New V6 owners!

I noticed there was not a thread for the NEW v6 owners. Just thought I'd start one and make some kind of introduction. I just bought my G8 last week. I remember all through high school I said I wanted a G8, the closest thing I came to was a G6 due to money. Now I finally have my G8 and even though its the V6 I love it! Its a great thing seeing the car I always wanted in my own garage. I'm looking forward to doing the simple mods like CAI and exhaust soon! Happy to be a new member here

Congratulations, man! I always wanted a G8 as well. I bounced from $1000 car to $1000 car until I bought my first G8 about a year ago, and am on my second one. The car will not disappoint. You will find the best tool for any job on your car, is this forum. Amazing people with lots of experience and knowledge to share. Enjoy.

Thanks for welcomes. I have a 2008 black v6 model. I'm looking forward to doing some mods here real soon. CAI and exhaust are a must and them some appearance mods. I'll be posting more pics as I get started though!

I can seriously say I love my car and don't plan on ever getting rid of it. Everything is going great with it. I'm now just looking forward to doing little things to it to make it my own!
