  • dude, if i was you ide just go get a set of rims and tires as a package to take the hassel out of it, thats what the guy did that had the car before me, he went to rentnroll.com and bought the 19 inch motegi 5 spoke rims as a wheel and tire package
  • I just bought a 2007 Aveo, I cant find anything for it as far as to modify it. Probably because its too new. Im looking for a body kit and some engine upgrades. If anyone knows about any or if anyone has done upgrades to there Aveo, let me know how it turned out. Thanks

    Did you get the hatchback or the sedan. There are body kits for the hatcback on EBay and someone on here has bought it and I think is putting it on his Aveo now. If it is the sedan,it is a brand new body. You probably won't find any body kits. But there is a wing for the trunk on EBay for it. For the engine,some people on here SAY they have found some turbo or supercharger available for it. I so far have only managed to put in Bosch Plus 4 Sparkplugs for a bit more power and better mileage,and using Synthetic oil helps to. The engine is still the same no matter what you bought. So you can do those upgrades, and also replacing the lightbulbs in the headlights with Sylvania Silverstars will give you a lot more light and is super easy to replace, I have done that to,the other things depend on if you got a new sedan or the hatchback.
  • Yeah I bought the sedan, i figured there werent many things out for it, yet, hopefully soon. Yeah ive been reading this forum and thats what ive been hearing about the spark plugs and the oil. When i buy them, does Aveo take a certain Bosch, or is it just a 1.6 liter, platinum spark plug? Thanks for the help, do you have a sedan?
  • I took the Aveo LS letters of the back and the two GM emblems on the side off as well. All there was, were adhesive residue, after about 15 minutes of scrubbing with decal remover it came off. Although I didn't take the bow tie off yet because I dont know if the rear bow tie is screwed in or just has adhesive I'm going to do it tonite and I will let you know
  • It takes a Bosch +4 P/N 4419

    I have the 2006 hatchback automatic LS. I have added many stock parts,but bought them on EBay,like Body side molding,Ventvisors for the windows,but I finally got the HARD hood deflector that has been in the sales brochures since the car was first sold...but no dealer had them for sale! I finally got one....after a soft hood bra ruined the paint on the front of my hood . But now this hard hood protector looks great,and makes the front end look wider...so it doesn't look so 'pinched' in the front. I think it looked a little to small. Now it looks a bit wider. But it is a genuine GM part,that you can get from any GM dealer. I dont know if they make one for your sedan yet. But I thought it was so stupid that they show it for sale as an accessory in the sales brochures for over 4 years...yet you couldnt buy it! Well they finally emailed me directly to let me know that GM finally had it for sale. Kind of stupid to show it for sale...then not be able t obuy it for over 4 years. I got the side molding for like 1/2 the price of the dealers price. I dont see any other Aveos in Ft.Lauderdale with side molding on them...they are covered in door dings! I guess they never thought of even cheap aftermarket side molding. I see you got the Bosch plug number already, the only other thing I can think of is in your next oil change,go for synthetic. With your highway driving, it will last a lot longer and you will get very slightly higher mileage. I see you have discoverd you dont get the great high mpg this tiny car should get. We all have found that. But a few on here seem to get over 40mpg somehow. I think they dont know how to fill the tank and calculate by filling it again the entire way. and they are over estimating wehat they are getting. No offense meant to them.but how a few get 40+ mileage and the rest of us get crappy mileage, is very odd. It is the same engine,and some of them drive mixed city and highway and claim high 30's and 40's mpg. I only pray for over 20! Enjoy your car. It sure is different from the 2006. Our hatchback is slighty improved,they only put in a few new standard things,but they would be great on my car. Like an arm rest and a different automatic shifter. It feels stronger and more sturdy. but hey...we can all lie and still say we have a 2007 at least! hehehehe!

    GEE!! The main thing I wanted to tell you. There is at least 1 pin holding that BowTie emblem on. So if you want to have an open hole on your car...take it off. I think it is just asking for rust...so I wont remove mine. People here have told me to remove it, it is only 'a hole'. Well I don't want a hole in my NEW paint on my new car. So..unless they changed it on the new sedan...there is at least 1 pin holding that emblem on. The one on the grille comes out fairly easy,but to me it leaves an empty depression that looks like it needs to be filled. But many on here have removed the grille chrome and BowTie. The big one on the back is the one I have been told has at least 1 pin holding in on. On yours,it could be more, or they could have gone to adhesive. You could ask your Chevy. dealer service dept. BUT chances are they will have no idea. If they are as 'knowledgeable' as my dealers!
  • Ive been looking through my magazines and there is nothing for my car obviously. But do you think that i can make stuff fit on it as far as it not being made for my car. Another thing, is there a way to put custom molding on my car, maybe made for another car and i can do it myself? Thanks
  • Ok, so im extremely frustrated right now, because there is nothing out for my car. Does anyone know anything about when something might come out, and not from the dealership. Im this close to trading my car in, for something else. I want an EVO, but if there is something coming out for it, then ill wait.(That last statement was out of frustration, i cant afford it, or i would have already had an EVO) For instance, last night I went to AutoZone and they didnt even have any freakin spark plugs yet. Im going crazy, i cant afford new wheels right now, and i have to wait until spring. It looks like im riding on spare tires. Someone help me,please...haha.thanks
  • I actually started taking the grill off, but then i stopped myself to ask someone about it. Did u say that some people take the whole thing off. I wonder what it looks like. Prolly like a big black hole. IDK, im going insane because there isnt anything out for my car. Do you know of any stuff yet. Any good websites or anything...thanks
  • I found a good site...well its ok. www.andysautosport.com...i found some stuff on here. Like a new universal grill. Check it out

    Wait til you need to replace struts and shocks -- still no replacements except the expensive, wimpy OEM GM parts from the dealer. More than $260 just for the parts -- before the $90/hr labor!

    I wouldn't hold my breath for parts for an '07 since there are virtually none for the 04-06 models except for oil filters. Can't even find a lousy air filter at any local auto stores!
  • I have a chevy aveo sedan, i bought the K&N original filter and iridium spark plugs, i drove it around 120mph and he goes very well, like a mercedes, soft like a silk, but im looking how i reflash the aveo ecu whit a laptop???? Please help me!!!, Thanks... www.clubaveo.com.ve
  • I dont drive like a granny and yes on long trips I have gotten over 40...mpg...and around town I get 29-31.....and I do now after doing this for 30 years...how to figure my mileage..........lol. The only time I get bad mileage is when I get gas intown ..and it is the E-10 blend of gas and my town mileage goes down to about 27-29 and my highway is down to 35-37...on the mixed I get about 34.
  • Today I went to a custom car place and asked about some stuff for my Aveo LS...he said everyone he talks to predicts tons more stuff to come out for the 2007 in the end of Feb. Hopefully this is true. I will let everyone know when I find out more...

    I was wondering how the Ebay Dash kit (the aluminum accents) worked out?
  • Hi.
    I keep getting Errors messages when I put in a CD with MP3s on it. I've followed their directions to a T. I get Error 4 and Error 5 and Error 6. I can't find a definition of these errors ANYWHERE.... :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Add to that this: My local Chevy dealer says they don't work with the sound system.... :mad: :mad:

    Any help anyone can give is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.
  • Hello, I have a 2004 Aveo LS hatchback with the tiny 14" wheels and want to upgrade to something bigger. Not suer if I'm ready to spend the dough for mags but want to put a set of 16" or 17" steely's on. I like the look and simplicity of them. Is this possible to find something with the same bolt pattern or would I have to go to mags? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    just about any tire and wheel dealer can get you a set of rims and tires......I got mine at discount tires....
  • Just picked up a slightly used 2006 5 door. I'm looking at putting in remote locks with keyless entry as my model didn't have them. I've done the door job myself on a different car before so I know what's involved regarding wiring and actuator mounting, but am unsure how the hatch lock itself is to be done as it seems different than a door. I don't want a popup action, just want to be able to lock/unlock the hatch at the same time of the doors with the remote. Any suggestions?

    Have you gotten it fixed yet? IF it is under warranty, and is a FACTORY system,not one you put in,...they HAVE to fix it. Period! It is part of the car..it is covered for 3 years/36,000 miles, period! Tell them that and dont back down. THEY might not do the radio work,they might out source it. BUT any problem is covered. They cant pick and choose what is covered and what they will and won't fix,as long as you have a warranty. IF you still dont get help. Call GM..and complain about this issue and you will get help. The number is in your owners manual. Remember,'The squeaky wheel gets the grease!' I complained about the problems had,and I got them all fixed, and got free oil change coupons for my troubles! They won't fix my tires wearing out so fast. BUT everything else..once I contacted GM and they contacted my dealer,my dealer kissed my butt everytime I came in!! Their attitude changed very fast once GM called them!

    what is d K&N air filter and iridium spark plugs parts number? i want to try .......
  • flaaveoflaaveo Posts: 161
    Any parts store that sells them has the numbers to order them. OR has them in stock. OR you can buy the K&N on EBay now. I have seen these Iridium plugs for sale...but I went with Bosch Plus 4 plugs and think they are very good and my mileage went up by 1mpg after installing and it runs a bit smoother. But to each their own. I'm sure someone has the numbers if you must have them. BUT the parts store would have them to get them for you.

    I HAVE AN 2006 HATCHBACK LT. I HAVE ALREADY PUT A RAM AIR INTAKE FROM SCERET WEAPON R OFF OF RACINGLAB.COM AND IT MADE THE CAR HAVE MORE POWER FROM THE GET GO. IT ALSO MAKES THE ENGINE SOUND GREAT. NEXT I PUT A CARBON FIBER MUFFLER WITH A 4.5 INCH TIP. THE AMOUNT OF TOURQE WAS GREAT AND NOW THE CAR SOUND WONDERFUL. IM WORKING ON GETTING A BOTTLE OF NITOUS FROM NITROUS EXPRESS. ITS ONLY A 35HP SHOT BUT IM SURE IT WILL THROW YOU IN THE SEAT. I HAVE ALSO PUT H&R LOWERING SPRINGS AND 16INCH 6 SPOKE WHEELS AND BFGOODWRENCH G-FORCE Z RATED TIRES ON IT. THE CAR IS FUN. NEXT IS THE CARBON FIBER HOOD, BODY KIT, TINT, AND MOLDED VENT GUARDS. OH AND I PUT A 2000WATT 15 INCH SUBWOOFER IN IT AND IT POUNDS. I HAVE HEARD THAT THERE IS A SUPER CHARGER FOR IT AND THAT WOULD BE MY FINISHING TOUCH BESIDES A BIG BRAKE KITS FOR THE FRONT AND REAR. IF ANY ONE HAS INFORMATION PLESAE SHARE. THANKS A LOT AND ENJOY. YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY "ITS MORE FUN TO DRIVE A SLOW CAR FAST, THEN DRIVING A FAST CAR SLOW."

    Where did you get it off of RacingLabs.com...I sure cant find this intake listed anywhere in their intake section. Got a part number?
  • arjamesarjames Posts: 6
    http://store.racinglab.com/wr-secret-307-163.html Copy and paste this web address into address bar. It should take you straight to it. I just went to the search and typed in 2006 aveo weapon r intake. The top link should take you straight to it, covering 2004 and up Aveos.

    I have a new spicy orange Aveo Hatchback. absolute love the car. I have a set of fog lights and horns for the car. I want to mount the lights in the lower bumper of the car. Since it's a base model, the two holes in the bumper are covered up with black plastic plugs. How the heck do you remove the plastic plugs??!! I found the screws that hold them in place, but just can't get to them, and I have small hands. Do I have to remove the whole bumper assembly???
    Now to the horns. How do I know which is the horn wire from the horn button?
    Any responses from anyone with experience is greatly appreciated. Thanx ---- Paco

    Does anyone have Wheels spacers on their Aveo? I see them advertised and was wondering if they affeft the handling of the car or if there are any safety issues when you install wheel spacers on the car. Thank you.

    About a yr ago, i almost rolled my Aveo (it went on one side,then dropped back down) I think it must have loosend the connections to my speakers. A few months later i went to turn up the stereo and it crackled, then nothing. My question is: How to get to the back of it, do i need to take the dashboard off?
