Saintor, the fact that this is an E90 forum doesn't mean that we can't talk about how other cars compare to ours. In fact, this kind of threads appear on the forum all the time, i.e, G5, Audi, MB, and others...

Anyhow, back on the subject, yes the G8 looks a lot like a BMW.... a year ago I saw one but didn't ride it. The BMWs interior is much more elegant than the G8 but I really was impressed with the exterior and the numbers.

This should be int he general autos (non-BMW) forum.


GM build quality is still crap. If they built better quality cars that were not numb to driving, I would genuinely consider them.

Don't be so sure. Edmunds put the G8 GT up against the Charger R/T and mentioned the numbers for the G8 is very comparable to the 535i they tested earlier.

I might ride in one of these, but I still would never own one.

2009 Pontiac G8 GXP
Pontiac has announced a G8 range-topper with a 402 hp 6.2-liter LS3 V-8. How does 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds sound?



Or wait until 2010 to get it in the El Camino version

I hope that was sarcasm haha, because having an organized forum doesn't suck.

well i've read like three articles all squaring the g8 with the 550i... so i dont need to be so sure... the magazines are comparing them.

the 535i doesnt have a V8...

Car and Driver states: "If the G8 begs to be driven, then the 550i begs to be flogged". Regardless, it's a HUGE step up for Pontiac, and you have to give kudos to the American industry for stepping up their game. The fact that it's even being compared to a $60k+ 5 series is something of an acheivement all in itself.

i'm with you... it's a 'general car discussion' area.
a couple of the folks here just can't seem to pull those poles from their asses.

i agree, the G8 looks to be a very promising american car and a great value... but no BMW
