I ordered mine, am part of the 4/15 TPW week, and still do not have my car, and doubt it ships for a week or so. I turned down cars with the NPP because I did not want it, and almost wish I had got one, and killed the system. In a nutshell, I ordered, but now wish I had not!

Kinda sorta both. I found my 1LE listed in my dealer's inventory online, but when I called about it they hadn't actually received the car yet. I went to the dealership and made the deal. Unfortunately the car got hung up in the "quality control" hold due to tires and I ended up waiting about 6 weeks to pick up the car. I got to experience the wait of an order even though I bought from "inventory".

My 1LE was the only one I could find in OC...everyone had the 1SS or 2SS...barely any manual trannys...

The dealer had this in the back lot and had just got it in...as soon as I saw it I knew that was the car I wanted...driving it was merely a formality...

Keep the comments coming everyone. It is really interesting to hear your stories and find the various ways we have acquired our 1LEs

My dealership had to locate mine for me. There were 2 within a 300 mile radius and luckily one of them was the color I wanted (Inferno Orange). Mine was only on the lot a few weeks and had 14 miles on it. They sent the oldest man (70's) at the dealership to go and pick it up!

Considering most dealers don't even know what it is, it's not surprising that there aren't more available. In any case, mine was pulled from dealer stock (before they even received it).

I live in Kansas City area and my dealer brought one from a lot in Tennessee. Had it hauled here with 16 miles on it. I was very specific on color (orange) and options so it was the only option other than ordering. I love it so far.

Happen to know the dealership? Just curious!
I test drove a fully loaded 2SS at a dealership, but didn't want the nav or sunroof. They spent a week trying to dealer trade one in for me. Almost got a black one from Texas but it already had the front plate installed. No deal! Ended up ordering the AGM and after about 8 weeks I got exactly what I wanted! Just rolled 1000 miles on this car. It is a blast!

I ordered mine on 3/25, my order was "lost in cyber-space" and thus was not in the system. I had Becky check the order progress of my order about 3 weeks ago and found out the order had not been accepted. After two weeks of too many e-mails to Chevrolet, phone calls to Chevrolet Customer Care, and PM's to William R. on this forum, my order has been accepted and I have a TPW of 6/3. Looking forward to it getting here around July!

what was your reason for not wanting NPP when you ordered. For me it is one of the things that makes my 1LE turn heads.

I actually went to my dealer to purchase a ZL1 that was in stock.

My salesman told me about a 1LE that had just arrived and I test drove the car...that was all she wrote. Now, the 1LE is is my garage and the ZL1 is still sitting at the dealership.

I was actually looking for a Hot Wheels version to begin with but all they had in stock in this area was the V6 version and I wanted a V8. I decided to go to the dealership on my lunch break one day to see if we could work out some numbers and get one ordered for me.

After a little working the numbers the guy suggested I take a look at the 1LE they had on the showroom. We talked about it and looked at it and then went back to his office. He worked out some numbers and it was a much better deal than the Hot Wheels version so I left for lunch with one car and came back with another and I'm glad I did.

Now that is proper prior planning. What mods are you installing immediately?

I don't really know the in's of the car business, but how many 1LE's is a dealer going to order without a buyer lined up. Personally, if I was shopping for a SS and didn't know about the 1LE and walked into a dealership and saw a 1LE I would suddenly be very interested in that car. Quite in fact honestly I love to have one sitting next to my ZL1, seriously, swap out every other day, but I'm too poor for that kind of nonsense
A dealer will easily order 1-2 1LEs. I've seen that amount on many dealers. Quite a few dealers still have them on the lots.
