    Sweeeeeet bro. You're gonna love it more and more each passing day. Just be careful with it...that color attracts 5-0 like no ones business. Any plans for mods yet?

    I think first will be all the bolt ons... then we will see, cause I am thinking about using the GTO as my DD and putting a 408 Stroker in my WS-6. Definitely headers and exhaust first though. The car is VERY clean. Only 12K on the clock and I am paying 19,500$ for it. I cant wait to pick it up.

    I may keep it stock. I have a WS6 that is VERY loud already. The goat is gonna be the DD. I want to do a few things to it though.

    that is a hell of a deal. I picked up my 04 3 years ago for $24,000 with 13,000 miles on it.....i have just over 60,000 on it now and I still smile every time I get in it.
    as soon as I get my computer fixed (gotta love viruses), I'll be posting updated picks of the full wide body and new paint job

    I saw pics in another thread. You can be sure no one else has one like yours. What have you done to your motor?

    I test drove an 05 when they came out and LOVED it. Made the mistake of buying a charger RT instead cause it was slightly cheaper. That thing was a turd (transmission leak after 20k miles) so I sold it and have been wanting a GTO ever since. I was looking for a Brazen Orange car but once I saw the Spice Red in person I had to have it. Epecially for the price. Most of them are still selling for 23-25 with more miles than the one I found. Thats why I dont buy from dealerships anymore. I promised my wife I wont put much $$ into modding it but we know how that goes...

    Damn. I want to put a 408 stroker in my WS6 so I dont know if I will mod the GTO too much. They are pretty fast as it is, and I dont want to ruin the gas mileage. I am tired of getting 13 MPG around town in the bird

    mine is an a4 so you should get better mpg, when I got it was averaging 16mpg, now I'm averaging 20

    +the weght reduction, yeah you should knock quite a bit off your time. I was 13.5 stock consistently. When I got the cam and stall I couldn't get traction so I said F#@% it and I bought 305/35/18 Nitto DRs for the back. Now I hook up good. I gained about 3 tenths of a second.

    How do the LS2 M6 run from the factory? (I can drive) What do you think it will run?

    I'd say mid 13's the a4 is actually about a half second quicker than the m6, even with a good driver

    You mean the other way around...the M6 is about a half second quicker than the A4.
