My new 08 Grand Prix

15 posts in this topic

Well, I got this back in February (February 2nd, to be exact), I posted this on other sites I visit including my sites, but since I wasn't around here, I didn't post here. So here are some photos along with a video clip I have taken the next day I brought my baby home.

The sun's glare made it a bit of a challenge to take a good photo, but at least my Samsung camera did a decent job on them, though not perfect.

Yep, that's me right there, I am a fat little Asian dude as you can see in the clip.

The features it has are: Sunroof, 6CD Changer with Monsoon 9 Speaker audio, Leather, Heated Seats, Sport Package(Fog lights, Dual Exhaust Pipes), Fold Flat Passenger Seat, and ABS. Pretty much loaded without the side curtain airbags. It costed me around $24,700 before taxes. Not a cheap car but.....

Good for you. Congratulations. My preferences aside, the GPs have pretty decent handling, steering, and acceleration even in base trim. Let me know how the leather seats are. The base car I rented last year had the cloth seats, which were just shy of horrible for long trips.

The leather is great. I love every inch of my new car. I tried the seats of the G8s on the show, and I absolutely hated it. It's too soft, and it feels cheap to me. Well, to me at least. Also, I hated the dashboard design which to me, is too plain, and boring. Also, I don't like the fact that it isn't really a North American made. I absolutely hate imports. Part of the reason I got the Grand Prix all due to the foolishness of GM by killing it in place for this trashy import. I don't care about the drivetrain nor power so..... All that matters to me in a car is the American design, and American(Canada included) made, the size, and the styling. I don't like the G8's styling to begin with so..... Since it is nothing more than a re-badged Holden import. I have nothing against Holden nor any Australian make, I just don't want them to do business under Pontiac name. That's all.

Awww, I saw '08 GP and was expecting pics of a G8 :(

Congrats on the new purchase nevertheless. We're turning in my dad's '05 GP lease pretty soon...

RE: the vid- is that a GM commonality now; the speedo briefly pegged to 140 when it was started up.

Congrats on your new ride!

Not what I would have spent my twenty-five thousand in change for, but I digress. Congratulations on the new car. Best of luck with it. :)

I think the Börger will be wanting to give you a kiss for saving one from Hertz!

Still, it's always nice to get a new car, especially if it's the one you love. That 3800 is going to give you years of great service.

Happy motoring. :)

Be careful when you speak der Bö®gÉr's name, I arise like the Angel of Zeta death, that I am. :smilewide:

Der Bö®gÉr wishes you many happy years with your new Pontiac Grand Prix, I know from personal experience that you will enjoy it very much.

It looks sharp, but for that price you could have gotten an off lease GXP with not many miles :smilewide:

Hey, congrats! Funny how we all mention "baby's" birthday. The GP was a serious contender for me and about 3 weeks ago, I put slightly over 2,000 miles on a rented one. (They hate me, I know). I picked out the photos I like best. LOVE that dash - the shape, the in-dash ignition, the round vents....just the way it involves the driver. Also, kudos for getting the base 3800 V6 which will serve you forever, it seems. In the end, we all end up buying what fits us best...in my case I went LaCrosse. But the two cars are joined at the hip!

Enjoy and may you get many years/miles of safe and dependable motoring!
