    Well, I mean, technically the 1st gen only had like 5.5 model years, and the gauge pillar was out within the first few years.

    For whatever reason, the aftermarket for the 2nd gen just simply didn't seem to exist to the extent of the 1st gen at all. It's quite odd, honestly.

    But yeah, absolutely nothing to do with the pillar bag.
    Well it's more to do with quantity of production than just model years...I didn't articulate my thoughts fully. There's a **** ton more Gen1s than gen2s.

    Yeah Chevy removed the "performance parts" section on their website for the cruze and I think the aftermarket followed suit around the same time. And now with it discontinued there is no reason for an aftermarket manufacturer to invest the time and money developing parts for our cars.

    I think there's enough out there though to make a pretty potent hot hatch though. I kind of like not having a million options too like a civic or something because then it's easier to diagnose and repair.

    I love my Redline HB. I get compliments all the time, it's stock. People don't have any idea what it is.

    Yeah right on! I feel the same way. Mine isn't a redline but it was almost everything I was looking for when I started searching. And I only have modest plans for it since it's my daily driver. I don't wanna do anything too crazy

    The performance parts aren’t on the Chevy website, but they are on gm parts direct, select your make/model/year, select the accessories tab and scroll down a little to performance

    That looks like the screw-on style. The ZZP pillars are molded in the same color/grain as the factory pillar, so they are a perfect match to the vehicle.
