I like the spoiler. Not the bumper though. Too open.

I'm not a Monaro fan boy like most, so this new front is getting too far from the Pontiac look as it is (for my tastes) with all the angles in the openings. A Holden front with a GTO 05/06 hood just looks wrong for example. I might like this one better with the matching mesh in the openings right below the hood, though. The other guys have some good points about rounding off a little more.
I hope it becomes available. It's great to have choices. You can't make everyone happy but those who are happy will buy it.
Yea new angles kill it for me. The angles in the lower grill are going against the lines of the car. Everything I highlighted in red "flows" in the same direction but the lower extension heads in the opposite direction.
That's why I love the HSV front all the line seem to run with the car so much better than the stock front end. And as other stated no license plate extension.
Judging by others reaction this company would make fists full of money if they reproduced either a Monaro or HSV kit.
This bumper is by far the best bumper available for the GTO...
pretty convinced that those side skirts are the best as well...

Technically any appearance modification that does nothing else is ricer.
Some wheels, different hoods, the shiny pieces you buy for under-the-hood bling, shiny LEDs, etc.
And before you argue, any justification you might make, a Honda boy could for his Honda, too. Everyone has a little ricer in them, some just have the money to do it right. They add 500 dollar body kits, we add $12,000 kits.
But isn't that what was done with the 05-06 GTO's? Hood scoops that don't work, mufflers moved to the rear bumper, little plastic insert in the rear, clear tails.
Actually the hood scoops do work. They do allow outside air to enter the engine bay. They just don't direct that air to the air filter. The new age GTO's and other Newer American made Muscle cars are following directly after their name sakes of the 50s and early 70s. Just a basic model car stuffed with performance items and a few minor body additions.
