    I found a dealer who has 2 in stock, both red, manuals.

    Said he would accept military gms pricing (6k back), and is offering the 4k cash back as well. So it's a 10k rebate.

    I could get it for 30k, before taxes.

    Or I could wait for my camaro 2ss. Opinions?

    I remember a few OTers bought them in the $34k range, so yes.

    I saw a new yellow Camaro going down the road yesterday. Had the black hockey stripes on the side. Wait for the Camaro.

    I don't need a 4 door. I'd prefer a coupe. Plus I think the camaro has better performance numbers.

    DD? The G8 looks, I don't know if it is, more comfortable to drive.

    G8's have horrible depreciation that's what bothers me as well.

    If you're going to be buying a G8, resale value shouldn't even be part of the consideration.

    The G8 gets great mileage for being a V8.

    It gets 24mpg on the highway. That's like Honda Accord V6 territory :ugh: Not everyone is a cheap fuck who looks at mpg when purchasing cars.
