that's actually just the glow of the red from all the red lights on in the gauge cluster... the camera picked it up really heavily, for some reason... its not nearly as noticeable in real life

I probably should have started the car to get some of those lights off... but didn't want to put the garage door up.

Seriously, you buy a car based on font and steering wheels?

So this morning, I got on autotrader and saw the dealer down the road had a 45TH A6 SS coupe. Immediately had to go wake the wife up, get the kids dressed, and haul ass down the street to go look at it.

The paint is awesome. It's definitely not as sparkly as you initially see it in the first pics with the promo RS unless you catch it just exactly right in the sunlight...then it takes on a heavy metallic shimmer with a nice dark gray look. Outside of direct light, the car appears black until you are right up on it which then you can see the metallic.

Wheels look sweet in person as well. Wasnt able to get in it, since the dealer was still closed (which was fine, dont like this dealer anyhow).

GM did a great job on this package. Now after seeing it in person, it makes the wait even worse! I want my car!

Turtle, exflirt...

Take a good close look at the silver on your stripes. Do they have a very small metallic finish to them or are they just a flat matte finish?

The 45TH i saw this morning has a metallic finish to it...

Anyone else notice that the model they were showing before production also had a matching waffle lower grille? Guess they really want us getting heritage grilles!

Thank god for maureen and Rogers, will probably have the grille delivered before car arrives.

Good catch on that grille... I definitely like it better than the production version, seems to match better. Wonder if its available (or will be) to purchase?

That lower grill is the production version for your car (2LT)! The SS version is the one you see in the members' photos. That's why most people who get the Heritage Grille have an SS.

Didn't realize that. Very nice to know. Getting my herritage installed this weekend. I will post pics after it's done.

I was going to do it myself, but I am not exactly handy. I would rather not end up scratching up the front end or end up snapping the grille apart mid process. That's the kind of luck I have.

I'm glad I found this thread. As I await my 2LT 45 A.E. I am trying to picture it with red side stripes, then with silver stripes (the factory hood stripe colors). I had no luck getting help on another thread so i'll copy my post below:

If you can give me it in a red stripe and silver vent inserts; and then a silver stripe with red vent inserts I would greatly appreciate it. I don't have a program to do it and I can't decide without seeing it. The vent inserts could be just a plain dash - or just forget about the vent stripes as they're not that important.

Thanks in advance.

In other words the 45th with a red side stripe, or a silver one. Maybe somebody striped theirs like either of these, or has a pic???

I figure I'd at least post with the heritage grille in here. I will work on better pics to show the stripes/paint combo, just need a better day for that. I will throw in a few others since I love the car
