Car is looking excellent!! I would be interested to know how much it cuts down on the stone chips that always seem to occur, Mudflaps came to mind but they just didnt look right to me.

We'll have to wait and see about the stone chips. I had the "Stealth" mud flaps on before this, and they are bigger than the corresponding face of the GFX. They did a great job of protecting the areas behind the tires, front and back, and I am tempted to put them back on with the GFX. Also, they where a lot more "stealthy" on a black car.
Maybe Mark can chime in with his experiences.

Its a popular wheel design, they looks like the 5th gen corvette Z06 wheels. BBS also has a similar set.

I thougt the same thing when removing mine. Wear gloves and use force while holding the grille back so you don't rip that off too. I put my hand through the grille and pushed on the clips from the back. I searched on here when removing mine and loved reading the threads where they say just pull it right off, yeah right. But it does get easier after its off the first time.

Yup the first time is a b&tch! After that it will pop right out!! Try using a heat gun so the plastic doesn't snap!!!

I had good luck wearing gloves and rocking it back and forth / up and down a little while pulling.

About time lol.

This is the guy that planted the "you should buy that new Camaro" seed in my head about these cars.


Welcome to the madness my dude!!!


Thanks for the harness btw, can't wait to get those new DRL's on. Too bad those P26 bulbs that you have laying around didn't fit!
