Question Did you order your 1LE or buy from dealer stock?

I have been wondering whether more 1LE owners ordered the 1LE or bought it off the dealer showroom/lot. Over the past 7 months I was looking in the Seattle area and only one ever was available to purchase from the showroom in that time period and I bought it 4 weeks ago. It also seems the 1LE is more limited than the ZL1 which I find in stock at most Chevy dealers here.

Judging from how many I see on the streets of San Diego there aren't as many 1LE's as there are ZL1's. I've only seen 1-2 1LE on the road since I bought my 1SS last year.

I ordered mine back in August and ended up with second week of 1LE production (10/22 TPW.). So far, mine seems to be the only one in town... So far.

Don't mean to intrude, but this is a really good question, think I'm going to wait a couple of days and ask the same question of ZL1's on that forum.

I don't really know the in's of the car business, but how many 1LE's is a dealer going to order without a buyer lined up. Personally, if I was shopping for a SS and didn't know about the 1LE and walked into a dealership and saw a 1LE I would suddenly be very interested in that car. Quite in fact honestly I love to have one sitting next to my ZL1, seriously, swap out every other day, but I'm too poor for that kind of nonsense

I sold my Roush Mustang, and wanted a Camaro, was going to buy a 2SS, but ran on to the 1LE at a dealer in Springfield, MO, and started looking at pricing and availability while completing the deal on selling my Roush. When I started looking, there were plenty available, and I could get them at dealer invoice everywhere. Then two weeks later, when the deal on the Roush finally went down, they were all sold, or the dealers that had them raised their prices. I know, supply and demand. I went to my local dealer and he didn't have any 1LEs, but offered to dealer trade with a dealer in El Reno OK a Zl1 for one of the 3 1LEs they had, but they refused to trade, saying they had too much local retail interest to give one up. Two days later they called and went ahead and made the deal with my local dealer, which I got at invoice, less the 1k rebate, and the 1k private offer I got off this forum, less my GM card earnings of $1130, and I got the car right away equipped just like I wanted, except I got stuck with that stupid embroidered console lid for $240. Overall, I'm very happy to have found the color (Victory Red--2nd choice after white) I could live with, the options I wanted, and immediate delivery.

I've been keeping an I out for a 1LE at a dealer for a couple months, the closest one available was a two hour drive. Three Mondays ago, my dealer called and offered to upgrade me from my 2010 1SS to a 2013 2SS at the same monthly payments. I did too much to my 2010 this spring that I would lose more than I would gain. That night I was cruising my businesses and my dealer had just received a Victory Red 1LE, still with the plastic on it. I called the next day to see if it was ordered or available. I showed up Tuesday afternoon and traded the 2010 for this awesome machine. It's not the same monthly payment, but worth the $50 more per month and a lower interest rate.

Off the lot, but had been tracking it to the dealer. Dealer had it less than 24 hours. Seemed like it was March before they hit the lots around here (ATL is a big metro area)

Saw five others in one day including three VR that Chevy uses for hot laps.

I will be ordering mine soon. Possibly tomorrow. I have not seen a single on here in south Florida and just a couple of ZL1s. No 1LEs on any lots that I have seen.

Well I drove from Madison WI over to Woodhaven MI to get my VR 1LE because there was only one 1LE I could find listed at any dealers in WI and it was a black one. I didn't want black. I wanted a VR one and Becky at Rodger's Chevrolet had almost one of every color available in 1LE's. And for me the VR 1LE she had was EXACTLY the way I would have built my 1LE if I would have ordered it myself. So I made the drive to buy from dealer stock but it felt like she ordered it just for me anyhow!!

I got mine through Becky at Rodgers Chevrolet also and it was the the exact way I wanted it built. Summit white 1SS with a backup camera plus the dual mode exhaust. So buying from the dealership worked out perfect for me.

I oredered mine back in Dec. finally went to TPW 2/4 and was born on 2/6. Mine is the only on I have seen in my area. When I went to order mine I had to tell the sales person what a 1LE was. SMH. They didnt know what I was talking about till I showed them the build sheet I did online and brought to them. After we ordered it they asked me if I wanted to become a sales person.

I ordered mine, am part of the 4/15 TPW week, and still do not have my car, and doubt it ships for a week or so. I turned down cars with the NPP because I did not want it, and almost wish I had got one, and killed the system. In a nutshell, I ordered, but now wish I had not!

Kinda sorta both. I found my 1LE listed in my dealer's inventory online, but when I called about it they hadn't actually received the car yet. I went to the dealership and made the deal. Unfortunately the car got hung up in the "quality control" hold due to tires and I ended up waiting about 6 weeks to pick up the car. I got to experience the wait of an order even though I bought from "inventory".

My 1LE was the only one I could find in OC...everyone had the 1SS or 2SS...barely any manual trannys...

The dealer had this in the back lot and had just got it in...as soon as I saw it I knew that was the car I wanted...driving it was merely a formality...

Keep the comments coming everyone. It is really interesting to hear your stories and find the various ways we have acquired our 1LEs

My dealership had to locate mine for me. There were 2 within a 300 mile radius and luckily one of them was the color I wanted (Inferno Orange). Mine was only on the lot a few weeks and had 14 miles on it. They sent the oldest man (70's) at the dealership to go and pick it up!

Considering most dealers don't even know what it is, it's not surprising that there aren't more available. In any case, mine was pulled from dealer stock (before they even received it).

I live in Kansas City area and my dealer brought one from a lot in Tennessee. Had it hauled here with 16 miles on it. I was very specific on color (orange) and options so it was the only option other than ordering. I love it so far.
