The ZLE differs in quite a few different ways in key areas. Not that it amounts to much on public roads driving in typical conditions. But, that's not why you buy the ZLE, right?

The ZLE has stiffer rear spring rates. 3x's stiffer actually.
The ZLE has light rear glass. 1.2mm thinner.
The ZLE has a different front grill, allowing 106 CFM more air flow.
The ZLE has smaller, lighter, and stronger rims. 3.3#'s per corner lighter.
The ZLE has wider tires on all 4 corners. 305 vs 285 front. 325 vs 305 rear.
The ZLE has a shorter 6th gear - 0.54:1 vs 0.68:1
The ZLE is 60# lighter overall vehicle weight.
The ZLE uses DSSV coil over spool valve dampers vs Magnetic ride controlled shocks. This allows for adjustable front ride height, also.
The ZLE uses direct mounted rear cradle onto aluminum pucks versus rubber bushings.
The ZLE uses adjustable front camber plates and adjustable rear stabilizer bar.
The ZLE uses an exposed weave carbon-fiber rear wing and front fascia canards. When combined, they add 300 lbs. of downforce at 150 mph.

These are most of the significant differences. The problem I see with just adding some of these features to a car and simply driving it down the highway is there is this sense that you set the car up to be a poser. These features on the ZLE were added with purpose and part of a complete system to work together in unison to bring about a specific result, ie; faster lap times around a track. Nothing more. I'm curious as to what you would say to someone who comments on your ZL1 1LE? Do you mention it isn't really one?

I totally agree with you, but i do see the difference if i have a non 1le and i start hitting the track more often and i want yo get more performance little by like. Like get full SPL suspension, 1le rear cradle bushing, then get the exterior mods and the cherry on top would be something like DSC Sport controller, with the Tractive DDA suspension.

I personally already have Apex wheels with 3R which I believe there lighter then 1le wheels, 1le rear solid bushing, I have on order full SPL rear suspension and I think for now I'm going with Vorshlag camber plates and see where that setup takes me.

Oh and also you can't say you have a 1le just because it looks like one because technically it didn't come out the line like that.

My car is still a ZL1 even if I add all of the components from the ZLE. I would simply say that it’s a ZL1 with the 1LE aero. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with adding this stuff to my car unless I go around telling everyone it’s a ZLE

Don't know why the sight of those tires looks so sick! LOL! I get mine (the same ones) installed this weekend. Took advantage of the black Friday sales. If you dont mind me asking, what you pay for those? I paid just under $1600 after rebates for mount, balance, and alignment.

Haha I love the look of these tires. This will be my first set of Michelins so I look forward to seeing how they perform. I pad $1,572 for the set through Jack Williams Tire. This deal also came with free installation. I submitted my rebate last night so Iím looking at $1,452 for everything

Car looks awesome, I would consider doing the same if I get a ZL1. Nothing at all wrong with modding YOUR car the way you want to.

Dang that's a better deal than what i paid and what i paid is the cheapest i could find anywhere else. Keep up the great work on the car man. Doesn't matter ZL1, ZLE, or ZLE clone, its still a Camaro. We all love these cars and that's what matters.
