G5Steven / Yellow '07 Pontiac G5 / Leesburg, FL

UPDATE 11-6-10

The Story:
I bought the car back in April of '07, with only 2 miles on the clock. I went looking for a Cobalt, but the prices they were posting with the same options as the 5 has ended up being 3 grand more than the 5. So I went to the Pontiac lot and was looking around, decided on a silver one that had the sun and sound package, but when I got to the showroom; it was sitting right smack in the middle. All bright and Yellow. So I told them to scratch the paperwork on the silver and start it on the Yellow one. Over the past few years I've put 91K on it, and still counting, only had a handful of problems if you want to call them problems. Needed the Steering Recall, Two Accidents, a coolant sensor, and the fuel module recall.


Exterior
*GT Front Bumper Cover with SS/TC lower grill
*Dodge Style RT Stripes on both front quarter panels
*10% Tint all around with a 5% 6" strip on the front glass
*17" Five X Mb Wheels with Yokohama YK520 235/45/17 Tires
*G5Club.Net Decals (YourCobalt.com decals would kinda be out of place on a G5, but they are pretty much sister sites it seems like)
*Gen 1 CCFL Black Headlights from K2 Motor
*Tinted Side markers and Third Brake Light

Mechanical
*DIY Autozone SRI using stock air box with resonator delete and K-n-N Air Filter
*Exhaust Resonator Delete with 2.5" Piping from the Cat back to a Flowmaster 40 Series and a 3" chopped truck exhaust tip

Interior
*Yellow Painted Trim
*Yellow Pontiac Dart Overlay on Steering wheel
*A-Pillars done in Marine Vinyl

Entertainment (This is still in the works
*Pioneer 6.5" speakers fitted to the stock splash shields in the doors
*Pioneer 6x9" in the rear deck
*480W 2ohm Amp (waiting on funds for a decent box and sub that won't blow)
*Rewired AUX input to be hidden in center console
*Ipod Controller/Charger installed where 12v Power source was and cord run to rewired aux port.

Trunk Space
*Threw away factory floor covering
*Replaced with 3/4" Plywood with hinges and Factory color matching Felt
*Spare Tire thrown away in hopes of using that space for a nice 12" Sub and custom ported Box under the Floor.
*Green Neon wired into trunk Light for added Lighting and effect.

not sure why you moved the aux input. just so it wouldn't look cluttered when you plugged in the ipod?

I like the intake bar, but why not throw a cone filter in? its not much more and then you'll have yourself a SRI.

trunk it amazingly clean. lol, mine has never looked close to that clean (even the day I bought it it was full of junk)

yellow on the speedo is a nice touch. gotta show my love to the rally yellow.

Yeah, I moved the aux port to get rid of the cluttered look. As for the stock air box, I need to find the correct adapter piece for the MAF so i can then attach the cone filter.

You know, I've never noticed this, but if you look at my brake pedal in the pic of the radio without the aux port, my brake pedal is only worn on the bottom right of the pedal... I guess I didn't realize how relaxed my foot is while braking.

Bump, I redo my thread, put a whole bunch of new pics up and I feel like the love for the G5 is not there. What else should I do to my car, besides lowering, since I am working on it. Any ideas? I like to keep it clean and simple as you see

Very nice. Like the color, and especially the relocated aux port. Mine bothers me now that I use my mp3 player all the time. One of these days I may have to do this too. Nice ride.
