Just snagged my first GXP
Ok, I'm new to the group, but I have been thinking about getting a GXP for about a year. I have always driven Pontiacs, back to my high school days in a 63 LeMans and my college days in a 65 GTO. My '02 Boneville SSEi has 191K on the clock is getting tired and needs enough work on it to the point where fixing it up exceeds the value of the car.
Three weeks ago I saw an ad on Cars.com for an '09 GXP SBM 6 speed manual with moonroof, with under 7400 miles at a Chevy, Buick, Caddy dealer, located where I grew up in Nanuet, NY. (about 190 miles away from me). That finally pushed me over the edge. One call later I was disappointed because some dude from california had put down a deposit, but wait.... he needed his mom to sign the loan for financing. The salesman told me to call beck the next day. I called three times the next day and he was still waiting to get the financing. But finally on the third call, he spoke to the GM and the GM said sell the car to me. So one credit card deposit later, the car was mine. I was not able to pick it up until yesterday. When I got there and looked over the car, he popped open the trunk, and sitting there were two 12" subs with a 1000 watt amplifier, a little bonus that he never told me about.
The drive back home down 95 was great. Tight handling, and all the power I needed to pass the slowpokes in the left lane.
Future plans are to add the analog gauges and car PC with touch screen, NAV, and a back-up camera. The forum has a lot of great information on it.
