GMPP Ground Effects Lip Kit Installed W/ Pics!

Well I recently installed the GM (PP?) factory ground effects lip kit yesterday, snapped a few pics today. Sorry for the dirty car didn't wash it yet since it was raining alot recently.

I noticed there aren't really any pictures of this kit on the site and limited at best on others.

The kit comes prepainted in black, red, blue, silver and unpainted. The unpainted one is cheaper.

Oh and spare me the "lower it" stuff, I know I need it, but I'm waiting for warranty to expire and I need to survive winter. I think the wheel gap looks horrid, but you know I need to drive this everyday!











MODS: GMPP "Performance" cat-back, GMPP intake, GMPP extrude honed header, GMPP ground effects kit, lip spoiler, gen 4 headlights, DC sport strut tower brace, splitter, vortex generators, motegi SP10, Iridium spark plugs, ractive aluminum pedals, white carbon shift knob, shorty antenna, 4300K HID low beams (screw electricals warranty)

I actually really want fogs!!! but alas no one makes a good kit for it. The newer balts don't even have removable side-fake-vents.

www.crateenginedepot.com, but be warned speak to greg or tom, GM is offically out of the prepainted black kit. I bought the last on in their US warehouse and it's sold out in Canada. I can't speak for the other colours though.

I know, I know, but I have since decided that 12.5lbs wheel are much better for acceleration and fuel economy. The handling/visual benefits is not justifiable, in my opinion, for the ladder minuses.

Looks good.
I like those wheels.
They would look even better black.

Thanks, I remembered when I bought them, it was available in black, but it had a weird silver ring inside (unpainted). So I took the hyperblacks instead. But yeah it would look better though... so I just have to get my lazy ass to do it this winter.... But at least they are the lightest in that price range. I think the 18" versions only weigh 19lbs, which is pretty darn good for a 150$(18") wheel.
