    GXP is half a minute off the V2, unoffcially. . Not a bad alternative for the price if you have to have an automatic. The GXP shares quite a few performance upgrades from the V2.

    As of when? The "low placed infotainment screen" in my old M5 works just fine as a nav.

    I suspect this isn't a "US regs" thing, but maybe a "GM lawyers" thing like the GTO gas tank was.

    Start looking for whatever nav electronics the Aussies put in the Commodores they export to the Mideast, see if any Aussie aftermarket pieces are usable in the US, etc.

    The Commodore/G8 is a very nice product, the parking-brake handle is cheesy and the CTS interior is better-trimmed, but the G8 is much roomier, I'd argue it's a better overall shape than the CTS (a bit lower beltline and the outward visibility is a bit better), they're both a little overdramatic in the nose detailing...
