Say Hello to My AGM 1LE

Ordered the car on April 4th. VIN received May 2nd, Car arrived ar Rodgers May 9th, financing was secure last week (1.74%), Insurance was activated on May 13th and I was trying to hold out until tomorrow to try for a Private offer............and then I received a taunting email from Becky D. this morning at 9:22AM.

"Sure is a nice day "

Above is the only thing the email said and I caved!!!!!! Picked her up just before noon!

Thanks again Becky and Rodgers!!!!

Pics are from Friday night when I went down to see it!

EDIT: I forgot to post what I found in the center console!!!!! Thanks Mike!

Between Camaro5, Rodgers and Mike this has been the best car buying experience ever. (I have purchased a ton of cars over the years)

Thanks guys...

I will have her out on Grattan on May 26th here in MI....I will be instructing a female member of the community in her SS that day and there is another member of the forums that will be out with his ZL1, but I will let them chime in if they want to be know!

Anyone in MI is free to come out to Grattan and watch...

Oh Wow

Congrats on the new baby in the family. It is stunning.

Also thank you for showing another color than black that I can consider.

Best of luck

I don't know if you have the dual mode exhausts or not, but if you do then enjoy it and watch the cops wonder why the car was noisy two minutes ago and is now quiet.

I should have noticed

I now noticed the Quad tips, which means you have dual mode. You will love it.

As I have said on other posts, GM did something to this car, I drove one with dual mode exhausts, a 1LE and is felt alot more responsive then a similarly equipped SS.

Love it, kind of jealous actually.

Yes, it's the exhaust and also the 3.91 rear end that makes the 1LE feel more responsive.

Congrats Dropspeed on finally getting your 1LE. I too will be looking forward to hearing your review on the performance and handling on the track as well as your impressions on its road manners.

Also if you could relay what your experience with Becky and Rodgers Chevrolet made it a more enjoyable experience over your past purchases

On another thread we talked a great deal about this. I looked into the gear ratios. Even though the 1LE has a higher numerical rear ratio of 3.91, if you calculate the overal ratio between rear and tranny they are so close through 2 gears that I don't believe that is the reason.

It is other factors, maybe higher output LS3's in the selection process, the tip to toe response as 'Norm' had suggested or something else. It is dramatic.

No Matter he will really enjoy this car, it is an awesome street car, with lots of potential built in if he wants more.

Yes, there is something special about these cars.

I notice a "seat of the pants" difference that is night and day between my 1LE and my "11 2SS.

Perhaps, 1LE's do receive hand picked LS3's.
