Default A few spring G8 pics...

I finally got around to taking some pictures of the G8 with the nice weather today (helps having the day off too).

Some mods that I have added since last year include the GXP rear diffuser, PM-FL axleback exhaust (nicer tips) and the SX front lip spoiler (talked about in an earlier poll).

Let me know your thoughts... not sure what else I am going to do this year with my wedding ($$$) and all.

Regardless, the reflections are beautiful!

That is the ugliest G8 color I have ever seen!!!!

Looks gorgeous! I can't wait to get my summer tires back on this season.

Do you have a video clip of your exhaust?

I don't have a sound clip of it, but there are a couple on You Tube. Just search for G8 PM-FL exhaust and you'll find a couple videos.

Looks really good. Are there body colored reflectors you can get for the orange reflectors up front?

There are clear reflectors available. Eventually, I plan on purchasing them and then getting some amber LEDS as well.

I really like the chin spoiler, but the bottom of our front bumper is already curb scraping low.

Yup... about 6" off the ground on stock suspension. I'm more afraid of parking bump stops than anything.

It's on the list. I would like to get some black 5-spoke or twin 5-spoke with a polished lip.


I don't think I'll have much more going on this year, but I already have a list of mods to do when I have the extra $$$:

Intake/Tune
Headers/X-Pipe
Coilovers
Wheels

It is definitely time you pep up that motor a bit. Glad to see you are aiming toward 5 spokes.

Nice! I plan on getting those reflectors tinted along with my tails. Is that an axleback or catback exhaust you have? What do you clean your tips with?

I could have sworn someone told me that there are only axlebacks for the G8.

Do you mean for that brand? I know you can get catbacks from corsa, borla, magnaflow and kooks.

Edit: Kooks would be an xpipe and axlebacks...so kinda the same but sold as separate items.
