If you've got such a good product/idea....start your own thread...

I (and I'm sure many others) would love to see a pic!!! This has been the biggest area of concern for me for my awaited SS. The round exhaust tips in the GFX chrome boxes "don't do justice at all". I can't figure out what to do. I figured it would look better without the round tips or at least with black tips so not so obvious, but I would have to think taking the tips off could cause heating areas before the chrome and around plastic, etc. In other words, I would be afraid that having those tips off long-term would create some repercussions. MBRP makes some rectangled tips which fit, but they still don't do justice. My next route would be to have someone weld sheet metal between the exhaust pipe and the chrome rectangles to join them so that when you look in from behind you are really looking into the exhaust pipe itself.

Again, carbon fiber over the chrome squares would be really nice with the painted or unpainted GFX, but we need a material that will withstand heat because I'm sure the clear coat over these carbon fiber products won't hold up over time. (We need some space shuttle tiles to manufacture this mod.) I thought of black G2 caliper paint, but think it will be too glossy and will chip off the chrome squares easy over time. I might look into the GM service department painting them a flat black or a black to match the unpainted GFX for my SIM. If they are willing and able to do that, I would just get black tips mounted and consider it done!

GM really should have taken a survey or something for those chrome squares with the round tip idea before production! I have read so many complaints so I know I'm not alone with this. GM could have easily had anodized color options just as there are different color exhaust tip options in the after-market world. This is a very hot item - literally!!! GM has to take these opinions seriously! The GFX exhaust area is just as big an issue as the double-sided tape issue they had to fix on the front lip. It just forces buyers to put their new car into the shop to correct what should have been corrected before purchase. IMHO

Just wanted to point out something, however. On the dash panels, the second pic y'all have posted on the website looks like there's an imperfection in the graphic. I've circled it in blue in the photo I attached. Just want to make sure y'all are aware of this

Fesler, I know I asked about the restitching. But, now I'm more interested in that center console in the hydro carbon fiber to match the speedo.

ive had my gfx on for about two months..drive it every single day all day. when the car turns off i havent noticed the chrome boxes being hot, actually i dont even think they are hot to the touch after driving. the pics with the stripes were taken about a month and a half after i installed the gfx and as you can see, no melting or anything at all..i dont have any protection what so ever and nothing is wrong at all with my gfx. the only negative thing about the whole deal is that the exhaust is just short of of metal squares..meaning from tip of exhaust to outside of the gfx there is about a 1 to 2 inch gap..when you drive the car the moisture from the exhaust and the carbon build up leave a small patch of black residue that is very easy to remove.you can just run your finger over it and its gone..let me see if i can find the pic of it. ok heres a few pics at different angles and even one with the chrome tailpipe rings before i lost one of em. like i said in my opinion i like them way more with the rings off. to me with the rings on it just looks like there is too much going on making it look tacky to me. but thats my opinion. they didnt look that bad at all, would have looked even better if the rings were cut at an angle to match the exhaust ends.

The pic without the tips is so much higher. Still hard to see. Wish it were an angle just like the pic with the tips. I'm getting too damn picky here I know. I feel exactly like you do about the tacky round tips inside the squares. On the other hand, I think I've been looking at them so long that now that I look at your pic with the green stripes, my mind tries to figure out where the tips are even though I know they aren't there. I'm probably unconsciously telling myself that I don't want to have to worry about occasionally wiping the pollution off from underneath and I have fears of my kids falling asleep in the back seat and never waking up while I'm idling at a lot of lights or talking to someone. I know that's retarded, but I look at them they way I wanted them without the tips and now feel like the tips are supposed to be there. Heck, I think I just need to get mine cause all I'm going by is pics. But you're right, that gap would concern me which is why I have thought about black exhaust pics too and cut off just barely past the inside point. Who knows, that might look just as tacky. This is a tough one man and way off subject from the thread. Sorry guys!

I'm still waiting for install pics for the Hydro Carbon Fiber pieces here.

Looks great! Thanks for the pics! yeah, I'm sure you can't notice those small gaps between the pipe and the square, even from a lower view in daylight.
