    Goodbye Alero, Hello....

    2004 Grand Prix GTP Comp G.

    I love this thing. Yes it is FWD and auto but it is very comfy. I absolutely love it. If you don't know what Comp G is, look it up. Pretty much top of the line GTP. I got the original window sticker as well and it cost $41,000 CDN when new in 2004.

    This was a very nice car, too bad GM never gave it a serious interior. Among all W-bodies, one could forgive Pontiac the most easily for poor interior packaging.

    Wowee, nice ride. The colour is not my top pick, but Grand Prixs and especially GTPs and even more especially the Comp Gs are great rides!

    Good choice and the fact its a comp G makes it even sweeter have fun with your new ride

    I tested it out on the test drive and I quite like it. It is responsive and it does feel like you could have fun. I haven't used it since buying the car because I'm trying to prove people that the GP is getting just as good mileage as my 4-cylinder Alero was.

    It was on awesome vehicle. It outperforms 85% of the vehicles out there even in the corners.

    I love the colour. It is not white, black, or silver. It is Sport Maroon Red Metallic.

    I already am. Next is to open the intake a bit so that I can hear the supercharger.

    I love the color combination! Now go get a Ram Air hood.

    Well as long as you like it. I'm just no fan of the darker burgandys/maroon. I'm a silver or black man myself.
