I have owned a 97 grand prix GTP, 2 grand prix GXPs and now a 2013 taurus SHO. I will say I loved the GXP's and really wanted to jump to a g8 gt or GXP. Really hard to find one with low mileage and decent price though. I found my SHO with 44k miles on it for a little over 15k. When I got into it I knew right away it had to be mine. My wife and I both loved it given all the options and size. Firstly I'm 6'8" tall so most cars are a no go. Second I have 2 kids so with my seat all the way back both kids have plenty of room. This car was babied by the previous owner and I havent found a single flaw. Well the only issue I found is the radio will randomly scan channels multiple times a trip out of nowhere but that's minor. This car feels like a totally different league than the GXP and its plenty fast stock. I will be doing performance mods and being an audiophile at heart I will strip all the speakers out for quality component speakers and likely a sub or two. I'm tempted to custom mount 2 8 inch Memphis mojo subs in the rear deck since there is only 1 speaker in the center. Any recommendations are welcome and look forward to reading more posts from everyone here.
