Also... before you dump your car can I swing by and try fitting my GT 19's on it? I just want to see where the calipers would rub if I went this way as a brake upgrade, if a little work with a grinding wheel would do the trick to get them behind the stock wheel or if there's just no way to get it done...
A good friend of mine just went about 2 or 3 weeks ago to a place in DFW area test drove a NEW White 6 speed GXP-
He has connection for the employee discount on top of all other discounts that apply. (no GM cash/points)
He was rolling in 2K in negative-- And he was financing 39.5K. (he changed his mine, but was approved.
39.5K - 2K negative that was added on is 37.5K (AFTER TTL)
so it was easily 36.5K in the month of Jul.
But you are right they are drying up fast. So maybe they will jack prices up I don't know.
Good luck with your sell.
I would buy a GXP used for 32K tops. But that is me.
The incentives have been good, but now that they are running out of cars they are irrelevant.
GT's have started to creep up at the auction and 3 GXP's have run thru manheim as far as I can tell nationwide and all 3 fetched 35k plus...That would mean they will easily retail over 37k.
With dealers like me and the few others that were discounting them running out, expect to see alot more MSRP and over now...
86 Grand National one of the all time sleepers, Turbo Charged 3.8 what a motor
87 was last (and best) year IMO. I've had two turbo Buicks, the last of which was an 87 GN. They actually did two production runs on that car as the orders outpaced supply so they cranked up the production line one last time in late 87 (for what would have typically been 88 model year cars). Mine was one of the last 100 produced. Wish I still had that car, wicked fun with only minimal modding effort.
Like someone else said, I'd love to have a GXP, but I'll see what things look like for a well cared for 1-2 year old one down the road in terms of price and maybe I can pick one of those up. Would also love to have another GN or GNX one day (GN quite possible...GNX not so much)
