    There will be a few aftermarket places I am sure in the near future for discounted parts. You may want to check with your dealer for GM part. Did you order it and not get it as your post indicates?

      Just my opinion, but $995.00 for what you're actually getting is a little much.

        Think about it, GM is charging $995 to Paint an entire Car LBR and SOT, and then the same about of money for just the Exterior Color Ascent or a Engine Package.

        I don't know, maybe it's just the cheapskate in me ...

          It was expensive , no question. But I wanted the factory lights in the engine area, and the carbon fiber looks good in the engine bay. I just figured I would get it and be done with it. I am going to look for the power source for the lights so I can install a switch , might do that Sunday.

              Last I checked, $995 is still $995.

                They are charging that in addition to what they already added into the price of the car for the tint clearcoat. I know there are folks PPF'ing their car and ceramic coating, so I talked with one of the local high end paint shops here in Miami and like GM says in the owner manual, That those things are not recommended. Especially the LBR and SOT colors having the extra tint coat applied. Just putting it out there.

                  I added engine appearance package (along with several other options). Liked the lights/carbon & since mid-engine is so prominent, really looks super at night! Think Chevy Dude posted pic on his Instagram & it was killer! Heck I paid $700 for a photo album of car being built sold by museum. Still on fence about PPF/Ceramic, not the cost, just read eventually both have to be replaced & can be PITA.

                    I went ahead and got the engine appearance package. I wanted it from the factory and not something aftermarket and you get the lights. Worth it to me

                      I love the appearance package. Difficult for me to place an absolute price/value calculation this particular package on such an awesome car at such a great overall value.

                        Ok one last //Rant//

                        Why does it cost ME and extra $995 to paint the (2) Front, Rear and Side accent pieces ... really, can’t that be painted at the same time as the rest of the Car.

                        //Rant off//

                        Hope everyone has a safe and great Memorial Weekend ... Remember the Purpose First, then have a toast to them.
