If you are going to do the trans and engine then this is the best choice!!!! never too many miles especially if your looking at refreshing/building up the powertrain!!!!

Price was good. I have 130k miles on my G8 and I wouldn't let it go for less than $12-13k. I have been offered $10-11k on trade in so you know it would go on the lot for $13-14k.

these cars are built like I-beams. Solid. 100K is not that much mileage, especially if you are going to work on the engine a lot anyway

Agree - as long as its not trashed. Even at 12k you could build a brand new motor and come in under what most low milage ones are going for.
