Gfx on my 1le

So my dealer installed this kit on my car and the more I read about my 1le the more I am tempted to strip her down and put her back to her stock form. Does anyone know what's under the front chin spoiler on the gfx kit? Is my 1le splitter under there or will I need to buy a new one?

You would need to get the factory side skirts, the 1le splitter, and I believe the rear lower fascia. Not sure how the rear kit was put on either bolted or taped.

I saw a 1le at my dealer with the ground effects and it was shipped with no splitter and the side where not on the car, so you should be able to pull those off and pop in the new ones with no issue.

That is how mine was shipped with the gfx kit that the dealer installed once they got the car. At least that's what they told me when I called to ask about the original parts.

If the ground effects kit is on the window sticker then that is the way the dealer ordered it, so then you do not have the NPP exhaust. The factory leaves the original side skirts off when the ground effects kit is ordered.

Exactly. I am wanting to run the NPP or an aftermarket corsa dual tip exhaust. But I can't do that with the gfx kit installed.

The 1LE cannot be ordered with gfx. The dealer has the original sides and splitter. Or sold them off. Either way, technically they owe them to you.

Interesting OP. Let us know what happens with the dealer. If you get the gfx off you can sell them. If you are switching out the rockers and diffuser anyway, you can pick up the ZL1 parts pretty cheap, but then you will need quad tips. Along with the 1LE splitter this is a nice combo.

But, if all this does not work out for you, your 1LE is still full of 1LE goodness and will run with the rest of them. And you will have a very unique 1LE. Don't listen to the haters. Enjoy your new car. It is very special.

Unfortunately the 1le can be ordered with the gfx package cause it is on my window sticker and on my build sheet.

Take a quick look around the forums and try the search button because a few members have ran duals on their gfx. It looks reallllllllllly good too. I think Apex has the right tips for it.

The gfx kit is a factory order item which comes to the dealer separate of the car and the dealer installs it. The top of the rear fascia is held on with, basically, double sided sticky tape and the bottom is bolted in place. The front, I’m told, goes over the existing splitter. I don’t know for fact about the front but my rear is being replaced under warranty because it was installed incorrectly by the dealer and is cracking on the corner where it hooks into the wheel well on the passenger side.

Dual tips “should” be able to be put in there but I would think if they are tight you’ll end up with rattles and warpage/heat damage to the fascia. I’m looking at pulling ss(Stainless Steel) boxes off of mine, TIG’ing on an overlap type deal on the back and making it so the exhaust pipe basically fits inside the ss box at the rear. That way the pipe/box never touch, and the box looks like one large ss exit without the stupid look of someone pounded the round peg into the square hole.




As far as the dealer “owing” someone parts to replace the $2500 parts they ordered is crazy. Even Wal-mart would look at you sideways on that one. I’m glad I’m not your dealer…

When I say "...replace parts the ordered..." I'm talking about that would be the same as ordering a car with the optional V8 and then going back to them and saying you'd like the standard V6 they "owe" you.

Changing out a motor vs changing out an exterior body piece are not the same IMO. I think to create another side of the argument, it would be like buying something aftermarket and having to give them the O.E. in exchange. Since the original rockers and diffuser was installed at the factory, those pieces should be available to the owner in the situation that he/she wants to go back to stock from the ordered GFX. Simple logic.

Exactly! You are paying for two sets of parts in this instance. Much like the dealer installed 21" wheels. You should get the original 20" wheels but most don't. The dealers know they can sell the extra parts for a few extra dollars on the sale.

The car is shipped with the side skirts removed. Makes it easier for the dealer to paint and put on. Your car should be a rare one one being I know of three now with the gfx.

Front GFX has a bunch of holes drilled on the lower portion to rivet brackets in place to hold the splitter in place, unless the bracket are re useable for the 1LE splitter which im pretty sure they are not well your screwed.

If the vehicle was ordered with GFX, GM ships the whole GFX kit to the dealer and the car is ships without the side skirts, everything else is still there, front bumper, rear bumper and all corresponding parts.

But do they ship a front splitter in that instance? The 1LE splitter is also installed at the dealer.

The car I saw had the splitter in it. There was a long box in it. Can't think what else it could have been.

I just had my front end fixed due to a bad run in with a tall curb....Long story. Anyway, the body shop ended up having to call GM and mess around a lot before things got straight on what's what. The rubber fascia, according to GM, is a ZL1 fascia. I laughed in the guys face and told him he's dead wrong, but if he wanted to put a Zl1 fascia on there he could feel free. The fascia is basically the same as the normal SS and there are 50 "specialized" rivets which attach the ABS plastic splitter to it. The new OEM fascia cost $460 while the solid ABS plastic splitter cost over $1260! That's almost half the cost of the ground effects kit all together installed! Trying to take yours off would be very bad. The fascia under it isn't even the same as a normal 1LE's fascia. Personally, I like the way they both look but there's one other 1LE at work and I can park next to his and mine it the one which gets all of the attention. You paid for it, love it!

Oh ya. I was able to talk to the GM rep the body shop got their information from and he was telling me 1LE's which are ordered with the ground effects kit from the factory NEVER get the "normal" 1LE splitter or fascia. So the dealer didn't screw anyone out of anything, it never had it to begin with.

OP you may have the most unique 1LE. 1 of 1. Has anyone seen another? Although there was one shipped without the hood wrap I believe.
