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eliminate the very outdated (and problematic) factory (OEM) Blaupunkt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

*For all those who keep asking, the rims are ADV.1 exclusives
This 800HP LOMA Corvette made me temporarily deaf when I stood behind it at
Hunt Valley horsepower. I've heard a lot
of loud revs in my day, but none of them ever damaged my hearing as bad as
Pontiac G8 GT with QTP electric cutouts
Dad testing out the QTP's so I can hear. He isn't used to the bump shift,
in case you were wondering what was with the second to third instashift
back down to second.
Cars accelerating out of my driveway - July 1, 2012
As the title indicates, this is a quick video of two of the three cars that
graced my driveway with their presence on July 1st. Unfortunately, I didn't
get any shots of my friend's Pontiac G8 GXP in my driveway that morning,
but I did film my friend's G8 GT and my other friend's 1997 Miata leaving a
bit of sound on their way out...
Pontiac G8 GT - Cruising MPG
Another MPG test on my G8. This time I have cruise control set at 64mph.
Jumps between 4 and 8cyl which you can also hear the difference on my solo
axleback. Still playing around with the J-pipe to reduce the 4cyl drone.
2008 Dodge Charger R/T vs. 2008 Pontiac G8 GT | Edmunds.com
Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf
Cars like the new 2008 Pontiac G8 GT and 2008 Dodge Charger R/T were once
supposed to be every American's birthright. Brawny, V8-powered, relatively
affordable rear-drive cruisers that can blow through a couple of big
Western states in an afternoon at 90 mph - their drivers staring at the
horizon through Ray-Bans, steering with one hand and smoking a Pall Mall
with the other.
Multiple Pontiac G8s LOUD sounds
More footage taken on the way to the July 2012 Caffeine and Octane car
show, this time filmed from the passenger seat of my friend's modified G8
GT, with several other G8s (and a Cadillac Escalade and Chevrolet
Silverado) along for the ride...
Brutal sounds from these brutal machines! Enjoy!
2009 Pontiac G8 GT Review
Simple review of my G8. I don't mean to say ummm so often but I don't
review cars for a living! Thanks for watching.
