VENDORS, check this out - Accessory Wish List

Guys,

I want to start an Acadia Accessory Wish List here so that vendors who make such things have a good idea of what aftermarket accessories we are wanting. Let's try to keep the general chat to a minimum in this thread and devote most of the posts to listing (and describing, if necessary) the upgrades and accessories we'd like to see made for the Acadia. It can be anything you want - something completely new, or just a better/different version of something already out there. To make each accessory request obvious, please put it on the first line by itself. I'll start...

2007 Acadia SLT1 (Carbon Metallic/Titanium, DVD, Convenience, Captains Chairs, Cargo Pkg, XM, outlet) photo album<br />2010 Camaro 2SS/RS (Summit White/Beige, RS pkg, Sunroof, 20" Polished Wheels, 426HP of Pure Evil!)

INTEGRATED RUNNING BOARDS

I'd like to see running boards that sit flush up to the body and feature an integrated look, much like those available for the Buick Enclave. I'm really interested in getting running boards so my daughter can step into the Acadia without assistance, but don't care for the GMC OEM "chrome tube" ones available.

I agree! We actually ordered ours with the running boards, and then had them REMOVED and our money refunded because they looked horrible! Totally chrome and *ghetto* looking, my husband said. It was just too much. I would way be up for some matte black ones, or custom colored integrated running boards.

Custom color taillight covers

Well since I have a red jewel it would be nice if someone made a taillight just like the stock one, but with a red lens instead of a clear one. I have thought about covering it with a translucent red vinyl, but Iím afraid it would look cheap. I just think it would look cleaner if the back end was more color matched.

Bluetooth Kit

Integrate this into the mic/speakers in the vehicle. Easy to install and setup.

Tail lights with amber turn signals. I can't believe they couldn't afford separate wires and lights for brake and turn!

ipod integration module

If they start designing now, they might beat GM to getting one out.
