I'm in the same exact boat. Patience is a virtue.

But back to topic, get the ZL1 if you can, 1LE is second choice

I'm personally not well off enough to be able to afford a ZL1 (even a used one). And since I did not care for the style changes in the 14 models either I chose to order a '13 1LE. I am going "spartan" and getting a 1SS with no RS package and only back up camera and NPP. It's a decent car for $35K or so - for less than the price of an optioned out 2SS non-1LE. :-) Sparrky, looks like we'll be relatively close to each other so can't wait to see your car. Let's get together sometime (once we both have our cars!)

Thanks haha. Quick photochop I threw together. Had to help convince myself that the 14s aren't going to be as bad as everyone is making them seem.

I got my 1LE for around 43K (OTD). My dealer was also selling a 2012 ZL1 with 900 miles for 49K (~53K OTD). I found the ZL1 a better deal as it comes with a supercharger and magnetic suspension along with factory warranty for extra 10K. I ended up buying the 1LE as the ZL1 was automatic and I have zero regrets. 43K for 2SS/1LE or 53k for a barely used ZL1 - you simply can't go wrong either way.

I figured the ZL1 will drop about 10% or as high as 15% compared to new. At first , wanted a Gen 1 Camaro( love the RAW power without the Smog choking , Fed/Cal modern day restrictions) , but modern Gen 5 has so much more to offer. For the 1LE owners, ZL1 , and previous Gen1 owners, please comment and advise a future Camaro owner. thanks.
Welcome sparrky!

Any updates on the decision/search process?

My $.02, talk to one of the guys mentioned here selling their zl1...I love my 1le, but man if you can get the zl1 for under $50k? IMO, it's not even a question, especially since I don't care for the look of the 14 refresh

Just found a decent 2012 zl1 for $47k w a few options and 11k miles. So My options are open still until the 14s get to the market.

As much as I love my 1LE I would take the Z for the right money. For me $45k was the absolute cap. I ended up closer $40k. If I were willing to wait another year I would definitely be looking for a low miles gently used ZL1.

If youre are really loose on the money, get the ZL1. If youre are tight on cash, the 1LE is the best option.

If you are looking for the best value and are more into N/A car, get the 1LE. Its lighter and get be modded easily to be as fast as a ZL1. Mod vs stock car is not a good comparison? I say yess because even if you mod it and blow the engine, you still have the extra cash to buy a brand new stroker short block and be in the same price tag as a new ZL1.

Good luck with the purchase, you cant go wrong with either. I have a 1LE, and I love it and really not thinking about the ZL1. But then again, I'm not really a FI guy, I'd rather have less hp, but a badass N/A engine

Hopefully that will be the case in the near future !
