    Does anyone on here have a g8 gxp? I know a few members have GT's....

    Anyway, if so, can you comment on your experiences so far? Any major mechanical problems? Interior grievances?

    Thanks bros

    i have a GT..it's the same thing except with an LS3 and some ironed on patches on the seats that say "GXP"

    interior is very solid...no noise at all, just a little wind noise
    no mechanical problems otehr than the recall for the front ball joints...and the CEL that always pops on when the stupid gas station attendant doesnt tighten the cap enough
    really great car...i still think about the 370z which was my other choice but i always think about my future and possibly needing a trunk or an extra 3 seats..plenty of room, plenty of power, good MPG, very unique look

    and the only problem I have had thus far is when I first got the car, the stability control was off, so it would engage over minor turns. This was quickly fixed at the dealer and no other problems. Such an awesome car.

    The suspension is pretty much the same I believe...the power is from the different engine (LS3) which is the biggest difference between the GT and GXP

    Suspension is the same I think, but don't quote me.

    And another 50 HP. 365 vs. 415

    I had a G8 GT, then traded it for a GXP which I like much better.

    No issues or grievances of any kind, it is a spectacular car inside and out. Good luck finding any unsold new ones leftover though. Unless you already have...

    There's a thread on g8board about GXP manuals having clutch issues too. The automatic is an excellent transmission.

    My next manual car will be and LS1 WS6 or another LS2 GTO. :o

    Yeah, I've seen it and, to be honest, expected it.

    My next car will be a fucking civic, because I need a daily.

    Just out of curiousity I checked the inventory of a local dealership and they have a new G8 GT for sale.

    Is there a pass through from the trunk to the cabin in these cars?

    I was dealing on a 2002, t-top, six-speed, black, 986 original miles, all documentation and plastic wrap from the factory but the guy sold it to someone else.

    I all fine and dandy with this thread until someone had to go and mention they wanted a Trans Am.
    Now I'm in the corner crying.



    Thanks asshole.
