    Going to figure out numbers on an 06 tomorrow...must be Impulse Blue, or an 05 in Midnight blue. (same color?)

    Ideas, recommendations, suggestions? :o

    Get the midnight blue. You must, I repeat, must get a manual.

    Enjoy the car. It's freakin amazing.

    I test drove the fuck out of GTOs and drove it all day long at the GM Drive event. It's so much more fun with a manual.

    Yeah, but when I bought my 04 (Feb 05) there were not many M6's left, and I only paid 21K
     
  9. i test drove an auto GTO and it sucked. Then i test drove a manual like 6 months later. :bowdown:

    The A4 is much more fun once you put in a looser converter and reprogram the shifting.

    Im a fan of the Impulse Blue, but the Midnight Blue is pretty good looking.

    How come no Brazen orange?

    A4 for pure speed and drag racing, M6 if you want the road course experience.

    One thing I love about the GTO, even smoking the tires (coming out of my works parking lot) the car is very predictable and easy to drive.

    I agree. Top Gear talked about it - they said it was sloppy and brute force powerful but still easy to handle.

    I love the car.

    Here in America we love our faux BMW kidney bean front ends, and we cherish our brazen/sunburst metallic/rust orange cars :big grin:

    Midnight Blue was only for 2005 GTOs, not 2006s.

    Throwing it in 3rd and flooring it at around 65mph is pure sex.

    The 4 speed mite win if there's no corners, but it will definetly lose when you throw in some bends.

    They need to send the SS over there now the CV8 is getting discontinued.
