well i just bought a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue, thats right folks we have ourselves another Oldsmobile convert
theyre gonna have to change the name of the site soon.
exterior: not as aggressively styled as the Bonneville in my opinion, very subtle, but subtle isnt necessarily bad, the rims are ok, i liked the 5 spoke alloys i had better, but they wouldnt let me keep em, they wouldve fit this car too...bastards....its a nice deep red...a good looking little car
interior: this car is smaller than the Bonneville...thats the first thing i noticed....but they did a good job of keeping the interior from feeling like its collapsing on you, i got in a Riviera that was there and my head was brushing the ceiling almost and it felt really small, this car is midsize but doesnt seem it when youre inside.
engine/handling: im loving the 3.5 Shortstar already, it has similar power ratings to the Series 2 NA, but it feels completely different, revs much faster and higher than the 3800 and just flat out goes..the handling is MUCH better already than the Bonneville, it feels much more surefooted than the Bonnevile, hardly rolls in corner and all , quite stiff in the corners..i like it, also since its smaller its much more agile in parking lots and stuff compared to the Bonnevile...
allright enough of the Car and Driver review, heres a couple bad pics, ill get some good ones later
