I really like the back end, to many badges and even a GXP badge for the V6 engine under the hood. Where do you see they sold it?

Re: Sad G8 :(

I was like " not a terrible looking g" ......until I saw the gxp badges on a 6 cyl. Lol
someone can peel those off and have a nice base g8. Hopefully they find there way here, so they learn what's up.

i don't think its that bad visually, but putting gxp badges on a base model is just wrong. at least the ad description is accurate.

not my cup of tea at all. I'm not a fan of any sort of raised wing and its just embarrassing to drive around a GXP badged 6 cyl. Same thing as the guys running around town in a v6 mustang looking like a 4x4, with cobra emblems and magnaflow mufflers that doesn't give it away at all...

There's a guy in my town with big chrome wheels, along with the stick on vents and a "turbo" badge on his base G8.

As long as the 'mods' are reversible, it's not that big a deal.

On the plus side, I do see slotted rotors.

I doubt the wing is authentic. You can get reps online. I just wonder if the old holes were filled or plugged.

Just seeing this. OMG! I know everyone has already said it, but who really puts GXP badges on a 3.6L?? If I had a GXP I'd probably take them off so no one knew how fast the car was. That car just looks tacky. The chrome grill just doesnt look right for some reason. The back end doesnt look half bad though. I just like the low factory spoiler. It looks much more clean.

LOL!!! The more stickers, the more HP! What a great way to save some money and buy the 3.6L! Throw a ton of stickers on it! :-)
