The G8 GT is screaming deal, for sure. I like the fact that the car doesn't feel huge from behind the wheel, yet interior space is pretty good. The engine is plenty powerful, and the chassis doesn't beat you up.
I really do wish for some more expressive styling, inside and out. NOT the ugly, cladding-mad shlock from the recent Pontiac era, but rather something that is both handsome and also captures the uniquely American swagger of the big Pontiacs of the 1960s. The Aussie design is too blandly Euro-wannabe. And while we're at it, how about dropping the forgettable G8 moniker in favor of, say, Bonneville?
