Thats a shade high, maybe 24K if it's in like new condition, then again that's a rare color so maybe they are taking advantage of that in the higher asking, maybe others will chime in?

Worth a try, but they probably won't take it, most dealers seem to hang pretty tight around the asking with these cars even after they sit on their lots for months. I just bought another G8 Gt a couple months ago, a 2008 panther black with 27K miles on it, mint condition and the dealer wanted 23.6 for it and would not come down a dime... It's the only car I ever paid asking for in my life. Then they knocked me up for a $399.00 doc fee which brought it to 24K, look out for those doc fees too. They did not care less if I walked away from the deal or not

I had looked at a lot of them and found none as nice as the one I got plus it was a 3 hour drive I had to make to look at the car so I just bought it rather than keep on looking, when they mentioned the 399 fee though that they would not back down on it sure made it tempting to walk away from the deal though. If you have the time and are not real picky about what color you want than best to keep looking, I don't think your going to find one a real lot cheaper though. The only time I see these cars around $20K or so is when they have like 50 or 70K miles on them and believe me I know the values of these cars very well, I've looked at a lot of them.
