2012 production is over as stated above. Who is "they"? That kind of retrofit would be ridiculously expensive...

I am gonna say no. If you knew what all elements the 1LE consisted of you'd be surprised. It's more than a few suspension pieces..

Do you realize how much it will cost you to retrofit?

maybe I should be more clear.

No GM dealer is going to retrofit your SS to a 1LE. It would require replacing/adding/retooling so many parts the cost would be prohibitive. Half shafts, dampers, gears, toe links, a new transmission (1LE is liquid cooled), adding fuel pickups, etc etc etc... Just to name a few things. Maybe you could do it aftermarket but it'd be far, far cheaper to just buy a '13 1LE.

Do you just want the black hood wrap?????

The 1LE has..
A different transmission with additional cooling and gearing
Dampers
Different Fuel pump and fuel pickups
Flat bottom steering wheel with microfiber on wheel and shift knob
ZL1 forged wheels
ZL1 toe links
Upgraded half shafts probably off the ZL1
Monotube shocks
Thicker stablizer bars
Different wheel bearings
Tower to Tower brace

You are talking about lots of time and $$$ to try to install all that to a 2012

True, the differences between 12 and 13 ss models is minimal. The reason it is cost prohibitive to do a 12 1LE retrofit is because it is a lot of different parts. At the factory, it is easy to build a 1le from scratch, much more expensive to remove the existing parts that have already been built into a 12 and replace then with the 1le parts. That is why everyone is saying if you want a 1le, just buy a 13.

Yes but 2013 is the first year they offered it. You can add the package to either a 1ss or 2ss but it needs to be ordered before the car is built. Its not a dealer installed package and can't be added to a car that's already been built without it.

You'd have to buy all the pieces yourself and have them installed which would be stupidly expensive. Anything can be done for the right amount of money, but its not gonna be as easy as dropping your car off at the dealer. Sorry.

And the zl1 front splitter, a 3.91 rear gear, matte hood wrap, black rear spoiler, supercup G2 tires, electric power steering, etc.

Considering you didn't even know what the 1LE entailed and were simply going by pictures, perhaps you just want the black hood and wheels? Paint the hood flat black (no clear coat so I suggest you keep it out of the elements as much as possible) and buy the black ZL1 wheels. Adding all the performance mods is going to cost you a fortune, along with another fortune to have them installed.
