We just got home with the car and i spent the last hour setting the radio, seats, homelink, etc... I also got some pics, they are not the greatest, but i will get them up in a few minutes. Hopefully this week or weekend, i will get some daytime pics. Neither of us have seen the car in the day!

I just created a quick cardomain page for the GXP. The pictures aren't that good, it was 10pm and my camera sucks. I will get some daytime pics when i get some sun.

SkiBum1229,

I'm VERY new here; since I ran across an '05 and I am fence-sitting and joined to gather some info before leaping in (with check-book).

I know you are in a diffrent area, but what did she pay for it, if you don't mind me asking? I hate to admit it, but the biggest sitcking point I am at is the bottom line price.

Thanks in advance

Allen

I have to say... that is one BEAUTIFUL Bonneville. Congrats!

(and good choice BTW. )

But, is it just me, or is the white part of the seat loook like it has dirt packed into it already? (looks dirty almost???)

It looks dirty in the picture, but its not. I checked the entire car for marks and interior wear. It is light pewter, i will try to brush it in the same direction and get some new pics soon.

Quick Question, The GXP comes with a trunk air compressor. The salesman told me the hose and the attachments are in the spare tire well. When i got home, i was looking for them and couldnt find them. Am i missing them, or are they really not there?

Also, when he was showing us the car he said that the sunroofs in the 2005 models dont have the plastic visor that pops up to stop the wind noise, I didnt question it. hen we got home i was looking at it, and its there, but its cracked and you have to lift it with your hand, but it doesnt stay in place, just falls back down. When we go back next week for the plates, i will mention it and ask him to get a new one and also lubricate the sunroof track, its making a horrible grinding noise.

Thanks.

Oh boy i think that they screwed you out of the trunk bag...get back there and demand one...seriously they are a precious commodity for our cars

and as for the Sunroof a few members have had the sunroof quit working on the 00+ and it started with the grinding noise....keep an eye on that, and the deflector should be there and if its cracked get it fixed....no reason to have a new car and have stuff messed up already
