Hello all. Just bought a G8 GT, Stryker Blue. I was wondering I have read this particular blue was not available in 08. But but my car was built in April of 08. So am I to assume that the 08's were actually built in 07? The engine badge confirms the color code, if I remember 608r, also there are no gauges in the middle of the dash, just a cubbie. Thanks in advance for any responces.

Welcome to the forum. Stryker Blue also known as voodoo metallic was only available on 2009 G8's. Color codes are 39U and WA608R

Welcome. I still love when people stare at my car and ask "What is that and what motor is in it?"
