    i have a 6 speed...i don't like autos. I like everything about it basically...only things i don't like are nitpicky shit like no light around the ignition key slot and things like that. I get like 22mpg average and i drive pretty aggressively. Put it this way...I bought it last january, so it's a year later and it still puts a smile on my face everytime i fire it up.

    I love my '05. great car, tons of power. fuck manuals, honestly. unless you want to control the car even more, there is honestly no reason to get a manual for the Goat, although I do find myself wanting to move the shifter in my auto :o. the autos are .1 faster in 0-60 and 1/4 mile. beautiful interiors and all around great cars, go for it! you won't regret it.

    mine's a DD. but there are a lot of Goat owners that do racing and have no problems with it besides the horrible wheelhop.

    paging TriShield, he is the GTO guy for all your GTO questions.

    No official racing though. check www.ls2gto.com forums for a ton of info

    yeah I would be racing mine so I was just wondering how it did as a DD as opposed to dumping more power into it and making it a track car

    I guess I would have to drive both an auto / manual to see which I liked better

    although the auto one in the area is newer, less miles, and only 1k more than the manual

    No light around the ignition key slot? I'm 99% sure they have a green light around the ignition.

    is there a reason to get a pontiac other than having a really fast-traveling pile of garbage?
