I need some opinions, please.
« on: February 21, 2019, 04:16:58 PM »
I'm trying to track down the history of my GXP. I had ordered "my" GXP with the Pontiac Dealer where I used to work. I kept going to the (for want of a better description), the nationwide "locator" to see which dealers were getting GXPs. On a lark, I drove past the Pontiac dealer 10 minutes away, and they had a Mean Yellow GXP on the showroom floor. This was a very small dealer (Key Pontiac - Bethlehem, PA. They were asking 5,000 over MSRP. I eventually got them down to MSRP. My car has Black bucket seats with gray only stitching. All the other ones I had seen had the red stitching. Was this common? The last six of my vin  reads 123001.

Thanks,
Todd Schrack  aka Tailhooker

Mine has the gray stitching too.  I think it was as common as the red.

As I remember the gray sticking was standard on the GXP and the red was a no charge option. I went with the gray.

Standard was black cloth seats on the GXP.  If you added leather seats you had the option of gray or red stitching.  When I get a chance I will post some picks of the brochure the dealers had for the GXP when they first came out.
