The V6 GT is an incredible car. Stock it is very fast and if you lower it with coilovers, you can get a car that handles wonderfully, as good or better than much more expensive sports cars. Heated leather seats, sunroof, hatchback, drop in an upgraded stereo and you have a really great car. I have driven the GS and it really lacked power for a car that looks so sporty. Not sure why anyone would settle for a GS if a GT is available. Worth the wait. Not a huge difference in mpg. If mpg is you're think, drive a Prius. I am relatively new to this forum and the GT (mine a 2006), but I could not be happier. Got mine for 4K and with the coilovers and a few other cosmetic restorations, I'm in about 5K. It's now looking and driving like a 40 to 50K car.
