    The New Car (Not a 3s either) :(

    Well guys, as you knew I did sell my SL about two weeks ago and have since driven to Kentucky from Michigan to pick up a 05' Grand Prix GXP, Needed something more dependable with my college income I really love "Black Betty" but she went to a good home.

    The GXP:

    Has a 5.3 Liter LS4 V8, Producing 303HP and 323Ft. Tq
    Paddle Shiters
    Heads Up Display,
    Cross Drilled Rotors,
    Displacement on Demand (Thank God!)
    Leather Seats with Suede Inserts.
    And well just everything.


    All the being stock....

    Just figured I would let you guys know what I got into, I know its not a 3s. And I really really miss her but I will be into one again as soon as I can financially do it.






    Ahhh, One last fix. And it would literally be perfect for ......prolly a week BUT! thats still a week of perfection.

    I wish I could afford a car like that on a "college income" I can't even afford a 95 Grand Prix on my full time income.

    I got the car for a steal.

    I sold my 3k for $4700

    I bought this for $6000 ...I know , it was a steal, I had to replace a idler pulley and its been great since.

    I took out a loan for the difference and the gas.

    They are very nice, As far as performance. Its just ridiculous, in a good way! Insanely fast. Obviously it has more power than my SL had but It just feels like way more. Most likely because the power is available at a low rpm compared to the 3k. The paddle shifters work great, Will not shift until you tell it to and it is incredibly quick when you decide it's time.

    And believe it or not, torque steer is not a problem. You need both hands on the wheel but nothing that gets out of hand. The car actually came from the factory with 255/50?/zr18's and 225's out back. Just to help with grip.

    My one buggaboo with the GXP, it's got a V8 and it runs 13's out of the box. If it weren't so damn heavy and fwd it would probably be in the 12's stock.
