I like my SSEi, but I think when I get a new one, I would get a GXP. I just like the overall styling. Sure, it might not be as fast and not as mod-able (if thats a new word, I claim patent), but I am not all about that.

Anyone wanna trade straight up?

I think I saw somewhere else that the new Pontiac G8 is the new Bonne? True?

Cause the GXPs (IMO) Conformed with the rest of the Pontiacs design wise, on the front anyway... And I love the SSEi Styling. but GXP Rims and Tails FTW!

I can't vote because I haven't had a chance to drive a GXP yet. But with the issues I've had on my 02 I am leaning toward the GXP. As far as the looks, They both are OK and I wouldn't have a problem looking good in either Also, if what you guys say about the suspension on the GXP is true then I probably would pick the GXP. You can feel the road more than my liking my 02, my 95 has a better ride.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Although, I don't mind the top end power of a northstar.

I'd vote GXP. Absolutely DROOL styling and some nice power.

*wipes drool*

Can't I just keep my 96 and do a L67 swap? I am not a big fan of water in my trunk and doors or a battery under my back seat.
