That is actually only available for the 2004 GTO, the 2005 and 2006 are different.

They should be releasing the 05/06 stuff soon though,

you probably wont want to to hear this but anyone here will tell you, with just turning 17, spend some time with the car first. Before doing any mods.

Trust us.

Wowza, if you're only 17, I bet your insurance company LOVES to see you coming through the doors with a check each month.
Good Luck with the new GTO. I agree with the others though. This probably won't be like any car you've driven before. I'd recommend leaving the traction control on for the first few days/weeks and not driving on wet/snowy pavement until you see how the car reacts. This car requires a driver, not just a warm body in the front seat.
There are many mods available out there. The 2005-2006 tuners are beginning to arrive at HP dealers/tuners now (finally). Just take your time and enjoy what the car has to offer. After all, it's better to have a car that you can drive than one sitting in a junk yard because you didn't take the time to get to know the vehicle and how it handles/drives.

we are not telling you not to enjoy the car, because we WANT you to use it for whatever reason you chose. BUT, we want to see you enjoy it for the length of the loan and then some.

Yeah insurance is high on my Lexus too haha but I don't pay it so I don't care. Also I'm not looking to mod it right now because I don't have any money right now I'm dead broke plus I don't work but I was just wondering about the mods and stuff, plus I can keep my GTO bone stock and kick anybodys ass at school especially them cool ricer civics(cool? ha gotta love them funny ricers who drop more on mods then how much they paid for the car itself). EDIT: Oh also don't worry my Uncle was a drag racer got invited into IHRA but the wife(my aunt) was scared for his life so he had to sell his cars and stuff and quit i'll have him make me an expert in no time and get the feel of the car.

IDK anything about my 2000 Lexus RX300 AWD I could care less about it. I can get pics of that if you'd like also. I also have a 2006 Buick Rendezvous well it's not mine it's my grand parents but they don't drive it. It just sits in the garage so I drive it if I want to have like 5+ people in the car but the system sucks in that car stock... Piece of S&!*.
