    Is this a real 2006?

    Need some help from the experts. I bought this 2006 GTO and from everything I read it is suppose to have black out taillights and interior door lock switches. Mine has neither. Is this true? The data plate reads:

    Trim = 81I
    Paint = 470G
    Built = Dec 05
    Eng = LS2
    A/C = C60
    Trans = M12
    Susp = FE2
    Axle = GS9

    The VIN is: 6G2VX12U5(6)L545052

    According to this it is a 2006.

    Look on the inside of the truck lid. I am pretty sure there is a list of ALL the options on the car.

    Not sure what you mean by "black out taillights", but the late '05 and all '06 GTO's had the same tail lamp assembly. There was a black area within the lamp...



    vs. the '04 and early '05 GTO lamps that were all red...



    Someone could have swapped the lamps if yours look like the second picture.

    As for the door lock switches...'06 GTO's only had one. Should be in your console behind the window switches and next to the traction control switch, unless someone swapped it for an '04 or '05 that didn't have a switch.



    Also, according to my info...your build date is actually February 16, 2006.

    Thank you for your information. As I stated before my 2006 has the red tails like you show and not the black that should have been put there. Also there is no door lock button next to the traction control one. I had to replace the front parking brake cable so I removed the center console. You would think that if there was a switch there then the plug and wiring should be there. There were none of these. The previous owner did not know anything about this. Curious.....
