i saw one at the autoshow, couldn't go up to it though.

one thing pontiac really messed up on it, but its a easy fix hopefully, it needs to sit lower. i thought it was lowered 1/2" over the ssei?? it looked like it was sitting higher. drop that thing a 1" and it'll be [email protected]$$.

make it sit like this

I like the badging they have in the back.

aurora'* were in the mid to high 30'*. for the 2k1 style, they started at 29,995 i thought (even a base model is pretty loaded) topped out at like 35k. i had a magazine add/poster that said in 95 loaded with all optiions it cam to like 37k, and remember, where talking about a 1995, cost of technology, stuff gets cheaper and better. which is why the 2k1+'* got cheaper

they actually sold pretty well, but what my gripe is, is someone said somewhere there'* a 3k dealer MARKUP, charging more than what gm thinks they should? thats not cool. but then again, according to ponitacs site there'* a 3k rebate, 3k off msrp of like 38k is cool, making it 35k. but 3k+ on a 38k car, making it 41k is not cool.

don't get me wrong, i want a gxp, its the best car gm is putting out right now (except the xlr/cts-v). it blows the new gtp comp g away like nothing, as it should, it costs more.

Must be it was the Eldorados then, I remember the STS'* were 48 to 52,000. I have way too many #'* in my head. Thanks for refreshing me.

With any real cadillac, or highend olds/pontiac theres going to be few options. The standerd transmission is an automatic... freaky huh? same as leather seating its not even an option.
