My G8 has been modified to be a tribute car for the 2010 HSV Clusport GXP. In my scenario, the Clubsport GXP has been upgraded by Walkinshaw Performance with additional HSV or similar performance items like bigger brakes, bigger wheels and tires, E3 GTS wing, performance suspension, supercharger and interior gauges, headrests, wheel, etc.

The 2010 Clubsport GXP was the only VE based HSV Clubsport to use the same rear fascia and tails as the G8.

Here are photos of the real-HSV GXP (white) and a shot of my tail (black).

That looks beautiful! I'm doing this to my car as soon as my manual conversion is finished (hopefully this month!)

I'm assuming you went through JHP for the parts - How'd that go? Did they budge on the pricing, did the parts arrive on time, etc?

I'm only guessing here, but it's probably through JHP. Here's a link:

Yeah, it's pricey AF.
