Thumbs up

Tram,

Did you end up leaving them off (the tail light bezels,) or painting them black? After seeing your pics, I like them without.

Do they look right, without anything missing? I want to get those ZL1 extensions, btw; thanks for including those pics!

Thanks,

Tara

I plastidipped them black. I have also left them off before, looks a little unfinished up close but killer from a distance.

Phenomenal handling.... I ride a Harley and seek out twisting and turning "motorcycle" roads. These are now 1LE roads!!

Cool. It's exciting to be close to ordering. I'm about one month from being financially ready to order a 1LE. After that I will be waiting to see what the 2014s will bring. Hope I don't have to wait too long for solid info.

But as soon as this test is over with, ill be out there a lot. The owner and manager keep bugging me about it too.

You know you dont have to pay till it comes in . I technically didnt have the entire down payment when I ordered mine, but it wasnt a big deal. Most dealers either want 1,000 down or nothing down to order.


TRUST me, waiting for this car to be built was one of the hardest things Ive ever had to live through. Doesnt seem bad looking back at it, but god the 2 months or w/e was an eternity. You never know what delays there may be too in production or shipping. And the 1LE's have to go off site for the hood black out, so thats another 2 days or so.

You could do this mod without taking the bumper off but I was installing my LED reverse lights, so it made it easier. They fit very well.



Check out the connections to the duel mode exhaust.



Question... when my SS 1LE comes in, i plan on getting the ZL1 splash guards like you have, along with the ZL1 diffuser which wraps around the entire bumper. when installing them, does it require me to drill any holes? or does it snap right in with a few clips?
