G8 Finally hits Michigan

Picked mine up tonight from Red Holman Pontiac in Westland. I also know that Rowan in Southgate has got a few of their G8s in.

Are they 888s or non-888s?

Rowan said they got 2 888s and one non-888.

As far as pricing goes; Red Holman honored my GMS and I handle all my financing through Navy Federal Credit Union. The leasing programs on these things are not very good at all.

Talking Got Mine from Jim Noonan

They were the only ones that had a white G8 GT with SUNROOF!!! It's not one of the 888, but that doesn't really matter to me..it's not like the insignia is in gold or anything...

Bob Jeanotte (Plymouth) also has a couple. One red and one white. IIRC, the white one was an 888. I'm waiting until this summer to drive and get closer to a decision. I like the G8 but also the Sol GXP. Completely different cars, but both interesting.

Run your numbers again. I just paid off a 5 yr loan at 0% apr with GMAC that covered full list plus tax and title on a GP, that's simply $30,000 in 60 equal payments. Wish we could get that low a % again, but heck, you want lower payments either trade something in or hand over some cash.

7% (average bank rates) over 60 months, $500 per gets you $25,250 borrowed. Adjust up or down from there.

2yr lease is over $560 GM employee price, unfreakin real no way I'd pay more than my $50,000 CTS cost per month LOL

This is the reason I'm still going to consider the CTS when it's time to buy. But I figure by then, there'll incentives on the G8 and it'll be more competitive. Don't know, maybe I'll get a Solstice GXP.
