Hey everyone! I’m excited to announce I am back in a G8! I beat leukemia for the second time and my wife says it’s okay to treat myself a little lol.

It will be my third G8 and second GXP. It was a one owner who bought it from a Pontiac dealership in the Seattle area and only drove during the summer. It has 70k on the clock and is in immaculate condition. It is and auto PBM with, interestingly, no sunroof. It has a Rotofab CAI on it and a can tune. The interior feels brand new. I plan on keeping this long term and treating it as a semi-collector car that gets driven. It’s our second car and will be treated as such. PPI revealed nothing but new tires needed and new TPMS sensors.

First order of business is paint correction and protection. I’m not sure how far down the modification path I want to go since I’d like to keep it original but I do like to go fast. So that’s a hard one to resolve. Any suggestions?

anyway, it’s good to be back!

Congrats man, on beating Leukemia twice, first and foremost.

Enjoy your new to you GXP. Looks like a great near stock and clean example. I never don't enjoy a minute I'm out driving mine.

NIce! It certainly doesn't look like it needs a paint correction. It appears to have been well-cared for.

My GXP definitely needed it, but it turned out beautifully with a few spots needing a little extra work. Good luck with yours!
