So to avoid further damage of being shipped back and forth the seller has to go in and fill out a form giving me ownership. I assume from there they still have to pick up the damaged rims take them to their inspection location then IF they don't weasel their way out of it, get multiple quotes on having the rims repaired then pay out.

Half of me wants to say screw that whole process and just touch it up but I would rather not cut corners when it comes to my camaro.

Ugh, that sucks. Are they GM or aftermarket? I would definitely send them back, look really close on the other 2 and make sure while you are already shipping them.

Touch it up for sure it's not worth the wait , it's too small and just a paint scratch it won't even show when touched up .

EXACTLY! I was thinking that OR ACS T4 splitter. I think i will go with the T4 not just because its cheaper and has the same look but because it doesn't lower the ride hight which is a concern because of how much the springs and new rims/tires lowered the car haha. I can barely get my low profile jack under my car!

haha funny u mention that because that was one of my options im debating what to do next. Its between the deflectors, spoiler, or ported throttle body. . .

Im thinking the biggest change would be a spoiler but not sure which spoiler to go for. . .
