Well, let hope they drive up the prices for our cars. Being the original and all. But if I'm going to get a V8, I'm sure you can hook us up with something better and more cost effective.

I see a new body kit in the future.
She's an 09 Brazen GXP.

Covered by Norms Fiberglass, DDM, WERKS, KappaSphere, Trifecta performance, Dejon performance, Solo performance, Magnaflow, Hahn, VDI, B&G, ASAP, WindRestrictor, Gravana, JPM, Santana, Madmod, HID pro, Second Skin Audio, mydipkit, Automotivetouchup.com and soon to be EDAG customized.

To be or not to be hard, that is the question. I prefer my top off and still hard when I need it.

Yes, I have already talked to Pedro regarding this, we will be able to order the body pieces btu it will be expensive, they are high quality production pieces and shipping from Spain is mega bucks...

I understand Joe, I have also changed many body parts on my car. Your wanted changes are a complete transformation of the looks of the Solstice. Moving from the round look and heading to a more squarer look of the SKY...  :thumbs:

We have built V8 drivable chassis for them yes, all I can say is that I am going to Spain in a couple weeks to visit their assembly plant and talk more about the future plans.

Watch out for the Bulls :)  Have fun, Spain is a great place, but watch out for their expresso and brandy.  It's a killer.

It's a good looking car, but for over 100G's american- you can do A LOT better... the only thing I can think about is what to do if your door locks cease to work, or the handles break off, or the the top wears off and acts all the stupid... also what about the suspension? What's been done to account for the added flex associated with using the LS-series V8.
