well i havent actually gotten it yet, but i have the whole package set up. Thats the whole body kit, front/rear fascia, rocker panels, spoiler and grill insert. I think it looks pretty sweet and don't know why it isn't included straight from the factory. And with the 18 chromes it should look real nice. Ill have some pics up hopefully after the weekend. You thinking of getting one?

What are they charging for the package, and for each part individually?

5K unpainted??? That's a rip off.

When I ordered my car in Jan 05 I got it quoted at 2500 and then installed. The kit lists for about 3300.

I did get a great deal on mine but even at 3300 which is high, is far better than the 5K.

Don't let the dealer tell you, you have to purchase the entire kit. You can purchase it by the piece. I had that option.

The kit has to be ordered thru the parts department. You cannot purchase it on your own. You can order it and then take the kit with you and do it yourself.

The kit only comes in 3 painted colors.....Black, Red, and Quicksilver. The kit also comes primed. My dealer wanted an extra 1800 for paint.

The 5k quote is the highest I have read, even for paint and installation. Totally out of line.

The Ebay post does not include the rear spoiler or the upper grill inserts. Figure about another 600 or so for those.

Add it all up and it is not that much cheaper than you should be able to get at your dealer, providing the dealer is not gouging you.

There was a time you could order a car from the factory and have it arrive with what you picked out, pre-installed on it. Those days are gone. They now call it dealer installed options. It's a way for the dealer to get in on the $$$$$$$. Makes the options cost more.

According to the link, the 2371 does not include the spoiler or the grill inserts, nor the SAP mufflers. Add the cost of the inserts and the spoiler minus the mufflers and now you're looking at 3189 for the package. If you get the rear facia you will need the muffler package. The stock ones will not mount correctly. Add about another 500 for the mufflers.

I saw the suggested list price for my 2005 when I ordered mine. I don't know what the list is for the 2006, it should be the same. Keep in mind the dealer will charge you $$$ to install it. Labor charges vary from dealer to dealer. As I stated previously, mine was installed for 2500. To be exact... 2513.35. I got a heck of a deal, and others on here have gotten a good deal too. It all depends on the dealer.

We all know list is just that, list price. If you don't negotiate they will nail you for the list. The fine print on that link says... Prices shown are suggested manufacturer's retail price..... They can do better.

Now, the dealer who wants 5k is trying a major screwing. Seems to me they don't want to install it because it is labor intrusive, so they inflated the price and if someone wants it bad enough they'll pay.....A perfect example of why GM and others went the way of dealer installed options.... Increased profits.

If there are multiple GM dealers in the area, that 5k should be bettered. I like the kit but not for that price.

Judge, the ebay link says the front and back are extentions. Are they just something that gets slapped over the exsisting bodywork or are they replacement parts?

I like the front, the sides are alright, but I don't like the back.
Both the front, and rear extensions are full replacement parts. They do not fit overtop the stock ones.

The SAP exhaust offers a deeper and more "rumbly" tone than do the stock exhausts, but they only fit up to the SAP rear facia, and the sound is noticeably different.

Any part the dealer takes off will be returned to you. I pieced mine out on Ebay and recouped about 1/2 of the cost of my SAP. I offered to sell mine back to the dealer at their cost but they didn't want it. They didn't want to carry an inventory on the parts.

I like both the stock and SAP rear. I wanted something different than the stock. As stated previous, you should be able to get the SAP piece by piece.

If they don't have time to look it up, then I wouldn't have time to deal with them.

Looks like they have time to play games with a potential customer, but no time to give an accurate price quote.

I'd get one elsewhere and go back and show them what you got. I did that to a Ford dealer, and a rival Pontiac dealer. Those results were posted in a previous post.

Say TAXMAN.......

Just for shi**'s and giggles I called Master Pontiac to get a quote on the entire package in Black.... The parts guy quoted me 2371.42 for the basic kit which is the same price as the Ponitac Accessories link says. The guy told me the exhaust is included, but on the price list it is not :confused ........Then 268.57 for the inserts just as indicated in the link. Now the spolier is a different story....Pontiac Assessories says it should be 550.00. Master quoted me 666.05. That price is inflated. :eek:

Here is a good one..... I called the body shop to get an installation quote.. They cannot give me one until they do some research....the guy I talked to told me they never did one before and all the ones they had previously came in that way.. I told him... the SAP is a dealer installed option..... He tells me they order the car like that and it comes in with the SAP already installed from factory and the price is then passed on to the customer....... Unless Pontiac just started doing that.,...... he was blowin smoke up my arz.

Hes full of Sh**...... He didin't know what the SAP was, I had to tell him what the SAP stood for. You cannot order a car from factory with the SAP on it,
(I wanted to) and according to my local dealer, the dealer cannot order one that way. They come in stock, and the dealer installs them at the dealership.....

Funny thing..... I called back to the show room and was told they have 3 in stock.. Black, Spice Red, and Silver.... None have the SAP on it. I asked the sales guy if they come in with the SAP on it he told me no, it's a dealer installed option. I then asked him why the body shop guy told me you order them that way and they come in from factory with the SAP on it. He then tells me he's been there for years and he's never seen one come in like that. He again told me they are installed at the dealer. He don't know why the body shop guy told me that..... :willy:

No wonder your sig reflects their antics. :lol:
