    That’s what I did with my car. My car shipped with the Z51 spoiler b/c the high wing was delayed.

      Yes, 100% if you have the Z51 spoiler the High wing will fit the same exact holes. My High Wing was taken off my order so I ordered one and installed it mostly by myself with occasional help from my wife. There are certain points in the removal and install process where you need a second person to help you hold the rear bumper assembly.

            Are you asking about the carbon FLASH or a carbon FIBER one? The OEM one that you could order before IIRC was only plastic, but you could get it in carbon flash, black and a few other colors.

            We were in the same boat... allocation came up and no high wing option, but we wanted it, so I contacted one of the MECF vendors and it's waiting to be shipped to the NCM for installation when the car gets built.

                  Well I went and placed my final order. There were a few constraints. Lighted sills, which we all knew. The high wing spoiler. The carbon fibre grill inserts. The black trident wheels. And the one I was really bummed about was the black rocker extensions. I was hoping for those.
                  I guess I’ll have to get the high wing spoiler and rocker extensions as aftermarkets.
                  I can’t believe GM hasn’t sorted out their supply chain for these components yet. It’s not like they are only a month into production.

                    I understand your frustration. Everyone however in every aspect of manufacture is still experience Covid supply issues. Four months out on appliances for new houses — if you can get them. My friend thebuilder was telling his new home customers last week “we may start you out with a Traeger and a cooler — on us if we can not get them for you in time.”

                    Same length of time for getting a couch. Took us three months to get window blinds for our new house, two months for a simple 12’x12” carpet. Doors and door locks, especially fire doors are an issue too

                    And way more important, my daughter (a nurse) and a friend in medical supply are both experiencing continued massive problems in getting some medical supplies — and not even just the ones needed for Covid.


                    We can be unhappy if we choose, or we can breathe and know we will get what we want over time and as you suggested from A/M

                      Yep, and those high wings are available thru a multitude of vendors, so you can always work out with your dealer the install factored into your purchase, or in the case of NCM deilvery, talk to Shane and they will do it for a flat fee.

                      The aftermarket is a plenty with options too. We didn't order the rocker pieces , as we'll just plasti-dip those areas nice and thick and they will stay protected.

                      Hang in there!

                        Aftermarket works on most things too. In my case, I didn’t want to settle with an A/M High Wing. As such, I simply ordered it from Chevrolet.com almost two weeks ago. Originally, I ordered it in black, changed my mind, then ordered it in Carbon Flash. As of today, they have multiple colors available. The Carbon Flash is a much better match too with my 21 Rapid Blue C8 Coupe, that I have yet to receive. 🙁

                          we ordered ours in carbon flash as well, since the boomerangs will be like that it will compliment that well on the black car to break it up a little.

                              Just a note for anyone not aware. If you're a GM employee or retiree you can order your High Wing Spoiler (or other parts) through the Chevy dealer and get a 10% discount. I don't know if all Chevy dealers do this but all that I've dealt with have. Doesn't hurt to ask. I just ordered a High Wing and the price was $995, but I got $100 off with free delivery to the dealership for me to pick up.

                                Let me know if you want the black rocker extensions. I ordered a set last year and then decided to put on the full carbon fiber painted carbon flash ground affects instead. The set I have is brand new OEM rockers from GM, (never been installed and is still in the factory box with all the installation hardware and templates). PM me if interested.
