      Make your Aveo an Aveo Xtreme (SEMA 2003/04 Aveo show cars)

      [Admin note: GM made two different "Aveo Xtreme" show cars. This 'Fritz-the-Katt Lime Green' one was shown at SEMA in November 2003. A slightly different yellow one was shown in 2004.]

      For those of you that want to make your own Aveo Xtreme heres a parts list, below...









      GM's description:

      Exterior:
      'Fritz-the-Katt Lime Green' exterior color
      new front fascia,
      wide rear fascia with integrated rear fender flares,
      new rocker panels
      roof-mounted rear wing.
      clear-lens LED taillamps
      Sparco brushed aluminium gas cap
      suspension lowered 2 inches
      12-inch front and rear brakes, dual pistons up front
      18-inch wheels and tires.
      Interior:
      Sparco EVO model competition front and rear seats
      Sparco Mugello steering wheel and cast-aluminum foot pedals
      Pioneer AVHP 6500 AM/FM CD, DVD, MP3, XM, 7-inch touch screen
      PlayStation 2 integrated into center console
      video screens mounted on the belt bar
      interior finished in optically enhanced Ebony paint
      source
      Make your own Aveo Xtreme:

      Start off with a Versus Wide Body Kit from Gravana: $1,600
      http://www.gravanatuning.com/applica..._Aveo_Body_Kit


      Next are the Rims and Tires: $789 from Custom wheels, car rims, truck rims, chrome rims, chrome wheels, discount tires
      Akuma Wheels N-005 17x7.5 inch Black Offset FWD


      Then Sparco Seats: $600 ea. I chose to upgrade to the adjustable seats for only $50 more. The original seats are the Fighter series
      Sparco USA


      Now here is where the options come in.
      # In the 2003 Sema version there is a new fuel door. While it looks nice, its a pain to install.
      # If you have a stock spoiler you are good. If you need to get one they are $176 unpainted and $226 painted.
      # You can move the turn signals into the headlight housing in the empty spot (commonly used for city lights or strobes).
      # The 2003 version has clear taillights, whlie the next years had stock. You can make yours clear by popping them into the oven to soften the adhesive and pulling off the red lens.
      # You should upgrade and paint your brakes for a better match of the SEMA show car.
      # The SEMA car has a black mesh grill, galvanised metal and black plastic are the cheapest/easiest to find.
      # The Versus body kit does not come with side air scoops that cover up the small rear window, they don't do anything but add a little flaire.
      # Both versions have chrome racing pedals and a dead mans/ foot rest.
      # You may want to fiberglass over the cup holder to incorperate two new guages. Voltage and Air/Fuel, or anything you want really.
      # The second show car (yellow one) seems like the kit doesn't get as close to the ground as the year prior (green). That's because the green one is dropped.
      # In the Show Car the rear bench seat is removed and replaced with two more racing seats. The rear bench weighs a lot compared to two racing seats, so you can put the racing seats in and have a custom roll cage installed.
      # With a roll cage, marine speakers (mount onto the piping) would look good if done right.

      Other Upgrades You might want (not seen in the SEMA photos)
      # CAI
      # Colored Silicone hoses and hose sleeves
      # Grounding Wires
      # Upgraded Spark Plus and Wires
      # Strut Bar
      # Engine Paint/Gloss
      # Neon/Strobe Lights (Tastefully done!)

      More Xtreme Photos for Reference

Inside, a black leather interior houses an upgraded entertainment system with audio and video capabilities.

      You must have a clear lense made to replace the red lens, or it will not have a lens... go to http://www.IznTrbl.com to get a clear lense made.




      Nice post man, well done on the research.

      both Aveo Xtreme cars sold at auction last year

      Reviving this old thread because I just discovered what happened to the two Aveo Xtreme show cars that GM made for SEMA 2003 and 2004...

      As we all know, GM was short on cash the past few years. So what did they do to help pay the bills? They auctioned off 125-250 custom and show cars from their collection, including both Xtreme Aveos!

      GM spokesman Greg Wallace [...] says he can't recall the last time so many GM collectibles have been sold at once. The cars, drawn from the 1,000 vehicles GM keeps at its Sterling Heights (Mich.) Heritage Center, cost roughly $2,000 each to store, maintain, and transport each year.
      Source: http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/co ... 850130.htm

      Here's the auction photo of the 2003 show car (source):



      And the description (from the Business Week article):

      2003 Aveo Xtreme

      Estimate: $15,000-$20,000

      Another SEMA job, this pocket rocket concept car has a lot of body panels that set it apart from the factory Aveo—a new front fascia, fender extensions, rocker treatments, rear quarter window scoops, and rear spoiler. It has a performance brake system and 17-inch rims with performance tires. Inside, a black leather interior houses an upgraded entertainment system with audio and video capabilities. Considering the Aveo is a kind of current-day Geo Metro, this car, too, will be a unique ride for some budget-conscious tuner freak.
      The MOST interesting thing is I was able to find a record of the sale of only the yellow 2004 car at the Barret-Jackson site:

      It sold for 10 grand!!!

      Considering it probably had next to no miles on it, that would have been a steal for someone to pick up. I wonder how much the 2003 green one went for. I couldn't find it on their site.

      Re: Make your Aveo an Aveo Xtreme

      I would love to know where I can get the Rear quarter window scoops?
      Like to add those to my ride.
