Calipers?
Red on black is hot....yellow would pop...Black would just make the calipers disappear.

Get the G2 kit.....easy cheesy and looks awesome. Ive painted many calipers. Its not hard to do.

but your first mod should be Tint.....then I would look at an intake and if you can swing it financially get a quality exhaust with a dual out GTP back valance.

MODS:
Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

thanks everyone.

and im going with yellow calipers as soon as i can buy some paint. and im looking into the hammerhead spoiler because i think its the only spoiler that looks good on g6s. also for the HID, what kind do i get? i don't really know much about them.. so if anyone could help that'd be great, thanks!

an apperance mod i did to my g6 was some led strips behind the 2 lower grilles... since i took out the stock grills and made my own (you can see that in my pic on the left) i put a strip of red leds hidden above the bottom 2 grills that way at when its dark it gives the illusion the grill is glowing red. or you could do it with yellow leds since youre painting your calipers yellow. here is a pic of it, its a pos camera so not the best photo.
The best part about it is that it doesnt break the bank lol after getting the strips and the switch i think i spent like 25 30 bucks
