Hey everybody. My name is AL from Louisiana. I just picked up a silver 2012. Not a whole lot of plans for it yet. Interior, tint, hole patching, muffler delete. Strut mount bushings need replacing but runs and rides great. Hoping to pick up a few ideas and tips here. I'm on the iPhone so it doesn't seem I can post pics yet.

Thanks guys. I'm pretty excited about this car. I'm just getting back home from scoring a set of red and black leather G8 seats and the most difficult center console I've ever pulled. Omg those Australians know how to complicate things. Geez.
I mean, who bolts a shifter in from under the car? Seriously.

Welcome to the forum.

Most popular mods all seemingly stem from G8/9C3 interior swaps, cam swap with DOD delete, or supercharge/turbo.

I know that is pretty vague but I think it ranges from easy to hard/expensive.

Also I'm sure Eric will be along shortly to ask you to resize your photos - I think the standard is 1280x1024 - they are giant right now!

Hell I was feeling accomplished just getting a pic to show up. Now we're getting technical. Lol
Gotta get used to this format. No engine plans for now. No forced induction on this one. My last toy was a 03 cobra with way too much boost to even enjoy driving. I'm just cruising this one.

Realized this morning that I screwed up and didn't take the park brake cable from the G8. The guy with the G8 said he would grab it for me if he could before he scraps the car. I sure hope he does.
