Took a flight there then drove her home from Albuquerque, NM to Littleton, CO. Total drive time was just under six hours and I'm beat. Here's a few quick pics in the garage. I'll snap more when its gets detailed. Absolutely love this car. The Corsa exhaust sounds beautiful. First thing tomorrow is 15% tint so I need to remove the Onstar antenna adhered to the rear window. I would like to retain the unit so does anyone have any suggestions on how and where I can relocate it and still function properly. I'm still searching for a replacement "shorty" antenna, but still have the question of where to put the antenna assembly discretely. I also planned on having the tint shop apply a 5" 15% tinted visor on the wind sheild but wondering if it would affect the reception of the AM/FM antennas.

Nice Purdddy lookin Car. I hate to see one leave Albuquerque as we hardly have any here:crying: I am not sure on the ant. if Onstar would still function well w/o. That drive is so boring until you hit the Raton Pass. That is definitly a good area to stretch its legs and the weather has been awesome for drives as of recent. Congrats again on the vehicle. Looks great and you definitly got the fastest color!

The front window tint will not affect the radio reception, it will still suck.

Thanks fellas. Tint looks great on the car. Decided to not have the visor put on. There's already a fairly dark one on there from the factory. Next on the list is a short shifter. I really dislike the feel and slop of the stock unit. Got some balls today and took her down an open stretch of I-70 till 140mph. Very impressed. Excellent stability and the torque is so smooth. Just love it!

that tint is just on with double side tape mine came off easy. and i never got around to putting it back on. its kind of an eye sore anyway. and my onstar still works i dont know why you need it. and the reception will suck
