2012 Buick Regal Turbo Premium I Group with sunroof bought today. Here are the photos.








Already ordered Cocoa all-weather floor mats and trunk liner through accesories.
In addition, I have about $400+ of Polk audio speaker goodness coming from Crutchfield to replace the 5 front speakers in the base system.

I have been a long time GMInsidenews member and have previously owned a 2006 Buick LaCrosse CXS and a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT. I just got a private offer on the G8 GT that I could not refuse which brought me back to Buick in a new Regal. Looking forward to finding out about this great car and what people are doing to them.

That is funny.

Why did I sell? Private party offer of $23,900 for a 3.5 year old car with 32,650 miles on it.

It was a great 3.5 years but not perfect. The amount of equity that I gained versus what I owed would probably not be better even through payoff than this offer.

The logical part of me wants to keep cars a long time. The perfect auto consumer in me wants new sheet metal every few years.

Also, the person that will actually use the G8 car is a 20 year old Army Ranger (son of co-worker) in the 75th Ranger Regiment who has it bad for Pontiac G8 GTs. I am glad to help make someone like him happy while getting a great real world price for my well kept car.

Congrats on your Regal! It looks very sharp and I hope you get many good years with it. Thank you for picking Buick!
