Personally I like the hood scoops, I love the chrome accents on the fenders, and they have an AWD model in Australia where they were released first.

It won't be long before they release it in the U.*.

It was no mistake, GM is reinventing itself, it has to if it wants to survive. As far as the new Malibu is from the previous one, the G8 is even further from where the old Bonneville was in damn near every area.

Pontiac is the "excitement" division of GM, and it certainly looks like they are making some exciting cars.

I am considering trading my beloved BMW 745i in for a fully loaded G8 when the become availible. I am not looking for power only but refinment.
....And critics say GM is crazy for comparing the G8 to the 5 series and said I quote, "BMW owners will not be crossing over to a Pontiac".

I just like the added bells and whistles. And I know one of the LS engines is getting the supercharged treatment for the Corvette this year.
