Everything I have been hearing says right after Thanksgiving the dealers willl start taking real orders. This is really starting to get exciting because that means in just a few months our cars may be rolling in just in time for spring warm weather....


Lets start getting this Forum Fired up and rolling, has anyone got plans for making modifications to their cars yet?

I was hoping I could remove the chrome bar in the top grill area and replacing it with a smaller Saturn emblem I have from my 93 SC-2 Making the top grill functional also maybe as a cold air intake for the engine.
I am going to modify a picture later and post it to see how it would look that way...

SO EVERYONE LETS GET GOING!!!
It's going to be an exciting adventure!

I won't really get excited until I see a real list of options and colours. When the Sky is no longer listed as a Future Car on the web site. Thats when I'll know it's real.

As for add ons to the car. I want to keep it factory origional as much as possible. I may however be convinced to put in some kinda after market turbo option sometime in the future if the Redline isn't offered from the get go.

I'm thinking new intake and cat-back exhaust. I probably won't do much more than that. Oh ya, and that luggage from kappashere!

Agreed!! I was thinking the same thing. That chrome bar seems to be a GM designer problem. Looks like the Chevy SSR, malibu, etc bar and it bugs me. I love the idea of a floating Saturn emblem.

Agreed. The whole bar and emblem must go! Should be able to remove without to much trouble, what is left behind may be a different story. Might have to make a wire mess insert for the entire opening.

1st of all,.. I appreciate everyones opinion here,..:)

but..
Nah,.. :eek: Are you serious?? The Chrome bar, A.K.A. "The New Face of Saturn", is hott, sleek, and kick ass! Looks nothing like the Chevy SSR or Malibu, but more sporty. The chrome bars on the Malibu & SSR cross over most of the front end and are flat and plain looking,...

The Sky's Chrome bar is Sleeker & Sharper,... and looks more similar to Acura's front end, but still has originality,... In my opinion it's much cooler.:cool:

Malibu = UGLY
SSR = UGLY

Also,.. the little flat "lick and stick" saturn logo's they used to use are ugly too,.. The new Logo is much better. Don't tarnish beauty with that... Now if they had a smaller version of the latest logo,.. That might be cool.

But,... To each his/her own

:cheers: I don't mean to insult, i just have a strong opinion on this guys. Were all cool though. I respect all of your thoughts.:cheers:

I like my sports car to be stealth. Usually all black with not emblems at all! I tend to remove all advertisiments from the car; even shaved the ones that are permanantly mounted.

Speaking of shaved. The automotive company I'm working with will be selling the "Magic Touch Door Openers" for both the Sky and Solstice cars. If you are interested, drop me a line. We will be selling them $60 off the retail price.

That's the only part on the new civic that looks cool.. :confused:
The Sky was shown at the Detroit auto show awhile before the Civic was shown. So Honda copied the Sky's Chrome bar. It doesn't really matter though. :D

Well, these cars were made to customize,.. and honestly, I can't wait to see what other people put into their cars. So good luck to you when you get yours. :cheers: I'm sure It will still look good, no matter what. I just can't wait till we take our first ride in our own cars.

"Magic Touch Door Openers"?? Does that mean if I park downtown that when a homeless dude rubs up against muh ride, that the door will open at his "Magic Touch"? Lol,.. JK :willy:

Can you explain what that does? :)

the magic touch panels replace the normal door handles and what they are are touch sensitive panels that will electrically pop open the door like the door poppers on street rods, but without the body work needed to hide the handle holes since they replace the handles and are painted the same color as the car.

They were first featured on "Overhaulin" on November 1, Chip Foose likes the product if that means anything to you. I was able to meet with Chip at SEMA, an honest car guy who is enjoying the limelight!

Tim,
Nice photochop,... That does look Kool. :cheers: Sorry I doubted you,.. but it's a big part of the front end, so I got a little protective of the Sky, not seeing someone yanking off that sweet chrome accent bar.

Also,.. I hope your wife is feeling ok :) and really hope she gets healed of all this. :)

That Magic touch is pretty cool. I would be worried about getting locked out though. If your battery dies and youve got no backup, youre pretty much done for. Still wanna get em.

Do one in stainless steel, really interested in how that would look.
I would if i could but all I have is Microsoft Paint that comes with windows... so everything I do is kind of primitive...
