Utsadude/2007 Pontaic G5 GT/San Antonio, TX

Herro everybody.

I'm Chip. I drive a Performance Red Tintcoat Pontiac G5. And I love her.

I bought her August 30, 2008. She was used and had ~27K miles on her. She now is about to roll over 70K. I drive a lot.

Anyway, she is a fully loaded GT. Leather heated seats, Pioneer speakers, sunroof, the whole shebang.

Oh, and she's the only manual I could find in Texas at the time...

I have changed quite a few things on her since I got her. And here is my mod list.

Mods:

Performance/Handling:
Injen CAI/SRI intake (stays in CAI form)
OBX header
MagnaFlow catted downpipe (soon to be gutted and replaced with a custom pipe with QTP electric cutout)
Ingalls torque dampener
Prothane tranny mounts
TTR solid engine mount
Eibach Sportlines
BFGoodrich T/A KDW2s 225/45-17 wrapped on the stock GT rims (soon to be replaced by TC rims)
Trifecta tuned

Exterior:
Black vinyl overlays for the arrowheads
Debadged except for the front and rear arrowheads
SS/TC lower grille
Homemade shorty antenna
Tinted tail lights
First gen headlights with 6000k 55w HIDs
LED front turn signals, rear tail lights, reverse lights, and side markers

Interior:
Custom gauge face with LED swap
Black headliner
LED map lights and trunk light
LEDUnderglow 7 color footwell LED bars
Painted black door pulls/bezels(whatever they are called)
Shiftstyle black leather shift boot with purple stitching
Pioneer AVIC-D3 with XM, Nav, Bluetooth, and iPod adapters (love this headunit!!!)
35% tint on front two windows
5% on the back three


Piktar time!!!

The day I got her





SS/TC grille before I painted it black. Bought it from another forum member...


The KDWs!!!




The new gauge face!



The AVIC


The headlights

I had one of them installed a little wrong. Didn't get into the bracket correctly... Fixed now.



Random



Do you like what you see YC?

Will post more pictures after I wash her and find a nice place for a shoot.

Thanks for looking!

Thank you. The only thing I don't like about her right now is the few scratches/dings I have from a few encounters.

My mothers dog climbing on my hood. Scratching it as she goes. And my buddy sitting on my hood. Leaving two nicely sized a$$ dents in it.
