Go_Driven, have you theorized any type of trends/fads as it relates to coupes & their owners since you've began data basing? For example, those who purchased primarily for pleasure from those who purchased primarily for hope(d) investment, or even nostalgic reasons?

2006/#482/First 1,000/Triple Blk/2.4 Manual/BCCoilovers/JPM Shifter (classic white w/black 5spd pattern)

2009/#480/GXP of 1266 Targa Coupes/Aggressive/Silver Metallic Stripe/Auto/Optional Polished Split Spokes/GMPP/Solo Mach Shorty/Norms Front GXP Splitter/BCCoilovers/DDM Backbeam & Probeam

LowLife handle simply means likes lowered cars

Hi Everyone, this listing:

Now resides in Colorado, outside Boulder. 4249 Miles, last week she was transported here from Georgia. We just bought the softop from the local dealer. Car is in fantastic shape, 41U all options, and surprise surprise, it has the GMPP tune upgrade. Also has the pedals, 3M or ? clear lower paint protectors, plus splash guards.







Very fun car

Enjoy your new car!

I wondered why the bottom of my front splash guards were shredded!

I remembered you guys mentioning this, so last week I removed them. Rear no issue at all, paint perfect. Front I did have to do a little buffing with a scratch compound. Caught in time though. I'd rather have a rock come up and chip the paint (if the 3m clear tape wasn't on the area where the rock hit). At least that way I have the touch up paint and can fix. The problem with the splash guards, at least the front ones is that there is no foam protector between the plastic and paint. So road debris can build up between the guards and paint, and then any time the guard makes contact with the ground it moves, rubbing the debris trapped against the paint. Given enough time, especially on a black car, upon removal I would have been looking at repainting the lower fenders as the only fix.

I would only recommend these if you are driving a lot of miles, or have to drive on a gravel/dirt road. Our Coupe will rarely if ever see rain if we can avoid it and certainly no gravel roads, it's just a 3rd vehicle, sunny, weekend joy ride so I didn't feel we really needed these. Opt for the 3m clear down low for some protection.

'09 Solstice GXP Coupe #492, Mysterious, Auto, 6249 miles.

Besides, by sticking those additional non-aerodynamic obstructions on the car, you'd probably lose .6750 MPH in top speed......

Personally, I've never liked the looks of them, but to each his own on that.
