    Really liking this look vs the Z51. Not as cluttered imho. For some reason, the Z51 spoiler seems to detract from the lines of the car when applied to SGM. And ...... The stripes cause the Spermatozoa on the engine hatch cover to fade into the background ! Click image for larger version

    Nice example ! The stripes blend in to the vents nicely. Sad to say mine will have the Z51 wing.

      Yeah, it would be nice if there were a spoiler delete. I'd be all over that for the bigger brakes and non visible handling attributes. And my track days are over .... lol

        I forgot, failed to remember, to say that the engine bay is looking magnificent in edge red. Back to the spoiler ... Active aero like the Audi R8s would be a pricey option for the C 8. I would be happy with a manually operated rear spoiler that could be popped out for spirited sessions.

        ...........Would be the best of BOTH worlds..........

          Agree with the OP. I liked the spoiler in photos before I saw the cars in person. Don't care for it much in the "flesh" (plastic?). But to each his, or her, own. I don't think I'll be ordering a Z51, and think for my use the base model will be just fine. But if for some reason I decide I really want Z51, I'll put up with the spoiler.

            I don't care for the spoiler either, looks like an after thought, but at least it's painted the same color as the body. Be neat to get the stripes ghost painted in the body color.

              That is the logic behind the CF stripes on SGM body color. They're there but .............

                    I'm hoping that in real life the visual effect is as it is using the visualizer. The further out from the car one is, the more the srtiping blends into the background of the car as a whole. Is it 06 of 2021 yet ?

                      The Build and Price tool on Chevrolet.com shows much higher quality images than the visualizer. Although not from all the same angles.

                        Love the combo DARK gray + red + stripes.
                        If the SGM was actually this gray, I would be completely sold!

                        Unfortunately, the SGM is much more blueish (greenish) than anything else.
                        The Build and Price tool gives a better idea on the real color compared to the visualize. However, under sun light, the real car has much more blue than any of these tools show! ;-(
                        Very misleading IMHO.

                          I guess there isn't one because it would imbalance the car aerodynamics.

                            All good to know. In fact, even better. I really liked the gray on my C6 with the blue tint in the flake.

                              My issue with the build and price configurator is it downloads the images as a file rather than .jpg. Also, still not showing the accessory engine covers. Meh .........
