Can you guys recommend something to take the glue of the windows? I want to take the tints off. I got limo tints which are way to dark for me... i already took rear tint off and it looks terrible.

to get the glue off goo gone is the best. but to initally take the tint off i did this on my car and it worked like a charm. no glue residue or anything.

^ Not sure if that will work for him. I've seen it used on tint before, but on tints? Not sure it has the power to get tints off...

The plasti-dip looks good!

You need to get an intake on it pronto.

Intake and 93 octane tune + i have modify tranny settings because stock is not acceptable.

As far as it goes for plasti dip, this one is not the regular flat black, it's anthracite metalic which looks 100 times better than the regular one. I was thinking about doing the trim around the windows but then i have to do door handles and plasti dip isnt best for that, it would have to be permament but i can give it a shot still

im still not decided about plates if i go with HEMILOL i will get too much attention... it would be cool though. i need more ideas, so far i like AUSSIE the most simple and clever

I loved my Kuhmo Escta 4Xs for the short time I had them. Replaced the DWS's that were disappointing.

5G SS wheels look great on the G8, never seen that before.

It's a crying shame that they didn't offer the 6MT as an option on the GT. Even worse that the police get the Caprice and we don't
