And yet another find.

09.5 Stryker Blue GT. 28,100 miles. Slight curb rash on bottom front bumper. Non-smoker. Serviced regularly and uses premium gas only. No mods. Has sport and premium package i believe. It has leather and sunroof along with 19" wheels. Asking $ 26,800. Is this a good price or should it be slightly less?

Should be less, but in that color might be worth it if you cant find it anywhere else.

09.1 White Hot, Sport/Premium

Not too bad, the SBM cars usually are a few grand more than the other colors....

In your case its loaded (like mine!) and its a great color.

I would try to get them down a bit, but it might be tough given the rarity of the color..

Is it a dealer of a private party? If it's a GM dealer is it "certified used"? As this gets you another 1 year 12k miles on the warranty. If it's private party I'd say 26,800 is way high, should be closer to 22k range. If it's a dealer you're likely going to have to pay more than private party but hopefully you could still get them close to the 24k range. Like some of the other posters said a SBM car had lower production numbers so while some people could care less, others will pay a little more for that color if they really want it... that's what I had to do.

Its a privat seller. He says he wants to pay the loan off on his car and upgrade to a GXP. I told him 24,500. He still wants it in the low 26s.

Jedi,

I too think the price is a little high, but you are gonna have to pay if you want a blue one. There was only 1,100 blue GT's made, so don't let the price discourage you that much if you are set on blue. And let me tell you that when you see the color up close, ITS F-IN AWESOME. I bought mine new 2 years ago and drove almost 2 hours out of my way to get it, it was the only blue one within 500 miles of where I live. Hopefully you guys can meet somewhere in the middle on the price?

Good luck

I too think its a little bit high. Id offer $24.5K. I paid less than that for mine with 11k. I know of a dealership that's selling an SBM w/ 70k for $21k. You could probably get it alot cheaper though.

2009 SBM W/ PREMIUM, LUXURY, AUTO-DIM MIRROR, BLUETOOTH VCIM, ROTO-FAB CAI, GXP MUFFLERS, CORTEX.....A FEW MORE TO COME.

That is a decent price for 70k but I'm trying to keep it kinda low in miles due to powertrain warranty. I told the guy, i'd still have to pay for TT&L, shipping it back to Houston, and have to pay to book a roundtrip to NC to go see the car before buying. And not to mention, my damn credit union wants 10% down on my loan!

If you are asking about my deal then it was private party. I bought mine off of this board and had to drive it back from Colorado. Well worth it for my SBM dream car. Me personally didn't want a sunroof because my head hit the headliner with the roof cars now my head cl
ears by half an inch. BTW I had a brain fart I paid 21k flat.

I love the sunroof, its great to open it and get the open air feeling. Its not the quietest sunroof but I like it. Its really up to you, but the G8 doesn't give a closed in feeling without it.

i wanted a sunroof but when i sat in a G8 that had one my head was hitting the headliner. when i sat in one without one my head didn't hit by about an inch. i am 6'3" and my brother is 6'5" and we both don't hit. i must sit weird.... for people that aren't as tall then i guess it would just be personal preference from personal experience my last car had a roof and now my g8 doesn't i don't even think about it. however my left arm is more tan than my right now. lol

I bought my SBM for $19500 in Feb of this year with 60k miles on it. Has everything but sport package, also has a sunroof. I know I got it for really cheap, but I think 26k is too high. I agree with the other guys here that 24 is a bit closer to reality. I honestly didn't know my color was this rare until I read this thread! Lol
