Finally Joined!

Greetings fellow G6 owners!

I've been reading articles on this forum since I purchased my G6 convertible last year (it was my treat to myself when I came home from Afghanistan), and the posts here are very helpful when it comes to learning the many personalities of this car.

Before joining the military, I pulled wrenches professionally for several years, so I have a deep love for cars - I bleed GM blue.

Looking forward to being an active part of this community!

Mike

Lampoon,

Thanks for the welcome!

It's a black 2007. The photo was taken the day I brought it home. It has since had the following done:

Drill/Slot rotors from R1 Concepts & black painted calipers
Exhaust (mine had that infamous resonator whistle)
K&N Typhoon Intake
JET Throttle Body
JET Stage 1 chip
Bluetooth phone/media module
Interior wood grain trim changed out to silver metallic (because why wood grain? seriously...)


I also had to compound the paint on the entire car. Whoever owned this poor car before me did not take care of it at all. It had some type of white speckled overspray on it. Only thing that would take it off was a clay bar. Then I compounded - there was a huge gash in the driver side door. I couldn't believe it came out. The paint came back to a gorgeous deep black, and it's looking pretty sweet now.

I am doing an LED conversion for the whole car - got the resistors ordered, so that will give me something to do while I'm on leave next week.

Visible in front of it is my other pride and joy - a 1990 Buick Skylark Luxury Edition (only about 2000 of them made in that package) - looks factory new and has 400K on the clock. Also black. Is there any other color?

The G6 is my daily driver now, since the Buick was racking up the miles pretty quick. I drive about 80 miles to my duty station (one way). I figured a daily driver would be better, and I actually went looking specifically for a black G6 convertible. I think I can count on one hand the days I went to work last summer with the top UP!

Mike

Welcome Mike! I considered the convertible, but went with a GXP coupe instead. What can you tell me about your Bluetooth module? Is it reliable? Does it interfere with OnStar or the stock radio? That's the only thing I wish my car had!
