That what I used as my basis it took two days about 5 hours going over all the data to separate, not as easy as it looks . put it out so if someone else like me is looking for a stick they can see what there up against :brentil: just trying to help and give input to the web site:)

Can you clarify your comment?

The data is available in the sticky post in excel format.

What processing did you do to it for the 2+ days that could be added?

Thanks.

print out the data 36 pages then go down the list and find gxp's with manual trans, then mark them and go back and divied the colors up and count sounds easy try it . Please don't beat meup just thought it could help some else down the line. I have been looking for a coupe for 6 months and have only come across two for sale between ebay,cars.com.autotrader ! One black on ebay sold for $21,900 7 owners 2 carfax accidents . One red in new orleans (hurricane car ?) the dealer wants $36,000 4000 miles thats more then new in 2009 . If it easy to find i'll take a yellow ;)

I have the list in excel format, a simple sort on color and transmission yield the data you presented very quickly.

I think someone posted an aireal view of the red coupe from news footage. It looked pretty tweaked if that's the car. Sounds like the dealer is trying to recoup the repairs.

Thanks for the breakdown. For sure, the manual GXP coupes are by far the most popular and hardest to find for sale -- and obviously, they hold their value much better than anything else. There are dozens of autos and base models out there for sale. God forbid you buy a base auto and try to make it into a collector car...

Are these the shots you are referring to above?
