Default 2004 gxp

i am going to test drive a 2004 bonnie gxp monday after work. 31,000 miles , black and pretty much spotless. just a few light scratches on the rear bumper cover. no moon roof though. it was listed at $21.995 but now its down to $17,995. i just might buy it if i can get the price down a little more. man does it look sweet !! a gxp would take the sting out of selling my ssei !

You might be disappointed. I know I was when I drove one. No negativity intended at all, but an SSEi is more durable, less troublesome, easier to mod, and will kill a GXP on the quarter.

I'll take the 4t-80 any day over a 4t-65 HD.

The handling improvements are nice. You'd have better brakes, little slower off the line, but quicker once you're going along. The Northstar should also be smoother.

well i have only looked at it so far. i drive an ssei everyday so i will be able to make a good comparison. gas milage would be one downside to the v-8.

Don't the GXP'* run identicle to the STS'*? If so then the GXP should be slightly faster than an SSEi stock-for-stock.

Default GXP

Visually the GXP is awesome, the wheels are sweet, the fascia improvements are very well done and the ride quality is definitely improved. However, I don't care for the white-face gauges and no sunroof adds to body stability but takes away from ascetic. Also, be fore warned that those Northstar Engines get very needy as they age. I would definitely look into extended powertrain coverage.

P.*.: Try to get them down to 15,500.00.

To all the doubters out there on 1/4 mile times comparing the GXP to the SSEi:

There is no argument. The track times we've seen from the GXP put it solidly BEHIND a BONE-STOCK SSEi. Dyno numbers from INTENSE were also disappointing. A stock GXP is NOT quicker than a stock SSEi in the quarter mile. V8 does not automatically mean quicker.
