This is a first for me.

I went to the local Memorial Day car show and parked away from everyone but when I returned I saw another me parked next to me! This is the only other MSM GXP Iíve seen in CT. What are the odds?




Cheers.

Ha that would be cool to walk up on.

Is the other one a forum member? If not did you leave some contact info. I couldn't be side by side with a GXP and its copy without leaving a least a phone number behind.

Just based on the fact that there are 334 MSM GXPs I'd say the odds are extremely low.

That's awesome though. Both are beautiful cars.

Man, I've been thinking about getting the wheels on my MSM GXP PC'd gunmetal and I think this might have finally convinced me.

I'd say about 4%, since there are 81 MSM M6 Roof Onyx GXPs out of 1828 that you don't own.

Interesting catch with the mud flaps. Another interesting note... both have no tint. Neither good or bad, just interesting.

That is an awesome color combo! The GXP with the pc wheels has about the perfect ride hight. I love the GXP wheels.

Those are neither GXP wheels nor powdercoated on flatfoot's car. They're CTS-V wheels in a PVD finish (IIRC), and they do look awesome.

Yup, CTS-Vs, PVD Black Chrome. Pics do not do any PVD product justice. You need to see them yourself, they look amazing.

How's the car running Flatfoot? I want to see dyno numbers in June!
