Checked those prices at my dealer last Friday. Retail is $60. Wholesale to dealer is $42. There was an price of $51 on the system also. Was the same prices for both front and rear. Can't hurt to negotiate the lower prices when you pick up your car.

Price for the tonneau cover was $299 with a wolesale price of $209.30, which I believe is the same as the price on gm part website without the shipping charge.

Splash guards are $50.40 at this site.

Thanks for the link...

When I searched GM there wasn't a Solstice cover listed.

Wondered what a Passenger Compartment Tonneau cover was
- I think it only covers the passenger side when the top is down. I am looking for a car cover/for winter storage. Checked out the Calf. Covers... they have some nice options and I am told that they fit very nicely.

Our Supporting dealer KappaSphere is selling the (Calif. Covers) on their web site, so if you are going to get one why not get it from one of our supporting dealers.
Thanks.

17800974 Front Splash Guards

Has anyone purchased and installed the front splash guards part no. 17800974?

I bought mine from gmacaccessoriesstore.com and returned them twice.
On inspection of the splash guard, they have embossed on the guard itself, that they are for Impala Rear!!!

After sending them back and receiving the same ones back, I finally got them to understand the problem. The company said that the part 17800974 though they are embossed as Impala Rear guards, that sometimes parts are exhangeable with other cars, and that these are, in fact, the splash guards for a Solstice Fronts.

So, I will attempt to install. If anybody has installed the front splash guards, how did you install them, and if they look like they fit?

One more question.....are the front guards the same size as the rear ones? Or are the fronts much smaller?

They are about the same size.

The dealer just doesn't know and is blowing a lot of smoke.

Try ordering from another supplier, or call the 800 number and ask to talk to Tom.

I had this happen to me - even when the dealer ordered the part - the part number was correct , but the box was for a different car. In my case, the mudflap would not even fit the car - the shape was not even close !

A re-order solved my problem.
