Not really a Pontiac so he may be disappointed. M45 FTW
it says Pontiac on it, and had a interior redesign when it came over here... i'm sure that aspect of it is more Pontiac G8 then Holden VE Commodore or Vauxhall VXR8

P.*. Check this one out

Yeah they changed the back lighting to red and put a Pontiac emblem on the steering wheel so its not really a redesign. Did you see that saab 97 suv. Would you call that suv a true saab or a GMC envoy with Saab styling? G8 is a nice car but to me its not a true Pontiac.

Am I the only person that thinks the VXR8 and the VE commodore actually look better than the G8?

my only complaint about the G8 is that the hood scoops look . . . cheesy. other than that, looks good (even with its european stylization and i prefer the american stylization like the new camaro and challenger)

red again? Have they ever used any other color before? I thought they would switch up there back lighting. When I first saw the G8 I thought it was a 530 BMW which is the car they compare it to.

American car exteriors needs to be redesigned.....
Buick- makes old people cars now, no more Park Ave. (no offense)
Dodge- Avenger looks the same as the Charger, Charger looks like a lego.
Chrysler- 300 looks like a block, hate the roof
Saturn............
Pontiac- G6 needs to go, so does the G5
Chevy- Dam Malibu looks way better than the Impala.
Cadillac- Hate the from of all their cars
Ford- Taurus, 500, fusion, aren't those the same cars,


But anyway I didn't get to test drive today, maybe monday. I likes that holden concept, exhaust on the side and that frame is golden.

I'd love to get a G8 GT, and when I can afford to get one then I will.
