First 888 have a logo on the passenger side of the dash. Yours is not one of them.

I was wondering why my door say's 04/08 MFG date on it but registration say's 09' model year. Clearly it was an early 08 make.

I got #885 gt black on black. with a manual transmission. :)
I know 888 & 886 is dead and if 887 is also then I have the last living first 888.
Mine was dead then I brought it back to life.
( and who ever said I don't see why someone would be missing the dash trim. And if you don't have it you don't got a first 888. Mine was missing when I got it and it has a normal trim piece. And I'm 100% sure its #885.)

I have a 2009 G8 GT and I'm hearing a clunking sound in my steering usually when I'm backing out of my driveway and pulling away. The steering doesn't seem loose or sloppy but the clunking is driving me crazy. I'm thinking it's my intermittent steering shaft but I'm not positive. Has any one else experienced this issue?
