Any interest in swapping Black Hood Insert for Exposed Carbon Fiber one?

Or where I can buy the ECF hood insert?

You will be able to get the exposed carbon fiber insert from your dealer eventually. I do not think they can order them yet.

I was originally supposed to have exposed carbon fiber insert and was forced to switch to painted in order to maintain my allocation. WHen I was forced to switch, I discussed it with my dealer and they agreed to offer me the exposed carbon fiber insert (when available) at thier cost.

Granted that will be above the $600 option cost but it was a choice I made at the time to keep my order "live".

I suggest you talk to your dealer and see if they will make you a similar offer, particularly now that GM is crediting back the $600 option cost for ECF.

My 2 cents....

There were a few people that were forced to give up the B92 option to keep their order going. It should not be too hard to find someone to swap with. But.... you might want to look at the ECF hood on your car first before you give it away. It might look better than you think. Good luck.

I'm actually happy that the carbon fiber insert will not be installed on my order, as I plan to have the hood insert painted white along with the trunck stripe! I like the inferno orange with white as opposed to black stripes!!

Sitting at 3400 as of 4/2/12, so hoping I will make the 2012 order run!!

I have two customers who wanted the ECF and had to give them up in order to keep their orders "live". I checked on the availablity in our parts department and at this point the MSRP for this is 2500. Cost is around 1500. I hope GM will step up and help out the customers who in good faith gave up the option they wanted so they could keep their cars coming. It has become a slap in the face sort of speak when the rest of the ECF hoods now come with the $600 Credit. If anyone would like to swap...PM me.

Jedi, I think he is looking to get (not give) the B92....his 2nd question was where could he buy ECF...

I completely agree with you. I have an Inferno Orange ZL1 and ordered the matte black insert. I plan to have it painted white. Are you going to have a decal stripe or have it painted on?

I plan to have chevy paint the hood insert, and trunk deck stripe. And thinking if it comes with ECF, maybe painting the cowl area around the ECF and leaving the insert ECF???

The ECF goes all the way back to the cowl edge of the hood, so there is nothing to paint on the hood (except the insert). I think it would really look nice to have a white stripe on IOM, but for the dealer to paint the car worries me a bit. I think a really good body shop could do a better job. Will need to decide if they make the stripe smooth with the IOM paint, or just paint over the IOM and deal with the ridge after applying the clearcoat.

Well one option is painting the raised "cowl" section of the hood white, around the ECF, and the other just painting the insert! I ordered vehicle in December with ECF, cause dealer said if i didn't it would hold up the order but with what I've been reading about ECF, not really sure which insert I'll get. Both inserts can be painted... So if no ECF, I would just paint the insert. With ECF, if done right, it may be cool having the white stripe outlining the insert?

And, no way to add stripe over the IOM base without the ridge... unless you apply clear coat. Jury is still out on that call right now!!

As for having Chevy do the painting... No worries if you know their work and are dealing with a good body shop! Plus warranty considerations!

I see you are in SoCal, I'm in north county SD area, you? And where are you at with status of your order?

pglorioso - I am south of LA (Palos Verdes). My car was railed to Mira Loma CA and arrived last Sunday. Six days later it remains at the yard waiting for a truck to pick it up! It is due any hour now according to Martin Chevrolet. Although I like a white stripe on IOM more than any other color combo, I am waiting to see what the ECF looks like and then will decide if I will stripe it (painting the Matte insert that came w/ car), the roof (no sunroof) and the trunk lid, or just going with the ECF hood. You could use white spears on side of ECF and white stripe it on roof & trunk - that might not look bad. What is your status?
