We have had reports of G8's with stripe packages and even reports of LS3's in engine bays rolling around GM proving grounds.

One recently got caught out in Royal Oak, MI.

While I am not sold on the looks it does show some movement in the Pontiac camp.

I hope they offer that style wheel in 20". 18" is just barely too small for the given wheel well but I like the design more than either of the too-thick 5-spokes on the GT.

They only good thing out of this is GM is showing that they are throwing ideas around at the plant. - but they can keep the stripes.

Guess GM feels the need to have something to compete with Charger Daytonas. Too bad. The GT is too high class a car for that. No one would put those stripes and kiddie spoiler on a 550i, so they won't look right on a G8 either.

If GM wants to dress the car up, use the kind of exterior modifications that go on a M-series BMW, not a crummy Dodge.

We're better than that.

Tacky stripes would be exactly the WRONG image message for this car...and for Pontiac for that matter...I thought Lutz banished tacky stripes and cladding from the Pontiac playbook. NO regression now.

The G8 should have a premium image...a BMW for those who won't pay outrageous prices.

That spoiler is a must for me!!! The stripes are a negative.

I wondered what the stripe packages would look like. Now I know. The front one isn't that bad, if you're into that sort of thing, but the rear is aweful.

I'd get neither and be happier for it, me thinks.
