    Default Sold my G8 6 months ago what to buy next?

    Soooo I sold my G8 GT back in April. I got a really good offer that I couldn't pass up. So I've been thinking of getting a 6th gen 1LE, But now IDK I really love a Chevy SS or another G8 GXP. No rush just waiting for the right moment to pull the trigger. 6spd chevy ss is still in mid 40's and yes i'm cheap so my question is would I be dumb to buy another g8 but gxp 6spd in the 30k price range basically a 10 yr old car?

    I'd go with the SS. Still a rare car and you get MRC.

    The SS is "natural progression" from the G8. Same car, just newer. If you liked the G8, stick with it!
    Good luck.

    '16 and '17 SS are really nice cars. I loved my 6M while I had it, but I daily drove the car so it wasn't always a good time. If I were able to afford to keep it as a second vehicle, no doubt I would have. The Jungle Green on the car looks amazing.

    If you like speed go with the 6th gen! They are badass cars.
