Heritage Grill

Guys,
Just wanted your opinion on the Heritage Grill. or $275.00 you can get a different look from the front. Does anyone know if it for the top and bottom or just the top part. Anybody get it and did dealer install?

I will be getting it but it as soon as it becomes available. It is for the top part only. Take a look a Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s car for a picture.

YES ! This grill SERIOUSLY improves the look of the front, while retaining a factory look! I will be buying this for Nikki's car as soon as it comes out!

Yea I am waiting on the grille, headers, exhaust, subwoofer, hurst shifter, and airbox. However, I am definitely not complaining. It gives me time to save up for it. It will be about $5000 with labor.

http://www.gmpartsdirect.com offers the Heritage Grill part # 92208704 at $200.20 discounted from the List price of $275.00 - its not available from them yet but you can email their customer service customerservice@gmpartsdirect.com to see about availability - tell them your a camaro5.com member - they've been most responsive to our inquiries.

I saw the Dale Jr. Camaro at the Pocono 500 - I like the Heritage Grill but will not go for it (yet), I thought the dove tail spoiler was more impressive on the car...

Image is from gmpartsdirect.com website - enter the part # to get to the page for the Heritage Grill...

I'm absolutely getting it for mine. IMO it's the grille that should have come with the car.

I'm actually glad that the heritage grill didn't come with the car. It's a good way to tell who is and isn't a real Camaro enthusiast!

I don't think that's a fair comment.

So if I don't like that Heritage grill and spend the bucks on it that means I am not an enthusiast? That is kind of a lame statement isnt it?
I think it takes a bit more then a 200 dollar grill to prove who is what....

but hey I think an enthusiast would of ordered their camaro a LONG time ago.... like.. back in October 2008..... I think that makes me an enthusiast... with or without the grill.......

Wow, a bit defensive aren't we?

I didn't mean to offend, I honestly didn't think anyone would take my comment so seriously.

Hows this then ..

I personally think the stock grill on the 2010 Camaro looks awkward and is in no way reminiscent of the car's "heritage". I think most enthusiasts would do SOMETHING with that grill, whether that means replacing it with the GMPP Heritage grill, or another aftermarket grill like the billet ones that defenderworkx is producing, or even something else down the line. There are alternatives, don't get me wrong!

I was suggesting that people who don't care about the cars lineage would likely do something a bit less tasteful.

I just don't think that big black plastic rectangles look good on the front of this beautiful car. Especially when GM offers an alternative that is far more fitting.

Also, to your comment about ordering in October .. I really don't see the relevance. I'm sure there are plenty of people who didn't order in October who love the Camaro just as much as you do. Maybe there was a reason they didn't (or couldn't).

That is just my opinion. If you like the look of the stock grill then you're entitled to your opinion as well.

its all good.....by me stating the October order date I was just trying to show you that the term "enthusiast can mean many different things.... I love my Camaro, and plan to do some mods to her as I desire........

Me defensive? maybe, but I was just trying to counteract your point...
