G8 gxp

Went out on the weekend looking for a new car for my wife, and ended up trying out a used G8 GXP M6, I was quite impressed with the looks and performance.
Does anyone have experience with these cars?

Re: G8 gxp

All I can say is my aunt bought one and my uncle took me for a spin. Very nice!

I love the interior.

Just GXP's as an option, just like the GTO's

Re: G8 gxp

They were never sold up here (Canada) so they are all imported from the states..... that translates a high price tag of $47K used, or I could import one myself cheaper.
Our other choice is a new C300 Benz, nice but underpowered, I am leaning to the GXP and the wife the C300

Re: G8 gxp

IMHO reliability would stick to Benzo but GXP is one sweet loud machine

You guys can build a nice car, I have an Aussie GTO garage queen and really admire the build quality and especially the interior.
