Hi guys, the time has come to see about parting with the G8. It's been a great car but I'm looking at diverging my fast/practical car needs into two separate cars.
If you're looking here then you probably know all about GXPs, but the specs specific to my car:
- 45,xxx miles - going up slowly as it's my DD (but I don't commute)
- Solo Mach Shorty Balanced catback exhaust (J-pipes)
- Solo Hi-flow Cats installed (also have original cats)
- Rotofab intake (also have original airbox)
- Dyno Tuned by MAC Autosport in Parker, CO
- Camaro 20" Wheels with General G-Max rubber (245/35/20 in front, 275/30/20 in the rear)
- DBA 4000 series slotted/drilled rotors front & rear
- Hawk HPS pads on all 4 corners
I also have the original 19" GXP wheels with snow tires, as well as a set of 17" GTO wheels + bias ply drag tires I have used on the car at the drag strip.
I'm the original owner, bought it new from Mike Shaw Pontiac/Buick/GMC in Colorado Springs, CO at the end of September 2009. It was the last manual GXP left in the state. Never in an accident, should be a clean Carfax.
It's been a great car and needs nothing mechanically except a new set of rear tires sometime this year. There's a few minor cosmetic blemishes, including a couple parking lot door dings on the right rear passenger door, as well as a minor scuff on the rear bumper from someone rolling into me at some point. Neither are very noticeable and I'm happy to take pics. As it's a CO car there are also a few minor paint chips missing on the front fascia, but that's to be expected. It does have a clear bra on the leading edge of the hood.
Performance: It's great. On the dyno, it proved to be just below 400whp - see dyno chart below:
Never had GM say a word about any of the mods, drivetrain warranty should extend until 100k or September of 2014.
Car has also been a blast at Bandimere over the years. Have done Club Clash for 2 of the 3 seasons I have owned it but have never abused it - no forced induction, no NOS, etc.
Below are a few videos I suspect you will enjoy:
PM me with any questions, more than happy to show the car. I haven't had it detailed yet but intend to soon.
The price is firm at $30,000
for the car and all extras, or $29,000
for the car with one set of wheels on it. Many agree this is a smoking deal for a GXP.
Thanks for looking!
