    My new GTO

    Just got my GTO the other day. Totally stock except for the smoked tail lights, side markers, fog lights, and head lights. (Not in the picture). I'm planning on exhaust, cam, and tune in the future. The pics are bad but I'll get some better pics in the future.

    Cool thanks guys. What is CGM? I have a feeling you're talking about the color. The place I bought it from had it listed as champagne. Hahah, obviously not. I got it with only 34,500 original miles no major defects for $15,100.

    That's why my stockers are only used for the winter months.

    Any pointers as to what kind? I really like black wheels. Pics would help but not necessary.

    AZA, Stern, BMW M3 CSL wheels seem to be the most popular with GTOs. CCWs too, but they are way $$$$.

    Save the money on the rims and spend it on suspension parts!!! Who cares about the look of the rims make that thing handle like it should. Plus doing this will help you in your rim and tire size choice later down the road.

    The only two suspension parts ive seen so far in looking are some braces for the IRS and springs. Then I guess the IRS cover/mount. Anything in particular you have used and can recommend?

    Shocks,springs,poly bushings. Look up pedders,lovells,monroe and kings. that will start you off on your search. The car will feel like a whole new beast.

    I'm thinking about smoking the sidemarkers on mine and going with 06 tails.

    Really improves the looks in my opinion. I used VHT "Nite Shades" from my local parts store. Front took about three hours not including drying time. Rear about an hour.
