I'm assuming the grill is the one used on the Autocross package? One would assume that the factory grill is removeable from the rear and this pops in its place perfectly? Hmm, mabee I CAN have my cake and eat it too... Since I really prefer the stock front end but MUST have the recessed grill! :hail:

Now to find the shark gill side skirts like the HSV GTO has. :eek2:

With the color limitations on the last 3 parts I would guess they are autocross body kit parts, we will have to wait and see.

Well i'm going to assume the grill inserts would be available for any color, which is good. I wouldnt really mind the autocross side skirts but that is really all i'd need to change becides the grill inserts to make me happy with the looks.

And on a side note, here is a nice photoshop I made of the GTO in IBM Blue with the grills but stock front bumper. Looks 100% better IMO.

It looks even better without the GTO logo in the grill, but for the sake of having it there (like stock) I put it back in. I agree, the grill inserts will probably be the first thing on the car when I get it.

Then it will better match the lower grill that I want to match the uppers.

Grill Inserts?

Does anyone know if the autocross grill really does just insert into the 04 fascia? I looked at mine and it looks as if the grill is part of the entire fascia assembly.

I tried to order the grills this morning just for giggles, I get a "future product part #" error so looks like we have to wait longer :)

The front grills come off like this:
Remove the radiator shroud.
Unscrew the front bumper fascia. I was able to the pull it far enough away to reach my hands in there. The grills are held in by 4 clips at all corners. There is then the pita ones. There is one clip, dead center, on the top and bottom. These have a little retainer on them that is quite difficult to remove, especially the bottom one. I said, f- it and just pulled them out, breaking the last two clips. Since there are four others holding them in, they do not move at all. I think I've got some pics I'll search for.

Looks pretty easy. Sounds to me like the "Autocross" kit is only a front trim kit that attaches over the factory bumper cover and the rear is a complete replacement cover.

Actually, I had a chance to examine the Barbados autocross 'concept' upclose recently at the Woodward Dream cruise, and while the front bumper enhancements appear at first to be stuck on, it actually appeared to be a one-piece molded component (at least on the concept). However, we all know the autoX rear bumper cover will be different than that barbados concept (WHY THE SLOTS ABOVE THE PIPES?!?!). Maybe some of our people in the know would share more about the package....

Could be to keep the rear bumper from acting like a parachute at speed. A friend of mine used to drag his car every weekend and one night he decided to remove the rear bumper cover before a run, only to discover the car was a few tenths faster without it. Broke into 12.9's when he had been running 13.1's and higher for months. Thats not to say that is what the true function of the slots are however.
