Dang all the right mods and low miles. Low 20s?

Not sure what's a fair price but I'll chime in and say I bought a '09 completly stock with 54k miles about 2 years ago for 17k.
I'd imagine you could get around 16-17 maybe more?

Quite disappointing, but did not feel like waiting a year to sell it. I feel I found the right buyer who is older and had more time on his hands. He also owned one in the past and is not intimidated by all the modifications.

She has been very well taking care of and I have a lot of pride in her but I am possibly looking for another car experience lol like a Veloster N (hopefully I don’t get roasted). Sport package is what again in these cars?

So far I'm satisfied with my Veloster Turbo. It's fun to drive, handles well, comfortable and roomy. It's a little on the heavy side performance wise.

Currently having an issue on cold summer mornings...when I start the car, the rpms bogs and the engine eventually stall. But I think I may have a case of bad gas as I went to a VERY low traffic Shell Station in my area...

I think the N is a little overpriced, but that's only my opinion.

Myra it’s on the pricey wise but I feel for the performance side of it it well worth it tbh...stick, there lsd(forgot what it’s called),N mode and the grin thing they call it looks like a fun car and I really like the looks. It’s a complete 180 from my previous cars but I would be welcome and happy for the change if I get there.

I totally understand the 180, happens to the best of us, I myself just sold the G8 for a Subaru BRZ TS. It's a little overpriced but the STI goodies and upgraded suspension is kinda cool. Also only 50 production total for Canada.

Speaking of this, I have been looking for a G8 GXP in white for some time now. I see there are 2 red ones currently for sale with under 70k miles both for around $24k. One is a 1 owner in IN the other is a manual in TX. Can't ever seem to find a white manual. Don't want a low mile car as I am going to drive it, not store it! My biggest question to all of you is how easy is it to get parts now and down the road?

There is a white manual GXP for sale on car gurus but it's $44,900 and only around 7,000 miles. If power and fun factor is what your looking for Koda's car listed above is perfect, has great mods and all up to date, just not manual, but then again you can put it manual mode and shift it and no clutch to deal with.

Dang. That’s a very clean car.
Are you actually going to sell it?
Do you have any videos of the car?
