one of the most underappreciated vetted on the forum, just because he simply doesn't post nearly enough pictures of it

I rocked them on mine for several years before finally removing them because I think the lines look cleaner. I'm not overly offended by them, but I think ultimately they date the car to the period they were produced, which is apparently wildly offensive to some lol.

Then just remove it and don't ask anyone else's opinion.... sigh

Agreed and agreed.

Yeah, and the same people stating without them the car "looks cleaner", are the same one installing body kits, fake brake vents, and rear spoilers, and stripes.

Yah, cleaner alright.

and now without:


The ONLY difference between them is the second picture has the BSM's removed.
Top pic--kinda looks like a C5 with BSM--no wait--was the trunk lid BSM also and option? Thanks GM for NOT making BSM standard equipment

It's a personal preference thing, I removed them off my Z as I think they don't look right or balanced.. The shamfered break at the front near the door makes it look like its doesn't line up correctly, and also the way it stops at the back edge of the door leaving back rear panel without ... Anyway I think it looks much better without.. But it's your car

Haha relax. I wasn’t trying to be offensive. “To each their own”.

“Aaron.”
