well I'm on vacation here in Alberta, and I have been looking in the Auto Trader....an 04 GTO with 46K caught my eye, so I called the dealer and they will only give me $18,000 for my 08 GXP with 34K....I don't think its worth it, my payments is 551 a month and the gto will be 630-700 a month for a 5year old car.

What kind of a car deal is that...an 04 GTO for 600+ a month...they are worth like 14-19K...that's a bad deal all around.

the 04 gto is not an upgrade in comparison to your car, I had an 04 gto/6 speed before i purchased my monte. I like the monte alot more. the gto has it own set of issues especially tire wear allignment problems and massive wheel hop.

Dude that's not a deal! Don't even think of it. If by chance you are serious about a GTO get the LS2. And don't part with the GXP, you'll need a winter car for sure. Good luck!

04 is the ls1 no hood scoops and the exhaust exits on one side. 05-06 is the ls2 and has the dual hood scoops and the dual exhaust exiting on both sides of the car. performance is pretty similar though. mostly appearance and a small horse power increase.

The '05+ has a higher compression 6.0L LS2 vs. the 5.7L LS1. The '04 has 350HP and 365 ft-lbs torque, the '05+ has 400hp and 400 ft lbs torque. Should perform a lot better then the '04.

I drove both before I decided on my Impala the 05-06 is the way to go but not for that price!!!

when i fisrt got my GXP, i took it to the track that next week (to break it in ah.. ha..) and there was an all stock 04 gto running 14.28's @ 100 mph. i rember that day well, cause i was hitting 14.0's with a few 13.9's @ 99 mph. We were both getting 2.0 60 ft times. Alot of people were checking out my car and were surprised to see that it had a V8 and a few people thought that i put the engine in there. Your car is a better all purpose car, plus its cheaper. Use the money that you'll be saving for some mods.
