Default Bringing home the new GXP!

My new Bonne GXP is in and I'm bringing it home this weekend! Oh my. I saw it the other day and boy is it one sexy beast! Crimson Tintcoat, sunroof, and those silver painted wheels, although not chrome, are very attractive as well. From the side it looks kinda like a mustang for some reason. It has almost corvette features how it builds and tapers up at the rear from it'* low front. It is one handsome car and I can't wait to hear the exhaust note through those quad tip exhausts! Excuse me, I'm salivating all over the keyboard.

Congratz, I'd say lets run for slips, but im sure the bank still owns yours

Be sure to indulge us with pictures. Have you driven other Bonnies or is this your first?

Went in to the dealer today and started her up. OH MY!! The exhaust note is perfect. It'* luxurious but still has that muscular V8 flair and burble to it. The sound system is very nice as well. The HUD is clear and precise; I'm very impressed. Can't wait to go for a drive. Oh, I did test drive an SLE last year before I bought the GXP. The SLE was nice, but no enough. Crimson Tintcoat is so hot when it sparkles in the sun!

Hi all!

This is my 1st post. I just brought home my new GXP today and was looking for a place to chat...and this looks like a good place to start!

I went to work this morning with no idea I would be driving home a new car today. But strange things happen. I saw the $5000 rebate on the windshield and added that to my GMS discount and I had $10000 off! So who could say no!

I promise to post pics tomorrow after I prep it!

By the way...I'm a Pontiac dealer service advisor/warranty adminstrator if anyone has any questions.
