better late then ever...

Helle Everybody!

Aight, so I "joined" almost 3 years ago but haven't really had the opportunity to really do anything with this or my car till now. My wife and I have an '07 G6 GT sedan. Its completely stock. It actually looks exactly the same as the one in the upper right corner of the webpage. I've been looking online and through other threads on here as far as modifications I can do. I was hoping I could get some tips and advice on what my options are. Seeing as how its our "family car" until we get our SUV, I'm kind of limited in the performance mods...like loud exhaust (cuz of our daughter). Any info/advice would be much appreciated!! Thanks!!!

how bout an intake it sounds like stock till you floor it plus with painted covers it looks great.

and since you wanna keep your daughter safe yellow fogs they cut through the fog like butter.


at the end of the vid i do a comparison

Wow...never really thought about changing the color of the fog lights. Didnt know they could have that much of an effect. Thanks!

Does anyone have any tips on how I can improve MPG as well?

@becksmerc :: did you paint the covers yourself, or did you order those?

Yea after an intake and a tune I can get some pretty good mileage, but I do have to run 93 octane. But it's worth it

Also tires play a BIG role in your mileage, In fact. if you went with some aftermarket lightweight wheels and some good mileage tires you can really see an improvement.

I would say check out the Members Rides forums for Ideas. So many different mods and I'm sure everyone will answer any questions you have
