take a loss from going to a Auto to a manual several times on this forum. That alone is worth it as the manual is 80% of the fun imho. As for getting the 1LE that's just gravy. The hard part for me would be to give up the rag top.

I'd keep the vert. Save a little money (OK a lot), get the 1LE track pack, ZL1 front & rear brake kits for your vert from Chevrolet. Go Here.

I appreciate all the input from you guys. I'm kinda surprised by the convertible love. But, I've decided to keep my 2SS Convertible. I'd bounced back and forth on whether I should keep it stock for better trade-in value if I ever decided to trade-up (LS7/Z28 rumors), or just do my own mods. A $60,000 car would be quite of a stretch for me financially, and honestly, I'm just too attached to her being my first car I've bought myself. I'm not a motorhead and have never done any mods to any vehicles myself, but I'm sure I'm in the right spot to get information on where to go and what to do when 400 horses and a neutered convertible isn't enough.

TL;DR
keep the convertible and eventually mod it.

figured I'd show you guys what she looks like...
