I ordered them when I ordered the car from the dealer, they are paint matched and dealer installed. Thanks for all the compliments every one.

I'm with the "want to modify and personalize" group! That is also why I am the last 9/5'er waiting. I should get her before Christmas!!! The wife wants her to get here so I can put the additional mods that are stacking up at the house on her! And YES...I would love a matching car cover!!! I have been told that it is getting harder just to walk through the house. LOL Here are a few of the pics I got sent to keep me occupied...

Earthshaker, glad to see another highly modded 'vert!!! Very cool indeed, I bet you can't wait to get her in time for christmas!

I can't even begin to imagine what she'll drive like with those mods!

What about adding gfx and a different spoiler - does THAT mean you no longer have a 45th?

What a moron.

Exflirt's 45th is her version of what the 45th should have looked like as well as a tribute to her 35th she had.
Her car was the only 45th at SEMA this year and all the Chevy brass came over to see it. All of them loved it, and a few mentioned they liked her version of the reversed colors better than the stock version, it made the car stand out more. When you have all the Chevrolet brass admiring the car and saying that, how can you argue with them.
Exflirts 45th is much closer to what the 45th should have been from Chevy.
Not knocking the stock 45th, but its very conservative. It should have been bolder, it should have more pop to it, it should have had a more look at me look to it, Exflirt succeeded with her version.
It is still a 45th, a unique and extremely good looking version, one that commands the attention a 45th should.
you have a bunch of stickers on it, you removed and replaced the 45th rims, and you have inverted the color of the stock stripes and added a bit more to them. do you think it looks like a 45th anymore? i really don't see how you can say it does. if i saw it on the road i would not know it was a 45th, and that was my point. there is no reason to be so defensive. i never said anything derogatory about your car.

-Hurst Short Throw
-Sunroof

1st mod will be the skip shift eliminator. That 1st to 4th shift has got to go.

P.S. - Skip shift eliminator = done. Not a moment too soon ...

Hey there dan! Good lookin 45th there! Same options as mine with the sunroof and hurst STS. I've considered the skip shift eliminator but the 1st to 4th hardly ever comes up for me so I might not bother.

Yep, I love the car. The skip shift only comes up now and then - usually when it's not convenient. It's a simple fix, not a big deal,

I can imagine up there in NJ it's a bit colder so the skip shift comes up more often. believe me, if it happened any more than it does now (which it really doesn't ever happen) I would definitely be doing the same as you and getting the skip shift eliminator. It's only happened to me twice and both times it was annoying and pointless (for me at least).

I got mine October 22nd. I have added the Carbon Flash Metallic Splash Guards, the GMPP Track Pack exhaust and a K&N Cold Air Intake. I have the skip shift eliminator but haven't put it on yet. Next mod will be tinting the windows.

At least one advantage of having a euro model ... I don't have that skip shift

yeah what's the deal with that?? they had it on my 2000 Z28 and for those of us that live in the city, it's a huge PITA. think GM would have learned their lesson on this already. i mean you absolutely cannot be stuck in traffic with a 1-4 shift option only. it simply does not work. idiots!

random question...has anyone or can anyone pull their car into the sun where it is shining on the side of the car and look to see if the paint appears to have different shades to it? i swear my driver's side door looks like it has a faint hue change every 6 inches...lighter, darker, lighter, darker, etc. anyone noticed this? it is extremely subtle and you'd probably have to stare for a minute or too to see it...but i'm just wondering if it is the CFM paint or if something is wrong with my door paint!

I have seen what you mean by different shades. In the sun the car gives off a few different colors. People have commented that they see blue and purple hues. However, I have noticed under the hood and between panels, where the door meets the fender or fender meets the A pillar, the paint appears to be missing a stage of the paint and has an almost tan appearance.
