Default tC's replacement

I wanted something with 4 doors a lil more power. I'm sure i'll get some hate, but it's to be expected.

It's a 09 GXP heated leather, 3.6DOHC "262hp" 6spd auto, factory remote start.

well...if you take the pontiac badges off of it, it almost looks like a tC, especially in the rear.

Can't really comment on the ride or reliability, but as far as looks go, I wouldn't say it looks any better or worse than a TC... except for the front bumper. Those Pontiac grilles are truly hideous.

meh those things barely run faster than a tC 15sec cars stock and v6 motor over the FWD is just a disaster but the torque would make it feel super quick

buddy dad has one runs 14.8-15.1ish on average w/ exhaust,intake, and tune

I would hope it runs quicker than a 15sec 1/4! Its not bad looking. I dont like the chrome grilles up front. The interior is pretty nice looking though. I do gotta say the 4 door looks much better than the 2 door version! Yikes

That pic on the bridge reminds me quite a bit of a pic I have of my XT6...

very nice... do they make a plain front grill? Like no badges and what not? I think that would look pretty sick

No plain grilles. I am just going to powder coat the mesh satin black and maybe wrap the chrome bezel in the 3m di-noc cf. Also have the chrome trim under the windows on the doors covered in satin vinyl.

Your car has crabs lol, 14.21 is not bad for a auto. Think some Black headlights and grills would do the trick. Nice car!
