    I'de keep it and put the extra money you won't be using on monthly payments and put it into the Firebird. When you're done modding the Firebird then see about buying a G8 or whatever you want for a DD. Just my .02

    Keep the Bird & buy the G8! The G8 is not worth selling the bird for, they are two totally different cars.

    Depends on your needs

    Well they are completely different cars. This is like comparing apples to potatoes here.

    I believe it depends on your needs.

    Do you mind if I ask, do you have a family/3 or more people to give rides to on an almost daily basis?

    If so, maybe G8, sedans are more convenient for carrying multiple people.

    If its just you every day on your daily commute, by yourself, keep the bird.

    Also, someone correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the bird get better gas mileage than the G8 with the heavier sedan zeta platform?

    With gas prices the way they are you might want to consider that as well, especially for a daily driver.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    your talking about 2 differnt cars man, both have performance/sporty factors and will thrill the hell out of you. You should consider keeping the t/a until the G8's have come down in price

    come back and ask this question if they get the gxp going. i heard if they do a gxp it will be a 6.2L 400hp. you might wanna double check on it but if they dont just keep the t/a and buy a g8 gt later for a much better price.
