Man, The List goes on Forever...it seems

Alright, the '6 is stock, Bare Bones.

Want to do some visual mods before everything else (plan to make it a whole new car...under the hood and visually, but still keep the '6 feel/look...).

I've got this so far:

Wing (Yeah, I know, it's not everyone's cup of tea, I however, love it): http://www.duraflexbodykits.com/univ...2.html?image=5

Eibach's (Not sure if this is a viable applciation, any information?): http://www.tunersdepot.com/Suspensio...ble--1188.html

Headlamps (The factory ones are starting to...burn out. The wiring harness/electrical has melted the socket on the stock low-beam's.... I also have a pretty dirrect plan set up for the paint scheme): http://www.carid.com/2007-pontiac-g6...ts-315065.html

Want to get a FUNCTIONAL scoop also...just cannot find one that I like (I'm not a fan of the Firebird's dual slits) Anyone have any pointers? Is it possible to cut a stick-on and make it functional?

Rotors: Don't know where to start, just know I am sick of factory rotors.

Wheels: how much of a problem could occur from putting 18's on my car? It's got 16's stock.... Would love either of these...what are your thoughts: http://www.tirerack.com/upgrade_gara...2FBlack+Accent

http://kromedome1.com/wheels/paladin...&cmd=imageform

Tint: proabably 50% all the way around...not comited to the thought though....

I'm going to take a brake for a few (At least on this initial post; I know it's a lot of information/questions...).

second, please, please, please pleeaaassseee do not get that wing.... that will ruin ur g6 and people will laugh at u, even if it is ur cup of tea...

yes u can get ebachs a lot of people have them

yes 18's should be fine a few people have them on here

I just installed new rotors on my car yesterday so yes there are nice rotors out there for g6's. I got mine from r1 concept.

Awesome! Thanks for the information. The Headlamps being of poor light output is a surprise, for sure. But glad to learn that before I commit. Thank's a ton.

Love this response! So even with Eibachs I could potentially get as large as 20's. that is awesome news, because I don't think the Paladin's come in smaller than 20 inces.

You could get your headlights and do a retrofit to them. Then you'd basically have the best light output you're going to get on these cars.

I also wouldn't even bother tinting if you're going to go 50%. You will barely be able to tell it's there.
