Hello everyone. I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Matt, and I just purchased a 2013 Regal GS. So far I love it. Went for all the options, and got a great deal as I bought it on Dec 31st and am GMS (Dad is retired from GM)...

I thought about the '14, but the changes weren't enough to justify the extra $$ for me anyway.

I also own a Pontiac G8 GT, mildly modded. It is great, but I let the wife use it to keep the miles off of it. I plan to keep it for a while. They seem to be holding their value pretty well, as there weren't too many made.

I grew up a GM nut, obviously, and my Dad had a Turbo Regal when I was a kid. Man that thing flew! He is a major gear head and it rubbed off on me.

I have a little familiarity with the 2.0 in the GS, as Dad has an HHR SS with a GM performance Stage 1 turbo upgrade and other mods. That little thing is scary quick, especially being a stick shift (massive torque steer) and having to handle it with one hand! He also owns a 2003 Z06, supercharged, 594 HP RWHP. Also a very fast and scary ride!

Anyway...I am rambling. I just wanted to say hello, and I look forward to chatting with fellow Regal owners!

Thank you! I haven't seen another GS around here either...yet. But I am sure I will. After all, Indiana is in the heart of GM country. I did get a compliment from a guy about my age (34) that had a regular Regal...pretty cool. I like owning cars that aren't a dime a dozen, kind of like the G8. Seeing one of them is pretty rare too

I got my GS 2 days ago and love it. I pulled into 7-11 last night with my brother and as we were walking to the door this guy in a huge truck was like "Yo, what kind of car is that?"... After telling him it's a Buick he goes" what?! Are you serious? That thing is awesome." one of my main concerns when buying a car is how many are there out there. You buy an A4 and you'll see another one ever 1/2 mile. I've never actually seen a GS on the road here on long Island. And there are lots of cars here. Haha.

Welcome to you from a new non-turbo Regal owner. There's not a lot of Regals around here, either, and of the ones I have seen -- including on most dealer lots -- none have the dark gray/cream color combo of mine. A local dealer had a Turbo model in the sapphire blue, and I thought about it, but it had a black interior, which I don't care for. (No offense to anyone who has a black interior, though; they do look strong and sharp, especially with a white exterior.)

So far I find the car sturdy and nimble, and I'm sure with that GS package you will too.

Welcome to the site Matt, and congrats on the new ride. Sounds like you have a well rounded variety in the family, and I think you will really enjoy your GS.
