My name is Daniel and I am from the northwest of Germany.
I'd like to show you my real LOVE and also how everything started.
But before I get started with my personal story, I'd like to tell you about my modifications I did so far:
- Lioyd floor mats with CAMARO SS stitchery
- Cellphone cup holder cover (custom-made by Blacky)
- Aluminum Autobot Logo for the trunk (self-made)
- Leather cover coat for the handbrake (custom-made)
- Footwell LED-RGB
- Door-Kick-Plates (custom-made by a friend)
- Scanner Mail Slot (Knight Lights UK)
- Spacers from H&R (just need them for my original Camaro wheels)
- Bow-tie foiling in red/black (self-made)
- Magnaflow Competion Series, Axle Back Exhaust
- Afterburner SMD LED's (AAC)
- H&R lowering springs (already replaced with...)
- KW V3 coil-over (sport suspension)
- Colored Angel-Eyes, RGB LED, (by Blacky)
- 22", 3-piece, forged Bespoke Wheels, front: 9x22", back: 10,5x22"
- Wheels: Vredestein Ultra Sessanta, front: 265/30R22, back: 295/25R22
- T4 Splitter (ASC), black painted
Like for many of you, my story has also been begun 4 years ago in the movie theater. My eyes popped out like this when I saw the all new Bee after transforming and I just fall completely in love!
Back home, the first thing I did was going on the internet to find as many information about Bee as I could. I found out that GM was planning to sell the car in Europe as well. But at that time, they didn't know when. Maybe in 1, maybe in 2, maybe in 3 years.
That was much to long. Maybe 1-3 years??? No way!
So I decided to import the Bee with the help of an importer for US cars.
And then everything went very fast. I ordered my Bee in the version:
Camaro 2SS/RS shifter in black, with an orange/black trim and a sunroof
Just 6 weeks later my Bee arrived in Germany.
The first changes have been made before I picked him up:
1. Lowering Springs (30mm) from H&R
2. Spacers (25 mm) from H&R
And then, after 7 weeks of waiting, it was the time to pick him up
It was so overwhelming. There he finally was...my Bee...my LOVE
And this is one of the first pic's with my Bee.

Back home with Bee, I installed my red Scanner from KnightLights UK.
I ordered the scanner right after ordering Bee, so the scanner was already waiting for getting installed
This was a really MUST HAVE for me. And this is how it looks like:

I was always wondering where to go with my cellphone. I wanted to place it very close to me, so that I could use my navigation system on it. I talked to a good friend of me (Blacky) and he designed this cool cup cover. For a good look I painted it black black and placed the original SS letters on it.

As a big Transformer-Fan, I wanted to place some Autobot signs on my Bee. I was thinking about ordering some signs on the internet. But then I thought, hey, just do it yourself.
I took some Aluminium panels, cut the edges to the Autobot shape and powder coated the black lines at work by myself. I placed it into the trunk lid on the safety sign.
And this is how it looks like.

I didn't like the golden look of the Bow-tie's and decided to foil them in black and red by myself. I also had to add something on the back side of my license plate. Because of the german license plate shape, you could see the holes for the bigger US license plate. My solution was this black sheet with:

Afterburner Taillights SMD and self made LED Lights for the turn signal.
I loved the look of the AAC Afterburner Taillights and wanted to install them.However, I found the side-marker from ACC a little bit too bright and therefore a friend of mine helped me with producing a darker version of the side marker and turn signal lights. So here are some pics from the modification:

Door Kick Plates
I always found the place under the door-speakers very empty.
A friend of mine made this for me by himself. It's a laser cut stainless steel sheet.
I really love the new look.
