Yeah, I think it'* pretty much the same car as the G8 GXP. I was impressed that Jeremy Clarkson said he LOVED it! It'* rare to hear him say anything good about a Vauxhall, let alone saying he loves it!

That'* one thing I don't understand, people saying it'* not a real pontiac. Number 1, why not? And number 2, who freaking cares if it'* a "real" pontiac or not? It'* got the badge, and I can get one at the local dealer. How much more real do ya need to be?

Just "saw" one at the dealership (wouldn't let me drive it, barely even sit in it...)
It really is a step up from GM'* previous cars.. The materials they use rival that in BMWs and Mercs. Color me impressed...
