Does anybody have any good suggestions about what to get, and where to get new set of wheels?
Pretty sure I want to go for Chrome..:cool:

Somebody on this forum warned others that not all "8,0" would fit the SKY? What is the bolt pattern? anybody know?

Put down a deposit at a dealership in VA, 8/10/06
Chili Pepper Red
Tan leather/top
manual
LSD
Monsoon upgrade
Splash guards

Hope to pick it up on my arrival in December. Hope the GM Santa will arrive early this winter :)
Guess I'm the first norwegian to buy the SKY :thumbs:

For those wanting to know the price for a Opel GT (Redline in US) delivered in Norway, the prize is $83.189...beat that!:banghead:

What a huge price: 520,000 NOK (83k$)!:eek:

Norwegians should buy in Germany:

German price € 29,990 incl. 16% VAT
for export > € 25,190 without VAT
add 24% VAT in Norway > € 31,240 or US$ 39,860

Add some $$ for shipping or buy for example in Hamburg and have a nice ride to Norway. :thumbs:

What do you mean? :confused:
Price in Sweden is 299,000 SEK > US$ 41,470 listed on Opel.com

>>> http://www.opelsverige.com/content_data/GME/019/SE/se/GBPSE/microsite/gt/GT.pdf

That's $ 3,000 more than in Germany but they have 25% VAT in Sweden instead of 16% in Germany.
Not such a difference in importing from Germany, only ~ $ 1,300 compared with $ 43,300 when importing to Norway.

Or is there a special (anti) roadster tax in Norway which doubles the price?

a wheel 8.5'' wide with a +40mm offset will fit , I have done this on a lowered
Solstice..........the lowering narrows the track width somewhat.

Taxes in Norway!

Taxes in Norway can't be compared to Sweden. The taxes on cars and gas is outrageous here... The politicians are screwing us :mad:
The prize we pay for being filthy rich! :rolleyes:
My dad works at a Opel dealership and the prize is confirmed to be (around)530.000 NOK

I know the import taxes on cars from Germany as well after buying several cars directly from Hamburg over the years

Thanks so much for the information everybody on the bolt pattern :cheers:

Can't read that norwegian but text is similar in all the different European Opel Infos; they vary the price only.

I think that Euro pricing actually is no problem for you because you ordered in Virginia. Or will you take that car home to Norway later?

Car stays behind for now

Since I'm buying the one with 177 instead of the 260 horsepower it will be cheaper to import. Less horsepower, less the tax.
Going to enjoy my stay with the car in DC and Maryland, and then decide on what to do with it!
I will for sure take a trip down to Reperbahn and ride with you on the autobahn :thumbs:
And offcourse see a Rammstein show :cheers:

You might want to get the cast chrome ones from Saturn. Look at the online accessories photo on saturn.com or the photos of the wheels on my Sky. I posted photos 8/7/06 under title "The way I want it".
