First mod will probably be tint. I have to say, the champagne color is REALLY growing on me. I was very hesitant to pull the trigger Saturday, but I did. Went and picked it up today and couldn't be happier with it! Updates to come soon, more pics here shortly.
Superior tint across from the fairgrounds in Milwaukee. They did my Buick. Absolutely epic shop. I have brought all my cars there, as well as dozens of friends from across the border of both IL and IN that I know continue to go there. Awesome work.

Also.. car looks good. Interesting how they built the exhaust manifolds into the cylinder heads on the newer 3.6's

Thanks, guys!

It's going to take some adjusting with the 8th gen. It feels a little bit smaller inside and the mirrors are smaller, but the ride and features are worlds better and the trunk is even more massive than the 03.

Thanks, I'll look into it.

I was going to wait til Thursday for the GM auction to get a white one, but the price on this was too good. The color is definitely growing on me.
