Hey guys....well finally got the check back from insurance and am now ready to look at purchasing. I really want to get a 3.6l manual cts....but I cant find any near my area. I have to buy something within 250-300 miles of my house. Is the 3.6 tuneable yet?? Anyone have any connections of maybe locating one around here?? My other options would be

Lexus IS 300
Mitsubishi Evo
Subaru STI

Out of these 4 I really want the cts...but if not I will prob get one of those others. Let me know if anyone knows of anywhere near tarpon springs that has a 3.6l for sale that is a manual. Thanks guys!!! I hope I can be back on these forums soon and not on the lexus ones :(

I actually pretty much kept all exterior parts. Since the CTS is still in my running for my next car..(if I find one):worship: :worship:

So everything is still currently sitting in my garage. I still have the rear skirts and all but if i do get another cts...its def gettin installed. ughhh I really hope I find a 3.6l. Or else i have a feeling i will be driving the IS 300.

Im curious too. My insurance company said that mine was worth 17k. And its an 04 3.6 automatic with every option. Didnt sound right. KBB retail is 24 and i figure trade-in is would be something like 18-19.

Guys dont let the insurance company bend you over. I got 25k for my out of warranty 03 after my wreck last year. I had everything except nav.

Go out and find a couple equivelent models at a car dealership and tell them thats what it costs to replace.

THe insurance company gave me $19,400 for the car. IT was 03 with about 60,000 miles onh it. I really want to get a 04 badly instead of another car.

Nick has the 3.6l able to be tuned now??

03cts YEa I dont want the 2.8;l. Def the 3.6l but HAS TO BE manual. :thumbsup: I appreciate you trying to help me out as well!! Muchg appreciation!:worship:

Luv, the blue was nice...but it was auto...so it was a no go for me. Also was located in conn. I think my dad wants me to find something within florida. Thanks for the link tho!! :bouncy:

jonny only signs on once every few days... dont feel ignored, just send him a PM and he'll get it & get back to you the next time he signs on...

...if he doesnt respond to the PM box that appears as soon as he logs in... then... well...

Why do you want a manual transmission? please don't say bc it's more fun to drive either. Well anyway, you'll realize you made a poor decision when you go to sell it. :banghead:

I believe you have to look at 05's with the manual to get the 3.6. I believe the 5 spd auto was the only 04 with the 3.6. The manual box was still the 3.2 or at least till very late in that model year. Might want to check that out.
