'The Panther' 2007 G6 GT Coupe

had my ride for over 5 years and never did anything with it, went to go trade it in for a new car but found out my car is waaaay better than whats on the road... so here i am infusing new life into her:





today i started my MODs by getting her some new tires and getting the stereo updated:
Original:

After:

deets to follow and more (hopefully) to come

with the updated radio i got a back up camera, new speakers (no sub yet) & bluetooth even though i didnt think it was that much i put in the wallet says otherwise lol.

looking forward to adding more and posting

How does the metra not get in the way of your leg?!?

I'm not a big guy, but there's no way I could comfortably drive with that thing there.

What were you going to trade your car in for?

@ Redbulladdict
its nice, wish the Bluetooth music streaming was a little more fluid I still have to select to play a song on my phone so itll play on the radio (android phone) and I lost my original XM so that was a little bummer but I just need an adapter.

@ Dmanj
I got short legs doesn't even touch me, but I actually don't like it there only because its hard to touch the buttons but to fabricate something today was too expensive so I got a buddy that's looking to see if we can take apart the metra kit and place It in a smaller module that'll fit on top of the dash or top of the ceiling

I was looking at a bunch of cars: fusion, fiesta, dart, equinox, civic, pruis, optima but there a bit pricey and drove cruddy.

http://www.crutchfield.com/p_130X350...00BHS&skipvs=T

it was one of the more affordable ones that still came with a what i wanted Bluetooth phone/music, dvd/cd, hd radio and optional SiriusXm

i like it so far, sounds good, looks good (at least to me) and it was at budget

just got em today so far there awesome, im drinking all the milk so I can go to the market lol

they don't fit 100% but im guessing that's because some person side swiped my bumber and ripped off the plate and jacked it up a bit.

next up, Cold Air Intake then bumber fix and paint (hopefully)

yea everyone has some sort of fitting issue with them. me, I didn't screw in the outside screws on each headlight all the way in so there wasn't a gap underneath. there still snug too. and if you were skeptical about doin that you could stack up a few washers so its tight down.
