Figured I would start a thread here in the members area to give all of you an idea of what I have done with my grand prix throughout the years I have owned it.
A little background. I purchased this car brand new in 99 from the Pontiac dealer. It is a silvermist GT. It had 12 miles on it when I took it for a test drive. It is currently sitting at 97,XXX miles. This has been a good daily driver for me these past years. I doubt I will be selling it anytime soon. I think I'm going to keep this forever .
The only real issue with the car was the LIM gaskets. Other than that it's been routine maintenance.
Mods that I have done throughout the years:
-GMPP lowering springs
-GMPP front and rear sway bars
-GMPP trailing arms
-GMPP 12" brake upgrade
-Borla cat back
-HV throttle boddy
-18" Black Falken Koblenz
-Added digital DIC
-Full audio system
-Painted OEM black style headlights
-Optilux angel eye fog lights
-SLP Gen 2 spoiler
-MPD F1 hood
-SD Air Dam
-Red LED Tails
-Fill interior LED's
Here are some photos throughout the years:
This is the earliest photo I have. It had AE 077's for the longest time. It's too bad they started to pit on the inside. Also had an SLP gen 1.
I then went with black wheels as projectors. I got rid of the projectors after a couple years. They bounced even after using every fix for them. The beams crossed and they left weird gaps between the bumper. So I sold them and went with a set of OEM lights that I painted black like the ebay lights.
These are the wheels that are currently on it. I am looking for a new set since one of the wheels has some bubbling under the chrome lip.
Also have silver painted calipers with vinyl decals
The custom billet badge. I have since put the stock one back on.
The engine bay with the engine cover on. An older photo with the stock intake.

This is how it currently looks. The SLP gen 1 has been replaced with an SLP gen 2. Replaced the tails with red LED tails. Had my rear bumper letters painted to match the color of the car. Picked up the MPD F1 hood from a local guy a few years ago as he was hurting to make his mortgage. I picked it up for $500 and had it painted 2 years ago.
New 18's. Currently looking. Going silver this time.
Repaint sometime this year since the clear coat is starting to to on the front and rear bumper and the front fenders.
Double din head unit set up
Top swap. This is a big maybe. I have my 02 Camaro SS if I need to feel speed.
Retro projectors. Another maybe. I live in the city so lighting is not an issue.
Katzkin interior. The front driver seat has a real small hole on the bolster.
