    The 06 GTO was a great car I love the Ls2.

    Oh I am not sold on DI at all. Not one bit. Between carbon build ups and HPFP going at 80-120k miles it's kinda crappy. MPG is one thing but having a high pressure pump go is not cheap nor is the head cleaning.

    All DI engines will eventually have the same issue, we're hearing about it with foreign enthusiast cars because a) people actually bother to maintain them and talk about them on the internet and b) they use new technology first. Don't be shocked when C7 Corvette owners talk about a class action lawsuit in 2018.

    Anyway seeing as I'm new to the thread... I drive an 06 GTO once or twice a week. It sounds nice and goes pretty fast. Pics: http://imgur.com/a/op7Hf

    Thanks!

    Could not be more satisfied. For a car that is coming up on 10 years old this thing is solid as a rock. No rattles or issues anywhere.

    This engine (same one found in the R8) suffers from carbon buildup, so as long as you get it cleaned out every 30,000 miles it spins like a top. I just got it done last month for $800 and it revs up to 8,250 rpm faster than ever.

    Bought my dream car back in 2011 and still smile every time I get in. 2007 Audi RS4, subtle style differences from A4 and S4, but just enough that car guys appreciate it and normal people ask me what it is.

    [MENTION=9879]Brent k[/MENTION] Yeah, that's why I prefer the Trans Ams to the Camaros. Bit nicer all around, and most of em have aged a bit better as time's passed.

    I don't know if agree on the handling though. Sure, the suspension is just not up to snuff no matter what you do to it, but they've got a good weight balance to them. The sliding feels more like a pivot than fishtail, and it makes the traffic circles around here way more fun.

    My daily driver, and only car really, is a 98 Chevy Camaro in Emerald Green. Base model V6, mostly because my insurance agent provided me with some very unkind words when I mentioned I was considering the V8. F-Bodies are a lot of fun, and remarkably cheap both to buy and repair. If you're not necessarily looking for something like a classic muscle car, I'd happily recommend them to the Dappered community.

    Especially a Pontiac Trans Am. Those are...just really amazing vehicles.
    Had a 2002 SS SLP package. 6spd, T tops of course. Did 1 7/8th long tubes from pacesetter, Wally fuel pump, straight pipe exhaust, SLP intake, mild cam.

    Fun car ended up selling it for my 02 Z06.

    My gripes with the F body was the handling and build quality. Early 2000's wasn't the best at GM but the Camaro had some cheesy interior parts. Handling was pretty bad but what do you expect from a live axle 10bolt rear.

    I love cars and I absolutely think what you drive is an expansion of your personal style. I've been driving a 2003 Jaguar S-Type for a while, but I'm looking forward to my 2016 Mercedes C-Class being delivered in a month.
    I had an '03 S-Type for a spell. One of the better looking luxury sedans ever made, I think.

    Dog - yes 964 series… 1991 cab.

    The jacket is replica (from Lansky) of a jacket Elvis used to wear. Found it at the Lansky clothier in the Peabody (Memphis). I thought it looked good, found out the history and had to have it.

    Never mind, just saw the picture caption. Still, nice picture!

    Awesome. Back in 2006/2007 when those were out, I dreamed of owning one.

    About $90k, as it was only a 1 year old model when I bought it last year. Had 3,000 miles and the extended 100,000 mile warranty that stays with the car itself.

    Nice! My wife has a Q5 S Line and I'm considering the S5 as my next daily. I think the Audis have very tasteful styling.
