Thanks, it certainly has taken a lot of time, money, and effort. I'm ready to move on to my Chevy Cruze and then maybe a CTSV when the G8 is paid for.....

I honestly thought you had the best chance of winning yesterday. Once you get your stock pile of parts installed its a whole new car. I need to get some gauges installed in everyone's G8 this year.
