Bought my first 2008 MGM GT in May 2008 off the lot at 21 years old. First brand new car I ever purchased. After a year hiatus from the car and 5 years later, I have my second 2009 PBM GT with a few more goodies.

Do I ever step on it? Oh yes! Who can resist the exhilarating acceleration (from time to time) - and in sport mode - wow
Makes me feel good to read a post like this. My dad is 82 and drives a Lincoln MKZ. He really likes my car. The first time he saw those quad pipes sticking out the back, he was smitten. Then I took him for a ride. He said he didn't know if he should cr**p or c**m... Cracked me up. Man, I hope I'm still having as much fun as you guys when I reach the golden years. Keep it up, guys like you and my Dad are an inspiration.

You folks under 20 with a G8 are VERY fortunate and blessed to own such a nice car at a young age. Wow.

I'm really surprised too. bought mine in april, considering selling now... cost me 10k per year to own + gas= bad investment. i don't get any help from my fiance, nor parents. its all on me, not to mention cost of living in the california bay area.

I really love this car. i hate thinking of giving her up but its so expensive and i have a really bad driving record for my age. 5 speeding tickets, cell ticket, no ins ticket, 2 totals, driving on suspended... no reg... i could probably name more. only one in this car is a speeding ticket, 60 in a 45... at 22 this really destroys your insurance rate.... i was looking 800 a month at progressive, got the cheapest possible through cost u less and still 475 a month... so i think i'll keep her til this may, if i get a big raise i'll keep her. if not i'll post up here first...

Bought my g8 in sept. of 08. I was 31 then and I just turned 36. The g8 is the first car that I plan to keep. I usually sell or trade the car by now and after almost 5 years of ownership I still get compliments on the car, so g8 not going anywhere. 2014 I plan to either purchase a newer c63 amg used or check out the new chevy ss once its out.

Man, talk about either unfortunate luck or you pissed off the wrong person. I have been lucky enough to be ticket free since my driving days began. **Knock on wood.

I was surprised on the insurance cost with my GT. The 4 door part is the thing that helps. I pay less than a friend with a older coupe that is worth way less. Funny part is its with the same insurance company and we both have spotless records.

I'm 28 and I can't remember what state farm quoted me, but it was ridiculously high. I insured under my father's name (who's 57) and I pay $87 for full coverage monthly.
