Sorry about the wreck, but I'm glad your wife is okay. Aside from the driver's door, does the car have any roof structure damage? Hope it works out well. There aren't many baby Blues out there.

Take care and good luck. - Mark

They like to total them. I got hit in left rear quarter panel in my 99 mustang in January. Dad gum Prius took me out at interstate speeds. I believe I got suckered when I traded a2001 mustang for my 07 g6 gt htc.(title for title) Should have knew. Anyway it's for sale. Everything quiting. My husband has even suggested my car, chainsaw And big tree. I give up on figuring it out

one of the reasons that I have wanted my car back so badly is the paint color. I believe that it make my car a very low numbers car.
Specific reasons for this conclusion;
. with the help of Mark ….
we determined that Gm / Pontiac manufactured 2462 GTP retractable hard top convertibles for the 2006 model year (the one and only year of the convertible in the GTP trim.)
. of the 2462GTPs produced for the north American market 247 were equipped the rpo u19 instrument cluster (approximately 10% of the 2462)
. 246 of them were produced for the Canadian market rpo z49 (we don't know what happened to the one car. maybe went to Europe … we don't know.)
. 130 of the 2462 were painted rpo 91u paint code. (described as Dark Polo Green Metallic ) my car is not green and the only other car that I think is comparible is also blue like mine. Arrival blue metatllic.

Genuine GM ACDelco Arrival Blue Metallic Touch Up Paint ...
...
Description This is a Genuine GM ACDelco Arrival Blue Metallic touch up paint application kit for your vehicle with paint code 91U or WA 815K. Abrasive Prep Tip: Use pointed edge to r...………………

the above is supported by documents, internet information and other support information
now at this point I don't know where to go to actually verify that my conclusions have standing and invite any comments that support or disprove them,

I know that I have at least a 1 of 130 car based on the numbers 130 have rpo 91u or wa815k (my car says rpo wa815k)
130 cars were for the North American market how many of these were for the Canadian market?? 130/2462 x 100 = 5 %
5 percent of the cdn production numbers is 12 cars....1of12 sounds good but maybe too good!!!

what do you all think ???

So, I also have an 06 GTP Convertible. How would I go about looking to see if my car is one of the 247 that were equipped with the rpo u19 cluster? I obviously don't have the exceptionally rare paint since mine is black, but i wanted to know if mine was more unique than the already small number of being one of 2462. How/where do I locate the information behind the rpo u19 instrument cluster and the rpo 91u paint code or whatever variation my specific car has?

V
U19 is the instrument cluster that shows up to 240 kph vs up to 140 mile per hour
The temperature gauge is in Celsius and the fuel gauge only shows the international symbols for 1/2 a tank and full tank of fuel.
I have both. One of each. On the back side the USA cluster says for domestic and the Canadian one shows for export.
If you have a relationship with a gm dealer, theN theyshould be able to tell you what RPO codes your car has. You should also have the RPO sticker on the inside of the glove box. Another member on this site have me the numbers produced for each of the codes.
Some of this information i have acquired by doing a ton of reading. the genuine help of others. Car owners and collectors usually want to see people succeed mostly for their genuine
Love for the car.

Gotcha! Well, I'll definitely be giving it a look as soon as I can and see what RPO stuff my car has. I doubt it's anything more interesting than just being one of the only vert gtp's, but still that was nice to learn today :D

Crap Zenish. How come so many rear end collisions? make sure that your insurance company uses correct values depending on what you want to do. Remember that Most of the parts are no longer made, so to use new prices will not give you an accurate repair estimate.
good luck

It sucks that people are such inattentive drivers these days . Our G6 came within $150.00 of being declared totaled . Stay off the damn phones and focus your eyes on the road !
