GXP's are a nice ride. Why not try and sell your trep here and if noone bites in a couple days trade her in.

when i first decided i wanted to get another car, i wanted to trade it in... But i decided not to at the last min...... So i'm going to keep it!!! But my neice just turned 17 and is in the 11th grade.. I may let her drive it around sometime..... But other than that i got a few mods i have been wanting to do to it like the two-tone paint job and it has a 2006 caravan factory DVD player in the dash with the AV jacks built into the deck and i am going to custom make a harness for the 2 headrest LCD screens i'm going to get from MP3Player store.com

Nice looking ride. I love the way the exhaust sounds on those things. Thats the only pontiac id buy, and ive been thinking about trading my car in towards one but im scared what the repairs bills will be like with that car having the northstar in it

Yea i was all set and ready to turn the trep in.......... It has 56k on the clock and it has a 3 year 36k mile bumper to bumper warranty which pushes the warranty up to 90k through Toyota.......
This car is fun to drive............

I filled it up today from E ($43 @ $2.54 a gallon)

if you know someone at GM, see if they can give you the original fuel maps for that motor. Since they detuned it about 100 horse and torque during development since it couldn't be faster then the GTO.

Nice looking car. I gotta say though, those seats don't look very comfortable.

So how does it compare to the trep? I love everything about those cars except the interior, or maybe i should say the dash design.
