Did I get a good deal???

I had my 2009 G8 GT totaled out on 1/19/11 and I'm getting some good cash from the insurance company. So I have decided to upgraded to the amazing GXP model. I just came to an agreement with a dealership in PA for a 2009 G8 GXP. I just put a deposit on it to hold it until I get the insurance check. I'm buying it for $32,600 out the door with everything included. It is white and it has 33,000 mils on it. What do you guys think? Did I do good?

you posted that question to the wrong place. I dont care if you traded a pack of bubble gum for the car someone on here will say you got ripped off.

Point being, if you think it was a good deal its a good deal.

Btw, I think it was a fair price. I'm looking to do the same thing you did minus the accident. I just need to pay on my GT some more so I can do it. A little over the top now.

2008 G8 GT GMG (2 tone Red/Black interior) 50,XXX miles
Stock: 13.75 @ 102 mph
Cortex 93: 13.36 @ 106 mph
DMH E Cutouts: 13.24 @ 107 mph
Pacesetter LT, SLP UDP, Vara Int: 12.87 @111 (Need a tune, cortex doesn't cut it anymore)
Dyno Tune (TBD): ??.?? @???

Sounds like a fair deal to me! Not a steal or anything but fair! On the other hand I don't think you got ripped off! Hmmm now how do I get my car totaled without me driving it so I can upgrade like you did? Lol Just kidding!

Yeah I could have picked a better place to put this in. You got a great deal I roufly paid $29,000 plus taxes and tags. The suggested retail value is$ 36,000. 8 think 8 got a good deal with this one but with my brand new 2009 G8 GT I got it ffor$26,000 plus taxes and tags which I though was an amazing deal.

I know huh. I lucked out kind of. I live in connecticut and we got record snow this year and with that we had monstrous snow banks so this broad in a 330 BMW pulled way to far out into the intersection and I clipped her really bad and then went on to smash up a guard rail really bad too. So it wasn't my fault. This broad with a 2008 330 BMW had the state minimum for auto insurance coverage. Wtf!!!! so I ended up going to my insurance because of the limits issue. She's not very smart having a a $40,000 car with only $20,000 in coverage per car per accident. People these days just aren't smart so she's going to pay out of her pocket.

Sorry, didn't mean to scare you that there is anything serious. I didn't drive it or even open the doors, just looked over the outside real good. A salesman was on the phone looking at me out the window, but never came out. Maybe he was on the phone with you?

Windows are tinted, kind of dark for PA. Some here have problems that dark so it may be from out of state.

It is totally de-badged. There are GXP badges in the cup holder, but I couldn't see any others.

Marker lights and signals are tinted, clear lenses.

There is one really bad ding in a wheel. Not curbed, just one small spot but pretty deep.

I think they are original Potenza tires. Maybe 1/4 life left on them.

The outside was dirty with salt from sitting close to the road. I would get them to wash it good and look again. Underside was very clean.

I am only a couple of miles from the lot if you would like me to look at anything closer for you.

smtty .. didn't realize this happened to you. That sucks good thing you were alright.
IMO you didn't do too bad on the GXP.

Have jd take a look at it for you one more time before you sign the final papers IMO.

The accident was a 1000 ft from my suburban home, on a not so busy street. Some girl just pulled way to far out of a side street and I nailed her with my passenger side and then went on to hit a guard rail on the drivers side. The killer was that I have camaro brembos just powder coated and ready be be put on. Also I have a set of 20" camaro wheels that I never got install and the real kicker was that I had kooks 1 7/8" LT headers and kooks 3" catted x-pipe delivered that day of the accident. All this I'm saving to put on my GXP. Not sure if I'm going to keep the GXP stock wheels or go with the camaro wheels. I know I can get real good money for the set of stock GXP wheels. Does anyone know what I can get for them if there in mint condition?

They are not quite in mint condition, but i may be interested. When are you buying it?

Sorry, I am not trying to put down the car you bought. It is really a great looking car and I agree with others that you got a good deal. I only have a few thousand miles on tires with sport wheels. Maybe we can work something out to swap when you pick up the car.

Would it be crossing the line to put GXP wheels on my GT? I already have the GXP front bumper.

This is a awesome deal. I don't really like the red and black interior. But for that price and mileage I still this I would have bought that car.

That is the primary reason why I chose the one I bought. Didnt really like the white exterior, but the price and red/black interior did it for me. the all black seems to wash out to me.
