A few cosmetic things and a few ammenities (heated seats, etc). There are also a few tweaks under the hood (cooling system changes) but performance is the same.

options and packages like STL said. The GT/CS wasn't available until 2007. The aux input jack came with the shaker 500 in the 2007 models. The comfort group which is heated seats, auto-dimming, and power pax seat was available as well. The V6 pony package came out in 2006 i believe. 2007 was also the first year for a cloth top for the verts. 2007 had the GT appearance pckage as an option as well (hood scoop, exhaust tips and plenum cover). Different rims were also available too throught the years.

You could only get Sonic Blue in 2005... therefore all other years were inferior.

The bolt pattern on the valve covers changes in 08 (I think).

And I agree with Don. If you didn't get Sonic Blue, you are behind the curve.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong (too lazy to look it up right now!)

In 2005, 3.31 gears were in the automatic, and 3.55's were in the 5-speed. At some point, didn't both transmissions have 3.31's, and 3.55's were an additional option?
