I've driven GXP'* three times now. One of them twice, and another once. I too was disappointed in the power. Very restricted to say the least.

The above statement is not meant as an insult to any GXP owner here. It'* simply a comparison with all the Bonnevilles I've driven.

I would think fuel consumption would be bad on any car if you get into it a lot. IMO the engine is quite evenly matched to the car.

I wasn't insulted either. I quite agree with the comment that the car is lacking in power.

If you want another 150 horsepower Venom may have some suggestions!

I'd get a GXP just for the improved, cleaner look, and that BEAUTIFUL V8 sound!

I'd have to have an SSEi on the side though.
