Default GXP Grandprix

Has anyone driven the GrandPrix GXP yet? How does the exhaust sound compared to our cars?

We just got one for my wife to drive. Definately 2 different cars. The Bonne is smooth and controlled where the Grand Prix is much sportier and gruff. As far as the sound I have to pick the Bonne with a mellow, macho sound. The GP is a rougher, untuned noise. Not by any means a bad sound but not as pleasent. The GP is a fun car to drive, though.

I saw a GXP drive by me at my work in the parking lot. It sounded really nice. Now I just gotta find one to line up with to see what it can really do.

$35,800 before the employee discount. My wife got hers for $30,000 and the only thing missing is the DVD nav and XM.

Well, as this is a Bonneville forum it wouldn't be fair to post them here, but you can view our cars at: http://www.pbase.com/edonthenet/pontiacs
I have some nice photos of both our GXP'*. Enjoy!

*HINT* For the originals, hit the "original" link under the pictures. *56K death*
