OH 555 Triple Nickel - Pontiac G8 GT (part 2)

Another short clip of OH 555 just north of the 78 junction with me leading, heading north. Very fun road, posted speed limit is 55 and is usually plenty through the twisties. Watch out for animals, kids, dirbikes/ATVs, amish buggies, and local traffic (we saw all of the above on some parts). Taken with a kodak Zi8 (EIS off, vol @ 50%) + wide angle lense mounted to the sunroof (panavise 809 with extension makes it a bit more jittery) + external sony condenser mic placed near the boot.

G8 Designs Aftermarket Stereo Installation Kit for the Pontiac G8 - Demo Video
HOW DO I ORDER THIS KIT? READ THIS FIRST: The following FAQ answers the most frequently asked questions about the G8 Designs aftermarket stereo setup. This is the best place to start, if you are shopping for a way to replace the stock G8 or Holden stereo... Our FACEBOOK page is the main source of the latest information on our products. You DO NOT need a Facebook account to visit the page, but we do recommend one so you can interact with us, get the latest news and posts on our products, and get our many informative articles, tech tips, and get your questions answered. www.facebook.com/g8designs WHAT WE ARE SELLING: G8 Designs sells the double-din installation kit that allows you to eliminate the very outdated (and problematic) factory (OEM) Blaupunkt stereo in your Pontiac G8 or Holden-based vehicle. Because the AC controls are integrated into the factory stereo, you must have a device to control the AC after the factory stereo is removed. That's why our kit is designed around the Folcik touchscreen AC controller. To make the installation easy, we provide you with detailed, full color visual instructions that show you step by step how to do the install, and illustrate the wiring and connections with full color photos and graphics. DO I GET A STEREO WITH THIS TOO? NOTE: We do NOT sell the stereos, accessories, or other peripherals. There are literally HUNDREDS of stereos and compatible accessories on the market, with prices ranging from $200 to $1500, so you will want to pick the stereo and accessories that fit your needs and budget. We ONLY sell the install kit and the Folcik AC controller, and you add your own stereo and peripheral accessories. We are also adding other G8-oriented products to our lineup, so be sure you LIKE this page, and stay tuned to this page for the latest updates and info. WHAT COMES WITH THE INSTALL KIT? Our kit comes with our custom aluminum laser-cut mounting bracket, our custom plastic fascia, the Folcik touchscreen AC controller, the mounting system for the AC controller, and all of the hardware, wiring harness (labeled for easy connections), and peripheral connectors you will need. HOW HARD IS THIS TO INSTALL? You also get our incredible instruction set in PDF format, which make the kit EASY to install, thanks to lots of full color photos and graphics that take you step by step through the entire install, and which give you lots of technical tips that you'd have to spend hours figuring out otherwise. We've done all the "figuring out" for you. You can easily do this installation in an afternoon with simple hand tools (Phillips screwdriver, cutters, and wire stripper/crimper). WILL THIS RUIN MY CAR'S WIRING? No, our kit is plug and play. You don't have to butcher your original equipment wiring to do the installation. You can easily put your old system back in if you ever decide to sell your car, or to maintain the originality of the car. I HAVE THE BASE MODEL WITH BASIC STEREO. No worries, our AC controller is menu-selectable to work with the basic non-climate controlled AC system as well as the dual climate control version. You can also select Pontiac, Holden, or car silhouette logos for startup, and Fahrenheit or Celsius temp readings with a menu selection. HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST? That's the question we get the most. Read on, and we'll lay it all out for you: All prices in US dollars. Our complete kit with Folcik AC controller is $650 delivered anywhere in the US. Then, simply choose the head unit of your choice, any accessories or peripherals you want to go with it (such as XM tuner, steering wheel control module, parking brake bypass relay, smartphone adapter, GPS module, etc.) and you can "update your G8" with the latest double-din technology and improved sound quality! WHAT ABOUT STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS? We've found that these cars work best with the Axxess ASWC-1 steering wheel control module, available from many US Ebay sellers for under $50. We have a section in our instructions that illustrates the easy setup of this module. See the Axxess website for further details at www.axxessinterfaces.com. HOW MUCH TO SHIP TO AUSTRALIA (or other countries overseas): We ship many of our kits to our Aussie mates down under, and kits to Canada, the Middle East, and the UK! Overseas customers should contact our email address, G8DESIGNSFL@gmail.com, let us know where you are, and we'll get right back to you with full details. Yes, this kit works with ALL Holden-based vehicles all over the world. HOW DO I PLACE AN ORDER? Email us identifying your geographic location at G8DESIGNSFL@gmail.com. Stay tuned to your email for a fairly quick response, and we'll get your order started. HOW DO I PAY? We will send you a payment request through PayPal, which is an email with a link to click, then pay securely through their site with any payment method you like. No PayPal account is required. Don't be "stuck with stock"! Let G8 Designs help you update your G8 or Holden!

THIS IS LIKE #1 or #2 ON MY TOP 3 LIST OF CARS I WANT!! I was on my way back from a job interview in Dallas, and as I came through Grapevine, I deceided to stop by my favorite GM dealer and see what they had in stock, and this white beauty was sitting front and center, and it was unlocked too.

If only there was some way to take one home for a weekend to see what its like, and then have no pressure to buy it once I have to take it back!!! =)
