yep that's what they go for now. I've seen them sell as high as 600 bucks! :eek!: I almost bought a dozen of them from a dealer a few years back to! Figured.. ah.. they will be around for awhile! Kick my a$$! I'm sure someone will be making an aftermarket one soon :wink: :D

I got one 2 summers ago. Had my dealer check last week for old stock but none have the T6 logo just plain. I was gonna buy some back then too, but they had like 15 in the warehouse! :dunno:

Look at carmotorsports.com as they have for the GN

I saw a good replacement last summer at a Buick club meeting. A guy had a mural of an Indian woman sitting by a lake painted on the inside hood of his GN. I stood there staring at it in total disbelief and of course he assumed I was admiring it. He began telling me where I could get mine done. :confused:

You need a licence to reproduce that logo for one. The second problem is it seems they were screened before the "turbocharged" area was punched out. And if you don't screen it properly it won't hold up to the heat under the hood.

They can keep them at that price. Glad I got a new one couple years ago. If I ever need a new one I'll buy a plain new one, know at least a couple guys who do killer airbrush work. High heat paint and they could repro a better looking one that would hold up well I'm sure. More than one way to kill a cat..... :yup:

I wouldn't even pay what it's currently bid at, which is $ 275, let alone the buy it now $ 475 sticker shock price. This is really getting insane.

I took mine off a while back and the hood looks better without it IMO :yup:, I would not pay more then $100 for it. Unless it is a show car then go ahead, but to spend $250+ on a piece of insulation is :crazy:
