Wow, I am getting slammed in my own post here. I like rolled edge too but I like these also. I tried to get slant/bent with rolled edge but they didn't sell them any more. Anyway, here are some daytime photos and I moved them up into the cutout a little more. I like them better now. They are a little louder then the old ones. Must get a little megaphone effect. In any event, I am very happy with them and they are better then the Cowbells any day!

I have the same Pontiac arrow in the same spot. The ones from the "Montana" rear hatch fit the best.

That one is from the GP front fascia. The G6 also has one for the rear trunk lid that I am liking a little more then the old style but this is what I have. Some people are into debadging the whole car but I like the badging and everyone to know they just got smoked by a granny car .

Jared, after looking at your car yesterday (while still sober), I did notice what you mentioned about the passenger side tip being too far to the right from the rear. Both tips look VERY close to the rear bumper too. Keep an eye on that. I bet both tips can be tweaked a bit at this point.

I've got a few pics of your car, and just HAPPENED to be filming vid as you and the family 'left' the party.
