Are you going to park it in the garage for an investment? If not, then I wouldn't be paying that type of premium for an ultra low miler. At $29k, I'd be willing to take 10-20k more miles, pay $4,000 more for a GXP

Who buys a g8, then let's it collect dust in a garage for 3 or 4 years then trades it in at a Toyota dealership? I don't get it. Maybe the mileage is a typo?

Yea, if the mileage was a typo, I sure hope the price was also.

I agree with Jeff92, pay a couple more thousand and get a M6 GXP or buy a heavily modified GT on here for same price and a little more mileage.

Just couldn't believe the mileage, condition, options and proximity to my house, only 5 miles away!

Why the premium price!

Not a diff steering wheel. It just has a two-tone leather wrap on it. I got one just like it from Wheelskins.

I'm sure they are punching in the KBB values and the ultra low miles is what is inflating the price. I'd sit on it. I don't think anyone is going to buy it at that price.

No good. I paid that much for mine brand new 3 years ago. With the 19" wheels. I'd offer them $25775 and see what they say.

Something seems... Off. The wheels, steering wheel, absurd mileage...

Aren't there some states that don't require you to report salvage/totalled cars? I'm wondering if this was something like it... re-built and then sold in another state.

How do you like the wheelskin cover? My wife's wedding ring scatched the crap out of my wheel and I was thinking about doing a wheelskin.

The Wheelskins cover is high quality. I think it was my first mod almost 3 yrs ago. Still looks brand new. I got it for $65, just to save the steering wheel from getting abused.

GM was blowing these cars out for $26,500 three years ago so what would justify a car three years older and more mileage to be worth more? A classic it is not...

I totally love my G8 and plan on driving it to the ground. But I'm also a realist and understand these cars are desirable to not that many people. Mostly because people don't know what these cars are.

I saw the same cycle with the GTO's. Prices remained solid for a while then started dropping fast. Even on low mileage garage queens. I expect the G8 to hold it's great resale value for a 1 year or 2...then slide down... :)

Sadly, I agree. I paid $23K for mine brand new, so it's hard to justify.
