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eliminate the very outdated (and problematic) factory (OEM) Blaupunkt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
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

Pontiac G8 GT LOUD sounds!
Here is a ridiculously loud Pontiac G8 that I was fortunate enough to ride
in on the way to today's (July 1, 2012) Caffeine and Octane car show. This
car features too many upgrades to list: Ported/polished heads, aftermarket
camshaft, Exhaust cutouts, and much
more! I mounted my Cybershot DSC-H70 to the bumper and the results were

When describing the quintessential American sedan, car enthusiasts no-doubt
mention V8 engines and rear-wheel drive. So it is surprising that Pontiac,
General Motor's supposed performance division, hasn't offered that
powertrain combination for years. Classic car fans can now rejoice: the
Pontiac G8 is a thoroughly modern car that harkens back to the
rear-wheel-drive glory days of American sedans.
Having been out of the rear-drive V8 game for a while, Pontiac found
inspiration in Australia where high-power sedans have thrived for decades.
Essentially a re-badged Australian-market sedan, the G8 delivers a
much-needed performance punch for Pontiac, in both V6 and V8 flavors.

Pontiac G8 GT and GXP - Review / Transformation
This is a video review of a Pontiac G8 GT with Dave "DuBob" Richie. He's a
former owner of a modified 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP, which is one of the
nicest Grand Prixs in the country and won 1st place in several club
contests. Dave is an active member on ClubGP and G8 Board. We definitely
had some fun with this one, so I hope you'll enjoy it.
