Back to Pontiac

Hello all! Brand new to the forum. I figured since I am in negotiations with a co-worker for his car that I am for sure buying from him, I would go ahead and join the forum. Within the next month or two I am buying a 2008 G6 GT Coupe from him. It is a wine red color with black leather interior and 18 or 19 inch wheels, I don't remember which. It has some cosmetic damage on the outside but the inside is flawless. The grill is throwing me off. It is a GT Coupe but the grill looks exactly like the GXP grill in size. Like the black one in the banner at the top of the page. My main reason for wanting this car is to do a sound quality stereo install in it... it's just a bonus that the car looks as cool as it does. Attatched is a pic of the actual car I am buying from him. So again, hello all... from this point I will be mostly lurking and reading and may post a few times until I get my G6.

Nope, someone changed it out. And they probably spent a good chunk of change. for some reason the GXP grilles were expensive as shit. Lucky you, I want a GXP front end.

He told me that it had been in a minor accident where the passenger headlight and fender were replaced by a Chevy dealer. He didn't mention the front bumper/grill but that makes sense now.

More and more information from the owner. It has the Monsoon sound system. One of the TPS sensors may be broke from when he got tires put on the car and they never told him about it. It has remote start.

Took the G6 out for a shakedown run... looking for any issues. Drives great, plenty of power, handles way better than the Jeep, brakes are great.

Issues:
1. Dome Light needs attention
2. Turn Signal Switch needs replaced. $17 brand new GM Part
3. Windshield washer sprayers need attention and adjusted
4. A/C Recharged a little
5. Small front end exhaust leak
6. Could use a tune-up and oil change
7. NEEDS A BATH inside and out
