So I needed new daily **paint job update (pages 7,8)**

so after shopping for the long time for the car that i really like and fits my personal preferences (but not all) i found a great deal that i just couldnt pass on

Picked up today 2009.5 Pontiac G8 GT Panther Black Metallic with sport package and moonroof black/red interior.

What can i say car is mint in inside and mechanicly perfect with service records and still under warranty. outside isnt perfect but im gonna take care of that. for know i only have cell phone pics so i dont get banned. thanks for watching and share with me your thoughts !

I completely agree. If I got one with the optional 19s the first thing I would have done is paint the center caps silver to match the wheels.

It's not a GXP, but a G8 GT is good enough and fast enough. It also sounds pretty damned good, and I'm sure the price for a GT is juuuuust right nowadays.

Congrats on the new ride. Enjoy that torque, it is addicting.....

Very nice. One of the few GM vehicles I would have ever considered purchasing.

Of course, they go on and cancel it..

so after one day of driving my thoughts are...
its very comfortable...
its got power
10mpg city

i will definitely mod it.

painting the rims anthracite probably with plastidip

i was thinking about debadge or plastidip it black (i hate chrome)

i never notice that center cap lol but it will be fixed.


i have some noise coming from the back under hard acceleration after the stop and making a turn... it sounds like wheel hop but i cant feel it
