Good price?

I found a red g8 gt with 122k miles for $11,500. To me it seems like a killer deal but maybe I am mistaken? Obviously assuming it's in decent shape. It's from a dealer and I asked for underhood shots but from what I can tell its 100% stock.

There was one like that at a dealer up here 2 weeks ago for $12,888, disappeared and re-surfaced today, same place for $15,888.
Guess somebody made a boo-boo on the price.
If you walked in with the cash when they realized the mistake there'd be some douchey reason they couldn't sell it to you.

Look in the for sale section some is selling one for 8500 it's beat up a bit but has all the modstuff you'll spend money already. It's a gt.

I did see that post and to be honest I'd probably rather have one with less issues. I actually am not in the market till after this winter as it would do me no good and will just sit but for the right deal it might make sense...

I'd check the carfax and if it hasn't been wrecked, I think it's a good deal. When I was looking, I wanted a bone stock one too. My thinking was it probably hasn't been beat on and raced.

Carfax is clean shows its had 3 owners which I thought was a lot? I'd actually prefer one with some mods as long as I'm buying from a enthusiast. From a dealer stock is best in my opinion.

I think there's a couple for sale in the fb groups that have been modded.

It's definitely not going to sit through winter at that price unless there is something seriously wrong with it. Good deal if you don't mind the mileage. I'd also call up GM and see if the lifters were ever replaced.

Yep, that's cheap for a dealership -- but who knows what you're getting into.

That's the car. I saw some underhood pictures. Looks all stock and clean.

You should go drive it and listen to the front end and motor. It looks good and since it hadn't been wrecked, it may be a good deal. It does seem low for a stealership.

Not all dealers charge an arm and leg for these cars, some want to sell them quick so they price them accordingly. That being said, those are some cheap ass uniroyal walmart tires on there haha. It was most likely adult/senior owned, most enthusiasts wouldn't stand leaving a GT completely stock.

Another thing to consider is whether or not it comes certified for that price.
AS IS low price out the front door but could be one hell of a shock out the back door after they've poured parts into it for days on your dime to make it roadworthy.
Have to admit it does look good enough in the pics to follow up on.

It's not going to last long, so unless you're able to jump on it now, then I wouldn't get your hopes up if you're looking to buy in the spring.

As for the tires, those aren't bad tires, actually. I cut 1.9 60' on them in my 2002 Camaro SS (they were on the car when I bought it).

I can purchase now for the right vehicle. I just prefer to wait. I may go drive it and see if it's as good as it looks and maybe even see if they would negotiate further?

Seems like they are really eager to sell the car. If everything checked out what would you guys offer?

Go to cars.com and search G8's. There's a red GXP with 13,000 miles, 1 owner, and no wrecks listed for 20k. We think it's a scam, but it has several pics and written like it's legit. May be worth calling and following up on.

On the car your looking at, id offer $9,500 and expect a counter of $11,000 and settle for $10,500.

I see the red gxp, crazy deal and seems legit. Anyone tried to talk to the guy? $20k is more than I want to spend right now.

I gotcha. I thought about calling him, but I was scared it would be legit and I'd be at the bank tomorrow trying to borrow the money and buy it and sell mine. Too much of a headache for me right now and I'm happy with mine.

Someone on the other forum checked and the phone number to the $20k GXP is to a businesses fax machine.
