Say what you will about those ghetto rims, I think they look great with a matalic forrest green paint scheme. BTW, I am a purist, not a ricer...I like the original look, especially for my sleeper Supercharged SE. It came with those "ghetto rims" and it will stay with them (Pictures will be up soon). I also think that WillWren'* idea of a customized trailer with matching paint/16 in gold rims sounds great.

As for being a purist, I do make an exception on performance mods. All in the name of fun at the expense of unsuspecting rice crispies!!!

Tamara,
A NC engine was designed to run on 87 octane, but by no means does that mean that it won't run better on high-test, especially under street racing conditions. Run what you want and be happy After all, that'* why we have Bonnies! As for my SC, my owners manual says that my car was designed to run on 91++, but makes the allowance for 87-90 octane. But when I tried it (to save money) the knock controll robbed all of my zip and made the car act as though the blower was only operating spiratically under load. I will never do that again!

When I first got my car I wanted the gold ghetto rims rally bad. I was going to scrap yards looking for them and everything...untill....
one day i saw them on a dodge caravan (shudder)
and i said never...never as long as i live will i put the same rims a dodge caravan has on my car!! That was before I realized what rims i had
My ex-boyfriend rather skillful (and probably intentionally) ran over a huge island curb with my car while rubber-necking over a mustang (i HATE those cars...ooooh just talking about this makes me SO MAD ) and totally dented one of my rims. Then I found out to get a new one from GM would cost me over $600 CDN for that stupid rim!...needless to say he never drove my car again...

I don't mean any offensive about them Ghetto gold rims... I just call them ghetto rims because they reminded me of movies from the 80'* where you get the pimp cars.. but the have a habit of having gold rims. . There is another White Bonnie SSEI in my town but he has the 5 star rims that most SSEI comes with, and I like the fact that at least with them ghetto rims on my car.. I still know it'* my car from a distance.

I tried running 89 octane instead of 92 ( supreme ) and the car seems to like it better.. even just before WOT ( as far as I know.. when you go on WOT, the computer uses a default setting for all climate ) and even on WOT.. It definitely doesn't like regular 87 octane but I don't want to count on what it feels like.. I"m looking for a laptop and the connector for the OBD II to read the sensors to find out exactly if there'* a difference or not on KR. Has anyone tried it, that has some type of autotap or reader ??

You HAVE heard that GM has a TSB on Shell gas!
Shell'* "NEW" fuel additive clogs up the fuel level sensor module card in the gas tank with sludge! Just be careful.
