HOW MUCH DOES THIS SETUP COST? HOW DO I ORDER THIS? Read on below for
SAVE $80 off the regular price! Our G8 Designs installation kit is now
$275, and the Folcik AC controller is $375 in our current promotion. Also,
G8 Designs is now a stocking distributor for the Folcik AC controller, so
you only make one purchase now. Total price is $650, and that includes FREE
shipping, which saves you $80 off the regular price for both products. This
update is essential to ditching that dated OEM head unit, which was
designed way back in the early/mid 2000's! It's 2014 now, and the major
manufacturers such as Pioneer, JVC, Kenwood, Alpine, and many others are
putting out some incredible new stereo technology, and now YOU as a G8
owner can take advantage of that!
Once you get our install kit and controller, you simply pick the head unit
of your choice, as well as any peripherals or accessories you may wish to
add (such as an XM Sat tuner, the steering wheel control module, parking
brake bypass (for video in motion), smartphone adapters, or GPS module) and
you can "update your G8" with the latest double-din technology and improved
sound quality! Order TODAY!

ASWC-1 steering wheel control module (to retain the use of your steering
wheel controls), and $60 AUS shipment. (Total price $760 US)
It all depends on whether you want the Axxess or not. If you can source
that in Oz, you'd be set. Or, we can source it here and ship it with our

Secondly, our installation kit is plug in play. The great thing is that you
don't have to butcher your original equipment wiring to get it to work. You

(but why would you sell a G8?!).

installation. At a relaxed pace, it took about an hour, including
application of the non-friction heat resistant compound. Afterwards, took
the car out just to see how it would do from 0-60-0 MPH. Car wouldn't hook
up on the first two launches, then hooked well and stopped great on the 3rd
attempt. Total cost for rotors and pads was about $1000.
Mods include American Racing long tube headers, Magnaflow Exhaust, Rotofab CAI, Powerbond underdrive
pulley, DBA drilled and slotted rotors and Hawk performance pads, throttle
body port & polish and East Texas Muscle Cars custom Dyno tune - 371RWHP and 387RWTQ.
