    That should be an option offered by the factory on all colors. If you can get black wheels, then you should be able to get the matching grill.

    Re: Black Chrome Grille

    it actually is a factory order-able accessory aka LPO accessory (your sales person should know what that means)
    basically it comes to your dealer with the factory grille and during the PDI they install the grille you ordered the car with
    what happens to the factory grille is anyone's guess (probably ends up on ebay or something)

    that's exactly what happened with the white car in my pictures earlier in this thread

    the owner-to-be (who backed out of the sale and lost their deposit) ordered the vehicle with red calipers, white diamond paint, satin graphite wheels and the black chrome grille

    the other options were factory options but the black chrome grille was an LPO accessory
    the car and the black chrome grille were shipped to us simultaneously and when we checked in the car we put the black chrome grille on

    So Chris, why is the LPO option on a new car $870 and aftermarket ordering through you SOOOO much cheaper? I know you hook us up, but even the list price is cheaper. I ordered this option on my new V and should have just ordered from you! And i'm making sure I get my standard grille back. Ain't no way i leave the dealership without it!

    Re: Black Chrome Grille

    the only thing i can think of is that if you order it with the car then it gets covered by the factory bumper-to-bumper warranty while it only gets covered by the standard 12 month parts warranty if you order it after the fact ...

    as it is right now though we are having a hard time even getting them due to supply not being able to keep up with demand
    (or something ... i haven't been able to get a straight answer from GM besides that there's a hold and only LPO orders are going through)

    Makes sense. Thanks for the reply Chris. Was similar when they reserved the yellow calipers for new cars before you guys could get them readily. I feel better now!

    Re: Black Chrome Grille

    That really isn't all that bad of a price. What about black chrome for the window surrounds and the trim at the trunk lid for a coupe!? :P
