Got ours today

Newb here from corvetteforums.com. Traded the 04 vette in today for our 2010 SS. Inferno on Black. Ground effects and engine has some matching Inferno pieces.

This car is HOT!!! Felt like the papparazzi was chasing us. People speeding up or slowing down to get on the side of us to take pictures with their phones. Anywhere we stopped people pulled up to ask about it and ask to take pictures. Wild day for sure.

The only pic I have right now is from my phone. Will get more up soon. Not sure on the mods yet but some changes will be made

Looks nice..It needs some painted black stripes and it would be amazing..Get the stripes though to go over the mail slot though if you get it painted..

Sorry for my confusion. I am pretty certain that those Ground effects came to your dealer as a Dark argent mettalic. I am assuming that they painted them for you, and put them on the car...uh, free of charge??? If so, What a great dealer...

not sure. we didnt order the car. we called the sales manager that we know at one of the dealerships and he told us he had a car. all that my wife cared was that it was a SS. We got there and thats what he had for us lol.

Okay, that tells me a lot. Thanks for the quick response... Nice car by the way. I was going to get the ground effects too. I think it adds a very nice touch to the car.

Dude, if you can, ask the dealer about the ground effects. If he painted them himself, could you ask him how much hed charge, or how much it cost him? Its a big deal to us, because as far as we know, it comes in black, so those of us that arent getting a black car want to know how much extra we will be spending. THANKS!

Awesome! Was this the one they had at 4-Stars in Henrietta? If so, I had a buddy go look at it a few days ago and he said it looked good with the ground effects.

Very nice car!

From what we know, the ground effects are supposed to come in one color, argent grey or whatever. You mentioned you got the car this way? Please provide more details as to how you got your gfx painted. And please bro... please... more pics.

This is the first time I have seen the ground effects matching, I like a lot more!

It seems like this was a "walk in". Where somebody canceled and then he was first on the "call me if there is a spare SS" list lol. I'm guessing this is what the original person had ordered.

Gorgeous car, congrats!

Thumbs up

NICE LOOKING CAR!!!
I was wondering about getting the ground effects kit myself and would have them painted to color match the car, IOM.
When you get a chance, I know people are bugging you, but when you get a chance, can you please post more pics of the ground effects all the way around the car?
I would really appreciate it. THANK YOU!!
Good luck with the new car.
