Sorry man, the Aurora stays at home, you can swing by my house if you really wanna see it. I only have one set of plates so, since the meet is coming up, the District represents.

I know for a fact that the SSEi is faster, but for a non-SC'd car, I'd make an NA Bonne look silly. Power shift anyone??

I may have the 3800 SC in HP, but not TQ

89BonnieSE89, Have you started playing around with the DIC yet? I liked it when I had the 99 Aurora. One thing I noticed when I was driving around with the fog lights, driving lights are whatever they are called it you put on your hi-beams it would cancel out the the fog lights. Try it out.

My trofeo same way...
The fog lights are my day time running lights (as soon as I put it into gear) Then at dusk it will say "headlights sugested" only because I dont like the sential..
If I turn my lights on then the fog lights go away or I can turn them back on with the button. Also the highbeams on it are quad (all 4 light up) lights and then even with the button pushed I still dont have fog lights with highbeams..

Do you have the theater dimming interior lights and daytime running lights in there?

Theatre dims and DRLs yes. Its cool when I lock and unlock the door, all the exterior lights flash, even the reverse lights....its neat, the interior lights dim after what, 10 seconds or so.

And everything is backlit. Even the gear shifter, the slide area where the shifter sits, glows green...I gotta take pics...lol

Also, does your car door lock as soon as you change the shifter from P to R, and does it have a saftey feature for when you open the driver side door and you push lock the doors stay unlocked?
