    My new wheels: Solstice GXP

    Click on the picture then the small magnifying glass underneath the pictures to see the full size version.

    Just picked it up last Tuesday off of the showroom floor. Put on 360 miles so far [need 500mi to finish the break in and change all of the fluids].

    The only options it has are the Premium Package [leather seats, power windows/locks, foglights], A/C, automatic, and chrome 18" wheels.

    So far I am loving this car. I'm taking it easy while breaking it in [no going over 70mph, no redlining, ect], but I love the power it has and handles like it's on rails. It has double wishbone A-arms front and rear with bilstein coilovers and thicker swaybars, plus the 245/45/18 Goodyear Eagle F1 tires and 18" wheels. It has the K04 turbo [found on some Audi's], so turbo lag is almost nonexistant. A lot of people and magazines have run the car at 14.1 in the 1/4. One owner was able to go 13.8 with a cat-back and intake.

    The dealer wanted $29,995.00 for it, but I got it for $27,500.00 before tax. My dad was able to use his Military Appreciation Month discount and a GMS.

    Don't have any major plans for it at the moment. A lot of tuners are trying to crack the computer at the moment.

    1. Car looks great.
    2. You need to take more pics.
    3. Isn't it better to drive it hard during the break in if you plan on driving it hard normally?

    I'll take more pics when it stops raining

    After I get the fluids changed at 500 miles, I'm going to drive it like I normally would.

    No, my dad is using it as his summer car, but not his daily either. I have my G5 and he has his Jimmy as daily drivers.

    Nice looking car but IMO that car screams for this.

    Would you like to donate $25k to my LS7 fund?
