    GTO info

    Hey everyone,

    I recently test drove a GTO and fell in love. I am an avid F-body fan, never owned one but i have driven many and loved them all. anyways i came across a GTO when i was looking for a new car. (rx-8, mustang GT, 350Z, G35) a test drove it and loved it. I was curious to know how many of you guys use this car as a daily driver? and what is typical mileage in a M6? what draw backs do you know now you didnt know before? any info would be great im looking at getting a 05 m6 GTO.

    Thanks

    tim

    I have an 05 M6 and commute to work using local streets. I'm getting about 15-18mpg depending on how bad traffic is. I've gotten 26mpg hwy cruising at 70mph. I recently did an 810mi trip and averaged 23.2mpg doin 85-90mph most of the way.

    Get the Goat. It's a sweet looking ride that has GREAT performance all around. There are faster cars, better looking (in some peoples' opinion) cars, better handling cars, (usually compromised in some other area), and so on. But the thrill of the exhaust, the instant torque, the pleasing ride quality and the overall essence of the car are hard to beat.

    Dont get the GTO.
    Folks will be hollering and waving/thumbs up at you all the time. You gotta clean the nose prints off your windows all the time. Girls showning you their tig ol bitties out on the highway. It's horrible. Get the G35 like suggested above. Then you dont have to worry about all that shit I have to put up with all the time.
    This is my signature. It is mine. Nobody else has one like it.

    I drive mine as a daily driver. Gas mileage isn't great, but having the chance to smoke vette's and stangs at any given time sure feels great!

    The gas mileage isnt bad for a 400hp car, Im gettin 18.5 in the city. My girlfriends Mustang averages about 16, the G35 supposedly gets about the same as a GTO. So why go for less HP and the same if not worse mileage??

    Good tune and you will get very good mileage for a fairly potent car!

    Thumbs up

    I can not tell you about the attention my goat gets, I have people talk to me at the gas stations, ask me to roll the window down at the traffic light to ask about the car. You don't see very many GTO's on the street, mustangs,
    350Z, and G35 are more common. Nothing against those cars, I was considering a Mustang GT or the 350Z and they are great cars as well. But for the power, and the exclusivity, the GTO was the car for me. Anyone who knows a little about cars see the letters GTO, will give you a respecting nod and thumbs up. For those who don't, well ... just let them watch those letters, GTO disappear in a cloud of smoke as you pull away.
