Default New look for G/F'* Grand Prix

Bought the rims for my G/F yesterday. You might remember me posting my buddy Jons car with these on them. I bought them off him after he hit a pot hole and dented them but they are all fixed now. I also washed it, painted her brakes, removed the badges and changed her oil yesterday. The wheels have Daytona 500 pace car center caps and are the same as the ones pictured below... I havn't saw another set like them...
Tell me what you think...

Yes, I was just talking to her about the hood! I don't know if I wanna spend 700+ on a hood though. I think next is SLP intake and exhaust, I love the sound of those.

That car makes that GP look like right at home on there. I give it two thumbs up.

For the exhaust, if you can get the money together skip the SLP exhaust and get some Borla Mufflers and a cat from www.justmagnaflow.com (the SLP cat is WAY overpriced and flows practically identical), a u-bend delete, and a high flow resonator. You will not be disappointed, I gauruntee you that much.
I have talked to a few GP guys who have run both SLP exhaust and Borla mufflers and they all say the prefer the Borla hands down.
