Default My 1995 Aurora with GXP rims....

Hello everyone, I just wanted to post my car over here since I did go with the GXP rims, which I asked about here.

The car is a 1995 Olds Aurora with 131,000 miles. I had it for almost 4 years now (Nov. 11) and I've done a couple of things done to it

Hopefully I get everything....

Exterior mods are;
30% tint all the way around, I repainted the bumpers and painted the lower bumper sections body color and the rocker panels (they're both gray factory), as well as removed a body line from the rear bumper (see pic 3). The front cornering lamps are cleared and I put a diffuser in to hide the bulb, the 3rd brake light is led now, I 'smoked' the reverse lamps some tint, I polished the factory SS tips, painted the engine cover body color, and Duplicolor'ed the calipers silver.

The interior is mostly stock with the exceptions of painted silver-rimmed guages, custom embroilered floormats, and of course the stereo, radio bezel converted to single din, the emblems added, custom tweeter location, and the bass control ***** in the center console. The stereo specs are:

Head Unit - Alpine CDA-9855
Speaker Amp - Infinity Reference 7541a
Speakers - Alpine Type-R SPR-17LS, JL Audio VR-400 rear
Sub Amp- Kicker KX1200.1
Subs - Kicker 04 CompVR15" (2)
Signal Processor/Crossover - Clarion MCD360
Capacitor - Power Acoustic 5.0 Farad Cap.
Wiring- All Stinger, Stinger Distribution Block

Performance mods are;
GXP rims w/BF Goodrich G-Force KDW tires, size 255/45/18, Cadillac STS strut tower brace, STS rear sway bar conversion, custom engine grounding kit, KYB front struts, and custom CAI, cone filter that'* boxed and wrapped in Reflectix

Planned winter upgrades (as in time off from school, here'* not really a real winter here ) are, EiBach STS lowering springs, complete 3" collector-back exhaust and 01+ Aurora steering wheel swap (thicker/feels better).

Enjoy!
