Default grand prix gxp

wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i just got done driving one. V8 power and torque rule.


my friend is buying a 2006 and he wanted me to drive it and see what i think of it.
it has all the options. ive never driven a car with hud and i want hud. tapshift kicks *** u can shift down to 1st and punch it and throws u in your seat. exhaust for being stock sounded very very good. u cant hear or tell when the displacement on demand kicks in and out.

all i got to say i want one BAD.
