Bought the car for $2500, can't beat getting the equivalent of a BMW 740 at that price. Engine is smooth, yet very throaty at full throttle. Car of course is 4200 lbs so performance is somewhat subpar due to the weight and "old person" gearing/shift points (Can be mostly remedied with a new ECU). I consistently get 26 mpg which is great for a V8. Front end styling along with factory wheels are rather uninspired/too small.
V8, Bose stereo with separate amplifiers on each channel, self diagnostic mode for all the interior accessories, immaculate leather condition even after 14 years, reliability, smooth ride, and it was a ~$50k car for $2500
Larger wheels, HIDs, better gearing, HICAS standard, and where's the DIC or HUD that tons of cheaper GM cars have?
