I had been driving a 2004 Dodge SRT-4 for the last couple of years and I decided to get something a little more comfortable. My new ride is a 2006 Malibu Maxx SS. I've added a few new goodies and I have more planned for the car.http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa245/dlancer407/bu154.jpg

Those SRT-4s are hella fun! One of my good friends had one. It was incredibly unrefined but just a blast to drive as fast as possible. Unfortunately it met its untimely death when he drove it through a deep puddle of water and the CAI sucked water through the turbo. Now he's driving a 2006 VW GTI. I'm curious as to what let you to the Maxx SS? Thats quite a change from a SRT-4.

I really loved the SRT! Mine was lightly modded and lowered. The car was pretty quick. The only thing I did not like was the ride especially with it lowered. I'm 54 almost 55 y/o and I wanted something a bit more refined, with less noise and a better ride. I still wanted something with some power and I have always liked cars that were a bit different. My first new car was a 74 AMC Gremlin X. I was looking on line one day and I saw the Maxx at a local dealer. I test drove the car and loved it. Good power, lots of torque and it handled pretty good too. Add that with all the options on the car and I was sold. I got a hell of deal on the car so bought it.

Thanks. I do plan on tinting the windows. I'm not to sure about the headlights and tails. I have ordered black housing headlights. The very first thing I did was paint the big gold bowtie in the grill black. The bowtie is molded into the grill. I was hopeing it was removeable but it's not. I would like to see if I can replace the center grill with plain mesh and put a SS emblem in the center. If I do more I will post some pics.

I got my black headlights last week and I removed the SS and Malibu Maxx emblems off the back. I relocated the SS to the bottom grill on the front. Here are a few pics. On to the tint!

Let me know how that goes. I was thinking of doing the same.

Nice buy! What does the engine bay look like? Does the SS have forced induction? And finally, did you swap the wheels from your SRT-4 onto this? I assume the bolt pattern is 114.3 for the Dodge and 115 for the Chevy, so it would work.

I tried to look for an engine bay on Google, and two of your pictures come up first in Google's image search.:)
