Default Moving on....thanks

Just traded in the G8 on a 2012 CTS-V. Loved this car...will miss it for sure. This forum has been a great resource, I haven't posted much but visited often and learned a lot - some passionate folks on here. Thanks for all of the wisdom.

Wish I could have afforded to keep the car for a little longer, my little bro is begging me to hold off an sell to him (he currently has an 06 GTO, an 04 C5 Z06, and a 96 Impala SS. The last thing he needs is another car, but he loves the G8.

Pics or it didn't happen. Also no reason you still can't be a part of the forums. There are many of us that no longer own our G8's.

Seems like many move to the CTS-V after the G8. I know that's my next move, but much farther down the road when I can keep the G8 and daily the CTS-V.

Enjoy the new ride.

Wait, you couldn't afford to keep the G8 but you bought a $65k+ car instead? I don't get it....
I don't think muscle gets much more affordable than our G8's.
that being said, I'm sure you will enjoy that new car. Those are insanely fast and capable cars.... Pictures or it didn't happen ;-)

Yes, pics would be appreciated and I'd be willing to bet you got a pretty nice deal on leftover 2012 model. Most I looked at were between $68K-$72K MSRP, but I got a few truecar quotes just playing around between $62K-$64K and that was before they were as old as they are now. Guessing most who go for 2012's or in some cases 2011's still on the lot great deals can be had. I need to stop thinking about this now...really dangerous for me.

He probably can't keep both cars, the G8 and the CTS-V.

He has been posting a lot in the past few days though.

Correct...I traded in the G8, couldn't afford to keep both that and the new CTS-V. Also I only have a 2 car garage. It's a 2012, black raven with black rims, yellow brembos, Recaro seats, A6, suede shifter/wheel, sunroof. Picking up tomorrow, will post pics then.

I'm trying to sell my G8 rims mounted with winter tires, the mods said I had to get to 40 posts before I could post for sale...so I've been burning up the forum over the past 24 hours.

Wicked good deal! That thing probably looks sweeeet! I wish I could swing one if those. Can't wait for pics. Good luck with the caddy.

Haha, the almost 600whp daily driver is too much fun! The local G8 guys tease me that I only bought another G8 so I could hang out with them

Both are awesome cars, the two best sedans that GM ever made.

I love the Evolution Green...very unique/rare color.

I'm one of the rare.
I'd rather option out the G8.
It's just a better looking car.
