Tom's 08 GXP

So I had a 2011 Subaru Legacy and i gotta admit that car was fun. Me and my dad were splitting payments on it. He recently blew out his knee and is being forced to retire. (He's 59 btw). So i traded in the subaru and managed to pretty much pay it off. Looking around for my new ride i happened to spot a 2008 g6 GXP sitting behind a building. Apparantly the girl couldn't put any money to hold it so they tried to hide it. It has 58,000 miles on it but looks pretty brand new. The best part is i managed to get it for 12,900. They can sell for 18,000 or more here in Pittsburgh.

well moneys a bit tight since im a college student. but im going to debadge most of it. i want to leave the GXP part on. I'd also like to black out the headlights and tailights and eventually tint the windows. I know im going to get a pair of black chrome rims for the summer and put the chrome ones on winter treads. any suggestions?

yea id say red calipers...it would make them pop. nice car, check my progression page for other small things you can do yourself to your car for a reasonable price. i do all my own mods and none of them were too expensive.
