i swear only 31, 27,35, and 21 are the only parts that are different. This is not including the lower fogs

can already see mustang fan-boys in their 5.0's, c5 z06 owners etc saying the beat Zl1's on the street. It annoys me when people put other model body panels on their car. a kid down here has a GT500 body kit on his 4.0L V6 and cobra badges

That being said im sure it'll look good.

See, it's the badges thing that pisses me off. IMO swapping front fascias is just another cosmetic mod.

And #9 then all the hardware, now lets go to the lights you use your DRL's and need the fog's, and then the wiring harness, and don't forget the bumper.

I'm sure there will be plenty of that already on real ZL1s... Until the car can fully drive itself, winning still partly depends on the driver.

I thought about it a lot and decided that if the ZL1 bumper became available I would consider swapping them out but KEEP the RS badge. (I also considered the SS facia as well at one point, also keeping the RS badge.)

To me what bumper is on your car dosent really matter as long as you dont ADVERTISE IT AS SOMETHING IT IS NOT. Yes at a glance some might think its a ZL1 and call you out for it but its your car not theirs. My camaro was born a V6 and I will never tell or try to convince someone it isnt by putting a SS/ZL1 badge on it, But I honestly dont see the harm in spicing up the look of your car by putting a different bumper on it, especially when its a bumper as good looking as this.

Say what you will but thats my two cents, and given the opportunity I will be putting this on my car. To the rest of those doing the same, rock on.
I totally agree!

Not to mention, there are VERY FEW options for aftermarket bumpers out there.

The ZL1 bumper looks FANTASTIC, I would love to have it on our V6!

I wouldn't DREAM of putting a ZL1 Badge on it though. I probably wouldn't put the ZL1 hood on either! (even though it looks great too)

Keep in mind everyone that there is more to the ZL1 than just the bumper, there is also the VERY distinguishable hood, all the badging, the exhaust and body-kit.

If this bumper does fit properly on the V6, I'm pretty sure I'm going to get it.

It isn't my intention to confuse people, I just want the car to look more bad-ass and unique!

Oh, I'm also planning on supercharging soon, so the car should have some bite to match it's bark!

Heck you don't need a ZL1 front bumper! There's probably not a ton of camaros in Italy, unless I'm wrong....
Regardless, your camaro looks cool as is!
