I have driven both the normal SS and I have the 1LE and to me it's night and day. Mine is a DD when I'm not on the bike I didn't get it to track it but it's nice to have that option if I wanna do it. I got mine more because I like being a little different and this fits the bill very well.

I love everything about the 1LE except for them forgetting to paint the hood. LOL

It's a good package but it's not worth trading your car in...

Oh haha I'm too tired to notice internet humor. Tons of people on here actually think that.

I know of at least one that came in that didn't have the wrap on the hood. I would love to have that one.

Just wait until they come out with a 2LE, then everyone will want and or wish they had that.
The only reason why I didn't go for the 1LE was that I specifically wanted an automatic. But I agree with others that its a good value for the extras.

The OP isn't wondering if the 1LE is better than the SS... clearly it is. And just as clearly if a person were buying their first Camaro the 1LE option is a no brainer, if performance is a priority. He's asking is it THAT much better to justify trading in an SS in order to upgrade.

So now the $3500 option becomes $3500 plus the depreciation on your current car... which is going to be more, possibly many more, thousands of dollars... and the answer becomes far less clear.

I personally would not do it, but that's just me.

Actually I have a 2012 SS with FE4 suspension I drive around pretty aggressively but the street is no racetrack. Obviously the 1LE will outperform on the track but if I went to a track it would probably be a drag strip.

I don't find myself wishing my car would corner or brake better on the street, if I bought one it would just be completely posing.

There's a reason it costs more than the Hurst. Wish I wasn't so cheap I might buy one.

My orange Brembos add 27 more hp than the red ones.
