Default GXP in Canada!!!

Yea baby....
I thought they weren't coming north... but when I walked into MacPhee the other day there she was.... 04 Bonneville GXP... black.... two tone interior leather/suede.... very very nice.

I got inside her... wow... I didn't want to leave.
I had my friend pop the engine... there'* not an inch of room to spare... nothing... she'* packed tighter then... (I'll stop there).

The engine cover looks awesome w/ the pontiac dart logo on her... very nice.
She'* clean too.... only a GXP on the side, and the rear has Bonneville and V8.

She was fully loaded... only thing she didn't have where chrome rims.... she only had 18" alums.

She'* going for $49,000 Cdn.... for any of you with some spare pocket change.

Yeah, I know when they had the first prototype in 2001 I think they came with the tinted windows and they even said it in the reviews. Just wondering if they followed through with it.

Nice. I had a feeling they were coming up north because of the fact that they were in the buyer'* guide in the big $5 program at the Toronto/Canadian Int'l Autoshow

I was talking to the dealership guys late last year and early this year... they weren't expecting them in Canada.. let alone in Nova Scotia.
They claimed they didn't sell well.

To tell you the truth it probably wont sell... The owner probably just wanted one of his own, and the show room is probably a nice place to keep it for now...

It'* rare that I see '00+ Bonnevilles anywhere in the greater Toronto area, so I wouldn't doubt that. Interestingly enough, I see more SLE/SSEi'* than I do SE'*
