Poll: Should Chevrolet Offer Spoiler Delete Option on SS and RS cars?

Just noticed that quite a few folks are ordering the lower ground effects and wing spoiler for their cars. Problem is that unless you buy a non RS or SS car, your car will require expensive body work on the trunk lid because the Wing spoiler holes are different than the Duck or SS spoiler holes (which your car will come with).

Should Chevrolet offer an RPO called Spoiler Delete? This would not cost any money to customer or GM and the line worker would probably be happy that he has one less thing to install on a car. Wing spoiler guys would then be happy because it would save them a few hundred dollars in body work - something I would cringe about after buying a brand new car.

This feature also offers high end Camaro buyers a different look if they want to be unique. Stripe packages would look different on spoiler-less cars.

It would cost GM money. If the holes are drilled then they have to keep both drilled and non-drilled trunk lids in stock.

Trunk lids hit factory undrilled. All LS and LT cars come with no spoilers (undrilled trunk lids) unless you get RS option.

If the lids are delivered to assembley undrilled, it should be an option.

If you order the high wing spoiler you get the high wing spoiler regardless if it is RS or not. Just My Opinion. Like Hylton said, they will have trunk lids undrilled.

According to the Workbook, the high wing spoiler is a dealer installed item. If this is the case, what does the dealer do when someone has ordered it on an SS or RS?

The car will come from the factory with the SS spoiler and the dealer will have to fill the SS spoiler holes before making the new holes for the Wing spoiler?

I would guess they have some sort of provision laid out for a scenario like this. Like flagging the vehicle to make sure that the SS spoiler is not installed at the factory.

That's where an RPO for spoiler delete would come in. Question is, do they have one. I don't think they have dealt with this problem yet.

I don't think they will send the car with the holes in the wrong place if you order the high wing spoiler. But this may be a decent solution for those that decide to add a different spoiler later. It won't be perfect but at least there wont be holes left after removing the spoiler. He mentions making the plugs for left over spoiler holes if there is a need.

I'm always a fan of options. This would allow for some interesting customization with aftermarket spoilers and would represent a good stripping option.

Reason I did not get the high spoiler was because of this reason. If I got it, the car would have to get body work done and if I did not want body work on it, the high spoiler would not fit over the factory one (not that I would do such a dorky thing ). I would hate to have body work on a new car. To me it feels like having to do surgery on a baby. Both are unimaginable.

I am going to get the high wing spoiler on the SSRS. But why can't they just not put the regular spoiler on it when they build it and put the high wing instead?

If they can't, then they need to offer a spoiler delete

I would like to delete the spoiler on my 1SS when I order. I hope GM releases the RPO codes for deleting equipment.

Please Tom Peters!!!

To think that we SS and RS buyers must loose this look because of the spoiler. The trunk lid transition is totally lost when the car has a spoiler. Please give us the ability to get our cars without the spoiler so we can enjoy the initial styling of the car (even the kid in the photo likes it better).

You know, I'm starting to get behind this spoiler delete Idea. It seems to me that GM could make this possible with little complications. No new parts, no training, Just an option in the computer to not install it... I'm thinking this one makes sense and could be easy. Now, there may be something I don't know. But, on the surface this makes sense.

I'm for it. I may merge this with an existing thread once I find it.

This was mentioned as being under consideration in the IDL. No decision as yet.
