last i checked on c5, there is always an abundance of affordability concerns with the camaro lineup. sure it'd be nice to own one with every feature possible, but it's also possible many of you that "wish you had waited" would have waited to only be offered a new camaro out of your price range.

not that my opinion matters in the mix of 15+ pages of comments, but i think the 1LE looks a little dumb. wasn't it the ricers who initially started the whole "let's paint one of our body panels a different color than the rest of the car" trend? and black wheels are generally disgusting if you ask me. the only thing discouraging about this article to me, a happy 2012 owner, is that i can afford the 2013 upgrade such as the head unit and would have preferred that over my 2012's configuration. but the 1LE itself isn't doing anything for me.
If you read the original OP - the 1LE "package" is added to an 1SS or 2SS base model - manual only. hope this helps

I'm daydreaming now about the 1LE with a LS7 in it!

I would have a garage full of Camaro's

I doubt it since the HVAC knobs are still visible. Gives a little hope to people who want to put the head unit in a 10-12

Looks pretty and all, but I'd rather have more power. It would make more sense to save all that money and mod my SS. GM really needs to step up their game if they want to compete with Ford. Sad, but true.

Blacked out hoods were common in the old Trans Am racing series. They were painted flat black to cut down the glare coming from the large hood.

I love the "never done". That to me reads..."Z/28".

I personally think the 1LE is bad a$$. I am guessing that it surprises many people once track times are known....especially people that own a Boss.

Thanks for all the responses fbod...I hope you take some type of sedative before you log on.
