PartsTaxi-Vendor on here. Just be sure to get all your hardware. I was shorted quite a few pieces but they made it good no questions asked.

That is a great setup. I'm trying to look for those ZL1 Rockers.

The diffuser was not hard to install if your used to working with your hands and common tools. It's a little scary because you do have to cut slots in the rear bumper on the sides. My car is a 2013 and I ordered it with the dual mode exhaust option so it came with those tips. I just sold my stock diffuser on here tonight.

You can find everything you need for your car right here on the forum. GarysCustom is a great source for prepainted rockers.

Did you get a template to cut the holes for the rear diffuser or did you wing it ? Also, which option did you get from Partstaxi when you ordered your rear diffuser ?

You have one of my favorite SS's I have seen. It looks so clean.
I am a little disappointed that our tastes are so similar because when I do these mods it will look like I copied you!

But your car really does look amazing. ZL1/ 1LE wheels would really set it off!

Yes I got the the template from GEN5DIY on the forum. I believe I got option 2. I have a 2013 I didn't need the absorber since mine is the same as on the ZL1. You can also modify your absorber if you have a 10 or 11. All the info is on this site. It just takes time to get all your info together.

Thanks! I'm not worried about any copycats. Heck I'm not the first that has done these mods. If it looks good to you go for it! I like the subtle but clean look. I didn't want the ZL1 front bumper because I wanted it to be different but still look tougher than a stock SS (my opinion). That's why I mixed my parts from the different models. I love the ZL1/1LE wheels but I will be getting different wheels so it still stands out from the ZL1/1LE. I do love both of those cars though. If I could've afforded a ZL1 that's what I would have!

This is by far my favourite splitter, discreet and not over the top as most splitters out there. Do you mind sharing where you got it from and how much you paid?

I got it from my dealer. It's a long story but I had them match the lowest price I found then they took off some more because they lost the dealer installed SS console cover I was supposed to have on my car. So I got it for $315

Thanks! Yea, I hated the '13 wheels when I first saw them but they have grown on me as well. I'm still going to get some aftermarket as soon as I can and drop it an inch. That will be all for the cosmetics, then it will be on to performance.
