Poll: Sound System or ZL1 Bumper

What should I do next? I will definitely be doing both of these in the future but what should I do first? I have an opportunity to get a $1000 sound system for 750 which is why I'm considering doing the system first. The bumper I'd get at normal price.

Btw, anyone know if any of the zl1 bumper vendors ever have sales on them?

That's exactly what I was thinking. Just wanted some opinions from others

TBH, get a new grille and a splitter and your good to go unless your bumper is damaged then get whatever is cheaper, whether be a SS, v6, or ZL1. Then do your sound system and nitrous or turbo. i know you dont think its reliable on our LLT but its so easily exchangable and youll make 380 plus whp and sound great

I'm definitely doing a new grille later down the road. I personally don't like the v6 splitter options. I figured if I'm replacing the bumper I might as well go for the zl1 bumper since its the one I like. What's so easily exchangeable? Since this is my daily, I've pretty much convinced myself I'll save the FI for my next car. Especially with all the issues and tuning problems with the LLT

gm gfx looks so good IMO. and well the IPF one is pretty much stock looking. not to difficult to go back to stock and yeah... but i guess im going FI cause I plan to keep this car till im 28 isssh and then buy a SRT viper or c7 vette... maybe a 6th gen 50th edition if they look good and perform well

I'd go with the sound system. Not a fan of the ZL1 bumper unless its on a ZL1.

Yes why it is that people who drive a v-6 think a zl1 bumper is all that, for me if its not attached to a zl1 its a poser bumper. Just get a grill.

My thoughts as well. I know folks customize the hell out of these cars, but I've never been a fan of putting a high end bumper on a lower model Camaro. It's just misleading IMO... Go for the sound system first as you will enjoy it each time you get in the car.

I also put this in yesterday. Got it free from GM (Along with some other items), can't beat that price. Camaro RS carpet was just there for fitting purposes, it's from my old V6.

That's poor logic... If you like how it looks, as well as I and many others do, go for it! That's all that matters brother man! "Poser??" Definitely not..

There is a guy on these boards that actually left the ZL1 badging, would you call him a poser?

Most definitely there's always that fine line...
