Default Expression series?

Sorry if this has been brougt up here before, but I couldn't find anything scrolling back through the older message boards.

The Saturn web site has a page that talks about the "Expression Series," a set of optional aftermarket equipment supposedly available at Saturn retailers. I attended the Syracuse Auto Show today, and asked about it at the Saturn booth. The rep said she had heard something about it, but would have to check into price and availability, and get back to me.

I have a lot of questions about this -- I'm definitely interested. My eight year old SL2 is due for retirement soon, and I'm giving strong consideration to an SC2 with some of the engine and handling mod's that are supposedly part of the Expression Series offering. Has anyone even found a retailer offering this?

Check with your local Saturn retailer..... the official launch date for the "Saturn Expression Series Performance Parts" was 02/15/02. Consider it a late Valentine's gift. The products available are as follows:

HKS Exhaust System
Xenon Ground Effect Kit
Autotecnica Pedals & Shift Knob
California Dream Spoiler
Progress Group Lowering Springs & Strut Tower Brace
American Racing 15" Wheels

As always, there's the promise of "more to come"...... anyway, I hope this helps your decision. I have a 2001 SC2 Manual and love the way I can still surprise people in it.

Is that a revised list of available products because last I read the ground effects and spoiler were being done by GT Styling and HKS was also going to offer an air intake system to go with the exhaust system?

Refer to the following for details:

http://www.autointell.com/News-2001/...-25-01-p10.htm

So is this stuff available? I've been talking to my Saturn dealership forever now and when I first brought the topic up, they looked at me like I was heavily intoxicated. Now they tell me that they are still looking for answers. The problem may be that I live in Canada.....who knows. But I'm sure that the dealerships up here should still be able to get their hands on this stuff if it is actually available down in the States.

Is there any web sites or phone number of dealerships that are currently selling this stuff?

Yep, there have been a few changes since the announcement in July 2001 but, as far as I know, the parts that I listed are now available. I don't think that living in Canada should keep you from getting these parts from your local retailer..... maybe you should check at another facility, jaysc2. I could give you the info for my local retailer but, I live in Pennsylvania and I'm sure you could find something closer. Let me know

I was just at Saturn of Indianapolis and they have the Expression Series accesories. They also had a coupe with all the accesories on it. It looked really good. I really like the new spoiler that will be the first thing I get.

Question Just a Q

01sc2 boi or Galileo, can the "Expression Series" products be fitted to first-gen or late '90's Saturns, or are they limited to the '00-'02 models?

GR898SL2....... Unfortunately, the body kit pieces only fit the 2001 - 2002 Coupe models. However, the other Expression Series components will fit on your 98 SL2. Have you tried taking a look at www.srcperformance.com yet? I don't know what their customer service is like but I know they're working on several Saturn body kits.

Thanks, Galileo.

Right now, my inquiry is more out of curiosity as I am in the process of finding a new job and money is an object (gotta keep those bills up-to-date!).

Once I get settled, I may just look at those American Racing wheels and a performance exhaust.

Where in Canada do you live? I work for a Retail Facility in Canada, and can get you most of the expression series parts, some of them were excluded from the series because of quality problems, so as of right now, there are limited parts available, but I can help you find what you need, just let me know!!

Hmmm. Actually, I did check, and also at the auto show in Syracuse, NY a couple of weeks ago. They didn't have any answers at the show, and no one has called me back. I *should* call Saturn of Syracuse to follow up. But so far it sounds like I got the same reaction when I asked about it that some of the others posting to this thread did - mostly, one of confusion. Hopefully that will change soon.

sweet2002sc2,

I'd like some more information about what is available here in Canada from the expression series.

I'm from North Bay, about 3 1/2 - 4 hours North of Toronto. Prices, availabilty, etc. would be great :-)

Thanks,

Tom

I live 30 minutes outside of Toronto. If you could post a rough product list with pricing I would be sooooo happy! Seeing as it is still snowing here, I don't think I'll be doing anything immediately but I'd like to know what things will cost so I can determine how much I'll have to put aside for this.

Thanks.

FYI...... If your Saturn retailer says they don't know anything about the Expression Series parts, tell them to check the Parts & Accessories Bulletin No. 02-PA-02. It should list the most current information for these parts. If they still don't know anything, then maybe they want you to spend your money somewhere else!
