New Member saying Hi to all
« on: May 05, 2009, 08:12:51 PM »
 :) Hi everyone. Just wanted to let you know that this is the best Soltice forum on the net and I'm glad I found it. :urock: My name is Dan and I got an '08 Brazen GXP for my wife back in Dec. I look forward to many happy years with my (my wife's) GXP Solstice - even if GM is going to pull the plug. I plan on doing some moderate mods to the car and this forum will be my guide. I've already done the GM CAI and I love it - The power comes on much quicker. I would like to do the Stage II mod next followed by a Cat-back exhaust system (as the pocketbook allows). Just did the first oil change at 6000 miles and this forum showed me how to do it. I wanted to add a pic of my car but haven't figured out how these Icons work. Will have to wait till my next post. Anyways, thanks for letting me have a voice in your wonderful forum.   Dan

'08 Brazen Gxp purchased new 12/08 with all options - even (sigh) AT. Have GM CAI. Waiting for GMPP and Solo Exhaust. Looking to get together with other local members - perhaps in Doral.

Welcome PH & wife's BRAZEN GXP to the forum.

Great color choice, if I must say, it may not be the FASTEST but it is the HOTTEST   :lol:

Or at least that's what all the dealers say and they wouldn't lie would they?   :huh:

Great to have you on board.

I think a very wise person said this or something very similar as this almost sounds familiar :idk:  However I think that we found out that dealers fabricate the truth as needed sometimes. ;)

Since this was an old topic, that was correct back then.  But August 2011 the forum was upgraded to SMF 2 the menus have changed.

Hover over Profile -> click Forum Profile.  From there you can specify a URL to an avatar of your choice or choose one from the server.  If you become a supporting member, you can then upload one to the server.
