I have yet to see a G8 on the road with a woman driving. You two guys know you just said it was for her so you could get it.

Well heres my quick take on them:
The G8 has alot more trunk space which is nice,a nice solid feel on the road (about like the GTO).
It makes good power but seems more smooth in its delivery (maybe because of the 6 spd and how quiet it is). It could definatley use a Tune though (Tq management is terrible on the shifts and the trans shifting is soft).

Yes I do--I put Blizzacks on it this winter and it did OK--although I didnt even have to drive it alot in the snow.

Yeah--I havent seen many G8's around here --period. So maybe she'll be the first woman daily driving it 10 miles each way to work everyday. She is sad to see her previous car go though. SHe loved it--2007 Saturn Aura XR. It was loaded with the 3.6/6 spd auto.
