Looks nice. Check out the GXP diffuser, would go well with your exhaust.

Thank you guys :)

Yes, its a 2007, We had it introduced in ME with the launch of VE from Australia, earlier than the G8.

Interior parts that were changed like key & steering wheel I bought them through an Aussi online shop (holmart). Leather upholstery was custom job done locally here. Other mods like exhaust and springs were purcahased directly from manufacturers in Australia again.
dam it ... shipping from Australia sucks... but have to :( . With my previous ride I used to do modd shopping from US, geeez you guys lucky with the aftermarket competition there ;)


some interior shots for you

Exhaust by XForce, bought it direct from XForce Aurtralia. But shipping was the kill :(.
I dont know if you could get better air rates to US, but I paied some $1200 for express shipping.

but hell i recommend, noticed gain measured with my buttotronic dyno :), and sound is just pure sex (I haven't upgraded header though, just catback)

At first I liked the change from the light colored interior of my Grand Prix, but I think it looks pretty awesome in the G8/Lumina.

After little search and communication, ECU remapping was successfully installed today. Done through local dealer of "Viezu Technologies" (UK based tuner).

Lanching is drastically enhanced, with low-mid rpm range power. :)

No roller dyno around :(
Yet my more precise Buttotronic dyno reads a good 10-15 Whp. They had aniticepated 22Bhp up in UK, but I think it's bit better than their estimate.

Exhaust ... hella sexy sound believe me inside/out. Nothing that you can call "issue". There is only "little" drone between like 1700-2000rmp, that you don't even need any music to bear with it. just it's not like a stock sleeper car.

and I am HassAn too :)
