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.

Thank guys.

Ok. Just got in from some break in miles with a friend and also NASA spec miata racer. Thoughts in no particular order.

Car feels very solid.
It pulls really hard in 2nd and 3rd gears.
The power is nice and linear, the speed is almost deceiving as it just keeps pulling through the RPMs.
My buddy commented on how crisp the shifts were from the passenger seat.
NPP sounds awesome, but in a parking lot ect I can hear the metal flaps "tinning"
Brakes are solid. I like the pedal feel and feed back.
Steering feedback is nice (so far on the street)
I love the 2013 rimless rearview mirror as it actually makes te windshield seem bigger. (Less in your line of site)
Holy cow these power windows are fast down and these doors are long when opening them
Most importantly: I have yet to have hill assist kick in. I expected it a couple times on actual inclines and I got nothing? So far so good but I am going to try to get it to kick in tomorrow just to see if it is actually there.

Highlights of the first night out.:

A modified G8 wanted to have a go so we both rolled out of a turn around and had at it. By 3rd I was 3-4 cars up. (This was in Mexico) he rolls up at the light and says. "What all do you have done to it" ME " nothing. Bone stock, just picked it up today and I only have 129 miles on it. HIM (with a look like I just took his candy "oh"

2nd. And nice young African American riding in a hooptie with a pick in his hair stops his phone conversation mid sentence at a light and yells at the top of his lungs. THAT IS A BAD B*TCH so I reply with a thank you.

Finally as we were heading in a flock of 3 brand new M plate stingrays is heading northbound on Woodward (we are now back in Michigan) so we follow to get a better look. Exchange friendlies with the driver of the lead car and just take them in. WOW those look hot on the street.

That's about it for the first night out. I am very happy with my purchase!

-Matt

From my first visit until my pick up today everyone has been so friendly and helpful. You can tell it is a top notch facility through all departments and that can only come from the management down. So often at dealers people are too busy to assist or just want to hurry you along. In all the departments I have yet to feel like I wasn't their number one priority at that time.

I picked up some ZL1 splash shields today and the service manager was almost insisting he carry them to the car for me. (I am a muscular 220 and my hands were empty ) They are just and overall friendly bunch of people that seem to enjoy what they do
