Oh come on now... You gotta tell after saying that!!!
When you fly in a 747 the flaps and ailerons are engaged to change the motion of the plane, especially noticable when you're sitting ready for take off and the sound of the jet engine doesn'd drown out the other sounds of the plane.

- it'* the same sound to me... sort of a ready for take-off sound. Knowing what it really is is kind of deflating... (pun intended)

Seriously tho - I've never used it and I've had the car for 4 years.. [/quote]

Wait the air inflator that fills the shocks in the rear is seperate from the tire inflator in back? I assumed the built in inflator was one of those cheap ones that take forever to fill a car tire? How does it perform?


Anyone?

I use mine about once a week (gotta slow leak in right-rear tire that I just don't have the time to get fixed right now. It takes about 5 or 10 minutes to add around 20lbs to the tire. The nice thing is that the fittings are all screw-on brass with a nice brass pressure gauge so you can just attach it, press the button, and relax while it airs up. Not to mention, it can make you a hero to some poor girl with a flat without even gettin' your hands dirty!

Where do you get the fitting/hose thingy? I asked about this way back when I had my 92 and noone knew any thing about it. Now I have it again with the 03, it would be nice to have...in an emergency.

Ok.. As long as you open your trunk and see the inflator valve right there, the hoses can be found on Ebay lately with the entire trunk bag road kit for $25 from Schramm Auto. They charge $15 shipping. I picked up two and gave one to Frankenbonne. They combined shipping and I only had to pay $15 total on my two bags to be shipped.

They are brand new in the original boxes and labeled from the contracted manufacturer to GM.

Here'* a link, they can be found by searching for Pontiac Roadside
