I am on my second Solstice.  First was an 07 NA and really enjoyed it. Now have an 09 GXP Wicked and this car is really like a completely different car then the NA. Can't believe the difference. Have been working on minor mods. Currently debadged, Red calipers with GXP emblems, short antenna, painted sunvisors and added Kappasphere passenger mirror, Kappasphere Rebar, Carolina leather arm rests and center rest, Vansdesigns side scoop vent cover and backup lights cover,side marker directional mod, added extra high note horn, currently working on making tunnel brace.  Just waiting for MI. weather to get nice enought for some top down cruising.

Don't temp me, could be your project for next winter, we would have to push Joey out of the garage, strip the car down, and a full repaint :)

Welcome to the forum Mike. Glad you found us. This is a great site with a lot of Kappa smart folks. You can learn alot here.

This is my second Solstice also. My first one was an NA. We loved the car. Trading up was hard, but this GXP is awesome. The wife picked the color and I got the turbo. That seems fair to me !

See ya in Denver......
