For example, I have 2006 bmw 750li which I drove the crap out it for last 50k miles. Always used automatic car wash and never stop or slow down for bad roads, bumps, never warmed up the motor and even put 87gas when station was out of 93, but car still feels and looks like i just got it. now, if you want to talk about electrical problems in bmw is another story.
If I were in your position, I'd probably go with GXP. The extra $15,000 (or more?) you save could go for a lot of mods. You just gotta sacrifice "style", for a probably better overall deal on a proven chassis with a rear-end that might have worked out the bugs that plague us V owners.
Pure gearhead= GXP
Refined gearhead=04-07 CTS-V
09 CTS-v, whole nother story. I'll take the fastest production sedan on stock tires ever please!
I was actually looking at the G8's when I heard they were coming out. But then I found a V. Cadillac ride with all the luxury with Corvette drivetrain?? <- win/win. The GXP is about $10k - $15k more than what you can get a good used V for right now. I would describe the look of the G8/GXP's as a BMW with a pontiac front end. I would describe the V's as a streamlined arrow that doesn't really look like anything else. Ya, there's small issues with V's, but the G8's haven't been around long enough to find out their issues...yet. (GXP not even out yet)
The G8 is nice but either way you look at it, its still a PONTIAC. The CTS-v is the sportiest 4dr you can bye at a resonable price. IMO. Performance wise the G8 is awesome but it looks like compared to the CTS-V. I mean seriously test drive a CTS-v to the nearest Pontiac Dealer compare. I
m sure it will be an easy choice if you have an eye for style.
I think my V looks badass but that doesn't mean a Pontiac can't. The G8 looks pretty slick as well. And I have an eye for style.
