Just a follow-up comment from the original writer. The base GTX package can be had on the SE, GT, and GTP models with equipment that another writer stated. My car started life as a GTP, then was sent to SLP to be converted to a GTX when new, then was fitted with the SLP options I listed. Since my original listing, I have added a 3.4" supercharger pulley and a reprogrammed PCM. A G-tech pro gives me consistent 14.8/14.9 second 1/4's. I also fix the window issue and outside thermometer for around $450.

I just saw a GTX, and looked it up- it looks awesome and sounds like it's got a huge engine in there - then I read it does 0-60 in 6.7 seconds and handles no better than the base grand prix. Say it ain't so! Now I read that the windows don't work well either. Please tell me why it's so great again? I'm saving my money for a GTO- At least that will beat my neighbor's old V-6 accord (and almost everything else) off the line.

GTX was merely a small "step up" from the other trim levels, including GTP... Hands down, it looks cooler, could be made to be a few seconds faster, surely, and most importantly: LIMITED EDITION. Not just a "China Zone" decal kit, but to collectors, VERY LIMITED. If you can get your hands on one, do it. To the right person, it's very collectible and worth some money (and obviously a premium above retail).

I custom ordered my white '99 GTP in May of '98 (cloth seats - Leather seats in Chicago just aren't fun). Thanks to the strike at GM, I didn't get it until October. I was a tier-1 supplier at the time, so I got it 4% over dealer cost, and got a nice deal from SLP for the GTX package. Basically, it was an extra $1,500 for 20 HP, but it looked fugginawesome!
I put 90,000 miles on that car before I sold it in 2004, right before the extended warranty ran out. If I had time to fix my own ride, I'd have kept it. Heck, I probably would have added the pulley kit and bought some slicks, while I was at it. I *LOVED* that car!
I got a decent trade-in for it, and bought a used 2001 Acura CL Type-S, which was another fun car. The thing that bugged me most about the Acura was that the GTX had so many more cool, hi-tech gizmos, even though it was 2 years older. It'd be so cool if Acura built a car with a HUD!

I own a 9 GTP/GTX silver in color with 165k on the odometer.
I replaced the old exhaust with duel flowmaster super fourties and took the cracked 17" SLP wheels off and replaced with 17" Liquid metal racing wheels.
The differential broke about 12k miles ago and in turn tore up the trans. I replaced it with a used one with 100k on it.
This car is a great daily driver with the extra sporty blast if desired. The black leather interior is still in excellent condition, and the upgraded sound system rocks.
Unfortunately I had to move and ended up on a rutted muddy road, I have to leave my car in a local church parking lot over night.
