Yet another IOM 1LE

I liked the 2014s and was planning to order a 1LE. But then I made the mistake of looking at 2013s and discovered I was smitten by the 1LE in IOM. It is the negative of my current SS and looks bad a**. But no IOM in 2014. Sigh. So I decided to see how good a deal I could get on a '13. It turns out pretty good. I was disappointed that I would not have the Recaros, But I think I could buy a pair, sell my heated leather/vinyl front seats and still come out ahead with the money I saved.

Also in my quest I brought my 2011 almost back to stock for trade in evaluation and learned much in the process.

I plan to mod the 1LE more carefully and slowly. Appearance and sound system mods for now. More performance will come after baselining stock capabilities. I already tarted up my 1LE with a few SS leftover mods not in the pics yet.

Since my SS already was well modded suspension wise, the 1LE was not an overall improvement in handling. But the 1LE is sure on it's feet and a pleasure to drive stock. Loving it along with the 2012 and 2013 upgrades. Looking forward to making it better.

My drive home from the dealership was in this huge thunderstorm. Felt very secure in the 1LE.

Besides drag racing this 1LE will be auto-crossing too. I hope i can learn enough to keep it fun.

My 1LE Options:
  • 2SS
  • RS
  • NPP
  • Sunroof
  • 1LE
  • IOM Paint

Gratz on your 1LE! I feel the same way about the IOM color scheme.

Congratulations Fraxum!

This is a fine piece of work you have here. I find it especially cool the care Camaro owners take in customizing and making there vehicles their own. If their is anything we can do or questions we can answer for you along the way, do let us know. Drive safe and enjoy!

Yea, I was not a fan of IOM until I saw an IOM 1LE. As I searched for a 1LE I found a black one and drove that. I always buy black. But I kept getting drawn back to the IOM and thinking about how cool the orange sets off the Matte black color. By the end of my search the loaded (minus Nav) IOM 1LE was my top choice by far.

I was very excited walking into the dealer and seeing the IOM 1LE still there in the showroom. I wondered if my stalling on the deal would backfire and I would lose the car. But there it was among four 427 C6 convertibles. Even among that crowd it got the most attention.

Plus the IOM 1LE dealer treated me the best and gave me the best deal giving me more than I expected for my '11 SS and coming close to invoice on the 1LE. Well under considering the $1,500 cash back. Given the difference in the original list prices, I only lost around $3,300 per model year in depreciation. And since I bought an early 2011 I have had the car almost three years.

Drove it a bit in the very early morning and the 1LE is very close to the handling capability of my modded '11 SS. Part of that is the better tires, but still the 1LE feels very stable in turns with only a little understeer.

The shifter is almost as good as my Barton, so I will leave that alone for now. I will miss that tight throw though.

While I did full Poly bushings in my '11 I will stick with just inserts on the 1LE and a slightly stronger rear sway. Is the ZL1 bar a little beefier?

Let the mods begin! (Slowly, savoring each one.)

Digging NPP too! I will get the Mild to Wild switch. I like quieter on long trips. I had a hard time getting my skip shift Eliminator off my '11 SS. So I left it on, I need another one ASAP! And wheel locks.

Congrats. Glad you got your favorite color. IOM isn't even in my top 5 but I like it way better than Red Rock Metallic.

I will keep that in mind. Do you have a 1SS with black cloth?

Yea, it was too late. It was already drilled. Thanks for feeling my pain.

And there is a dealer sticker on the back window and a stick on emblem. I can take care of both of those.

I was glad the 1LE oil catch can fit on the stock '11 cover. That cover is a little tacky, but a labor of love. That is Chevy Engine Orange, a good match for IOM.

That severe looking silver brace is next!

I will close out my '11 SS Build thread and start another. My mild build will not get much attention, but it's fun to keep track of progress.

I have a 2013 with the same interior as you. I'd just like to have an extra set just in case for later on.

Very nice! I had a decent offer on a car very similar to yours. I even had a great trade value for my GTO. I just couldn't pull the trigger, because I wanted to see the 2014 in person.
