This G8 is tempting me...

I work down the street from a high end dealer (mostly sell high end cars, Bentlys, BMWs, Lamborghinis, you name it they got it). About 3 weeks ago they put a Liquid Red G8 GT facing the side street i go down to get to work. Its soo tempting, only $25k w/ 20k miles on it. I find it funny i had to drive 3 hours, 2 states away to get mine, a V6, and now every morning and afternoon there is one staring at me as i pass to and from work.

Forgot to add... its sitting next to an 05' Corvette which is about $35k. Im really interested to see which one sells first.

If you're thinking about it, then you can probably afford both your current V6 and the GT. Keep the V6 as the daily driver and toss it up on the weekends with the GT.

Hang on a minute. Look under the cars for sale section here. There's a board member with a Stryker Blue with 7700 miles on it for less than that!
Now that's tempting...

things are not as they appear to be.........

I'm not so sure the first 888 are "very coveted". I am more interested in the 2009.5's myself. Those extra cup holders makes all the difference to me. Oh, and bluetooth is nice.

Yea I agree... there is nothing special about the first 888..... you dont get more money for it, there were improvements in the later ones, etc.. etc... so dont base your decision on the number.....

it is an awesome car... and I agree you may be able to find a better price than that out there......

Why not just try and trade in your V6 G8 for that car, sounds like a no brainer.

I've considered doing the Onstar Upgrade so I can have bluetooth rather than having to spend money on minutes.
