It has slotted rotors that are larger than stock GXP and the rear caliper is clocked higher than the stocker

Yup, thats what I am looking for. Lets be super technical! Thanks.

BTW, what tinted door lights are you talking about?

Look above the red round reflector on the inside of the door. There'* a smoked lens there and behind it is a light

Man they should have changed the grills and that'* it. I like almost everything on the concept better than the production model.

Yup.
No special engine.
No 19'*
No Corsa exhaust

Even those bits would have added a couple of grand to the price. The others would have added less, but still made a difference.

Problem is, Pontiac was asking too much for this car from day one, so they should have added this stuff to make it worthwhile.

But, I guess that is what we can do now.

I'm willimg to bet that it has the Cadillac N* aswell. Pontiac got a de-tuned version, GM'* thinking - "A camaro can't be faster than a corvette"

a set of 18" tires arent to expensive. and 18" rims will look great and handling and performance will be good also. 18" rims will be your best bet
