Welcome! Your Vibe looks really good, especially the wheels. I'm not much into aftermarket wheels, but yours look good.

Love the Vibe! I highly recommend the K&N Typhoon. I just got my hooked up last Monday and it changes the whole feel of the car. (In a good way) It gives a throaty sound, almost like you would when you get a muffler tip. And it gives you roughly a 10-11 HP with more responsiveness. Best of luck to the new mods to come!

Over the past few weeks I've put on overlays from Grafxwerks.com, all "vibe" and arrowheads, including steering wheel, changed "PONTIAC" inlay to reflective black. Painted lower grills to have a polished metal look to them, installed new headlight and foglight bulbs, and got my windshield replaced!

K&N Typhoon SRI.
Adding to your wishlist for you for some inexpensive mods to compliment the K&N SRI (I have 1 of these also) making it much more fun to drive (when you want to find the floor with your right foot ;) ) and increase your mpg's (if you don't drive it like you stole it):
Helix throttle body spacer (you will need to cut down the TB side of the SRI to allow for the 1" spacer):
http://www.taylorvertex.com/Products/in ... PowerTower
Bore out your throttle body by maxbore.com:

Might want to research replacing your intake manifold gasket while you have everything torn apart (not sure if the '06 has the upgraded IM gasket or not).

Big ticket item = more fun to drive: replace your 5 speed with a 6 speed (it's only a matter of time before your carrier bearing goes bad - known issue) and put an aftermarket clutch in it while you are at it. The gears are closer together which will make it feel like the car is faster as well.

Nice looking Viberator! I have a '03 Base like the one in my avatar. Wish I had more of a solid color (love the Salsa color) and the painted plastics like yours.

Well the K&N wont fit my vibe without some modification since its an 06 so i will probably go a different route on that one, probably won't do throttle body spacer, I'm skeptical about those, I would love to bore out my throttle body but as my car is a daily driver I would have to get my hands on a second one. Clutch is in good shape still, but when it goes I do plan to get a nice aftermarket setup. Transmission I'll keep till it gives me problems but have looked into the 6 speed swap. I basically just want a 2zz instead lol. As for the colour, I am more of a fan of the mono-tone than two-tone paint schemes. I do, however, prefer the front bumper and grill of the 03-05 vibes.

They appear much brighter, especially during the day, but they don't put out much usable light at night but, I like the look of them. I found the stock bulbs not all that bright in this housing anyways.

Bought a Cosmo intake, but it only came in blue so i painted it black. Also painted oil dipstick black and STARTED to insulate my A/C line. You may notice I have the snorkel part of the old airbox still in place, I have it routed to beside the foglight to get some cold air. I plan to make a small enclosure for the filter element to block some engine heat.

I also used my touch up paint to paint in the numbers on my shifter lol

Like the blacked out badges, tinted tail light housings, and trim changes on your Salsa Vibe. Blends well, each change fit with the next. Image

The painted accessories look good; that's exactly the type of thing I've done with the vibe.

I'm also considering buying the Cosmo intake. Did you notice any difference after you installed it? I assume there is a minute change, but the engine can definitely breath easier.

I've noticed a loss of low end torque but a nice little pickup in the higher rpm range. The sound is great!

Changed my gear oil and greased all shift linkages. Shifts so much smoother now, and it was easy. I plasti-dipped my rear bumper valence and love how it looks:

Image

I also bought some more Grafxwerks stuff. Door lock overlays (I bought black ones before, that was pointless haha) these ones match the colour of my car:
Image

Bought a vibe badge overlay and stuck it on the dash in front of the passenger seat:

I also have 2 black Genvibe.com decals, locations to be determined.

love how the valance came out the black really stands out on the dark red color, was thinking about getting the overlays for the door locks mine have faded out to a nice yellow.... nice to see what you do to your car since we both have identical cars....it is like a test for me if i were to do some of them to mine, you know what they say copy is the greatest form of flattery there is......

Stopped at a couple campsites last week with my girlfriend, her mom, her sister and her sister's husband. Not wilderness camping, but it was still fun. We went to Sauble Falls, Ontario, and Point Farms Provincal Park, Ontario. I took lots of pictures but here are just a few!

I am not the first to do that, looks great tho so I recommend it! I don't remember which paint I used for the rails exactly but I think it was just a gloss black rustoleum or tremclad metal paint.

So i was working on getting switchback leds for my turn signals, had to switch pins to get the white to be the parking lights and the amber to be the turn signals. but I now realize that i would prefer the type 2 switchbacks(amber/off/amber/off) type one is (amber/white/amber/white) but overall a good learning experience for cheap $13 pair haha.

Installed Progress rear sway bar and gave the vibe a nice clean and hit some light scratches with a clear-coat polish. Love the way the car feels with the beefier sway bar, I still need to have a front wheel bearing replaced and need new front struts, then I have a set of Tien H-techs I will put in!

Looking great! I'm excited about you getting lowered.

Also, love your kitty. I have one just like her:
