Hi there, I've acquired a new (to me) automatic 06 just a few weeks ago and have spent just about all my free time researching things to do to it. I figured it's about time I register and say hello!

This is my daily driver so I'm wondering about a few modifications to make the interior a little more useful. (sorry if any of this is easily found, I have spent a while looking)

Make better use of all the space around the lock/unlock button and window switches? This seems like a perfect place for my phone if it were shaped/arranged differently.

Use the existing 'dead' button next to lock/unlock as a button? My garage door opener would be perfect here. I did see this on/off switch but it seems a bit pricy: JHP on/off switch
Does anyone know of pictures of this switch installed? I'm having a hard time imagining it from the image.

Replace ashtray with the original cubby? My GTO apparently came with the 'smokers package' and as I don't smoke, I'm thinking that I might find the original cubby more useful but haven't been able to find any information on this part.

— Steering wheel extension? edit: I didn't realize the steering wheel telescoped.

And I'm interested in any other suggestions that I may have missed. I've already installed the almost free aux-in, turned up the gain on the stock subs, and replaced the blown rear side speakers. Currently I'm looking into replacing the stock subs with some inexpensive eights.

make sure you check that wheel...it may feel tight but it moves in and out as well as up and down (tilt AND telescoping)...as a tall guy myself, I agree that the wheel won't get perfect for us but it isn't too bad...

Wow, thanks. I knew the original owner of this car and have spent a fair amount of time driving it, I can't believe we never found that it telescoped!

glad it helped...I thought the same thing when I first bought mine and then one day while tilting the wheel, I pulled and it moved...very tight but it moved...enjoy!

I've never needed to telescope mine but I recall reading in the manual that it works that way.

Get rid of the smokers package and the cubby that will be there is a great spot for your phone and wallet.

As far as the switch price, it is WAY overpriced. Get used to grabbing you ankles though... GTO tax sucks.

If you look in the back part of the center console there is a rectangle rubber piece that comes out and fits over the cup holders.I like it because its not permanent and can be used when you want.
