Default Test drove a GXP

All I can say is WOW!!! So much more power, and so much for fun to drive. Quite interior that was actually very comfy. It was black with the two tone interior.

The thing I didn't like about the car is that it has some NASTY torque steer. Which with the right modifications could be corrected but still. IT was BAD.

The sales man also started up the '05 GTO that they just got in. (LS2) Oh baby does that sound nice.

THis sales guy was pretty cool. He probably could have lost his job too. He drove it off the lot like normal, THen I drove it (I'm 18 so from what I have heard its legal) then my best friend drove (he'* 17 but he has a liscense). THe wierd thing was, that for 2 teens walking into a dealer looking to test drive one of the fastest Pontiacs out there. He NEVER checked to see if we had liscenses.

All in all...good visit to the dealership.

My car is essentially a GXP, with stock 250BHP and 260 tq its about the same, plus the interior is slightly nicer IMO.

And its much cheaper option then a new GXP

That being said, I love the toned down styling of the GXP and the overal presence the car has, I saw one today in midnight blue...looked right proper beside my Big White

GXP = slow
Olds = R.I.P.
