Glad you decided to post finally! Nice looking Vibe! I may be a tad biased though since it is the best color :cool:! Do you have anything else planned for it?

I've got drop springs for it. Bit jave been dragging my feet putting them on. After that. Nothing planned yet. Wife hates the car and won't drive it. She can't handle the 5 speed.

Looking good! How does it sound with the exhaust? Any noticeable gains in power or mpg? Glad to have another 09 base!

NO noticeable gains from the exhaust. Has a deep sound at idle. Not too loud. Sounds real nice with the intake when you really get on it.

It's a spectre. I have a k&n filter on it now. It's listed for the Toyota Corolla. But is a direct fit for the vibe

Thanks! Do you feel like the K&N is giving you better performance?

Honestly probably not. But sounds nice when you get on it.
