2008 Pontiac G8 GT: So Cal Rain

January 22, 2009

There are few things about the Pontiac G8 that feel a little Audi-ish. The round but subtly aggressive style of the exterior (esp the rear) and the rubberized feel of some interior bits. I'll tell you what's NOT very Audi about the G8 - the windscreen wipers. In our A4 Avant, those suckers can clear off snow, ice, mud and rain like nobody's business. The G8's wipers leave a bit of a streak and I don't like it. Thankfully, it doesn't rain much here in So Cal - for the rest of you, better get those Rain X wipers or that cleaner stuff that makes the water bead up real nice. Is it just me or can some little things bug more than they should?
