No need to chop... Headlights like the Roush Concept would look good on even the cheapest looking G6s... Don't be crazy. Not even close to rice. You're insane, you know that? :P Rice smice... I can show you some freakin' rice. :lol::D

Maybe you could get somebody to chop the headlights from the Roush onto your car, and see how it would look first...

They're the same headlights, except that the outer chrome ring is painted black.

I'd also try painting the molding below the windows

No, I mean, make it black like on the Roush G6.

Do it. Yesterday.

Those awful chrome headlights are one of the G6's weakest styling points. Off you go! :thumbsup:

Not ricey at all. Color-keying them? That's ricey.

This makes it fall in line with other Pontiacs and, upon reviewing these pictures, I don't know why GM didn't do this in the first place, at least with the GT/GTP trims. A few bucks to really set it apart is worth it for you or the General...

If you think about it, it's actually cheaper for them to not use chrome. Just use a black plastic piece like in the others...

Seeing so many people are doing it on the G6 forums, I'm tempted to do that as well. Like the ones on the Roush concept.

But problem is... does that make me a rice-boy??

first- no it's not rice. rice means you're trying to make your car look fast.

second- no. it doesn't look great from your example below.

There are bunch of mods I can do to the sol's lights, but personally I think it looks kinda cheesy, esp when you just spray paint the plastic.

Angel eyes look cool though, changing the actual bulbs looks pretty good.

Angel eyes is not about the bulb. It's merely a plastic ring with LEDs at the ends, in some cases an EL tube.

angel eyes can look good on some cars and yes a lot of time theyre jerry rigged but they work

i like the painting it black but you also have a lot of chrome elsewhere so id make sure you dont make the headlights look like cheap plastic go with a glossy black or black chrome paint not a matte

I think the black housings would look hot... the next best thing you can do to the headlgihts, but then it wouldn't really be budget any more is a convert them to Projectors+HIDs. http://www.hidtech.com

I'm on the fence, it's not rice (your idea) but it's not that original either and all that work for just a touhc of individuality? Eh, depends if the stock setup is unapealing to you...
