Glad they are helping you out. As long as you aren't getting slammed on the deal then get what you want. You have a sweet ride already and there is no vert 1LE. You could add 3.91 gears to your current ride and few other mods to make it a 1LE vert.

I love my ZL1 and I wish my 2SS handled the same way. I'd trade my 2SS for one with 1LE.

I say upgrade to a new one. This way its an actual 1LE with papers.

I'm building my 2013 2SS/RS into a 1LE though for track upgrades. My wife won the debate on an automatic which the 1LE does not offer. I wish I could say it was a 1LE still. However, I'm beefing it up with a Lingenfelter Package so this will have it's own name to it anyhow. Haven't decided on the 550 or 650HP yet.

I'd keep the convertible myself. Because the visual "cool" factor on it is considerably higher than a 1LE with a ugly hood wrap.

Wet carpet and it being in the shop most of the time ruins that "cool factor"... i actually love the look of the 1le over the convert.. i would not be switching if it wasnt for the problems.. im just afraid after the 36k warranty i am going to have to foot the bill for all repairs... not trying to be in that boat. lol..

I'm sorry...I was not aware you were having some of the typical vert issues...I would probably let it go if that were the case...then my first 1LE mod would be to unwrap it...lol. I'm glad to hear GM is willing to help you out of a problem car...and I hope your next Camaro treats you better!

Please keep in mind that MANY of us love the look of the 1LE's
