I'm still trying to decide if I should go with the GTS look or the Clubsport when I get the bumper painted.

I like the Clubsport but with the hood insets color matched and not black or chrome. Did you go with the GTS fog bezels or the other version?

I went with the GTS fog bezels, I think they look way better than the Clubsport.

Are the GTS fog bezels a simple bolt-on if I have Clubsport fog bezels currently?

the fog lamps on the GTS are a bit smaller than the Clubsport. you'll have to change the lamps in order to use the GTS bezels.

Price may be closer to $90k by the time it gets to your driveway.

Change topic - Yesterday I fitting my HSV E engine cover and boy I was sweating it (102F) both being hot and thinking I was going to brake one of the tabs off. Its almost an inch taller than the stock cover, also the back lip sits down further. I had to push up on the fire wall insulation to make it clear, and actually touches the top but ended up fitting.
Yeah it's definitely a tight fit.

It looks like you have the V6 radiator cover (no cutout for the radiator cap and AC port) instead of the V8 one.
