2006 envious emerald green solstice

Picked up a 2006 pontiac solstice with just under 18,000 miles for $13,800 this past weekend. I'm looking forward to the modding process.

Looks nice! Used to see one that color with a tan top. If you're thinking of mods, does that inclued a paesley print vert top ( its OK if you're too young to get it )

haha a little too young i guess. I'm going to start with removing the solstice decal and painting the front grill black. I think any major performance mods and major body work will have to wait till winter is over.

Welcome ! Green is the best color. Lotsa pics of mine on here and elsewhere. Check out Western Canada Kappa Club on Facebook and you'll see it. Would give you some idea what mods look like on green.

Congratulations on the FINE choice in colors! And, is that a color trim line running along the top of the fenders, accenting the body line? Never seen one on a Sol before.

eBay but be careful. I believe that the 2006 had the eyelet to anchor the mats in a different spot than later years. Just be aware that there may be a difference.

grabbed some new mats for $25 off of eBay. They said they fit the 2006 so I can always claim wrongful listing if they do not have the proper eyelet.

Very nice! I've been debating doing that to mine, I think you just sold me! Off with the letters! Your car looks great!

Debadging is good. Well some of us think so. :-)

This is very similar to the Sky color.
