Love the color, love the powertrain but can't get over the appearance. The CTS coupe is an abomination. My opinion not actual facts.

Congrats on the purchase, can I ask why you went with the coupe over the wagon/sedan?

X2. Not sure why GM thought it was a good idea to take a low volume car and make an even lower volume variant of it. And then make it but-ass-ugly.


Sorry jlasti. Like Zodiac said though, you've got a damn fine street fighter. I sure as hell wouldn't want to race against it.

Like them all. The milage was good ad it was close to home . Was by far the cleanest one we looked at. We like it. We have 2 G8s, so a 2 door works just fine.

Love the color. I see a silver coupe occasionally on my way to work but he's never even hinted at having fun with the car.

Wow, very cool addition! If I could find a wagon/manual for a decent price, the G8 would be moving. Can't wait to see it on the hill.

Have you fixed your rear wheels yet? Judging by the picture you posted above, you have your front wheels in the rear, and rear wheels in the front. Or the dealer might have installed sedan wheels on your car prior to selling it. The coupe is suppose to have the deeper wheels in the rear, like this.....
