New 2013 1LE

Signed the paperwork this morning for a leftover brand new 2013 1LE. I'll share pix when I bring it home on Wednesday or Thursday. The dealer is detailing it and adding a strip package for me. Really excited to be driving a Camaro again. One question for the group - Headlights... This car did NOT come with the RS package which is ok by me as the black roof ditch molding breaks up the yellow a bit. With that said though, I love the Halo Ring type headlamps. Are there good options other than going to the parts dept and having the RS headlamps installed? Also, what do those of you who have the footwell/cup holder lighting think if it - worth it?

Thanks in advance!

Man, thought I had gone back to the future there for a minute! LOL

There are aftermarket halo kits. No idea what they cost since my 1LE is a 2SS/RS. Look around the net, you will find some. They are awesome.

As for the lighted cup holders, to me they would be one of the last mods I would worry about. There are SO many other mods you can do to these cars and make them just stand out! Save the money and put it toward rockers, stone guards, gils, clear bra, etc.

Sorry, I am just so damn excited I was typing too fast. So...2013 and Stripe package.
I love the ride, shifting, handling, etc of the 1LE over the normal SS so I bought it instead of a SS. While I might take a driving course so I can track it in the future, I am not a weekend racer (yet). I know some will cringe and say what the hell, etc, etc, etc but I had the hood wrap removed and put stripes on it. Again, sorry for the confusion with "strip and 2103" comment. Pictures soon!

Brad, thanks for the feedback on other upgrades, etc...

Looks like it is a 1SS/1LE in Rallye Yellow? If so, you are lucky! There are only 28 of our cars. Kinda cool because its a one year built car with the body change in 2014.

Nice Car!!!!

The deal was very good. $2500 rebate plus another $750. Instead of using the $750 though, I used the early turn in option to get out of the last few payments we had on a Malibu lease. It was better more me not to have "extra" car payments/insurance for the next 75 days. I also got 12%+ off of sticker (before the rebate). While not the best rate I've seen I got 2.5% financing too. I'll shop that around for a bit to see if I can get down to under 2%. In any event, this was a way better deal than my 2010 2SS. When I sold that a few years ago, I made real good money so we'll see what happens on this one in a few years. My heart was set on a C7 Vette but with one in college and another on the way to college I just didn't feel like having that payment for a "toy". Super excited to be driving a Camaro again and a 1LE which is even better.

Does it actually have the 1LE AND the Transformers package?? Either way sounds like the deal of the century. Congratulations and you know the drill.

Markgws6 - I totally agree that the thread is worthless without pictures and as soon as I pick it up, I'll post pictures. Yes, it is a 2SS 1LE with the T3 stripe package (front bumper, Hood, Roof, trunk). Not stripes on the spoiler as that is already black. Again, Pix as soon as I get it.

My dealer says one of the things they look for when they pop the hood for anyone coming in for service is an aftermarket halo kit. Apparently early editions of some kits did not play nice wiring/load-wise with stock electrics. Do your homework to make sure you're getting a kit that doesn't spawn those electric gremlins.

Picked up my 2013 1LE this evening - WOW!!! I love how much better it shifts. The exhaust note is sick and the car is much tighter than my 2010. Any tips on how to post pictures. Clearly I am doing something wrong...

Pix of my 2013 1LE

Finally! I will post more later but I am loving this car. Still in awe over how much better it is vs my 2010 and I loved that car. Really glad I got the 1LE
