the guys at Pontiac finally hit the number I think...i just saw some pics of that "Phantom Appearance Package" that is installed by the dealer...the new rear fascia with the lower vents and the twin exhausts combined with the new spoiler add a whole new look to the car...the monochrome paint is a nice touch as well...I'd have to say I think I'd be willing to go for one of those. (why dont they offer a sunroof?)

Yeah, it does look a littl meaner, but then again, it is a little meaner. 400ci/400hp, the return of the small block 400.

I agree it makes the car look different but I am just not feeling it.
I am ok with the original rear look and the front sport appearance package. Still not enough for me. I'm trying to like it.

I'm not too concerned with them not offering a factory sunroof. I am happy with an aftermarket one. A dealer would just take it to an aftermarket one anyway.

I'm not digging it. It's too much.....plastic. It looks like a Toyota Echo. Too skinny to be sitting that low to the ground. Makes the car seem taller.

I do not like how the SAP makes the car look to square..it is a round car with a bunch of square plasic on it.

But a lot of people do like it.

Agree. I don't like the square rear. Also it reminds me that its a plastic muscle car. I like the fact they are trying.

I'm sure the aftermarket can make a more beautiful front/rear end.
