I actually went to my dealer to purchase a ZL1 that was in stock.

My salesman told me about a 1LE that had just arrived and I test drove the car...that was all she wrote. Now, the 1LE is is my garage and the ZL1 is still sitting at the dealership.

I was actually looking for a Hot Wheels version to begin with but all they had in stock in this area was the V6 version and I wanted a V8. I decided to go to the dealership on my lunch break one day to see if we could work out some numbers and get one ordered for me.

After a little working the numbers the guy suggested I take a look at the 1LE they had on the showroom. We talked about it and looked at it and then went back to his office. He worked out some numbers and it was a much better deal than the Hot Wheels version so I left for lunch with one car and came back with another and I'm glad I did.

Now that is proper prior planning. What mods are you installing immediately?

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
A dealer will easily order 1-2 1LEs. I've seen that amount on many dealers. Quite a few dealers still have them on the lots.

My story is completely opposite. I bought a 1LE had it for a few weeks, test drive a ZL1 and realized I made a mistake. Lol. ZL1 was bought and 1LE was traded in with 488 miles on the speedo.

I was ready to buy mine and found one at a dealer in Austin. I emailed the sales dept. and they told me they still had it, but I was out of town and told them I would come down that Saturday when I got back in town. Well it wasn't 3 hours later he emailed me back and told me another sales man just sold it. Then a day later another chevy dealer in Austin got in a black 1LE and I didn't want to jinks myself again and I do not call just waited till I got back in on Saturday and went to the dealer and there it was still for sale. And it's all mine now very happy with my choice.

I bought mine from dealer stock... Almost exactly as I would've ordered it. The only option it had that I probably wouldn't have ordered was the back up camera. Now that I have it... I definitely would've been missing out. As a dd, makes parking simple.

I always have to order my Gen 5 Camaros. LOADED up 1SS coupes without a sunroof. I don't care for leather cause it's too hot in Houston. I always order every single option except 2SS and sunroof.

Lol!

I did the same thing in '07 when I bought a Corvette Z51, then traded it w/726 miles for a loaded Z06!

My wife still thinks I'm nuts
