spotted in central Austin area

Spotted a MGM GXP yesterday at Slaughter and Manchaca, It was rather dirty though. So that makes a total of about 5 GXP's in this area that I have seen. I will say Austin seems to be a popular place for G8's.

Mine is SRM as well and I've seen one around the Howard/35 area a couple of times and I'm sure I've seen it in the Sears Grand parking lot too.

Hmmm, haven't seen an SRM GXP around since I test drove one at Covert before I bought my silver one.

What part of RR? I'm in the SE corner of town. I see a LR GT all the time, and there are at least 3 MGM GTs within a mile or two of my house, but no SRM G8s of any type that I've seen for a long time.
