The Car I Didn't Even Like

Hey everyone! So here's the deal. Two and a half years ago, i wanted to get something newer. I had a turbo Volkswagen that I loved, but it was just getting outdated for me and with school I needed something a little better on gas and just more reliable. So, looking around at dealerships, I found a grey (Carbon Flash Metallic) 2009.5 3.5l G6 sedan. I liked it for about 6 months and then got bored. Drove it just as a daily for a long time. Anyways, I've always been into fitment and had been looking for another car to slam to the ground and scrape around town in. Long story short, I was about to buy a Toyota Cressida, when my friend just said, why dont you just do your car. Thought about it for a second, and long story short, I have wheels (18x8 +40), 215/45r18's, and a set of Megan street Saab 9-3 coils on their way to my house. Probably gonna need spacers for at least the front. The back will tuck, but I'll see what happens when they get here. Who thought of the 5x110 bolt pattern. Talk about a horrible selection of wheels! I'll post pics as it come's together! If anyone knows how to adjust the camber on these coils after you flip the tophats without adjusting caster at the same time, that would be helpful by the way. The adjustment is at a strange angle. If anyone has a really well fitted G6 i'd love to see some others! Post up!

Also, I'll have a set of 5 spoke mag 17x7 stock wheels with tires if anybody wants to buy them! Two of the tires probably have 2000 miles on them the other two are probably 60%. Slight curb rash in two inch long spots on the edge of one wheel.

you have to redrill the top hats to line them up properly and no need to flip them upside down, I think I showed how I drilled it in my progression on G6performance.com got banned from their tho cuz there were a few certain doucebag moderators that always had to put their 2 cents in on shit they knew nothing about didn't like being corrected when they were wrong, but ya, to install the coilovers the PROPER way you have to mark and drill the top hats I think just 2 holes on each side cuz the 3rd I used an existing that lined up, its been a LONG time since I did mine
