I have to agree on the colour. Yours is much nicer. I don't know, the other red screams "Toyota Corolla" to me. Hopefully I'm not offending anyone out there with a G8 in the lighter red. :oops:

I always loved my Liquid Red, but everybody has different taste. I pretty much like a Holden vehicle in any color though. :lol:

Ewald in Franklin is 3 miles east of me down the road.
I live in Muskego just west of there.
I guess it is a small world.
I was down in your area (Elgin) last Friday with my nephew picking up a Bonneville from Copart.
That is quite an operation they have.
One last question.
Is Sears going to file chapter 11 this week?


Yea, then I was back up there last Sunday to get the old van.

That whole area over there between 20 on the north, West Bartlett Road on the south, and Gifford on the west is like an auto junkyard heaven. I'm on the other side of Elgin though, out by Randall Road. Did you go in off of 20 and Shales Parkway/Bluff City? If so that's the intersection I go through every morning/night going to/from work. Going west, from south Shales Parkway, it is a nice sweeping curve that I LOVE to blast through with the Cadillac and well now, the G8 before you actually merge into west 20 traffic.

Speaking of work, rumor is tomorrow (Monday) morning. I'm actually somewhat shocked because I thought, that once in Bankruptcy protection, ESL (the majority shareholder), loses control in the process. Anyway, I, among many experts figured it would be this weekend that it would be announced because the markets are closed. The funny thing was, it has been REAL quiet, and I mean that in the fact there is little "chatter" going on in regards to it.

Thanks Will. :)

Dropping in late, but I approve.

I agree with Will, I haven't seen a factory color on a G8 I didn't like. I've seen red, white, black, blue, and silver, but I haven't seen one with your color yet. I like that color.

(Colour, for you :canada: )

:poke:

I second that notion.

Put the WeatherTech liners in tonight. I put all the floormats strategically in the trunk, along with some nice ones I had in my Tahoe years back (the option GM accessory ones with the heavy rubber bottom and the nice cut pile on top). This way when I do the axlebacks, it isn't as obtrusive inside the car. :)

I came home tonight and the dog didn't even hear me (to warn the wife). So I remarked to her that I need louder mufflers... :)
Axlebacks. That's what got me into the GXP. Wife heard the gurgle and had to have it. Who am I to say NO? I don't notice much droning inside the car with them; I actually kinda like to hear a little tone back there.

Yea, I have a guy with 2015 SS mufflers I may pick up. They're slightly louder than the G8's.

Mine admitted last night that it was too quiet because she nor the dog heard me. :) So I need to make it a little louder.
