My Orange Child

Bought my 2011 IOM 1LT a few days after Christmas and have finally started to make it my own. Bought an OEM spoiler already painted to match off of ebay for $86.00 and had a local body shop install it for me for $30, since the dealerships wanted close to $300 for a spoiler/paint/install...i feel i got a great deal. Tomorrow i'm taking her to get the windows tinted. Will post pictures afterward.

Welcome. IOM is a great color. Spoiler looks great. Looking forward to pics after the tint. Make sure to post tint percentages.

Just made a couple of new purchases tonight. I ordered the BlueStar bluetooth system and the AAC concept side markers. This is starting to get addicting.

IOM is definitely a good flavor! But then, I am biased! Congrats and good job on mods. It is addicting. I want to get the marker lights too. But first...wheels and painted stripes. But I have to wait because I need more bucks! All it takes is cubic cash! Lots of it. Have fun and enjoy every minute!

they are flush, one of them i pushed in too much, and i didn't' feel like taking it apart to push it out a very small amount. So on mine both front and one rear are flush, the rear one that i have a pic of is pushed in just a hair. I'm very pleased with them.

I have a 2011 1LT too. I'm considering putting the PDIM, volume controls, and the Blue star in. Are these easy to do or pretty involved?

Bluestar was easy, just take out the glovebox and 5 screws for the "roof" of the glovebox compartment, and its right there. Because i have "fat fingers" i struggle with smaller screws, but i had the on star box out and the bluestar box exchanged in about 5-10 mins.

The steering wheel controls were a bit more intensive. Look under the DIY board and there is and EXCELLENT writeup on the step by step procedures. The easiest thing to do is email patrick@gmpartshouse.com and tell him what you are wanting to do and he'll get all the parts you need. I did the steering wheel controls in about an hour. The only hangup is getting them programmed. I got mine done today, but it took two trips to the dealership. Make sure and take the GM Service Document that is referenced in the DIY thread. If you've got any more questions just shoot me a PM.
