I still don't see why so many people are confused by this car, or don't like it and prefer the older GM models... It'* got a 256HP V6 that'll scoot nicely, and a V8 that'll go like hell. It'* handling is great thanks to a great chassis and rwd, and it'* nice inside.
When the 04 Comp Gs came out they marketed them as a BMW competitor, which was far from the truth, in reality it was a decent body refesh with the same trans with a few buttons to shift +/-, and a few engine tweaks for more HP. The G8 actually puts it into the sports sedan segment...
