Wonder if the clock spring would fit ours, it would be nice to have the paddle shift funtion without cutting our LED steering wheel lights.

The only thing I would even consider swapping over would be the rear bumper. I think it's pretty sharp. But, to be honest, I love the styling of my GT a hundred times more than that muscled up Malibu. That's just me though.

I haven't seen a picture of the dome lights but hopefully they would be an upgrade and be compatible since the center section of the car is basically the same.

First SS Mod avaliable

Anybody what the SS 19" new wheels? Yep, Chevy styling has always been lame, but lazy well here you go you can get the same wheel set up from OZ on fleebay.au from the VE Commodore Redline (Redline same as the GXP without the LS3). What company develops a new car and uses the same wheels on the next generation? So heres your first mod of the SS.

I want the seats and the brakes. That's pretty much it, this "four door corvette" can keep everything else.

holden SSV is quad pipe same as before, as for a hood swap it will need the full front to match, or put a G8 front on an SS

The leather armrest looks a lot like the Redline goods armrest cover, which is cool.

Seats for sure. Steering wheel looks nice.
I like how they made a console lid that does not try to knock the lid off of your drink now. Though I don't think theres a way to swap that in.

Here's another set, you can see the difference in the width with them all side by side.

Ok.... I guess I'll take the starter button and the paddle shifters. Maybe even the rear view camera since we already have the screen for it.
