Not sure if this belongs in the Appearance or Body forum… but here goes… I don’t know about the rest of you, but I miss the knowledge base section that this site used to have back in the day. I thought it might be helpful to compile a thread which contains as much info as possible on the OEM Sport Appearance Package (SAP) for the 2004-2006 GTO. Granted there was a 2004 SAP kit as well as a 2005/06 SAP kit.

In the following posts, I’ll get us started with shots of the OEM: 2005 SAP brochure, SAP AutoX front grills, SAP front extension, SAP front extension hardware kit, and the SAP spoiler…

If by chance anyone has printed/scanned copies of the OEM installation documentation for the SAP rockers, SAP rear bumper or SAP exhaust, please post em here. Or post any details/info you have about the GTO SAP kit. Thanks in advance to all contributors.

Excellent idea! I recently picked up an SAP 05 torred red. Per those instructions it actually appears there are supposed to be screws/bolts that hold the front fascia onto the bumper. I just got my front bumper and the fascia piece repainted (to plug the front license plate holes 🤦‍♂️) and there were no screws/bolts used when the fascia was originally installed by the dealership. The shop I had don't he repaint didn't use screws to reattach and just used automotive double sided tape. Worried it won't last as long as I prefer 🙄.

That is some good info/documentation to have for people/prospective GTO buyers to see. I don't know if there is anything out there for the 2004 kit because it was a last minute put together by GM to help push the last of the 2004s off the lots. Nonetheless, I paid $500 at the dealer parts department for my 2004 kit, which was the grills, the spoiler and the 2005 hood. This was absolute theft on my part and I can't think of a better deal I have ever gotten on parts like that.

NOS grills alone are worth more than $500 now. that was indeed a steal.

Great job finding the 05 full SAP, must be nice. Make sure you post up some pics for us to admire.

The front ext HW kit was only available for a few months back in 2005, IIRC. It should have been included in the front extension itself but wasn’t. Mike from DMS helped get it designed and got it pushed thru the red tape at GM to get it added with its own unique GM part number. A bunch of us were fortunate enough to get them for our fascia installs back then. I’ll never forget sweating so much as I was drilling those holes!

As long as your shop cleaned/prepped everything well, the double sided tape should last a good while. But keep an eye on the gaps over time. At some point may need to fabricate some fasteners similar to what was included in this kit.

Right on, yeah those parts sound like the components of the 04 SAP. I don’t recall if there was a brochure or not.

I recall the grills and possibly also the spoiler being called Autocross grills and spoiler, yet the 2005 SAP kit documentation doesn’t mention ‘Autocross’. Pretty sure my old receipt for my grills even mentions it. Where did the Autocross name come from? Was that from the 04 kit?

I remember the term Autocross being used to describe the grills, I think...

For kicks and some nostalgia to this thread, here is my receipt from 2005 for the 2004 SAP kit...

I have all the receipts for everything the fella had done over the years on the GTO I just picked up. Was crazy going through all the pages of receipts he had. He even bought some rims that GM was offering in partnership with some company in cali. He had the silver SAP grills but I'm not a fan of them, so I swapped in some aftermarket CF ones.
Here she is 😀

Yep, that's the wheels. Couldn't remember the name. I saw a little flyer for them when going through all the paperwork that came with the car. I didn't like em in pictures but they're great in person I think.

I have every receipt for parts and maintenance on mine. I have a separate folder for all of the purchase paperwork, which includes a copy of the MSO and the window sticker. The only thing I don't have is gas receipts which is probably a little obsessive.

Nice ride cjsxv3! I totally forgot about those wheels. Can you take a pic of the flyer and add it to this thread? Seems fitting… dealer installed option just like the SAP. Also any chance the previous owner saved the GM installation paperwork for the SAP rockers, rear bumper or exhaust components?

Did the CF banshee hood come with the gloss black areas around the edges and hoodscoop or did you have them painted that way?

The previous owner had the banshee hood added. Oddly he had paperwork/receipts on most everything except that hood, at least didn't come across it when I skimmed through it all last week (only had the car a few weeks).

I'll get a picture of the flyer for the wheels tomorrow. I didn't see anything as far as installation paperwork for the other SAP components.
