Yep, I've been getting a lot of questions about the mileage. It was my grandmother'* car and was given to me about a month ago. Pretty sporty car for an 85-year-old grandma! Had 13,946 miles when I picked it up. Still blows my mind when I look down at the odometer from time-to-time.

Thanks for your help with the exhaust. I'd love to go dual. Really evens the rear-end out.

I know the Bosals are going to be high. I'm not really interested in any aftermarket exhaust at this point however. I want to keep it fairly stock looking and sounding without any flashy tips or anything. I just figured that since the left frame rail has the threads for a muffler hangar, I might as well look into it.

Is the single muffler on the SE'* the same as the duals on SLE'* and SSei'*??? I wonder if a fella could hit a salvage yard and find a the exhaust system from the Y-pipe back on an SLE or SSei.

I've been to a U-wrench-it in Kansas City looking for a spoiler and they had no 2000-2005 Bonnevilles however, so it may be difficult to locate a donor car. They had five pre-2000 Bonnevilles!

Most people keep there 00-05 SE/SLE/SSEi spoilers on... Thats a good mod! And yes I think the mufflers are the same... Check your sir...

I went for the dual exhuast mod for my vehicle and while the sound is different its not ricey or overwhelming. Just adds a nice tone to the exhaust and it looks great. Take the car to a custom muffler shop and tell them exactly what sound you want; I paid about $190 for two new mufflers, two tips and the labor. I went with some off-brand on the mufflers but they sound great and my MPG has not suffered at all.

Thanks.

Where are you in Iowa? I've got two friends up there--one in Silver City (works in Council Bluffs) and one in Des Moines.
