I like the sounds of this car. It'* going to be badass. I'm curious how many they're going to build, whether it be limited production, or not. The GXP series of cars sort of reminds me of what Buick did in the 80'* with the T-Type packages. The buick T-Types are probably more rare than the GXP'* are going to be.. I have a feeling they will sell pretty good seems how new car rates are so low right now.

Is that how much they are going for...US?? that'* a lot more here...but no matter...I'd still take it over an MB...if you can afford a MB now, why are you driving a bonneville...MB'* are a lot more money then just buying them...insurance and REPAIRS are astronomical.

And even if they weren't, I'd still pick my new 2000 over one

Boo and I will have a Gxp when they come out....well, maybe a year or two after

Complintor, i knew that pic looked familar when i was looking at it yesterday, but for the life of me couldnt place it! thanks for the sanity check!
I wish i could get one next year but im sinking way too much money in mine now to give it up next year.

Just think of all the fun we can have modding this. a v8 that everyone will carry performance parts for! 285 hp bone stock, should be able to get 350 hp with small stuff.

IF we're real lucky maybe the year after they'll throw a blower on it!

I've had a pic of the GXP on my desktop for weeks. I can't wait to get one. Maybe I'll get lucky and find one in a couple years that someone trades in after a year or so, so it won't be too expensive. I'd rather have it brand new though. The *** on that is sweet, especially with those tips.

I can't get enough of that GXP.... nearly 300hp.... sweeettt!!!

The styling is awesome... so sleek... and sexy.... mmmmm....

I don't think I'll be able to afford one the first year the come out, but maybe in the 2nd or 3rd year with the GXP.

BTW.... for us future GXP owners, we may want a BC sticky with something other then "3800 Powered". Don't get me wrong, I love the 3800, but a V8 with nearly 300hp...

I know the price tag is high, and true for the price you might be able to get a GTO, but you don't get the luxury or cool gadgets you get with a Bonnie.

Im gonna do it the same way i got my current bonnie. Get it 2 years old. Look for a special one that was owned or leased by a blue hair. i got mine in 97 with 29,000 miles on it. They got rid of it right before their warranty expired. some old couple that is. It listed for 20, i got it for 18 in PERFECT condition, actually 19 with an extended warranty. 2 years before it sold for 36,000!! that would be 18,000 depreciation in 2 years. thats why i'll never buy a new car. (unless of course i hit the lottery )
Oh yeah, it still had that new car smell and did for a couple years after. not any more tho, it smells like vanilla.
