I am starting to play around on the site...really cool site. I rarely do anything more than play around on here. I guess I ought to chime in for #224. I bought it in december for my wife. Nothing to crazy with the mods.....
bmw wheels in black
shark fin antenna
solo axle back
Eibach pro springs
clear side markers
wrapped the lower bumper around the kidney grills in black
Just cause its an 09 model doesn't mean it was built in 09. Most 2008 G8 were build in 07. This should be common sense. My 2008 G8 was built in 07. My 2012 ram was built in 2011. All depends on the time of year they realse the car. Like the new 2014 Chevy SS will be released in fall of 2013.
Purchased my '08 G8 GT (second G8 GT in my stable now) on September 28, 2013. I currently live in the Green Bay, WI area and relocating to Louisville, KY soon. My second G8 is part of the First 888 (here's the VIN L988449).
Hey, I'm trying to start a database of G8s myself. I have found several of the "First 888" during my search. This info was gathered in January of 2014. Happy to share:

And here's the heart breaker,
888 73000 miles wrecked/salvage Don Scharf's in Wisconsin.
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?
