2.4L I4 Ecotec. Stock.
Front. Stock height. Back.
On 4-16-08, my car was hit at an intersection. The idiot was driving this...
He got my hubcap, tire, wheel liner (plastic in wheel well), bumper. The worst part about him was he did not speak english nor spanish.
According to his insurance, Progressive, it was $500 worth of damage to my car. The stupid part about it was how long it took. Idiots at Progressive were actually "investigating" the accident cuz they said it was my fault that the other driver hit me at the intersection where the other driver had a stop sign and I didnt. Progressive finally sent me a check for $502.68 on 5-2-08. The other driver got lucky cuz I was about to hunt his ass down that weekend. And since it was only 3 little scratches on my paint on the bumper, I didnt want to paint it just yet...SO, thats $300+ in my pocket.
This is what I did with the cracked hubcap. Wanted to know how it would look if I did do it to all.
I took off the tail lights.
Took off the plastic from the side of the lights. Before Then I painted them. After
Did these myself.(different lighting angles makes it look different)
before new rotors after
before Stock I also painted the caliper to match. after
I painted the exhaust tip to match the car.
Something different until I redo the exhaust when I get the lip kit.
Chrome door handle covers. Something different for now and to be different from the other G6s in the city.
Before Upper Window Chrome Trim After
Before Projector Fog Lights
After Lights Off

Took off the head lights to add the HIDs.
Before Stock Bulbs with No Fogs VS 6K HID Lows with Extreme Blue HID Fogs After
Before HIDs are in and no Eye Lids.
After Custom Eye Lids
Directly in the light, the pic makes it look slightly purple but in reality it has a hint of blue.
These are custom, one piece eye lids that I created.
Comparison with the RK Eye Lids. Pics provided, and with permission to use, by reedaman.
I put the water mark on the pics. The pics are to show the difference between the store-bought eye lids and my custom ones. Its not that I dont like them, its just that the RK eye lids were not what I was looking for. I also added vinyl, that I custom made, to other exterior parts of the car.
Before Custom Emblem Overlay After
Before Custom Door Pillar Overlay After

Did the key hole (not shown)
I also removed the the square "GM" emblems and the "Pontiac G6" emblems. It looks better.
A smooth and clean look. The key hole looks smaller and better. Blends to the car more.
Has a 2" lip.
20" Verde Sinisters with 225/35ZR20 Toyo Proxes 4.
Bad ass tire pattern.

hey i don't have a g6 i have a pontiac sunfire. yeah i'll keep ya updated on the modifications being done
Clean ride man, looks really well put togeher, like the black/chrome mix.
I dont really like the Matte blue color, but Im a really big fan of the Matte black. And I have to agree with Mark that it would look much better with the AIT front bumper. If you go with the black, you might want to make your rims a matte black as well. (leave the chrome lip tho)Even tho I dont like the matte blue doesnt mean not to do it, cause it would definitely be very different. Keep me posted man. Im anxious to see what you decide to do.
Flat black would be the tits man!! I would soo do it if i had the funds. Please keep me posted Ghost.
