I drive my 1LE year round in the NY area (just outside of NYC). So yes, it sees snow/ice. Also, since I don't have a garage, it lives life outside.

What's the problem?

White steering column was a feature of 1LE's only. You won't see it on ZL1s or non-1LE SS cars.

Old thread, I know. Sorry about that, but doing this now and am wondering if the use of ZL1 pads is a typo here? They're Z06 rotors so would imagine we'd be using Z06 pads.

You're in the 5th gen forum right now, so no one here has a ZL1 1LE. In the upper right of this site, select the drop-down menu and choose the 6th gen forum and go to their track section.

If it doesn't have 3 pedals, I won't buy it. I don't care how fast it is. I've spent a lot of time learning to properly hot-shoe 3 pedals with 2 feet, at the same time. I'm never giving that up.

If I rent, I don't get to do what I want to do. Lift, second floor with pool table, cabinets, benches, lights. I need to own this or the point is lost.

Great ZL1/1LE Shot

When I wasn't driving this Sunday, I was shooting. Not my car (I have a 2014 SS 1LE). This belongs to one of the MSNE instructors.
