Chevrolet Aveo, Sedan

Any Chevrolet dealer should be able to get the mud guards for you. As far as the fog lights go, if you are willing to pay I am sure you can get them since they are available in Canada. You can get GM parts at a pretty good price here:
gmpartsdirect - don't know if I can link that site.
You do however need to know the part number. Any service department can give them to you.
If you want to contact someone directly at GM headquarters I would suggest using email. They are usually very helpful. I don't really know if I can give names so I would suggest you go to the GM media site and look under Chevrolet and find a email contact in one of the press releases. If they can not answer your question they should pass it on to someone who can. Does that all make sense? I have done this before and have had email communications with people VERY high up in the GM organization. Good luck and let me know if you need any more help.

The Sport Red Metallic looks nice. Too bad you can't get it on the hatchback.

Thanks for all the links. I will try e-mailing GM first before I call them.
As for lask of an armrest- I have one in the Acura. There was none in the Corolla. The only thing I miss about it is the storage area for various items. If Chevy offered one, I would try it out to see how it looks and feels.

Isn't it odd how one market will have some options and other will not. Who is the bean head that picks these things. You should see what the car looks like in Europe with the sports pack on it. Talk about sporty!

Very nice. I'm not a sedan lover but yours looks nice in silver. The lack of an arm rest is odd. Kia and Hyundai have them standard. I only drive 5 speeds because I hate automatics. I can see where a person that has an automatic would really want the arm rest. Hopefully GM will listen to the customer base and have a few upgrades soon.
My only real moan about the car is I think the top of the dash and the back of the gauge hood should be black or very dark flat gray. Better yet offer a darker gray and maybe a tan interior with black dash top like VW... It my just be me but as it stands now the reflection of the dash in the windshield is annoying. Chrysler had this same problem when it first started selling Neon' s. The angle of the windshield reflected the light gray dash. It was so bad it was dangerous. We put a black dash cover on so we could drive the thing. That is another story...

Congrats on the delivery of your silver Aveo, fastdriver.
I bought a white sedan in February. We've driven it round trip TX to NY in March (sure wish it had cruise), now have 8000 miles on it. I just did the first oil change and tire rotation. Some South Korean gorilla torqued the oil filter on at the factory - I had to punch a screwdriver through it to get the leverage to remove it. We have been very happy with the aveo so far. The gas mileage is OK, but what really sold me on this car is the interior space, appearance and comfort, and the quiet ride. Also, my wife never did like the monster Dodge truck we traded in.

You must be saving a lot of gasoline $$$ driving the AVEO compared to the Dodge you traded in!

I took your advice and e-mailed someone last night at GM about this "elusive" GM "SPORT APPEARANCE PACKAGE" that comes with 14" aluminum wheels, fog lamps and mudguards. Besides the GM Fleet site, I also found it on one of the links at the GM media sites that you gave me. At the bottom of that page was the name of the same woman that I wrote to! No answer yet!
PS This screename is working again after several days of NOTHING! NO clue as to how it just started working again. I changed NOTHING on this end. Wonder if it has anything to do with how much you post and WHAT you say? Sylvia blocked my fastdriver2 screename that I COULD sign in with because she said I couldn't have two accounts!
