My lava red metallic 2012 GT Premium (pics)

I picked up a new 2012 GT Premium a couple weeks ago. It's a 6-speed, with Rapid Spec 400a, Comfort Package, 3.55 gears, 19" wheels and tires, etc. The lava red is great; it looks like straight black unless the sun is right on it, then you see the dark red metallic in it. Here's some pics I've taken over the last week. A few in the driveway, then a bunch in Detroit (some in front of Kobie Solomon's mural at the Russell Industrial Center in Detroit, as well as Michigan Central Station in Detroit. I had the tint done a few days ago.

VERY nice ride. I LOVE black 11+ GT's


:edit:....just to clarify. I realize it's not black, but it looks almost like it......I think it is extremely cool for some reason.

Re: My lava red metallic 2012 GT Premium (pics)

Sweet ride! Did you get the red lava interior? I think that looks ***** hot. I was interested in a lava one they had here in march but it didn't have the options I wanted. When I found my CS in march, I already had my plan in place on what I was going to buy. One thing that scared me is that if anything happens the color will be a pain to match.

Sexy cars though in almost any color offered IMO. Congrats!!! Enjoy that beast!

I got the S-Type. The Atak is a little bit much for my taste, but these were louder than I expected. I originally ordered GT500s, but they got delayed on backordered twice, so I cancelled then. I'm kinda glad now, because I was starting to wonder if they'd be loud enough. These are perfect, and have the exact sound I was looking for. Loud and deep without being shrill and sputtery.

Did you get the axel back or cat back system? I've been debating about these or magnaflow's competition cat back.

Axle backs. I haven't seen any evidence that justified speeding the additional money for catbacks from a performance perspective so far. I may swap out the x-pipe or remove the resonators at a later time, but so far, it's perfect.

Yeah, that's on my short list. I have 3:55s in it now, but might go to 3:73s or 4:10s in the near future as well.

Good to know. With purchasing the axle back, where did you find the cheapest price for them?
