Hi guys! I haven't been much of a contributor to these boards, but I have used them for reference since I purchased my G6 a year a half ago. I own a 2006 G6 2.4L Sport Red Sedan. I haven't seen a lot of people (any that I'VE seen actually!) with a red sedan on these forums so I'm excited to be sharing it with you all!
My car has held up very well and I have had a lot of fun working on it!
Lucky for me, my 2.4L G6 was loaded with a lot of the premium options (remote start, premium steering wheel, nicer wheels, power pedals, etc.!) but it would still be my baby even without them!
My G6 when I brought her home in 2010
Here she is as of a week ago:
One of the first somewhat serious mods I did was replacing the stock headlights with some chrome Eagle Eyes. It took me a very long time to decide whether I wanted the chrome housed lamps or the black ones, but I figured the chrome would match better, and I didn't want an overly dramatic change to my headlights. Chrome it was!
Halos/Projectors... much better!
One of my best friends bought be a cheapo exhaust tip and after I somewhat jokingly put it on, I was actually pretty satisfied with the look haha.
He also bought me that $4 faux antennae fin that I spanked on there (perfectly centered, mind you!) and I actually like the look of that too
I also added some black/red floormats, a matching steering wheel cover, and I "recolored" the interior trim. I say recolored and not "painted" because I didn't paint them: I removed them (even the PITA shift plate), I sanded the original faux wood off of them, got a grayish color because it's black plastic, and then I coated them with a couple layers of lacquer to get a deep glossy black color. The pieces came out well!
Kind of a crappy picture and a crappy shot of the car but it works:
