Default GXP

I saw an GXP today, no wait, I was behind a GXP for 2 miles. It was all dressed in black and the exaust note is awsome. I was riding in the company vehicle, a HD GMC with the 6000 series V8 and it sounded like a 4 banger in comparison to this GXP. At the same time we came up to an intersection witth a new Comp G, no GTO today though.

i saw one when I was leaving a track meet. I just stopped the car and studied it a bit. This one was black too. They look just as good in person as the professional GM pictures.

I saw one at a restaurant about 2 months ago I WAS IN AWE. It was that awesome cream pearl color (about the same shade as a pearl Escalade) I had to take a picture on the rim too I LOVE THEM 235/50/18 Eagle RS-A very nice look on that generation Bonne.

You know, I would have thought that was too big of a rim / too thin of tire (yes, there is such a thing, contrary to what 'Pimp My Ride' would have you believe )... but somehow the GXP makes it look absolutely STUNNING!


Sweeeet....

I saw an all-black GXP at the golf course the other day. It was simply beautiful, except for the outside fog lamps -- I really do like them in the middle. Otherwise, great looking car -- I want those taillights for my SSEi.

I prefer the sleeker no body panels look of the GXP, its conservative body kit, integrated fog lamps balance the fascia nicely. Saw one in Syracuse on Peters street....one of the dealer salesmen gets to drive it for the same lease rate as his old 2002 granite grey SSEi, now for sale.
