    Just bought one!

    Hey all, I just bought an 06 orange gto yesterday. I didnt really want one but i saw the orange out on the lot and sure enough, the next day (yesterday) i just bought it! It has to be one of the most comfortable, fast, interesting sports cars ive ever had. Just wanna see if anyone has any cons/pros they wanna share with me. Thanks!

    Thats probably one of the best "didn't want one" impulse buys ever. Congrats and enjoy.

    I LIVE IN THE SOUTHWEST SUBURBS OF CHICAGO THE BEST THING ABOUT HAVING A GTO IN CHICAGO IS THAT NOT THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE THEM AND ALOT OF RICERS THINK THEY'RE STRONG AND TRY TO RACE YOU..... AFTER BEATING A RICER I USUALLY GIVE THEM A 1.00$ OFF COUPON FOR A STROBE LIGHT LISCENSE PLATE COVER

    Worst thing about a GTO is people are asking you all the time " when are going to start modding on it ?' I always say it has 400hp already ...do you ??? ......lol

    maybe you could get me a stack of coupons that i could keep in my glove box - i would hand out 10 a day! There sure are a lot of damn ricers in chicago. But a decent amount of muscle too.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Nitrous not normally considered a bolt on. Nice car to the originator of the thread. Love that orange.

    Not sure who told you that but EVERYONE I know in the market considers the bottle a bolt-on...........

    First time ANYONES ever said that to me in 15 years!!!

    You bolt-on the kit......... How is that not a bolt-on?
    Now putting a convertor is a bolt-in not a bolt-on. Removing the transmission to change the convertor would make me view it as not a quick bolt-on.
    Putting a nos kit in a couple hours would be exactly what we consider a bolt on.

    Thanks for enlighting me on what nitrous is now I know........
    GUESS A POWER ADDER CAN'T BE A BOLT-ON.
    Even though I can bolt it on and use in a couple hours.

    I'll have to start telling my customers that thanks.
