Re: Doug14's 2006 Vibe Base

Hey,I used Gunsmoke. It was a little tricky with the parts that stick out, I ended up using 3 separate pieces for each light, one on each section and liberal use of a heat gun/hair dryer. I had done the lights with the medium tint at first to see how it worked then a year later removed it and put on...

Re: Aftermarket tail lights?

I would suggest to go to a scrapyard and pull some tail lights off that year Matrix to see if the 3 bolts are in the same position. Another issue is that the matrix has its reverse lights in the tail light housing so if you want those to work you'd have to change the wiring from the bumper mounted V...

Re: Pontiac vibe intake system

just make sure to get right diameter MAF mount and make a spot for the breather hose. Comparing aftermarket intakes, Cosmo really is best bang for buck. Injen, K&N, AEM are more money. I am also a bit biased because Cosmo is from Montreal and has cheap shipping, for Canada at least.

Re: Pontiac vibe intake system

Yes, but make sure you match up model years. For example 03-05 vs 06-08 will have a slightly different intake, the latter using a breather hose that may not be present on earlier year intakes. They can be made to work, like anything.

If you ran it low enough on oil for the light to come on then your engine is likely dead. Sorry to say but you got what you deserved.
