Default BadGXP

Ok, I was over at INTENSE this morning and got to see the beauty. It is much better in person however i'm still not fond of the front. I would have gotten pictures but its pretty much rained all week and it looked in need of a wash. Didn't want its first pictures being all ugly and stuff

Once the weather clears ill snap some pics of it. One if his gauging employees bought one as well so now there are 2

I'm not sure of the exact color, but it is silverish.

Can't wait to see some of the stuff they come up with for that. Cam shafts would be a must.

FWI definitly, and a good total exhaustport/polish first. Remember there is barely any market for this car because its so new. Its DOHC, os its totally different than our bonnie engines. Much more complicated.

I LOVE the front end! The new smaller grille'* make its apperance closer to the new gp'* and GTO'* ..which IMO will make it sell more. I could maybe wish they still had the same fog placement.. but no biggy. I'd say it'* a big step foward.

And for those that dont like it, the SLE can come with a V8 too! You can have the best of both worlds!

Considering this N* has been around for a few years in the STS and Deville, there may be something going for the GXP.

That'* cool, I just saw one at the dealership yesterday. Thinking about getting the crome shifter and maybe all the carbon dash inserts along with the chrome door handles. Need to price that stuff out.

Todd, they plan on modifing it? Give them this link, http://www.chrfab.com
