Can you give more background on the car? Is this for sale from a single owner, garage stored, only driven to church on sundays by a 70 year old grandmother or a used car lot in a rough neighborhood where the sales office is in the back of a truck camper with the truck's engine running? ;)

A lot of it depends on what you want to do to the car and if you know it's mechanically sound. Carfax might help uncover anything but not everything has to be reported in some states.

Are you looking at this because of budget or because you don't care about miles?

suggested retail of a 08 is 19,300. I just bought mine a few months ago with 85K on it and sun roof for 17,999 and thought that was a good deal as I haven't seen any under 21 k or so, plus mine came from the dealer with a lifetime powertrain so it helped with easing the higher miles.

Its a one owner, non smoker, and belonged to the ex husband lol im going to get a prequal tonight. Has a clean title used for long highway miles. Budget isnt a big deal but im more so looking into getting a good deal and putting money away for mods. Also color is mgm, why would red not be worth it?

It's just a joke...for all of the red fan boys who claim it is the fastest color (when everyone knows IOM is fastest!).

Good luck with the purchase.

That's too much if it's red. Any other color...AWESOME DEAL!!!!!
I agree. Although liquid red is a nice looking red on these g8s I think red is overrated in general and would have been one of my last choices when I was shopping for my G8. No offense to you guys with red cars:wall:

Sorry but you paid too much. I got mine with 75K miles Prem. Package garaged and 1 owner for $14K.

OP, I wouldn't pay more than $13K

wow not sure where you guys are finding your deals, I have been watching the market since I sold my last one and thought I was doing well. Cars and auto trader within 250 miles only had one cheaper and car fax showed it was wrecked.

thanks for the replys guys! Well shes taking care of some last minute recalls at the dealer and hopefully have it by tomorrow. Im hoping the low cost with high mileage will allow me to spend it elsewhere. Im glad this color is worth it over the red lol
