ZL1 bumper mod?

I really like the ZL1 bumper (Bumblebee's bumper). I was consider this as a mod until they announced the zl1. Now I would feel like a ricer trying to pass off my SS as a zl1.

Anyone else considering a bumper change?

why is that ricer? i like the bumper. however, i wouldnt do it to my car. its something that should be for the ZL1 only. just my opinion. i dont like how some v6ers put the S bumper on either but what can you do. thats how you make a clone.

I really like that bumper too. The beauty of owning your own car is that you can do to it what [U]you[U] like. Don't worry so much about what others think and do what puts a smile on your face.

Why ask opinions if is something that you want to do, its your car, your decision. If you like the ZL1 bumper,and they are available, put it on.

I dont' have a Camaro, but I agree the ZL1 bumper looks much better. I have a G8 and a number of people have put GXP front fascia's on their GT's because they prefer the looks. Just don't go putting ZL1 badges on and nobody will think it's rice.

Oh and no stick on fender vents, ok?

i agree....as long as you don't badge it as a ZL1, it's all good.

There is nothing wrong with swapping out the front if that is what you like.

The quad tip exhaust may become a popular swap by owners.
