Hello guys,

I am new to the forum and have just been doing a lot of reading up. I sold the wifes G8 and replaced her with this. I have this problem of not leaving stuff alone. I added some Forgeline 20x9 fronts, 20x11 rears, added the tint, customized the front grill, blacked out the rear tail lights and lowered her on Eibach springs. She is all stock for now with just a AirRaid cold air kit and a my own HP tune.

Pulled the front bumper off and dissassembled the grill. The frame and grill actually come apart. I took it to my bud who has been doing paint and body for 20 years and let him to do the rest. He only had to mask off the emblem, prep and then shoot it.

I find this statement intriguing: "I sold the wifes G8 and replaced her with this."

Great car!

G8 GT I presume?

Fantastic upgrade, I'm starting to miss my G8 even though I didn't have her for very long.

I tried doing that but she threatened divorce.

No problem removing the front bumper? Breaking tabs and so on...

What do find you miss most about your G8? I am getting ready to demod and sell my G8 and then get into a V in another year or two.

The G8 was a great car. The auto trans in that car was very easy to tune and man did it shift great when tuned. That will probably be what I miss most abou that car. Thanks for the props guys!
