    Talking new car...

    Got this badboy for the wife since she's been driving her grand prix since 1998. That will become my daily for my work commute and I'll park my truck a bit more. Wanted to get an Audi Q7 but that will have to wait until school loans are paid off.

    Fully optioned minus sunroof. 2009, 13 miles









    wife already told me no racing it. will tint the windows and thats probably it.
    I love black cars, but damn I got alot of work ahead.

    Awesome buy. I love G8s and they look so sexy in black. Only thing that bugs me on them is the wheels. The silver with the black center looks too...."base model." I guess thats how they all are though.

    FWIW, the second night after picking up my Fiance's formula she asked "so when are we bringing it to the track?"

    man just looking at that car I got a headache for all the detail that needs to be taken care of in black cars. I mean I love spending a day polishing my car as much as the next guy.. I just dont like it all to go down the shitter by driving for 20 minutes.

    thanks for the compliments. couldnt beat that I got it for $7200 under sticker price. It will be alot of work but it will be worth it. My wife got compliments from some guys not 10 minutes into the drive home. Im positive I wont drag race it, but maybe will try out some mustangs on the highway. I dont mind the centercaps. the wheels look good when they are moving.
    think I should change the oil out in a couple hundered miles?

    You cant have that mind set when owning a black car or you will drive yourself crazy. I went from washing my firebird (red) about every week to a black gto and washing it about every 2-3 sometimes 4 weeks.

    it does on the drivers side...

    nice choice, we came so close to buying a g8 gt over the v6 challenger for my wife...they challenger was too sexy though.. She drove the grand prix since 1998? What year was the gp and how many miles did it have? I couldn't imagine keeping a car 11 years, the challenger we will have for at least 5 but my average is 2 years tops. I drive and get bored too much, 11 years I'd have 300,000 miles on a car if I bought it new
