Potential New G8 GT owner (Your thoughts?)

Hey all, I am car shopping right now and came across a great deal.

It's a 2009 G8 GT in Magnetic Gray Metallic, Onyx Interior and it has the premium package. The exterior and interior are almost perfect with respect toa few stone chips on the front bumper. The current mileage is 120k (all expressway).

The main downfalls for me here are
*No sport package (but I can grab some 2010 camaro rims and be set!)
*No sunroof (I have always had one and love the feeling of them being open

The perks
* Price (~$14,000, I can get it lower because it is a personal sale however that is also the KBB value ont his car.)
*completely stock (lets me know about the history of the car to a degree, owned by a older gentlemen)

I am coming from a 2006 Grand Prix GXP (LS4) and am unsure how I feel about the change. After talking to some people with GT's I understand the transmission is near bulletproof and the engine holds up well. I believe the LCA problems were solved by 09 as well.

Are the Atari gauges possible to add?
Anything that I should check out in particular while going to look at the car?

Here are some images of it . What do you think of the deal?

Looks like its in really good shape, and as a GT Owner i have been really happy with the car. I would just hesitate on the 120k, even if highway miles i would think that for 22ish K you could get something with under 40k. At least it also leaves room for a resale if things change in your life. Just MPO. good luck in any case!

I doubt you'll regret it. I have no complaints about my 2009 after 3 years now, no major mechanical issues at all & the color is exactly the same as this one. Very sharp!
