Sixteen and your first car is a G8....I was born too early....
You won't be disappointed with a V6.
Mines a Hot White too, a daily driver that just rolled 170,000km.
Also running Bridgestone Blizzaks never had a problem in the two winters they've been on the car, motor thru everything thrown at them so far and sporty tire when its dry.
As far as the LY7, theres more V6 G8's out there that have never had timing chain problems than those that have. Regular maintainance is a must, I go 7500km between oil changes not 10,000km. Also changed every fluid in the car whe I got it.... helps the have a GM tech for a son.....
There are pet peeves, lousy key fobs, squeaky sunroof, terrible FM reception, but my G8 puts a smile on my face every time I drive it.
Let us know what happens.
