Just got off the phone with CDC. For anyone else considering this let it be known that just the shroud (No Scoop or Ducting) is $232. FYI part #115052.

Leo, you're new product finding skills are dropping . I found another one. It's a billet headlight ****

It's about time someone came out with this for the S197. But, I think it's ugly. Maybe MGW could make up something nice.

Well okay then here's a few new things.


Here's a couple from Steeda.



Here's the best deal of all.

LOL. I'll give you everything but the Steeda billet key fob cover. I believe that's been out for awhile from them...I know for a fact it's been available from UPR for quite awhile (which further proves my theory that almost all steeda stuff is made at UPR who then puts the steeda name on it)

That's just dumb.
Bill, I think I read it wrong. It unlocks from a button inside the car FOR 8 seconds (some for 10 seconds)... and then relocks if the gun isn't removed.

Sound better??

I had already looked into those when they first came out...expensive and FUGLY in my opinion.
Here's a stainless engine cover, also expensive, but it does cover up the valve covers.

And as far as Tom's shaker:

Thanks for the link. Unfortunately, it's even more expensive and fugly than MWAG covers.

That Steeda key fob looks pretty cool as long as it's thin like that.

$4873 and change for a Saleen S/C? I'm getting one right now!


... oh wait, I think I'm short around $4000.

Help me out guys, I am having thoughts, and I need your honest opinions. I was looking at a couple of photos of my car pre window and door scoops and I am starting to like it the more I look at it. I hate to take the scoops off after I spent so much money/time on them, but I would if I decide and try to sell them.
Here is a couple shots. The one has the Shelby stripes on it, but you get the idea.
VOTE & opinions on why please.

#1 WITH

#2 WITHOUT

Good god, just call me Leo, so undecisive.

Honestly, I vote without, because I like the stock smooth, cleaned-line look. In your case, I think that the scoops look too "tacked on".

I vote for Option #2,WITHOUT the scoops.

Let me shoot straight from the hip.. I am no longer a fan of fake scoops (although I did like them early last year). I even look down on the Shelby GT because of it's riveted on fake hood scoop.

You have a functional scoop now, don't mix it up with fake stuff.

You shouldn't have too much trouble finding a buyer if you decide to sell them.

I like your car better without the scoops. How ironic I was actually looking at my car yesterday trying to decide if it looked better with or without louvers.

LOL, no comments from me, I like the Bar.

Looks pretty unamimous on removing them. Looks like I will have a weekend project. Maybe I can sell these and put the money toward the CDC Classic Chin Spoiler I have wanted for so long.

That's what I like about this thread: you can give honest opinions and not have the response of "what about [insert mod] on your car" or anything of the sort. Unfortunately, that is a typical response on the other threads.

BTW, I didn't mean for my comment to be directed to you Daryl. I was just doing a general comment, as that's the usual response that I get on other posts.

Good call. I read fishing line or dental floss works pretty well in removing them. Heating them up may also help.

I think the bar looks good.

And, it also looks good without it.

The convertible looks good either way.
