    Dealers are your best bet.. someone on facebook was selling a few at one point for 800 bucks each set.

    Now they're hard to find and order ..Good Luck! I purchased mine 8 years ago from my dealer after some asshat cracked my cover. I only paid 275 bucks. I think the dealer is charging over 1000.00 now.

    This is what I get for procrastinating on buying it... heh. I'll contact Karo just in case.

    Depending on location I have contacts for around 900 ish for a cover....cover only.

    Updated - I can source one for 890 pick up only through a contact I have in the parts biz.

    If I had it to do over again- I might be inclined to source a Holden Fascia (that still works with our hood), especially with a fascia approaching a grand. Being debadged, a lot of drivers have no idea what my car is, and an Aussie nose would further that.

    Scour old Forum (both of them) posts, you might find someone who still has a GXP fascia sitting in their garage with no G8 next to it.
