Proud New Owner of a '08 G6 GT

Hey everyone,
I purchased a Dark Steel Gray 2008 G6 GT Sedan on Saturday and am a huge fan! This one has the GXP front and rear bumper covers and side skirts.
I've driven Cadillacs for the past 10 years and received invaluable help at cadillacforums.net. It looks like you are all just as passionate about your G6s and I look forward to contributing to this community!

Welcome. It looks like my GXP but you're rims are cooler. Mind if I ask what kind they are? Also, what kind of engine does this have?

Thanks everyone!
mshinall, Those are factory 18" wheels I see more of these on Auras than G6s, I love them though, simple, aggressive, and easy to clean! Looks like you can pick them up used for around $150/wheel on ebay. Additional pics below...
It has the 3.5L LZ4, with the doggish 4-speed. I really wish they had mated the 6-spd 6T70 to this engine!

Awesome. They kinda look like Camaro wheels. You're right about the 4 speed. My wife has a 07 GT with a 3.5 and 4 speed and it is not as fun to drive as my 6 speed ;-)

A 6-speed mated to the 3.5 V6 will make the car fly compared to the primitive 4-speed.

Yeah, they do look like Camaro wheels, I hadn't made the connection... Now I'm off to research the bolt pattern!
Yeah 6 gears would be great, hell I'd settle for 5.

Camaro B.P.: 5x120mm
2008 G6 B.P.: 5x110mm

Saw a Vert the other day with these. Didn't realize they were stock. I think these would look awesome on my GXP Sedan. You know the solstice also has some nice lookin wheels, kinda like these but more rounded edges.

Those also look like stock 17" Malibu Wheels... which share the same bolt pattern.
