Default What'* my next car?

Well the problems are adding up too fast for me right now.
My torque converter unlocks when it gets hot and starts slipping,
My right rear spaeker is blown,
My sunroof leaks,
My power antenna is starting to stick,
My driver'* door has a massive draft,
My heater only works when I start the car cold,
My radiator is leaking,
My driver'* door key doesn't turn off the alarm, and I don't have the fob,
My left fog light keeps burning out,
And the padding on the driver'* seat is sliding around again.

SO, I think, as soon as I get some cash-flow going, I'm going to buy a newer car.
I like the power that the SC 3.8 puts down so I'm going to stick with that, but switch up to a Series 2.
I kinda like being able to throw a BIG car like the Bonnie around and the ride is exceptional, but I want to do some performance work and the weight is a bit high.
I like the LSS for the simple fact that the ricers have no idea how fast they, whereas the SSEi and the GTP are well-known here in Columbus, home of INTENSE.
I like the Gran Prix, but the interior always seemed kind of spartan to me.
The Regal GS seems like the best option, for the softer ride, better interior, lower weight, and good performance.
Toss-up, input appreciated.
Options are:
96-99 Bonneville SSEi
96-99 Olds 88 LSS
Regal GS
Gran Prix GTP

What do you guys think?

i guess both the regal and the ssei would be happy medians. the lss seems a bit more grandma-ish and the gtp is much sportier (but you know of those cheap pontiac interior plastics. at least the buick and the olds make an attempt at luxory with faux wood)

The GTP interior is still pretty nice. I recommend it because I drive one, and I love it a lot. It handles great too. A Regal GS would be my #2 choice because they are very classy, and much more elegant than the GTP.

Oh? GM interiors are cheap cost cutting measures. Go sit in a Brand new GXP, then an entry level 3 series (same price). The best GM interior in the modern era was the GTO, because it was from aussie land. Now the new impala and Monte Carlo are great inside from the pictures i've seen.

I like mine. Real wood and all that is nice, but I kinda like the clean/bare, red on black look. I also like how easy it is to get inside the dash if I need to.
