Hey Larry, as QSD said it's too late now.... but in my opinion it was a good thing. I did the same thing, bought my '05 last weekend of May, mine had 200 miles on it and I'm sure 75 of them was mine test driving it on several occasions.

Regards
Terry

Was that 18,000 out the door? That is an awesome price. I am looking at a left-over 2006 Conv. GT. Not quite as good of a deal, but it's still pretty good I think.

How do you like the turbo so far? Everyone I have talked to love them - besides the mileage. That's not a huge deal to me, I only live 6 miles from the office, so I can afford a little more gas consumption. I am well used to buying 93 or better octane on my 944, so thats not a big deal to me either.

Thanks,
Matt

One of the BEST things about having a 2005 GT Convertible is the fact that you get 17x7" wheels...not the standard 'skinny' 17x6" wheels that are on all the other GTs no matter if it's convertible or sedan.

2005 GT Convertible was the ONLY time Chrysler gave us 7 inch wide wheels.
The 2005 GT Sedan had the 6 inch wide wheels.

And then in 2006 & 2007 they absolutely did the dumbest thing in the world to the GTs when they put the 15 spoke plastic overlay wheels on it. Convertibles and Sedans.

Sorry but no GT should have a 15 spoke wheel.
GTs of any car brand have always been 5 spoke of some sort.

I agree...

I put some chrome 5 spoke wheels on my 'Vert.

Thanks Terry & guys for all the comparisons on the convertible. That helped me make my decision, Matt.
I just drove back from California. Got a 2006 black GT vert, HO turbo, tan top & leather interior. It had 8,000 babied miles on it; but was in mint condition! Paid $17,500 on e-bay!

Glad to help out, your new vehicle looks great. As I have mentioned on other forums, I haven't seen a black car with a brown top. Looks good....so what mods are you planning for this one?

As you can see by my photo and listed in my signature, I have done a couple of things to mine. Hoping to do more this winter.

Regards
Terry

Terry,
I plan to keep my "life" & the mods simple this time. Maybe some light chrome, and wood dash overlays for that luxury look. I think my wife will like me better that way.
