It's a nice car just 650lbs heavier than the ss/tc for what it is not bad. The tune isn't out yet for the 2012 GS yet a cpl guys are close but they have only been on the lots for a months or so. The engine is a non flex fuel 3 trims are flex fuel this year two are not. Vince's car is a 2011 flex fuel cxl Turbo model that had only 220hp before tuning to the crank 268 to the wheel after tuning. The exhaust and cats, intercooler are very restrictive on the non GS models. The GS high output is the same engine with a new 3'' exhaust and boost raised 5 lbs over the 4 other trim models. Also the highest ever tested SAE Hp per liter engine ever tested stock form 135 hp per litre. Once the Gs is tuned should be close to 300 + hp Crank anyway as the cxl is with more restriction.And the Gs already has the boost raised kind of like a stage 1 tune. The block is a stronger sand casted not foam casted like the LNF and has a few other improvements also. The buick Pistons are the same as the LNF and the turbo is the same BW but has a exhaust manifold that exits on the side with a cpl bends in it. With some modding the turbo upgrades should work also on it. A really nice car worth 35,300 before any extras maybe? would make a nice DD car with not too bad performance the biggest complaints on the Regal Forum are the poor 0-60 time 6.7 secs and that it did not get all wheel drive like the Insignia European version does which would make it heavier and even slower. It is a looker though way better than the non GS models and loaded up is a nice ride!

I love what Buick has been doing as of late. I don't think it is your grandpa's car company anymore! To bad I'm not in the market for a car.

Yes LILGTO Buick is coming around! The Regal and Regal GS are a Opel Insignia rebadged basicly, I hope there is talk Buick may follow suit and bring the Opel Astra hatch also with 280 hp kind of funny how the ecotec 2.0 are all basicly staying the same they are just upping the boost some and opening the exhaust but pretty cool. Seems like Europe gets all the nice designs and hp first. The ecotec 2.0 is also going in Cadillac ATS and 2013 Malibu soon.
The twin turbo V-6 version is 320 hp of the Astra and Cadillac ATS may have that engine option also!
