Front spoiler

I hope GM offers a front spoiler like they put on the new Z06. Make it C/F to offset a lighter color, say Inferno, that would really stand out!

Do you know if the defuser and the front spoiler are available without the other ground effects?

I would imagine that all parts of the ground effects and spoilers would be available individually since you never know when the body shop might require a replacement piece! As far as I'm concerned, I only want the front piece to the ground effects and am not willing to purchase the whole kit just for one item.

If you just get one piece the visual 'weight' of the car will look completely awkward. It will look front heavy.

GFX are all or none imo.

99% of the time yes, all or none... however, I have a friend who would disagree... as will I when it comes to his car...










then again, landon's car has a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and time in it.

its an LT1 with the LS1 front fascia conversion and the WS6 style hood, front gfx, 17X9.5 front and 18X12 rear wheels with custom rear flares all by him.

I must agree. The front fascia is, imo, fantastic. But it's a perfect example of the front being too heavy visually. By comparison it looks too skinny from behind the front wheels to the rear.

If the GFX went all the way around that would be one of the best looking 4th Gens I've ever seen. (I'd lose that spoiler and replace it with the stock one that came with the GFX package though.)

I've tried to match the front skirt as close as possible to show the comparison of having only that piece and not the rest of the ground fx kit. Personally, I don't think it is overly large and would make the front "too heavy looking" to say, however, if it was painted in the same colour and you also opted for the Blade spoiler. This might offset the difference... makes it look more like the idea of the front of the SS? It is definately not a big of a difference as in the pictures above.

Here are a couple of pictures that were posted on one of the other threads on this site showing the new Bumblebee with only the front ground effects added. Personally, I don't see any problem with only using the front piece so long as it's painted either in the main body colour... colour of the rally / hockey stripes or in satin black finish. It give the LS or LT a more agressive look!

Front Ground Effect for SS

Does anyone know if the FRONT spoiler is the same for the SS as those used on the LS / LT?

Seeing that the SS already has a "spoiler" that is different from the others I'm not sure if the ground effects package offered will fit or even if it makes the SS look more like an LT?? Anyone know! .. or have a picture to show. Thx/RD

I'm wondering the same thing. The front Ground Effect for the SS has to be styled a little differently.

The SS front splitter had its surfaces tuned to maximize down force via wind tunnel testing.
So I would assume the front spoiler's are indeed different.

Yes, but it would be nice for GM to post a picture to show the difference. All pictures so far are of the LS / LT which makes it difficult to get an accurate representation unless there is the possibility that the side and rear skirts may be different too??

I hope it looks like Bumblebee's except, isn't Bumblebee an LT and not an SS

Yeah, I noticed that info on the PDF file. Can't wait to see a full blown SS/RS w/ GFX.

A front spoiler would look hot on my black 2SS/RS in flat black w/ my flat back stripes. I wonder how much that one piece would cost to be painted.

Looking for a front spoiler only, have seen the one from GM and from Hennessey Performance (wow on the price). Don't like the GM one and the other is way expensive. Let me know if there are any alternatives.
