#550 of 1278 Got the G8 brochure
Jan 31, 2008 (9:10 pm)
Too many pages to scan but I can confirm that Pontiac marketing failed to identify that the premium pkg gives you power 6 way seats with manual height and lumbar adjustability. So technically you have a total of 10 way adjustments. Also it's for both driver and front passenger, at least the pic in the brochure shows this.
No mention on the 6MT in there though
Dealers are already tagging their vehicles as of Jan. 31, 2008. They will be able to tag their allocated amount for January and do so again for February. Tagging will end Feb. 27, 2008 for the first shipment, so if your dealer was unable to tag what you want the first time around, they can for February allotment.
Quoted GM Tagging Announcement
GM is pleased to announce that the initial tagging for 2008 MY G8 units will begin on Thursday, January 31, 2008 and conclude on Wednesday, February 27, 2008 for monthly tagging allowances based on the January consensus.
If a desired pattern order is not available at gminventory.com when tagging, please check back within your monthly tagging period since the site will be updated regularly as vehicles are shipped.

hmmmm... so does that indicate when they will arrive? If first shipment tagging ends Feb. 27th ... does that mean something like early April in the showrooms?

January's batch will start to appear in dealers beginning of March (timeframe is 4-6 weeks), so yes.... we can predict that February's will appear late March, early April. I have a fully loaded Ignition Orange tagged. - Should be showing up first week of March. It's an AT but we'll see if I decide to wait for an MT.

ok... so when they say first shipment, they don't mean the first boats or something.(?) So the real first shipment went out in Jan?

The first shipment has arrived in California and are now going through Customs and put on transport truck to their respective dealers across country.

good to know.
#557 of 1278 There's a red G8...
Feb 05, 2008 (8:20 am)
making the auto show rounds. I saw it at DC and again at Philly. I swore that if I ever bought another new car, it would be something more economical. But I have to admit, that new G8 is seducing me.
#558 of 1278 2009 model year changes
Feb 08, 2008 (8:43 am)
According to another forum, 2009 model goes into production on March 3, 2008. Additional colors include something called "Karma Metallic." Supposed to be a dark grey/blue; I'm very interested in seeing this in-person. Also, rumor has it the GXP version will be available soon after 09 model starts up; so far only 6-speed manual, upgraded brakes and some cosmetic int/ext changes are verified. We would assume a horsepower upgrade, but so far there have not been any specifics.
