Not too bad for a first build your own website.

My observations:
Not a huge choice of colors.
Does not appear to have an integrated XM receiver.
Not enough detail on what is included with the different trim levels.
The site is easier to use than the last time I built a Pontiac using their website.
I like the visual and sound presentation.

Hopefully as 2008 gets closer the packages and options will be more defined.

I really like the G8, but I honestly gotta tell ya. It aint no Bonneville


I was in love with the car the first time I seen a pic of it, and tracked its development for a long time reading many many articles in several different mags.

Then the local auto show comes around last weekend...


I seen it in person. it just looked funny granted, I didn't get to spend a whole lot of time around it, but it just looked to tall, and to skinny. I am a fan of "Wider is Better", and this is not it by any means.

I still LOVE the overall look and appeal of the car, but the car just looks to skinny.

Looks like my final opinion will have to wait untill they start showing up at dealerships and I can test drive one.

HOW CAN YOU COMPARE A SEDAN TO TWO COUPES!!!!!!!!!!!????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!??????!!! !

they are not in the same class, and not comparable. All you are basing your comparison is HP and Price... not exactly a parallel

and even still, the closest comaprable caar would be the charger, and starts at $2,000 more and is short by roughly 20HP

Anyone that buys a Camaro or Challanger, weren't really gonna be happy with a 4 door to begin with. I wouldn't consider that a loss in sales. Someone that buys a Charger, 300, 3-series maybe, G35 sedan... those are a loss in sales.

even still, a G35/G37 are not exactly comparable cars... G37 is a 330 HP V6 Luxury, and Pontiac is not what people think of when it comes to luxury. i dont feel many people will be comparison shopping G37s and G8s
