    Default Who has the trunklid bottom carpeting/covering on their V6 G8?

    Hello Fellow G8 V6 Owners,

    Just wondering if any of you have the bottom of your trunklids carpeted/covered from the factory? Mine has nothing and I've read that some V6's came with the bottom trunklid covered. I believe all V8's have this area covered.

    I had o buy mine. Watch out on the cost of the plastic push pins. Cheap bastards should have made it original equipment.

    Nope, mine came bare-bottomed. Got it from Pace. Yep, the pins were ridiculous.

    Yeah, I believe that item is specific to the V8 cars. Really is unfortunate because it makes the trunk look nice and clean.

    I got one in mine paid for by dealer. They thought all G8's had them and forgot to install so they ordered everything for free. NICE!!!

    Thanks everyone for your feedback. Sure is silly if indeed these covers only came on the V8 cars. Wondering if the new Camaro's will have the same fate?
    I can see GM wanting to save money but geez, this cars cost enough and these covers should have been standard on all G8's.

    Yep, only on the V8's. Too bad - all G8's should come standard with this.

    Not sure. I would try to locate a wrecked V8 and get it from there.
