So i might be in trouble, i found out GM has a more basic V8 trim coming in at 34,990. Not only that, but GM corporate has put 12% rebate on the whole line up this month. Some dealers are letting these go for 29k. Temptation levels are high at this price point. It has some nice reasonable street tires 245/40/20 on square wheels. A bargain to buy and operate at least for this kind of power. Would you buy one? If so, would you got 10 speed auto or tremec 6 speed? i'm thinking i'd go stick but that 10 speed is formidable(and faster) and lets you get Remote Start. $38145 total MSRP with the Recaro seats, upgraded radio with NAV, $200 wheel option, all in a conservative white color. Also acceptable, the green one. If something happened to my Golf, and i HAD to replace it, i'd be placing an order!
