Smile It's No Joke!

No April Fool's joke here! Solo Performance finally got some ink in a national periodical. Check out the April issue of Auto Enthusiast magazine and on page 38 you'll find out how to bolt a Solo system on your G8.

Congrats, guys, on finally getting some big exposure!!!

Thanks so much...we were on a radio show last week in Colorado as well. We will also be on Two Guys Garage, a show on television. Little by little, we are making progress in getting our name better known. We thank all of the G8 community for helping put us on the map. All of us at SOLO really appreciate it!!

Congrats Solo! I just had my Mach Shorty and HFCs installed yesterday, and it makes me want to drive the car more again now! I LOVE the sound both inside and out. It is my opinion that it sounds a LOT like the corsa system, but for nearly half the cost!
I'm happy to say ... "I've gone SOLO!" Now all I have to say is ... When are you going to make something for GM trucks? I have a 2012 Avalanche that I'd LOVE to bolt a system on! Hint hint ...

If we can get one into our shop, we may be able to make something for it. We have a ton of projects right now that we are working on, but let me know if you can find someone that has one near our Mississauga or Buffalo, NY shop. Thanks
