  2. Thanks . However I'm not a fan of huge wheels. Anything over 18" looks to big for me. Even the stock G8 19" wheels are iffy for me. I'm stuck right now actually. I have my winter tires on, Moda MD17 Black rims with 235/55/17 Blizzaks on it. (Love them...). I have the stock 18" rims with junky Eagle RSA tires on them. I have no intention of putting those tires back on the car except to road them. Downright dangerous in the rain. Im going to get new tires for summer only in the spring. However I kinda want to go staggered. Find some 9" deep in the rear and do like 285's or something vs the stock 8" deep 245's. Keep stock 245 8" deep in the front. I just to look up and see what fits in the rear.
  3. Well well. Lets see. Since then NGK TR6IX plugs, MSD wires. Vararam RAM-Air intake. BMR strut tower bar. Finished the LED mod, interior and exterior is 100% LED (Minus the front turn signals and HID's). Just installed DBA 4000SX Gold Slotted + Drilled rotors and hawk pads. Yep.
  4. Nice. Two GTO couples I know actually ended up getting one as a DD, both just had kids lol.
  5. Got it for a hair under $25k. I got $11k for the GTO, which is on the low end of KBB trade in range but considering it needed paint and other stuff understandable. G8's are holden (see what I did there ^^) their value well. You cant find a 2009 for anything bellow $23k private even really. Had 53k miles. Was another 2009 that was $24k, blue, with only 30,000mi near me but it had been modded, and VIS wasnt as clean, and over hour and a half from me so I passed. Lets do it! What week? I have class, im a FORDing mess Monday-Thursday, but any other night after 6pm or a Sunday I can meet up. Friday nights theres a car show every night in Newington.. only like 30+ Minutes from the Mass border, 45 in traffic. lol
  6. 2009 G8 GT. L76. Premium Package (Leather, bunch of little extras). Got it with 53,500mi. Traded GTO. Still miss GTO's manual.... Only real regret. GTO was leaking more oil every month, rear main seal was bad and tranny was coated. Needed paint/body work from scratches I put on it, and clearcoat was peeling where prev owner had it cheaply repainted. Rust spots on hood, and one on roof. Kicker was the rear diff making noises, make it sound like a truck over 50mph, and fluid change didn't help. Parents didn't want me having two spots in *their* driveway, likewise couldn't afford insurance for a second vehicle for a DD, and cash to fix the GTO up at same time, would have just sat for years, so figure it was time to part. Once G8 is paid for in 2-3 years hopefully I can hopefully have the money then to revisit GTO's. Pictures. Need to do a good photoshoot still these are quick ones I've got with phone... My nephew approves of the G8.. he hugged it and went "awww" lol. First mod, day after I got it. TCM and ECM. (Custom tune not a stock Diablosport canned tune... Whats neat about TCM is I left normal mode stock. Only changed Sport mode so it shifts into higher gears quicker in normal for gas, and kick it in Sport mode when I want to. THen of course theres manual mode. Still in process of fine tuning the tune. When done should be 20-30hp bump since stock GT takes 87.. this is for 93.. also disabled DoD / AFM for now. Then 6000K LED license plate lights..One shots for comparison Then 6000K LED Fogs (5 Watters, equivalent of the stock halogen and then some). One shots for comparison. Then 6000K LED 5watt CREE reverse lights. Classy. (Yes that's a 30th you can spot the wheel of in the garage..) I have 6000K LED H11 bulbs I was going to see if they were bright enough to use as low beams. (Since the LED fogs I got are actually like brighter than my stock lows now) but it wont fit into the opening (The bulb is too big). Either way I have 6000K HID kit I just got the other day I have to put in. I also have Bluetooth VCIM and Atari Gauge and Harness getting reprogrammed by Chris...Will add factory Bluetooth. All in all busy three weeks. Needs performance mods next. Tires will be first. Tires it came with are shit. Worn, I got them to give me $300 off list price because of that. I might just jump the gun and buy a set of Winter Blizzak's early since these handle like poo in rain. (Going from the GTO which had good tires and a good prob 50-60+hp and torque on this, the G8 is much much harder to drive in the rain with these tires...) Post all the pictures!! Went through and took a few hours to clean it up right Friday. Turtle Magic Color wax and scratch touch up, and waxed the wheels, and cleaned up every interior surface and glass. Shiny. I was going to install my DDM 6000K HID's but after 4 hours in humid 90F, some of it in the sun, I was done. Maybe today after work or Sunday.

  13. God. Drama sucks. My Ex's Ex is messaging me on G6P about stuff that happened over 2 years ago. I want it to end. Jist of it she lied to both of us and pretty sure she was seeing both of us at the same time. I didnt know at the time, however they ended up getting engaged and they arent anymore and shes making up lies saying I knew she was with him, and to make it better shes sayign WHILE THEY WERE ENGAGED which I know is a complete lie.
  14. Yea lol. You should see my early work on g6p. Almost everyone of my posts was like that. Wall of text. It got to the point where every post required cliffnotes LOL. Nod kidding either HAHA. Well at least he was expecting it and understood. As a clever GI Joe PSA once said.. Knowing is half the battle. As long as they have though somewhat in their head they will be fine and they will leave you alone... At least he wont get as fucked up as I did lol. Man my ex there was a whore. What i talked about.. the guy she cheated on me was the guy she dated after me. He got what was coming to him when she slept with like a dozen guys when she got into her freshmen year of college lol. That always makes me laugh. And a bunch of friends she was hanging out with towards the end of when we were together I didnt like and I knew were into drugs and stuff.. I told her to avoid them, and she got pissed off at me. Then 2 years later arrested for drugs lol. Lost all her scholarships she had for it too.
  15. Random person butting into random issue I prob don't know much about...however I cant even count how many advice threads Ive made in G6Performance over the years that are like this.. so maybe I picked something up... Sadie seems like you need to have a talk with him. Let him decide if its worth it for him to keep this up. I'm going to play devil's advocate here for a bit so don't hate me for it lol. Assume he's the average guy. I know how this works as I was in a simular situation about four years ago now, on his end though. It was however at the end of high school, senior year, and my now ex was a junior. I was busy with applying to colleges, college visits, and I started a new job that was like was like 30 hours a week on top of school and a boatload of school activities I did. (A/V nerd, in charge of it and I had to be at every Wrestling match, Basketball game, etc to film it and do the PA system..on top of Plays and musicals..). So I was busy. My girl at the time did the A/V stuff with me but its different when we're working vs other time as we usually weren't anywhere near each other doing different things. To make along story short, I felt like she wasn't spending any time with me, or making any attempt to see me or hang out with me. She kept hanging out with a bunch of her friends way more often than she did with me.. and it started to get very frustrating and I got very freaking pissed one time when she went on a trip to Washington DC with her best friend, then skiing in Vermont right over the weekend.. and she had already made plans with me for two of those days, one was a community service project with the local Lions Club that we liked to help out with with a few friends, another was a movie, release date for some movie we wanted to see and dinner after. She didn't even tell me she was going and breaking out plans till the day before one of them, and she was gone for a week. She went and saw the movie with her friend.. So I was pissed. Later during the breakup process she said she said she felt like hanging out with me was begining to be like a chore because we'd have to hang out when I'd be able to/want to. Looking back on it four years later it's funny cause my perspective's changed. I should have realized what was going on, as I had no idea at the time, even though it was quite clear that we werent spending time together. (Pretty much how perseptive any guy is, we cant see shit lol). What ended up happening was she ended up literally telling me to come over after work one day when I was tired, and beat.. and just breaking it off right there. It was literally like ripping insides up into little tiny pieces and scattering them to the wind, as I did not see this coming at all or sense ANYTHING. (Again, normal guy ability to notice stuff wrong in a relationship is quite horrible). I felt like I was basically given a ultimatum and said here this is how it ends you have no say in it. That's what was the worst feeling. It literally took me 6 months till I even had a footing on what was going on. I lost like 30lbs in two months from not eating cause I was super depressed. (mind you I was 5'11" at the time, and 180lbs, so 150lb is VERY VERY slim.) . It prob took me at least a full 2 years after that to actually recover. Not even going to say full recovery cause that never happens. I was with her for 3 years all through high school and had $3,000 stashed and was planning on getting a ring as soon as she graduated a year after all this happened (4 years together). Very bad feeling. However it got very better after 2 years mainly because I found out she cheated on me before I even started my new job and got busy. Then she started into drugs, and drinking, and she slept with about a dozen guys, cheating on her boyfriend she had after with all 12 of them lol. Then she got arrested for drugs, and now dropped out of school and is living in Colorado with a bunch of pot heads and drug addicts. That's beisdoes the point lol. What you need to do is sit him down and talk to him. TELL HIM EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL. Tell him EXACTLY what you think will happen if he keeps it up. Pound it into his head if you need to cause us guys have rock solid skulls that you need to blast through sometimes to get to us. You need to have him see what you see. Tell him flat out that its bothering you that you two never spend time together. Tell him its not fair to either of you if you guys keep having to keep this up and keep fighting because you two never see each other. Tell him it needs to be resolved.. and soon... either that or you two are going to keep drifting apart until you guys start to resent eachother... and thats no fun for anyone. Then give it a while. A few weeks, a few months, whatever feels right to you. If it improves, then GREAT! Hopefully you two will be happy together. However, if you don't see it improving, then you need to have another talk with him. You can give him another chance if you want, but you have to make him see that what you did try didn't work and youre BOTH still unhappy. Then hopefully, he will at least understand where you are coming at, and both of you can part on good terms and say さようなら, and hopefully he will get it and no one else will have to go through the torment I went through...
  16. Oh Joe I didn't know you were going back tonight. lol. I prob wasted the last 20 minutes you were with your parents damn lol
  17. School ones work out well too cause they're kinda open too. The one at my schools going downhill... They have meetings every Thursday night... but not till 9PM!! I commute.. can't make it, and they wont move it to weekends or earlier or anything... Their car show also used to be nice.... good number of domestics and stuff showing up, dozens of 600+whp cars... HUGE... This year they gave the "Best Domestic" award to a 300C with two tone paint, and LCD screens everwhere. No performance mods at all. Needless to say not one other award went to the domestic crowd that showed up. All import shit.. .
  18. Also why I don't don't do car clubs. I made the local site i run CTCarClub.com, but its just a place for people to post. No "membership" and I refuse to make decals even though a few wanted them. It just invites drama. Mark -- Malibu's are nice. Can get a nice cheap GMAC loan like 0% or 1.9% or something on outgoing 2010's now too.
