Thought I'd share what I got after selling the mk7 R...

After test driving many cars, I purchased this last weekend. Got a great deal for 0% apr for 72 months, and made the jump. It's fast, its comfortable, it has all the newer technology stuff! And it's fun!

2015 Chevrolet SS, Heron White, A6, with sunroof and spare. Purchased for $47,080 which is below invoice. Very rare car.

This is made by Holden in Australia. It has the LS3 which produces 415 hp and 415 tq, magnetic ride suspension like in the Cadillac's.

Ouch? This car is way more refined than the R was, but you definitely feel the weight difference.

Hey, I almost got Pontiac G8 GT back in the day, that car was fun to drift around every corner (unintentionally when its wet)

Not sure if the new one is more "refined" but G8 was a regular GM car, no "refined" anywhere close to it..

I use to be that way. My last American car was a 99 TransAm. I swore I would never buy another, but they have done remarkable improvements since then.

Like some of the reviews say, it's probably the most refined GM car in their line up. It's built better than other GM cars. The interior itself is refined with high quality materials everywhere. Some pics below if the interior of one.

6speed Auto, not manual. They are super hard to find but I didn't want one.
