'09 G8 GT, traded up to an '09 G8 GXP (love it!). If my posterior fits in the seat there very well may be one in my future. Hard to find anything that compares to the G8.

My name stems for what I see everyday in my rearview mirror in traffic. Seems everyone wants to draft. It does not matter what lane I am in. My only complaint on my G8 GT is the seat. Way to firm. It has torn me up!!

Hi I am Roman I sold my G8 GT back in March in hopes of picking up new SS but They were not available up until now. I wound up with a ATS 2.0 t RWD Lease. ATS is a nice car but i cannot adjust to it after G8, its smaller and the power is not there. So my plan is to pick up SS in about 2 years either new at a good price or used. I was on both G8 boards and still visitor. This is great forum lots of G8 guys as they say ones you go Holden you cannot turn back. Something about these cars cannot explain that draws you to them. maybe its because they are made in Australia.

The first time I drove our 09 G8GT on a little country road near the house that has a few curves I was hooked on the handling and my car is a Z06 corvette at the time an 09 now have a 2012 z06.

My name is Nick. I currently own a 2009 G8 GT with 55K on the clock. Love the car and love how much attention it gets to this day!(The exhaust might help a little bit haha)

I cant afford an SS but im really glad they decided to bring the Commodore back here because its a **** of a package. Maybe a couple years down the road ill be able to pick up a used SS.

commodoreman2000-

They are saying 5 months for arrival not built yet. That works perfectly for me, I don't want to receive the car in the middle of the winter. I also don't have to worry about any ADM because the dealership is where my family's body shop buys all our GM from. They are currently asking 4-5 over on their one allocation.

z51vette-

I really wanted the orange they get down under but I'm sure the red will be sharp. I'm at SEMA this week heading to see the Jeff Gordon SS today!

I really liked the look of the quad exhaust. There seemed to be many people interested asking the Chevy guys about the car. The one I talked to said he owns a G8 and loves the new SS.

On a side note Chevy was giving free hot laps in the new vette as long as you test drove another vehicle (silverado/spark). The vette is an absolute beast!

I'm Jerry. I have a G8 GXP and have been following this forum to see all the excitement for this new SS like I did with the first 888 G8s. Its great to hear all the talk and stories, and then the delivery of the car. I don't plan on trading the GXP in, but in a few years from now might have to get the SS.

Prior ownership = 3 G8's! First G8 was an MSM M6 GXP with roof, 2nd was MGM GT no roof however GXP front and rear added, 3rd was another GXP M6 SRM with roof. There was an 04 GTO M6 before that. Current household inventory is a 2007 Mustang GT vert, 2010 Camaro SS M6, 2012 CTS Coupe, and a 2014 Taurus SHO. The SHO will be gone in the spring replaced by the SS unless I can pull off a deal sooner. The AWD in winter seems to make sense but I've driven the G8 on snows and it's an animal!
