Another new Sky in Texas! (DFW)
« on: March 07, 2010, 07:39:31 PM »
Just found this site today (3/7/10) and purchased my new 09 Sky on 1/2/10.  I found it online at a dealer in Little Rock at 945am, called the dealer to verify they had it and negotiated the price on the phone.  Made it from my house to DFW airport in time to catch a 10:45am flight.  The dealer picked me up at the airport and in less than an hour I was in my new Sky driving home!

Only mods so far were removing the GM chicklets, along with the SKY and dealer badges on the rear, and replacing the wheel caps with the Opel caps.  

I've read about the sequential turn signals - but am concerned about comments related to cracking the tail light when they are removed - anyone care to enlighten me on this?

I'm very interested in the MRZ engine cap covers and trunk lid billet covers - maybe we can start another group buy deal!

When removing the tail lights, don't use a screw driver to lift the light.  That cracks them.   use a scraper to help lift the lights.

Welcome aboard! My work's "websense" kicked me off of the solstice forum a few days ago, but for some reason I can still get onto this forum. So I guess I will be on here more often. At least while I'm at work. I'm in Irving, Tx by the way. Welcome to the neighborhood!
