G8, CTSV and Goat are my favorite cars out there, (alot because I have kiddos). Needless to say, I would have one if I could afford one.

Rare car and faster than ****. Ultimate sleeper to those who don't really know about cars. My A6 did a bone stock 12.93 and with simple bolt on's, I'm at 11.91. Do it.

Only con is that it's a gas guzzler.

Ours has been a good car.
My complaint about the manual is the screwed up hydraulics. The fluid gets dirty quick and the pedal starts sticking when it does, but thats a non-issue with the A6. I have the A6 in the V. Its nice, but it isn't as fun as the manual. Then again I'll never have to change a clutch in it and its all covered by the warranty. Clutches aren't.

Thanks guys , just jumping throgh the hoops right now. Getting a car fianced accross the border is not as easy as i initially thought. My bank cant secure collateral on the car until after its registered here. So either i need a cosigner or i need financing in the usa to get it here and then re finance it when it gets here. Ill get er though

Not looking good , when my bank looks up the cars value all they can see is the GT trim level pricing. Now they are trying to figure out why i want 35k for a car they value at 25k. Despite the fact that the person i got on the phone knew exactly the car i was talking about , right down to the hp...

Just bought a g8 gxp and question why when i could have saved 10k and went with a base gt. I can't get my HP tuneres to work on it but I may need the new bata version it seems. Very nice car for a DD, but to mod I think a Gt might me a better buy.

I wanted a V8 stick GM car that my family could fit in. I looked for a M6 GTO but none were in my area when I wanted to put coin down. My buddy said "Ill sell ya my GXP...."

I ran into trouble as well at the bank but get it straightened out after a little back and forth negotiations.
