09 Vibe GT Finally Postin Pics


Recommended Posts

This is my 09 Vibe GT. I am seventeen and this is my first car. I would love any suggestions and help. My dad is pretty strict on how I mod my car, but eventually I want to black it out.

So far I have 50% tint on front, and 5% on the back, 2 12" JVC Arsenal 3000W max subs (they hit so heavy), JVC Arsenal Amp, and OS? capacitor i believe. I just bought some black overlays for my arrowheads, and soon will buy a FlyEyes kit to smoke my tails. I also want to make the chrome on the arrowhead orange with vinyl, and tint the fogs orange. Soon I will be getting the rims painted black. Let me know what you think!

Nice Vibe. I don't know about painting the rims all black though. What about just the low spots on the rim black and see if you like it? It's just a thought.

For up grades, sway bars, tower braces, and a short ram intake or cold air.

I want a cold air intake, but I'd have no idea how to install it ;)

I'd say its a moderately easy install because I'm sure you'd have to take off the bumper and/or headlight but other than that's its a matter of removing the stock air box and putting piping in.

Also about the rims, I really want black rims ad figure that it would be a lot cheaper just painting them since they are good lookin rims

Welcome to the site!

Vibe looks slick. Anything else in store for it?

Smoked tails, orange vinyl the chrome on the arrowhead, black rims, cold air intake, orange tinted fogs and an in dash radio touch screen. I have to get all these past my dad ;)

Nice.

Those factory wheels are slick, by far the best I've seen, factory equipped-wise.

Get mods by the parents? Do what I did, just do it and see how long it takes for them to notice after the mods are done. ;)

"Are those new wheels?"

"No,"

:lol2:

Did your dad help pay for the car at all? If so, I could understand. If not, tell him to back off.

I remember my parents telling me to not mod my GA when I bought it back in July 07 :lol2: I laughed. Then laughed some more. Three weeks later I had my dual post mirrors and exhaust done. :lol2:

My parents really never told me no but we're like "You're wasting your money" in which I nicely replied "Its MY money isn't it!" lol and my dad has always thought I went in to everything with a blind eye that I wasn't getting a good product, price, etc... when there is nothing further from the truth.

Turns out my parents always say they want my car now, especially after the tinted tails which my dad annoyed me for weeks about, first thing he said when I put them on was "HOLY CRAP those look good!" exact quotes.

I'm not saying go against your parents but show them a photoshopped version of it on YOUR car and maybe they'll change their minds about some things

Thread moved to "Progression Place" since it has turned into more that a welcome thread.
