Ground Effects Yes or No?

Just looking for options. I have a CGM 2SS/RS on order. I though about adding the ground effects. Let me know what you think!

Yes, if they are painted. Do not care for them when they are left unpainted.

Really your personal taste. The GMPP ground effects are nice. Lingenfelter makes some interesting pieces too.

I say get them if you can afford them. When i finally order my camaro i have decided i need to have them. But they do needed to be painted. They just make the car look better even though its seems impossible to do.

They seem like an incredible waste of money to me.

I dont like them at all.

1. Cost to much
2. Takes away from the body lines of the car
3. I think it looks crappy on a nice car like the camaro

This is my opinion

it looks retarded in my opinion.. even if u do paint them... it reminds me of a ghetto ass car that u see low lifes spicing up.... like the people who add stuff like that to the crappy ass toyota supra... waste of money in my opinion, and takes away from the classyness of such a nice car

I like them !! Think they set off the car. IMO only, to each there own, that is why we have the word custom. Good luck choosing !

If anyone was interested in doing higher speed road racing/open course racing then ground effects can add a great amount of value.

I say no. They don't add anything to the car. Use the $3k you are gonna spend on it and spend it on mods where you can REALLY enjoy it.

If you can afford to have them painted, get them. I think they look great.
