This isn't a bad idea honestly, I don't love the looks of it but maybe some subtle exterior mods can help with that. Then put a better stereo in it for apple car play? Part of the problem with used GTs/3.6r is that they are so rare

Mazda 6- no awd
Hyundai Turbo- no awd
Kia Optima Turbo - no awd
Honda Accord- no awd
Nissan Maxima/altima- no awd
I can't stand ford, chevy, etc. any american cars for that matter.

Manufacturers have limited the selection for me by quite a bit if I want AWD. So along with maybe an older 3.6R if i can find one, i've moved up to 2016 Infiniti q50 3.0T, 2014 mercedes e series 4matic, 2015 bmw 328i xdrive. But with these luxury lines i have to make sure i can do the work myself or they quickly become out of my price range on the cost to own side of things.
