how are sales on the 05's doing any predictions
GTOJ said:Here they are good. I would like more to come in at one time, though. We keep selling out of them. Although right now I do have a Cyclone Grey/Black 6 speed available if anyone is looking!!!
Did you buy at Freysinger? They're right up the road from me, I was just there checking out a Phantom Black 2005 M6 with thoughts on upgrading from my 2004 for the extra 50 hp. They had a Midnight Blue A4 there too, and up until yesterday the GM site listed a Cyclone Gray M6.Wing_Nut said:I just bought an 05 Cyclone Gray M6 today. The dealer quickly agreed to invoice and gave me reasonable value on a trade. I've talked to two dealers over the past two weeks and monitored the dealer inventory via the GM website. GTO's are not flying off the lots here in central PA. I felt this was a good time to strike a deal. March is the last month of the first quarter 2005. All dealers will be trying to reach quotas to snare their quarterly incentives from manufacturers. Also, it's still winter here in the snowbelt so showroom traffic is sloooow, especially for rear drive high performance coupes. In May/June the weather will be nicer and more people will be thinking about cars like the GTO.
The car really is a good value. Where else can you get a 400HP coupe with seating for 4 real people anywhere near $32K. I know some knock the styling and I agree that it's a little bland but that's exactly why I like it. It doesn't attract undue attention. It's a muscle car for adults. Glad this forum is around to share info.
Thought you were in the Harrisburg area rather than State College. I checked at Freysinger (Mechanicsburg) today, and they quoted me $739/mo for a 3-year, 15K mile lease with my 2004 as a trade. Um, no thanks.Wing_Nut said:Personally, I'd stick with your 04. You'll take a heavy loss selling it right now. The 04's are being heavily subsidized by GM. That's driving prices down for the private owner. 50HP isn't all that much. I doubt you'd notice it. Save yourself a lot of money and have the 05 hood added to your 04. You could also have the new rotors and calipers added for a lot less than you'll lose on a trade-in.

I just bought my 05 from them last Thurs. I bought my T/A from them when they first opened. Great dealer they worked hard to find my color/transmission combo. Ended up driving about 200 miles to pick it up.. I saw the blue one on the floor it had 45 miles on it.. It was there as of Thurs when I brought mine back to be detailed.... So it is gone now?westell said:Yeah, they sold it last friday i had my new suction/discharge hose assy put in after it got here from australia. it was rubbing on body bushing.
