Hey guys i'm currently looking at buying two different g6's. so i figured i would come here for the experts opinions.
car 1) black 06 g6 gtp 6sp man 50000k miles salvaged title coming from a lot 100% fixed for 9000$ plus tax and titling
car 2)2008 g6 gxp white sun and fun kit on it or whatever package has the whale tail hood vents remote starter. this is is a front end crash and has 70000 miles on it. the car is coming from south dakota and i live in mn so there is a chance when i switch title to mn it comes back clean. the car is still damaged in the front so if i redid the car myself i could get Eagle eye head lights and all the little extras. prob be out of a car for another 3 weeks but might be worth it. i can buy this car for 4350. and get a entire front end if needed for 2000. plus 1000 for frame straightening and painting.
i agree that is where the trade off lies. i mean i would love to have one of the rare 6sp man transmissions. i wish it was a 07 so then it would be pretty much the same as the 08 gxp from what i understand. http://eauclaire.craigslist.org/cto/3294358883.html this is my third option. custom rims and remote starter really the only difference.
option 1 is out i decided that i can get the gxp done for alot less and already have the after market headlights with hids installed hence saving more money over option one. and since i'm going to have to get a after market hood, because getting a used one is impossible unless i wanted one with out the scoops i will most likely be getting the one off of ebay to add even alittle more style. if you guys have ANY suggestions on which headlight/hid/after market hood/bumper cover/or grills to go with please chime in !~
Well at least you know what you want. Eagle eyes are the best ones to get for headlights, the spyders are garbage. But you probably knew that. DDMTuning sells quality HID kits, many users on here would agree with me on that. As for GXP bumper components, ask P Magic. Or check out his thread. He did a complete GXP bumper replacement on his car. Looks good too, there's a thread somewhere where he listed all the parts he needed and such.
I just took a gander, and there are quite a few on ebay (also the best price I could find) I'm running the stock lights as I'm not a huge fan of the EE. I've heard some sellers seem to have better quality lights, as far as sealing goes and such. But I'm really not sure, do some searching in the forum on the Eagle Eyes. I'm sure you'll find some good info
