Newbie looking to spice up the 6'er

Hey guys, newbie here. Just wanted to know what some cheap, quick and easy mods for a 2008 G6 GT Convertible would be? I want to start investing in my car, make it stand out a little bit. Any suggestions on where to start?

ps- it would help if someone could ever figure out this darn high pitched squeal epidemic!

welcome. I started with the cheap mods also. tinted tails depending on how deep of a shade you want(VHT nightshade spray). accent the grill with chrome door molding. eyelids(sprayed or vinyl). I sprayed my mirrors the color of my car. some peeps have blacked out the chrome window/door strip. These are a few things if your a do it yourselfer. check out the members rides forum & browse the g6ers pics for mods you might like. my gallery shows a couple of the simple mods. keep us up to date with your progress & pics

Easy and cheap are relative... lol

It's best to give him a list and let him pick what he wants.

You learn by trying. A few extra parts in case you mess up don't hurt either
