No there is more. I can name every single option the Intimidator SS had that my monte doesn't have. Exterior wise it isn't anything special. It'* actually quite disappointing. Chrome wheels is another main difference that you can see right away.

i have the LZE 3500, i think the only engines available in the 07 were LZE(flex fuel) and the lz4 3500, and the ss had the 8

not likely going to bring them back anytime soon, gm seems to be getting away from affordable coupes, i think they are all gone now

Well that and GM decides to end production of almost every cool car they make *cough* Pontiac *cough*

Chrome just plain sucks IMO. If it ain't a semi it doesn't belong on it.

They just weren't taken care of. I've seen quite of few of the chrome diamond cuts in person (especially on a Brickyard Impala running around Lima) and they're not too bad.
