Default Sold the G8

Well, It happened. The G8 is gone. Flame suit is on so fire away. For those interested I pressed hard for 20k and settled for 19.5k on a trade. For a car that cost 313xx getting 19.5 back after 49 months I thought was good. Putting that at the SHO and a bit more down, the monthly payment is easy. The SHO is pretty quick for a 3.5L turbo. My kids like the rear heated seats. The Bluetooth, park assist (don't really Need that), blind spot activation and torque vectoring all wheel drive are things I do like. If I really want to get out and drop the hammer I'll take the Marauder out with 412RWHP and 440RW Torque and spank a lot of cars including every non blown G8 :-)).

This car was a blast and you all here have helped in the enjoyment. Have a safe New Years everyone.
Bill

Congrats on the purchase. How is the interior space vs. the G8? Now go get a tune and downpipe for that SHO and wake it up!

I am also interested to know how many miles. My 09 has 50k mikes and the best trade I could find was 18k. Kbb showed 19, 500 trade in. I am also curious to know what kind of deal they gave you on the sho.

Congrats on the new car. Now all you need is a Livernois Tune and meth kit. If you haven't already, check out shoforum.com.

I saw a brand new 2012 SHO AWD on NY eve. It's sticker said 44595, but the dealership said 35,995. I thought that was a great price for how much car you get. It just seems like such a big car. For me, the G8 is the perfect size. That's why I can't wait for the Chevy SS. But price will probably keep me out of that.

The G8 is the bigger car.

It may look bigger from the outside, it definitely sits much higher, but I guess I was commenting more on the interior dimensions - and the G8 is noticeably roomier. I believe the SHO is an inch or so wider and a few inches longer and it also weighs about 400 lbs more too. BUT - interior-wise the G8 trumps it and it also rides on a longer wheelbase (which probably adds to the look that the SHO sits high)

Taurus is longer, taller, wider and heavier. Maybe you mean interior dimensions?
