Welcome. So sunroof and matt black roof? Different but it yours so 馃憤馃徎.
Nice stance/wheels.
Any powertrain/suspension mods?
Unfortunately the car was bought with ugly gray strips down the entire length of the car.. the roof was the only thing not redone at the time so I wrapped it.
It鈥檚 in my garage right now with the roof molding taken off and it鈥檚 going to the shop end of the month to have the roof painted gloss black to match the sunroof.

it鈥檚 got a built auto transmission
Tick performance cam and supporting mods
Kooks Long tube headers with Corsa Exhaust.
I鈥檝e had all the bushing on the car replaced and put BC Racing Coilovers on the car as well.
Other stuff I鈥檓 probably forgetting.
I鈥檝e kept every receipt for everything I鈥檝e had done to the car since I鈥檝e owned it.

Never was a fan of QSM but that set up looks sharp! Red or black interior?
It came with black interior, no tears I. The seats yet but the rears are ready to split and it鈥檚 unfortunate. I鈥檇 love red interior pieces with the black seats.. debating on piecing it together this summer.

Why are so many people not fans of the silver cars? I think they look really good. My favorite is BOM then red, but not the red i ended up with. Sometimes I dream of buying a BOM roller and putting all my stuff in it, then putting my car back together enough to sell, running and driving.

My biggest complaint with QSM is that silver is an imperfect color and it really shows with age. Can鈥檛 repaint anything silver unless I do the whole car at this point if I want it perfect.
 

Is that FWD?

My body shop matched my rear bumper perfectly when I had the passenger side cut out and molded for the split exhaust pipes. I have them now doing my front bumper, Catera door handles and eventually my SAP extension whenever it gets here. In 05 I bought the SAP grills and 05 hood and they were matched perfectly as well. My car is a garage queen so I can鈥檛 comment on paint fade. My 2014 Impala has 200k on it and the paint looks good for being a daily driver and run through the car wash a lot. No fade or clear coat oxidation but it has plenty of battle scars from road debris. I guess what I am trying to say is I haven鈥檛 experienced that on any GM silver car I have owned, and I currently own 3.

Same here, no issues at all, not even peeling door handles or fuel filler door. The Holden paint is as thin as has been claimed though鈥 my front bumper is being repainted due to rock chips and a scratch that won鈥檛 come out.

Silver is a tougher one to match. My painter even told me to check it out real good to make sure I was happy with the match or he would do it again if I wasn鈥檛 happy.
