And I have to say I liked it much more this time than when I saw the previous one. We might have found our next car :cool: I may hae to become more active on this forum!!!

Funny thing, the dealer had two, both available to take home.


The catch:

the had $6K of goodies on them, a CAI, Lojack. and a Racing Suspension - they did not have the details of what the suspension package was - I had a feeling this was their equivelent to a dealer markup. Doesn't matter, I'm not ready to take one home.

sorry all, I don't know the colro names of the sky. They had a black, and a light silver, we really liked the light silver, which is funny because we hated that same color on the solstice - very odd. Something about the chrome and angles just worked on the silver! The silver was an auto.

We got to turn on the car to hear the CAI. sounded good! It didn't add much noise compared to our soltice, and I was able to rev it to 4K to check the noise. I don't know how it sounds under load, or over 4K.

That was a fun day. We also sat in a new MX5, uncomfortable seats, more spacious than our MSM, just nothing to squeel about.

Hhhhhmmmm, I wonder, will a Sky be in our future????

It's a $1500.00 upgrade.

Performance Suspension Kit

The performance suspension kit allows the SKY to carve tighter corners with even more precision. Includes front and rear stabilizer bars, bushings and sport-tuned, coil-over Bilstein monotube shocks.

so, their $6K covers lojack, a GM CAI, and a $1500 suspension kit, oh yeah, it also listed floor mats (that must make up the difference :D )

You were at SCC right? I was there this afternoon as well around 4:30 - 5:15pm. Where you there when the couple with the MX5 was looking at it also?

I looked at the "Sky Performance Package" and I cannot see what makes it $6,000.00. Unless they are doubling the prices of the Lojack, suspension and CAI. If someone else knows what the package consists of I would like to know!

Don't forget the floor mats :D

Sounds like that was us! I don't know what SCC is?

We had a 2004 Mazdaspeed MX5 Miata, Velocity Red! and, if I go back, that dealer will hear my complaints about a $6K package that's worth more like $2.5K :D

I was also at the Saturn dealer in Santa Claria on the same day as Rodeo, I was there looking at the same 2cars around 11am on friday. When I drove up behind the cars 4 salesmen came out to look at my car and asked if it was a GXP. It was because of the red painted calipers.

I guess you are not as Observant as you thought :D

I found out that the package does only consist of:

CAI.
The high-end Lojack.
The Saturn Performance Suspension system.
Floor Mats

The High End Lojack is 1300.00 add that to the price for Saturn addons ti comes out to about 3400.00 dollars.

That means the Floor Mats are only $2600.00. I think all of you saying the Floormats are $3800.00 owe this dealership an apology! :nono:

:jester:

When you say $6k is that over the base price of the Sky? or over the base price of the Soltice? The Sky includes many items such as power door locks and windows and OnStar that the Soltice offers as options.

It was $6k over the MSRP sticker price. The accessories were dealer add-ons that only totaled up to $3400.00 dollars

Just talked with my dealer and confirmed that Air Intake is $495.00 same as on the Saturn Site. They faxed me an accessory list and the all of the prices are in range of what they are listed on the Saturn site.
