I have the stealth ones on the front. I don't like the OEM ones, they are too big and are very visible.

Get the ZL1 ones in the rear and the stealth ones in the front. Great combo.

Ummmm... because they are ugly and "clunky" looking. However, I don't doubt they help avoid rock chips, mud, etc. I just can't put those things on such an otherwise beautiful car.

My opinion is that they serve their purpose pretty well and they don't look bad at all. To each his/her own

Edit: but I can't wait to take them off for the GFX

I had them on my 12 lt and now I have them on my 12 ss. I like them myself because of the purpose they serve. I don't think they look bad plus they protect your paint. but this is a some do and some don't like question. if you are going strictly for looks then I would say get the gfx. I

I don't have any on the Camaro. Reason was due to a set I had on my Prelude for 11 years. Did they do their job? Yes. Did they also eat into the paint over time where they attached to the body? Yes.

bottom line... which looks better: quarter flares or tons of paint chips in those areas after a couple of years????...I'll take the protection every time!
