Wix 57045 in place of specified 57060xp?

Anyone have any insight whether its acceptable to use the longer 57045(XP) in place of the specified 57060(XP) for our 6.2L cars? I just happen to have a handful of 57045XP filters around.

My guess is full retail is around $25-26K. Sounds like the trade in offer was spot on. They arent in the business of buying for retail and selling for same or less.

Saw my first 2019 Camaro on the road today. A SS in red. That funky "Gladiator helmet cheek " look was hideous. I thought it wasn't bad from the online pics. But, in person, it really looks worse.

:thumbdown:
I don't care for the shape/style. Fixing the existing hood is easier than replacing the hood and it'll appeal to more people when you decide to sell. Or just unwrap your hood.
2 cents.

The little ceramic tube is the place that the arc generates inside of xenon gas. So, yes. A cracked tube will cause a failure.

Coupe or Convertible?

Thinking about another Cam5, this one a ZL1. I've never owned a convertible. But it opens up more cars to consider if I were open to a convertible.

Can you relate your experiences?

SS 1LE Black Hood Wrap Removal?

I'm shopping cars and a SS 1LE is a candidate, but I don't care for the black hood wrap. Is this an easy heat gun removal? I'd prefer a striped car to the black hood.
