Should Price is Right trade in his RSX-S for a GTO?

Discussion in 'OT Driven' started by TheAntiEggroll, Jan 23, 2006.

  1. His car only has 9k miles on it and he paid for it in cash but I made him test drive the GTO and now hes in love. :mamoru:

    they're both good cars, but RWD and V8 is just much better than FWD and I4.
     
  3. :werd: How are the GTOs retaining their value in the world of GMs though? :hs:

    make him get the GTO.

    I did have a tough decision, because i do like RSX's, but you would be much happier with a RWD v8, like already stated.

    hard to tell because of he switch in engines from 04 to 05, but I wouldn't worry about it, anyway. All this talk about "holding value" is mostly nonsense anyway unless you trade in your car every couple of years. You're paying under $30k, it's worth it.
     
  7. Well hed go from owning the car free and clear to financing and making a monthly payment (albiet a small one) :o

    But the GTO gets less gas mileage and I'm more likely to get ticket's and all that jazz :noes:
     
  9. You can outrun the cops in the GTO :bowdown:

    GTO gets decent gas milage, and the cops don't even look at it.

    I can get you a turbo kit for a GREAT price.......

    The only work you'd have to do to the car would be a turbo...no engine work other than what comes with the turbo kit....


    and you would have 430RWHP :eek3:

    I wouldnt let him keep it bland.

    It'd go from the dealership, to my house, where we'd put wheels on. Then we'd go over to the exhaust shop

    I read online that the 04 GTO runs a 13.62 while the 05 GTO runs a 13.3 is this true? If so what was changed?

    Well, naturally if I'm going like 30mph over the limit they're gonna look. That's what I'm talking about ;)
