Re: 5speed to 6 speed?

I've swapped out my 5 speed for the GT 6 speed! My 5 speed spun the bearing, so I found a 6 speed from an XRS through Keystone Auto Parts for about $900. It's a direct swap, all I would suggest is a new slave cylinder and new throw out bearing while you're in there. Take your time, and trust me it t...

Re: Hood/Grill Paint Job!

The short answer... no lol If I had used higher quality clearcoat it would have, but I used Rust-o-Leum gloss clear and it gave it a different sheen close up. From about 5-10 feet out, and onward, both sides of the hood look identical. However, up close, you can see the texture difference, as well a...

Some things I learned!

My girlfriends mom works at the local Chevy/Buick dealer where I purchased my Vibe, and had suggested I check out their stock when I was searching for a car this time last year. I perused a few local dealers, but none had a stick for me to purchase. The only thing I had been offered was a 2012 GTI w...

For the past 3 or more months, the Vibe has been needing the assistance of my glove box hammer to start :shock: We believed it was always the starter, and as time progressed it became apparent it was the solenoid sticking.
