Your guy's thoughts?

I found this G8 listed on eBay. At least from the listing, it seems to be in good condition.

I emailed the seller asking some questions and am waiting on their response. But, I figured I'd like to get your guys $0.02 on it, since you all know a lot more about these cars than I do right now. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Seems clean and in good condition. It has a GXP rear diffuser which did not come standard on the GT model and the "Atari" center gauges are either an add on or this is a 2008 being advertised as a 2009. I am personally not a fan of the rims at all, the color is ok I guess.

has some conflicting things going on. The "Atari" gauges (above stereo) were only on the 2008s; but the color (Sport Red Metallic) was only available in 2009.

K. I'll have to ask him about that. No Mods were mentioned, but I will make sure to mention the gauges and ask if anything else has been done.

The Atari gauges are aftermarket. They show 3 different readings. Stock ones only show 2.
The gauges are a $350 add on.
So it is an 09. Not a real common color, so that is cool.
Personally i kinda like the wheels! Over all it seems like a really clean car.
FYI it does have the sport and premium packages.

The price on there website is a little high, bring them down a couple grand and you have a great deal!!

09.1 White Hot, Sport/Premium

Sport was the 19inch rims and I think a sportier steering wheel. Premium package was heated leather seats. Also yes that's sport red metallic an 09 color and those gauges are aftermarket as well as a gxp diffuser.
