So, I too am in that quandary as I contemplate what to do if they total my Camaro. I am leaning toward another 1le, another Corvette or another 2SS.
Happy wife, happy life.
Get another 2SS.

The seats, the ride and the manual trans.

+1

Also think a year or two down the road when you need to sell her the supercharger, headers, exhaust and whatnot

Stiffer springs, stiffer sway bars, along with other suspension pieces equal stiffer ride.

It is the way I like it adjusted. I think it rides softer than my 2SS when set on the touring mode. I always adjusted it to the softer modes when my wife was in it, but that was after she had formed an opinion that it rode like a truck...lol.

Mine does as well. 2SS on the 1LE wasn't available until 2019 I believe.

2SS 1LE was introduced in the middle of 2018 production, right before they discontinued Arctic Blue Metallic.

That made a 2SS ABM 1LE kind of a unicorn that I don't know ever got produced.

There were a handful of ABM 2SS 1LEs made. We got one of them.

Definitely the 1LE for me . . .2ss was not an option. I wanted the MRC, wide tires, and manual 6. But handling aside, the 1LE has it all as far as appearance, the wheels, with the flashy brembos (that everyone copies), the spoiler / splitter, and black hood (that many copy). I'll take that over bose speakers and heated seats.
