Who traded this in???

Highly modified MGM 2008 in Addison, TX

I know someone has to recognize this beast. I'm considering going look at it this weekend just because I'm really curious. If I wasn't needing a daily drive, I'd probably snatch this thing up quick

Haha thanks...yeah it really looks like it is. Unless of course there's some serious problems hiding under everything... Tempting. Very tempting.

Doesn't get much better than that. I wish this one was available before I bought mine. I'd be on a plane tomorrow.

They have a cool sales setup there, specializing online, pricing competetively(a lil high on some but in line with dealer pricings).

Niche marketing at its finest. I dig.

Yeah, I've never seen a setup quite like that for a dealer. Really cool.

How much do y'all think that cam kills the mpg?

Tuned right shouldn't negatively effect you too bad, long as you keep your foot out of it. 17-18mpg combined driving I'd guess. (Someone with a cam can tell you better)

I get 15-17mpg on e85 afm/dod deactivated factory cam on mine. When I'm outta boost.

The ONLY thing that troubles me is this combination of statements: "6.0L with AFM" and those cam specs...are they trying to say that DOD is still active? That's a big cam for DOD.

You can choose to be anything you want on the internet...why choose to be so stupid!

They are just spitting out the factory specs when they say it has AFM; after all, they say it has LS7 lifters, so I'm sure it doesn't have AFM anymore.

I don't know how they can say that this car has "factory exhaust" when it has high-flow cats and headers... factory mufflers, maybe? Even then, the axle-back mufflers don't look stock to me, from what you can see in the rear end shots.

Also, I don't think MGM is a "rare colour" for G8s, not compared to others.

This is a lovely and very interesting car, and a heck of a deal in the eyes of a Canadian .

2009 G8 GT in MSM: no sunroof, no sport package, no leather... just the standard-equipment "yee haw"!

Mods: K&N air filter, AEM Brute Force short-ram, Solo Mach Balanced + HFCs + resonators, Livernois ECM/TCM tune(s), gorgeous wife mod
