    There's a real cute one at a dealer in town for 24K. I love the handling, speed, everything, it's my dream car. A definite upgrade from an 04 MCS. But yet I lingered, is it really worth it? Any thoughts?

    $24K seems like a reasonable price for a GP. How many miles on the car? You should be able to negotiate a better price.
    I went from a modded 03 MCS to the 06 GP. The GP is a nice combination of parts.

    I know chick drivers and using the term cute:rolleyes:

    It's actually badass, suck my exhaust Corvette drivers, screamin' hot.
    Must be the fact that I haven't slept for 3 days thinking about it, I chose the wrong adjective. Oh, and we're off to my mechanic tomorrow.

    So car FAILED!!!!!! Major oil leak, power steering leak, needs new belt tensioner, and the front and rear bumper had damage that would make it untrackable. Plus the high for a GP mileage. So I offered the dealer what I thought she was worth, they countered, I left. They followed me out the door. I still left. BUT I still want a GP, and I'm willing to pay for it :wink2 Really, I am!

    Rae, you did see the post from the guy in San Diego selling his GP. I think I saw it over on the nameless site.
