listen, im an 18 year old kid and i know what is going through his mind right now, everything everyone is saying is completely true, personally i would not go for the g8 everything for it is way to expensive and even though your friends might like for a bit in the end its just your car nd they will get over drooling over it everyday and than it won't be anything but a ticket magnet, i have an 06 grand prix gt and it is to just a tad on the to much power side for me apparently because it is my second one already because the first one i got 2 carless driving tickets and 2 exhibition of speed (racing) tickets and that was just with my first grand prix my second careless driving ticket was because i went head on into a telephone pole at 40 mph.. so personally go for something a little more under the radar because you don't want to end up like me and be in the hospital with airbag burns and bruised ribs... and not to mention without a license, if i were to give any advise go for a g6 gtp, its a nice car has plenty of horses and is less of a ticket magnet.

Go to a HP driving school or take up racing on the track. Get it (speed) out of your system where its safe, not on the street!
