Dealership is trying to put me in a 1LE...help!

So I went to the dealership's parts dept today to pick up a deal on a ZL1 grille to put on my Camaro (gotta start getting ready for CamaroFest!) and started BSing with one of the sales guys about the new Camaros. Said they had one 1LE in and I mentioned that I hadn't had a chance to check one out yet. As I'm leaving, he pulls up in it and said "let's have some fun...". It's black on black and has the MyLink with nav (I had no idea how amazing that was gonna be!). No Recaros, which *may* be a dealbreaker. I really wanted those seats.

So long story short he let me borrow it for the day (which means I'm def leaving work for the day...). He's going to get back w/ me to let me know what my GM employee pricing would be so we'll see. Still...I'm really on the fence on this. I just spent $400 to get my 2010 tuned a couple weeks ago but I really dig this black on black look. Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful. Help talk me out of this!

Even though I have decided to not buy any more black cars, I would still buy that. As long as it was under $40k otd

You won't get any help from me, I like my 1LE more than any car I have owned with the possible exception of my '69 Camaro. I have not sit in the Recaro seats so I can't say that the lack of the seats would be a deal breaker either. Good luck with your decision, I think that a day with the car will make it very hard to turn it down.

Make him work for it, show mild interest but no intent on buying right now. They will come looking for you.

At a stoplight...I feel like such a badass right now. Grinning like a schoolgirl which is strange considering it has less power than my 2010. Still...it's real nice

I will help talk you out of it... IT DOESN'T HAVE THE RECARO'S WHICH YOU -REALLY- WANT!

There, did that work?


Ok, Good! Now go to the Chevy dealer down the street and buy the one that does, because the 1LE is totally worth it!

I have the Recaros in mine and they are worth having with out a doubt. Infact they were a must for me.
As for pricing, my 1LE had a sticker of over $47,000. Getting it for $40,000 wasn't going to happen. We really need to know ALL the options this one has to help you on pricing.
They come wildly optioned across the board.

lol guess I really did come to the wrong place to be talked out of it!

@SSTG - Good call about the options. This one is a 2SS with the 1LE pkg ($3500), RS ($1350), and nav ($795). Total vehicle & options on the sticker is $42,500.

I'm really impressed w/ the 2014's handling. She definitely wants to carve the canyons. On the flip side, I really (*really*) liked the idea of those Recaros. I guess I can see what kind of offer they'll make and go from there but so far this car has definitely got my attention. I'm scouring through eBay right now to try to iron out some standard of pricing.

If I were to pass on this particular car and decided to order one to my exact specs, what kind of lead time is to be expected? I'm not familiar with the new car process. Does the 1LE or Recaro package result in any longer of a delay for the process?

Oh dang, I just remembered that there's a randomly generated $1k credit that you can get from GM's website randomly too. Crap. They're making it too tempting!

This is from a guy who hasn't driven or even seen a 1LE on the road.

But from what I have seen and read on here, for an add-on of $3500, the 1LE package is an awesome deal. I also think the 1LE appearance looks much meaner than a non-1LE.

Does it feel better than your 2010 with coilovers (and other mods)?

I know it's ridiculously expensive to buy/install all of the 1LE upgrades (tranny and wheels seem to be most expensive from what I recall), making it cheaper to buy the 1LE if you really want EVERYTHING, but couldn't you surpass the 1LE performance with mods if you are patient?

I wish my dealer would tempt me the same way so I could find out myself.

Good Luck!

I love my black 1LE! I said I'd never buy black but I seen this and put money down before seeing it in person.

One of those things I'll buy one sometime soon so might as well look around. Always a bad idea, although I did the same with my house but was lookin online for about a year until I went with financing and seriously started looking.

You can't "order" a 1LE until mid Feb.
I would recommend atleast doing this. Find one with Recaros and drive it.
If you can live without the feel and looks you'll save yourself a couple grand.

But, I look at it this way, the Recaros will be a big plus for resale on these in the future.

Hmm, well first off its a 2014 not a 2010. I really dislike the styling differences, ugly taillights squished frontend ect.

Second think about how much you can put into the SS that you would save not buying the 1LE, could build a lot more car for the extra money you would spend.

Yea, the black vinyl and wheels look nice, but for about 2grand you could do that if you wanted to.

If you already have an SS, I see no benefit to trading it in on a 1LE. If I were buying a new camaro straight out, then possibly the 1LE would be a good idea. Remember, its not a model, its just a package and its not limited. If you really want to trade up you might as well take the jump to a ZL1.

Just remember 6th gen will probably be available in a little over a year. I'm waiting for that. I'd say just keep what you have, not worth losing your ass on trade in.

I traded my Modded SS for a 1LE and happy with the upgrade. I worked over the dealer. I did not steal the 1LE, but I did get a fair deal with my persistance. 1LEs are slower at the drag strip, but more fun to drive, and kill on a road course.

Remember though, the 1LE ride is a bit rougher.

96SS10SS - Does it feel better than my 2010 with coilovers? Tough to explain. They both handle great, but approach their handling characteristics in a different way. The coilovers give me the flexibility to really dial it in, but the 1LE really exposes the limitations of the other components (toelinks, control arms, etc etc) in their older design. The improvements are really noticable. With the 1LE, it's more of a point and shoot...by that I mean it gives you a better driver confidence...going where you want it to and asks for more. In comparison, my 2010, while still capable, takes more effort/finesse to control. Could I surpass the 1LE? Sure...the aftermarket has a ton of options...just takes time and (a lot more) money. But it'll still have the weaknesses that have been addressed in the last two generations of suspension designs since 2010. Gotta hand it to GM, they really made a solid case of shying away from the aftermarket here. This car's got muscle and control...all with a factory warranty.

Green Machine - I always said the same thing...black was not gonna be ok. But seeing this one in person...the only word that comes to mind: Sinister.
