So...I think its time I actually made one of these as its been long overdue.

To start,I own a 2006 Pebble Ash Metallic 6i ATX appropriately named "Pebbles". Bought her in the winter of 2012 w/84,xxx miles and shes still running strong at close to 110,000. At the time,I was opting for a Speed6 but alas,my gf didnt know how to drive sticc and wasnt willing to learn,so sadly,ended up going ATX.

Nevertheless,I have not regretted the purchase. My intentions w/this car was jus as a family/work car but of course,we know how that all goes. Started w/a simple purchase of LEDs for the map lights and doors,then I ran across the mod section of the forums and well...lets just say the flood gates went flying open.

I like to be different in things I do and take no exceptions to cars. As of now,Im the only 1st gen 6 in Hawaii running switchbacc turn signals w/the DRL mod as well as running custom made switchbacc sidemarkers I made out of boredom.

Anyways,Ill let the mod list and pics do the talking. Mahalo for stopping by to checc out the build and I hope ya'll enjoy.

Here ya go, buddy! Just save the picture below and upload it to an image hosting site (Photobucket, imgur, etc.), and add the "IMG" code to your signature.



I can't remember off the top of my head how to link the image, but I'd be more than willing to find out -- if that's something you want to do.

Haha I've never been good with Photoshop either. I downloaded this free program called Paint.Net and it's like photoshop but much more simple. I've just kind of been goofing around with it. I'm just like you though, I got frustrated at Photoshop and gave up haha

You know what your car needs? An authentic Autoexe carbon fiber rear spoiler. I got rid of the car a long time ago but kept the spoiler to sell but never got around to it. PM me if you're interested. Good to see a local 6 on here again.

Ahhh.I been tryna connect wit more local 6s' and tryna get the 6 scence bak in Hawaii again. Its a shame you got rid of yours though.

As per your wing,it wouldnt happen to have been on a siler pre facelifted 6 with an illest sticker on the wing would it?

Theres only one Autoexe CF spoiler I know of on Oahu and it was on a silver 6. Lol. Ill PM you for details on pricing of the wing. Might jus be interested. Thanks cuhzin.

You talking about this one right here? How do you know about my car?

I was close to buying your car when I was first shopping for a 6. Lol. Your 6 was at a small private dealership by Pizza hut in Pearl City. Would scope it out every now and then when I was in the area. I remembet the car because of that I<3Calculus sticcer on the back.

I think it had the Ultraleggeras on it with the Ebay LED tails. Interior still looked real good and the only thing that stopped me from buying it is that the dealer told me white smoke was present upon start up and when driving.

After I bought the 6 I currently have now and started doing research on suspension and wheel setups for the car,yours popped up quite often,especially on 6Crew. Haha. Thats how I knew of only one 6 on Oahu that had an authentic Autoexe rear wing. When your car was being sold it had the factory wing on it. Only way I recognized it on the forums was that calculus sticcer. Lol

Jus dont know if it'll go with the color scheme of the car and Id hate to paint such a rare piece. Guess we'll see when I acquire it...whenever that may be. Haha

Installed and wired up my "for shits & giggles" mod today.

2 12" 12 purple LED strips mounted on the inside of my grill shining right onto my siccspeed horns and the rest of the grill area.

Mainly will be used for parking lot meets or when Im jus posted in a parking lot at night. Still working on my purple "devil eyes" mod as well as getting the fog housings bacclit with purple.
