Well I keep lookin at other cars and I have not really even begun to narrow down my search yet. But if somethin catches my eye. Thought I'd list it on here. 2008 gxp silver paint, black interior. 75xxx miles. I owe 10,200.
Wheels are factory and they gave rash on all of them. Some from a crappy tire guy. Dynn tunned, home made intake, cross over pipe wrapped, manual cutout under passenger side door rest of factory exhaust still intact. And flipped dog bone rubber. Car is in northern Colorado

Well my plan was to trade in the gxp for the Volvo and vw. But after lookin at the Volvo I'm gonna keep the gxp and buy the VW phaeton. My wife loves both cars so it was an easy sell

Think of it as an Audi A8L and a Bentley having a child.

The W12 feels very impressive considering this cars weighs in over 5000 pounds

It reminds me of my GXP in a couple ways. To me when you wanna go fast neither of them feel that fast. But like when your just crusing and Dont mean to go fast they both just seem to go.

Its very interesting when you hit second gear in the W12 it feels like it has a turbo and just pulls you very effortlessly. Its hard to explain. And its deceptive, because its so quiet you don't realize how quickly your moving.
I bought this car as my wifes car/family trip car. bigger more comfortable fo the long highway drives.

The middle picture looks like your in the cockpit of 737 ready to land at night. Cool car and unconventional, and I like unconventional.

Thank you very much. It feels like your in an aircraft driving it at night . The upper console has a few lights up top to complete the feeling.

As for mpg its not rated very high. Like 20 I think highway. But I figured that's still better than an SUV like a Tahoe. Plus I'd have sometimes much more unique. And its awd

The Large VVVV plastic deals are the air inlets for each filter housing.

Nice car man...... What MPG do you get on it ?

Hey i got 16.4 mpg on a 156 mile trip. With all types of driving conditions. Stop and go, idle time, 45-55 city stop lights, 65-80 highway, some constant cruise, some traffic variable.
