    Trading in the WS6.

    Wats up guys. i am getting ready to sell my WS6 and get an 06 gto. I drove it the opther day and absolutley loved it. Its blazen orange with the appearnace package and 6-speed. Did you anyone else go from a trans am to gto? If so are happy with it?

    I went from an 02 SS A4 (all SLP options) to an 05 M6 GTO. I'm pretty happy with the decision.

    After 3 years the Camaro wasn't aging too well. It had bad piston slap, a transmission that was hit-or-miss on the downshift, and had rear subframe issues (weird rubbing noises on hard launches).

    I can't say I miss it too much. The GTO takes the Camaro on straight line acceleration, comfort, interior, and build quality. The Camaro (Bilstein Suspension) outhandles the GTO though. The GTO is about 2-3mph slower running thru some of the turns in the "test-tracks" I frequent. The GTO has better steering feedback than the Camaro but its body-roll and thin tires limit its potential while cornering.

    Nice color choice BTW.

    About 2 months ago I sold my '00 WS6 for an '04 GTO. Both are 6-speeds. Although I loved and still do love the WS6, I was ready for a change. The GTO has not let me down. Plus it is 4 years newer and a lot less miles. The red interior gets me everytime I get in it.
    Do it! Do it!
    Good luck.

    The GTO is a great car. There comfortable to drive and will haul ass. My buddy is planning a buildup on his new 06.......should be interesting.
