    Default C6 spruce up options

    Decided I cant afford a 2019 coupe upgrade so I am looking to upgrade appearance and performance of my black over red 2005 coupe, bone stock at this moment. My first thought was paddle shift upgrade, is it possible and is it expensive? Also, rear spoiler or any mods to dress up the look.

    I can't help you with the paddle shift but ACI makes some nice spoilers and other parts for the C6. We toured the facility during a past CAC Cruisefest and it is a quality operation.

    I'm going to move this thread to the C6 Forum. It will get more attention there.

    This is the GM spoiler I added to our Grand Sport.

    thanks, this is one I'm looking at and another one that that curves down the side of the quarter a bit.
    Was this a no drill install, ie; attaches to the extra brake light.

    Yes there is drilling, but the template provided is foolproof... It is a "factory fit", that's why I bought it!!
