So I'm looking at a G5..

It's coming more and more clear I won't be able to really afford a Camaro anytime soon. And I'm itchin for a new vehicle. And I don't want a Cobalt anymore since GM screwed up the 09 model year..can't get pioneer sound system unless you got 2LT..which is automatic only. Which means no XFE.

The G5....can get XFE and pioneer sound system.
Which means I get badass gas mileage and my tunes, too.
Sure it's steel wheels..but I can live with that.
No rear disc brakes..but I can live with that too.
37 MPG..I can dig that.

Any thoughts?

EDIT: Looking through the "local inventory" on pontiac.com..there's one with the red sticker MSRP price of $18,000 near by. I sent the dealer that has it a request for a quote.
It's red with ebony interior.

Looking through sam swope's website, found this one:

The red tag price should be around $16,000.
That looks to be the perfect car for me..I do love me some blue.

the g5 is pretty cool. I'd say go for it.

I think the blue one is best.

Sunroof..pioneer sound system..5spd manual.

Ohhh yeahh.
I requested a quote on it, if all is how it seems..I'm jumping all over that thing like it was the last chopper out of Nam.

EDIT: I am curious about it though, the price seems to be a bit low considering all the options it comes with. Including this:
LPO, SPORT TRIM PACKAGE, includes instrument panel interior trim kit, interior door trim, shift knob trim and Silver Rally Stripe Package (dealer installed)
And it lists, under options, the remote vehicle starter. Which would be impossible to have since it's the 5spd XFE.

Sounds like a decent deal.

You might as well drive over to Swope's and take a look in person to see what options it actually has.

True, I don't know if they're going to be open on "black friday" though.

I like the G5's. They look really sporty with optional 5 spoke aluminum rims (GT) trim.

2000 Red 1SC Z28 A4 - dead for now
2005 Black GTO M6 6.0 - Split daily driver
1987 Silver Fiero GT - Split daily driver

I'm gonna stick with the steel wheels for now.

Sometime down the road I might get some Cragars or something if I feel sporty.

like that or something.

I'm going to have to find out what this "high mount spoiler" is on the Aero package that is included..if it's one of those rice-a-rific wings....then I won't want it anymore.

Wait..the "options" page on this thing is confusing me...I don't know if it's listing what is included with the vehicle or just AVAILABLE options.

Because it lists BOTH the automatic and manual trans.
And also has ALL emmissions listed.

I have no idea what this thing comes with after all.

If someone could run the VIN ( 1G2AS18H297224815 ) and let me know what it actually DOES come with..I'd appreciate it.
