C5 Side Skirts & Front Splitters from Custom Exotics


Had a few messages and questions on the front Splitter and side skirts I have on my car..which do look great..

basically I have had them on my last two C5's , and its one of the best mods I think I have done to both cars for appearance .. it changes the way the car looks, fitment looks like it was meant to be there OEM type look, and in the case of the front splitter , the contoured look I much prefer the a straight curve.. the other thing is I had them done in gloss black , on my vert it had a great contrast to body colour , and in the case of the Z the black was a match for the body colour..

searched all over to get the ones I wanted, and thought looked best on the C5, these are very large items to ship from the US so costly ..

so Long Story short ended up getting them from Custom Exotics worked out at 600 for the side skirts, and 400 for the front splitter ..
then up to you whether you want to pay to have them painted and fitted by them.. I went for this option as the quality of work I have had done off them previously such as gloss black mirrors, rear spoiler, and a mega job of removing the house brick fog lamps out of the rear bumper, filling a plastic hole and then spraying metallic pewter! that level of skill speaks for itself.. also this option was much cheaper than anything I found in US , by the time you add tax, import duty etc and real killer is shipping as they things are very big .. its a killer.. no brainer going with CE..

anyway I'm over the moon with the way my old vert looked, and with my new to me Z ..

few pics to give you an idea
