    I'm thinking about picking up a 6spd Silver/Black leather with 25k. They're asking $19,9xx so what should I try to get it down to?

    What kinda problems did these have?

    :dunno:

    No, not really.


    OP, 19k is too much for 25k. Take them down to at least 18k.

    I can't find an 05+ anywhere for less than $25 with 20-30k miles :hs:

    I'll be trading in my montero so hopefully after some haggling I only have to get a loan for 15-17k :o

    That is a good price for a GTO.

    You might get them down to ~$18,000 or so. I had a 2005 GTO and it was a great car. To bad it had all the torque management bullshit to go along with it.

    Yeah that's true. I never had mine tuned. I got rid of it with 7500 miles on the clock.

    I agree with you, but I didn't want to start flaming people for sheer stupidity.

    I hear all these crazy stories about getting an 06 for 25k, but I can't seem to find anyone willing to sell at that price

    As lame as this sounds I want to buy from a dealer :)ugh: )

    My truck has some body damage from a hit and run accident and a few other things wrong with it, I don't want to hassle with trying to selling it on my own :o

    Is the 04 a LS1?

    Hold out for the LS2, they dont suffer from the piston slapping issues.

    I bought mine with GM supplier pricing and it was $29,200. I highly doubt anybody got a 2005 for much cheaper than that. The only ones that were extremely cheap were the 04's because they had to force them out the door.

    Neither do the LS1s. I think that problem was fixed prior to the GTO release :naughty:

    The LS1 doesn't suffer from the monstrous heat soak like the LS2 does.

    I'd rather have an LS1 in an 05-06 body style.
