: Saw A 2006 SRX

Drove by my dealer yesterday and there it was at the back of the lot with a
2006 DTS, both fresh off the truck.

First impressions was that the silver paint was flawlessly applied. One of thebest silver paint jobs I have seen on a GM car. Very evenly applied with no clumping of the metallics.

I think the new 17" wheels were an improvement, my GF did not.

Now to the important part. The reduced sills.
The new treatment of the rocker panels is less elegant.
more slab sided, since the multi angle of the rockers is no longer there.
It looks slightly aftermarket and not OEM.

I will try to get by the dealership in thenext couple of days to see what
the sills actually look like with the door open.

By the way this car is one of only 110 2006 SRXs that have been produced this year.
So I was surprised that this car had already made it to SC.

THX! Keep us posted! If it has a power tailgate, see if it's a smooth practical design! Good work.

Any chance you could take some pictures? Would love to see the new rocker panels . . .

See my new thread I just posted. Sorry my camera decided not to work while I was there.
