In fall of 2010 I bought a 2011 GT with the Brembo package and 3.73 gears.
This spring I traded that car for one with standard 18" wheels and 3.31 rear.
What a difference!
The suspension on the Brembo package handled well, but the ride beat you up.
Plus, the summer-only tires had to be taken off for the winter, even in NC.
The 3.73 gears gave great acceleration, but made for too much noise on the highway; first gear was superfluous. The newer car rides nicely, and still handles well.
With the 3.31 gears you give up some acceleration but get a relaxed cruiser, up to 30 mpg.
So, consider your options carefully before you buy.
