Shopping for a 2005-2007 LGT
Yes I'm new, no I didn't search.

Recently totaled my car. getting 11k Looking for an LGT 2005-2007 Preferably auto , but I'd think about a manual too Not planning to do much more than maybe intake, exhaust, tune Just need it for a peppy 4door Daily driver, awd > fwd lol other than the 100,000 timing belt change, what sort of problems should I look out for?

at that price range you'd be hard pressed to find a 07

most likely 05, lucky if you get 06

rest...well do your search...

Unless if you live in Texas. I found my 05 for $6500 and one locally recently sold for $7500 I think.

We were over the 100,000 mark though.

Only real difference from the 05-06 to the 07 that I remember reading (I have been looking for a while for a second car) was that the 07 has folding rest seats and the 05-06 doesn't.n
I just like that BL body style with those head/tail lights and grille

Thanks guys.
Just started looking, mostly 05's at any price is what im finding. A few fairly local around 10-12k
A clean looking white 05 130k mi. For $9k ...500 miles a way

Also, my laptop got killed in the wreck so im doing all this on my phone. So sorry for
Spelling and stuff. Haha

theres also the headlights, fog light trims, clutch, SI drive, cluster and some more

Well im only getting 11k but im willing to pay upto 15k if that's what it takes.

I'd be on the hunt for a 07 LGT SpecB

but that's like almost double the price... around 20k

Also, when you're looking at one, check the oil. Sometimes that can be a telling sign regarding how well the car has been maintained. If it's low or black, walk away.

yeah, a lot harder to find but would be nice.

those are only 6spd right?

Drift Motion 12-20-2012 06:14 PM

yup totally worth it IMO...

i have had maunal trans for my DD for the last 8 years, really leaning towards an Auto-tragic.

some came with the paddle shifters didnt they?

Buy my wagon. 05 5EAT with 70xxx miles. Well maintained with records, stage 2 with cobb downpipe and sti up pipe, transmission cooler / thermostat, custom e-tune from Cryo.

I'm only half serious about selling it and you'd have to fly to VA and drive back or have it shipped, but if I had a buyer I would consider selling it off to go on the hunt for a 5MT wagon.

RooTBeeR 12-20-2012 07:11 PM

what's this "5EAT" i keep seeing mentioned?

RooTBeeR 12-20-2012 07:12 PM

also, got my laptop working :lol:

had to turn it into a desktop tower though.

BarManBean 12-20-2012 07:21 PM

5EAT = Automatic Transmission
