Just thought I'd stop buy and get to know some of you. I have never owned a Grand Prix before. Owned a 97 Cobra and an 03 SRT4 before this. If any of you have any questions about the car, feel free to ask. Its an awesome machine. Of course, it will be a while before I truly find out what it can do due to the break in process.

Nice ride!
I got a chance to take one for a little bitty small test drive and I was very impressed with what I saw.
I love that color too.

Welcome!

That is my SRT-4. I still have it because I have to take my stereo out then I will deliver it to the dealer. It was a great car but I missed the muscle from my Cobra. Nothing quite like an american v8.

Does anyone know where is the best place to buy parts for the Grand Prix? I want to upgrade my stereo to the Nav System but cannot find any place on the net to order it. Also looking for a cover.

The new GXPs are sick! devilgrin The only thing I don't like about them are the interiors. I think Pontiac did a better job on the 97 - 03 interiors (flip-out cupholders, etc.)

For the stereo, try crutchfield.com

For the rest, pfyc.com

I want to upgrade to the Pontiac Nav system. Crutchfield doesnt carry that. I am trying to find a website that deals with Pontiac Parts.

Thanks though.

I'll be curious to know what you found out. My car is outfitted the same, and I have been unable to find anything unless I go back to the dealer and have them do an install, which, I might add, I'd rather let a dentist do. Not that the dealership sux, it's just that they don't do much electrical work anymore and I'd rather do it myself.

We just bought an 06 GXP. Blue would have also been our color of choice. I was immedialty caught by the stealth gray and I do not care for gray cars. We had to get a car brought in out of state with the features we wanted because all the Stealth Gray in the area had Navigation. I was not willing to pay $1800 more to delete the 6 disc changer that I wanted for a Navigation I would rarely use. Navigation was a NEAT feature, but I think the NEAT would get old quick. After seeing all the colors, I was stuck on Stealth Gray. The Stealth Gray actually appears to be a shade of Blue at the right angle. Awesome Color !!! I can't wait to get the windows tinted.
