The scooped hood and revised fascia are available as an option package. The G6 GXP 'base' doesn't come standard with those parts. The 6MT should have been available as an option,but GM is not going to spend the money to revise it again.bigbengt67 said:So there's no way to get a modern powertrain without the gawd-aweful bucktooth front end and fake hood scoops? If so, GM has just killed this cars chances to compete with the classy looking foreign competition. It's a damn shame they dropped the manual transmission. It should be offered by default because Pontiac is the "sporty" brand... I predict Saturn Aura sales to increase drastically for 2008.
