Tell me about it. The good part though is...after removing the SSEi that had just liability, and adding this thing w/500 deductables...it only cost 100 bucks more per 6 months.

Highway feel is incredible...much more stable than the Malibu, and way more comfortable. I was surprised to see how big the GPs have grown...both inside and out.

And...it'* still a 3800

Is that the only contribution you have to this post? Mybe it'* just me, but I find it rude to ask someone about selling something off a car they bought yesterday...

Very nice GP, Brad. One of my favorite colors on the GP. Any plans for modding? (of course!)

No modding...it'* perfect the way it is. Well, *maybe* some discreet modding Too bad HP Tuners doesn't support it. I'd pay for a few more credits to firm up the shiftpoints.

The color is nice...the detailing sucked. Next week it'* gonna get clayed and glassed.

Pat...those tips...won't be coming off anytime soon, except for maybe some cleanup.

Very nice GP!

Chrome rings around the HVAC vents, electronic climate control, 5 button DIC, special edition exhaust tips. Brilliant!

Congrats on the new purchase.

The sales woman we dealt with (this is one of the times that we actually felt good about the dealership and their sales reps) said she took this one on trade from an old man that wanted a truck. Car was sold new in Orlando, and serviced at that dealer. She said he custom ordered it...and it shows. It'* very unique from my limited research...loaded to the gills SE. Even has FE2 ( I dunno if this is the base suspension for the GP or not).

I'll say this much...even for a base motor, the L26 has plenty of scoot to it.
