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.

My story is completely opposite. I bought a 1LE had it for a few weeks, test drive a ZL1 and realized I made a mistake. Lol. ZL1 was bought and 1LE was traded in with 488 miles on the speedo.

I was ready to buy mine and found one at a dealer in Austin. I emailed the sales dept. and they told me they still had it, but I was out of town and told them I would come down that Saturday when I got back in town. Well it wasn't 3 hours later he emailed me back and told me another sales man just sold it. Then a day later another chevy dealer in Austin got in a black 1LE and I didn't want to jinks myself again and I do not call just waited till I got back in on Saturday and went to the dealer and there it was still for sale. And it's all mine now very happy with my choice.

I bought mine from dealer stock... Almost exactly as I would've ordered it. The only option it had that I probably wouldn't have ordered was the back up camera. Now that I have it... I definitely would've been missing out. As a dd, makes parking simple.

I always have to order my Gen 5 Camaros. LOADED up 1SS coupes without a sunroof. I don't care for leather cause it's too hot in Houston. I always order every single option except 2SS and sunroof.

Lol!

I did the same thing in '07 when I bought a Corvette Z51, then traded it w/726 miles for a loaded Z06!

My wife still thinks I'm nuts

I ordered mine last fall and it was the first one at the dealership, getting it on election night last November. I had over 11,500 miles on it, have done 4 track days and one auto cross with it this year.

I wanted a 1SS with a couple amenities as it will be more of a track car than daily driver. I didn't even bother searching, just ordered it from Becky at Rogers as I had other things going on in life and had the time to wait.

Ordered on April 4th, VIN received May 2, Car arrived at dealer May 9th.....I saw it Friday night and will pick it up by Thursday this week, schedule dependent!
