Not to many cars (or Auroras have it) the only way to tell is is you have gold emblems on the hood and gold AURORA on the rear tails. QQX makes this citidiot very happy

Oh and we did 120 km today, and I used 14L of gas....the needle didn't move. Impressive and we hammered it a few times. Oh ya, in fact Paul was leading in the District and decided to "give er ****" and well, 5 screamin Bonnies on the 403 southbound...wow...oh and me, taken up the rear(of the convoy...dumbass)

Default well..

Most of the bravadas have gold emblems(bling) but yea.. I think that would be cool... I should take my emblems off (the ones the say 'oldsmobile' not trofeo... I dont wanna mess up) and gold plate them
-When I was messin around in the trunk I found out why my car stinks... The inside of my trunk is wet (cuz the trapped air and the heat of the muffler under it--??) so tomorrow I have to rip it all out and let it dry... anyone have a little cubby hole behind there spare tire? it has a form fit cover and a the carpet goes over it... lol... I have my suspisions of who gm made my car for

Maybe, just maybe, by it being an 8 cylinder, the car tops out at 135mph/220km/h

Jason, in regards to the comparision. When I drove that 97SSEi for Merlin1 last week, it was definitely a great experience. In direct comparsion to the Aurora though...here we go. The SSEi has WAY more low end grunt and head-back-into-seat power, its raw and agressive, its the wolf in wolfs clothing no doubt. However, the Aurora, is slower off the line, but reaches insane speeds faster then the SSEi did...IMO of course. The leather seats in the Aurora are firmer, softer leather, heated and has dual lumbar and memory settings. The DIC is more advanced then the Bonneville, the stereo is better and I like the shifter more then the cobra style head. The Aurora has a feeling of uni-body construction, and I find it more solid then the SSEi fromn 97.

Both are and have always been my fave domestic cars by a longshot. You ask any Bonneville driver is he/she could have an Aurora, and I bet they would take it. If it had a HUD, then it would be the perfect car.

Aurora = Class, grace, elegance, luxury, power
SSEi = brute strength, get the hell outta my way before I kick your ***, Performance with Attitude...

LOL, now only if I had split personalities....

I'm happy. Can we put this thread to bed now???
