    We traded in my wife's 2004 GTO for this, I have to say it is really nice. I am impressed with the car so far. It rides smooth, and the engine is torquey and has a good powerband. The only thing I have done so far is a cortex tuner and it is her car so that will prob be all. We got a really good deal on it. The payments are the same as the GTO except for a little bit longer. Heres some pics.

    Thanks guys


    It's like GM took all the little issues from the GTO and fixed all of them and added two doors. The 6 speed auto is awesome and the motor has TONS of low end torque. Guys have been in the 12's with just a handheld and CAI with them. Impressive for a 3900LB sedan. Plus the ride quality is so smooth and nice. Dont get me wrong I do miss my WS6 though.

    Thanks guys. You can't see too well from the pictures but it's actually ignition orange metallic. One of 927 and only made in 08. The rarest color second to stealth blue

    Great looking car. Too bad I can not talk my wife into driving something with more than two doors.

    Nice iom. At first I thought it was liquid red.

    Sure wish I would've got a sunroof. Oh well, next year maybe a webasto unit instead of go fast goodies.
    Hold down the channel change scroll thingy (left side of steering wheel) when starting or setting ignition to run and it brings up engineering mode which gives more info than you could possibly want. Also same with source button reads error codes.

    Sweet. I paid 1500 more for the one with the sunroof and less miles. No brainer. The transmission linkage was loose I found out, I had to fix that today, but other than that I have had no issues with it whatsoever. Installed the Cortex 91 Octane tune and it has been getting 23-25 on the highway MPG

    Best I've gotten was right under 26mpg from Houston to Dallas.

    I've noticed that since I'm only running really short trips to carpool, its been hanging around 15mpg
