Talking Suggestions for a girl...

I've loved the G6 ever since I started working with them in 2007 at an autobody/car rental shop. Just yesterday I drove off the lot with my very own black 2006 G6 GT. It's got everything I've wanted in a car.

I want to do some **affordable & legal** upgrades to it, if you guys can help out with ideas. I live in an area with a WalMart, AutoZone, Advance Auto, and a couple smaller places. I'm okay with ordering online also. My dad is incredibly talented & handy with cars but short on time.


I'm thinking along the lines of LEDs, rims, speakers, etc.


Also, the dash lights are red. I'm not a big fan. How much work & money would I be investing to change to white or blue?

Help? =)

Changing the dash light's are not expensive but require everything taken apart and soldering. Basically no one has done it or is doing it. LOL

If your gonna install a radio that's a good time to throw in some lights
i put led's in my cupholder, air vents, and under seats.

IMHO, black is one of the best colors the g6 comes in. it looks hot.

For appearance modifications i suggest picking a color that will compliment or go well with the black of the car such as red, yellow, blue, pink, or anything else.

once u pick the color, the possibilities are endless.

decal overlays, caliper paint, dash trim kits/ custom paint, colored leds painting the engine cover, colored gauge face, etc.

jus look at sum of the members rides threads and u'll get sum good ideas.
i suggest looking at lampoon's, and crazy j's.
robert and justin have the most modifications done to thier cars.
if u find sumthing u like, ask around and sumone can tell u where to get it, or use the search, it may have been talked about in a previous thread.

btw, i have a blk 06 gtp vert, and i'm slowly working on adding purple accents, i have pics up in my thread.

have fun, and congrats on the new g6.

2006 pontiac g6 gtp convertible - black
reflective purple overlays, airbrushed engine/fuse covers
soon to have tint, rims, dash trim airbrushed, and cai.

2008 pontiac g8 gt - liquid red
20' zinik wheels /toyo proxy 4'', airbrushed engine/fuse covers, hood vent mod, lower panel mod
20% window tint all around except windshield ,sidemarker tint mod, V8 6.0 side badges, holden rear deck badge, SS badges ,VE badge, chrome pillar side posts, custom axleback system(soon to come kooks LT headers and corsa cat-back), OBX throttlebody spacer, volant CAI, Superchips tune

Cool

well as far as a how-to for the light

if you go to Oznium . com there is lots of leds there for customizing lighting
you just need a power and a ground and you can put the lights anywhere. So much easier then a radio install.
Also led make no heat so no risk of burning anything.

but if your looking to do a certain look im sure we could all help you figure out how to go about doing it
