I didn't really want a car that everyone else on the road was driving. There are very few Bonnevilles on the road in Canada, especially 2K+ and even fewer GXP'*. Other than that, there were a few things that really attracted me to them. I used to be a pilot and love zillions of buttons. The Bonneville sure has it'* fair share. What really sold me though was the E/M button. On the test drive, the salesman pressed it and when I saw the speedometer needle recalibrate to MPH and I thought that was just too cool. I knew right there I had to have the car. Pretty poor reason to buy a car, but whatever. It'* a Bonneville and I already knew they were an otherwise great car.
