That looks great...20 isn't bad for the highway mileage, better than my 6 cyl Jeep.

But that it is a Jeep. Still if it was low 20's like 22 or so I would be more impressed.

Yeah, but I don't have 400 hp. 20mpg with 400+ hp in a 4,000+ lb car is impressive.

In contrast, the Charger SRT8 is rated for 12/18.

I really am loving the GXP verison except the fuel economy... So who wants one? Come on Camino I know you still do...

You'd have to renounce trickle down theory for me to even consider the idea of buying it for you. After all, if we all joined in and bought it for you, that'd be socialism. :AH-HA_wink: *

*anyone who gets his panties in a twist over this joke, see me personally.

the painted chrome wheels could point to a defecit in understanding the client that goes after these things. pontiac dealers traditionally associate pontiac buyers with flash, thus let's bling up this expensive G8. but this is going after a sophisticated buyer familiar with performance and luxury cars, looking for a great performance ride that doesn't sacrifice sophisticated looks. i don't like the painted chrome wheels here and i suspect many others also prefer the standard style. GM dealer otoh can't think of a better way to please traditional pontiac folks, flashy wheels!

it isn't that i don't sometimes go for the painted chrome look, but the whole inside of the wheel gets lost in the sea of shine.

I like the style of the wheel, but would prefer them in a dark titanium rather than chrome.

I think they are polished (like the CTS-V?), not chromed.

Ahhh that is okay the election is over we have one president at a time. I understand this. I hope he has a good term. But uhh I do like this car. The buy it now is to high tho. The wheels are polished I belief could be wrong. The SRT-8 Charger is only rated at 18, I thought it was higher than that, then this isn't so bad. Still I want one. It could get 10 and I would still lust for one trust me.

If I were buying a GXP, I think I'd wait about 6-8 months and find a used one for $28k instead of $45k.

Well I would never pay that, because after rebates they would be closer to 35ish. Not 4X,XXX anything.

See, that's why GM can't sell cars and make money doing so now... everyone waits for rebates, no matter how awesome the car is...

*observation*

However, I would wait out the dealer markup.

Let's see:

Gm loses eleventy billion dollars

Self proclaimed GM fan says he wont pay sticker and will wait for GM to throw cash on the hood

I think there might be a connection.

Except that this dealer is trying for a premium over sticker.

And, paying sticker price, even when there is no cash on the hood is just stupid.

That goes for any car (Saturn excepted)

I could have sworn he said he would buy the car used not wait for rebates....maybe I just read it wrong.
