recently behind the wheel of a G6


I recently traded into a Pontiac G6, it had never crossed my mind to look into G6s. Once I saw the panoramic sunroof and all the options on my Red 2007 GT, I knew I had to have it.

I traded out of an 06 Jeep Commander, i was really worried about stepping down from a V8 but the 6 has been amazing, great speed/power. I used to have a Mazda 3 a 2005, I loved it but it was just too small with a new addition to the fam, the G6 is like a grown up version of my Mazda 3, only better. I have a limited budget but I would like to do a few things, CAI, lowering springs, and the halo headlights.

I'll post some pics as soon as I figure out how to from my IPhone, I tried tiny pic but it doesnt see my iPhone as a computer, then I downloaded iPhone photobucket app but the forum keeps giving me file too large errors, so then I downloaded a resizing app to try to make it smaller but it didnt work. Anyone else post pics on the forum via iPhone?

What should I be concerned with regarding the pano? I noticed some lubricant visible on the tracks and parts so I assume I'll have to keep an eye on that, I've also heard minor noise coming from the pano when going over BIG bumps or sharp curves, but I don't mind that, you'll see me with the pano open as long as it's not raining or snowing, even if I have to have the heat on! :0)
