I have liked the GTO's since they came out, but I had already bought an 04 RX-8, and at the time my local dealer was asking $8000 over sticker. Well, I sold my RX-8 on Monday the 6th, and picked up my GTO on saturday. I was watching an add in the paper and it kept dropping, plus my GM card gave me $2000 toward the purchase if I did it before Jan 3. This got me in my NEW GTO for $5 more than I sold my Mazda for. I am very happy. It is a red on black A4. I look forward to spending a lot of time here on the forum.

The GM card is a credit card(MasterCard) You can apply for it just like any other card and you earn %5 on everything you buy toward a new GM car.

Hey Shawn, congrats (I just picked up a blue 6spd myself a few days ago) Tell me how the torque compares between the RX-8 & your new Goat :D My neighbor has an '03 RX-8 & he's been avoiding me since I cruised by in my GTO ;)

I had six RX7s over the years. They were more fun to drive than any Fbody of that era. I didn't try the current one because the incentives were just too good on the GTO so I went for the GTO. I wouldn't knock any RX7.

Thanks guys that was a great welcome to the board.
Somebody asked about the price, I ended up out the door for $20,995. The dealership had the car discounted to $22,995 and then I got my $2000 Gm Card bonus. The GM Card is just a mastercard, I don't know why the sent me the offer, they called it a Top Off Bonus.
As far as the RX-8, it was a blast to drive in the upper RPM's but it had no power compared to the GTO. I had a 97 C5 a year and a half before I got the RX-8, I need a four seater, so the GTO is the perfect car for me. My Vette had a head and cam package headers ls6 intake and 3.42 gears with a Yank stealth convertor. It ran 10.3 in the 1000 ft, I never got it to a full 1/4 track. If you do a search on Corvette forum for Shawn84&92, it is in my old signature.
I am located in Alma, Arkansas, and bought the car in Siloam Springs.
I look forward to doing some mods to the GTO in the future, I love driving this car!!!!
