I'm happy. Can we put this thread to bed now???
Now Jim, did you have some Martinis when you said this?? Because you know it won't ever end...Mwwuaahahahahaaa

And yes guys, the Rora IS a sexy beast at night. It was pretty fun passing cars at 120mph, as if they were standing still.

The late summer ON BonneClub meet definitely kicked a$$!! So when'* the next one?

89BonnieSE89, When I got my 99 Aurora it had the silver emblems but I put the gold emblems on it. I had gold all over the place.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think the gold plated emblems signifies the Autobahn package. I have seen a few Auroras around, but only one other white on had the gold emblems. I also really like the pearl finish on the paint. It stands out even against typical flat or metallic white. For example I compared Aeraeik (Hailey and Robs) car against my own and the pearl finish makes a difference.

I don't want to change the look of the car from the outside at all. I will however add xenon low beams and 20% tint all around. If I'm feeling daring I might go custom plates. Oh by the way, the car has been aptly named Northstar.

So, off to Innisfil to get new decals.

Northstar

Another test for Autobaun is bring it above 116mph, non autobaun'* are limited.
Well, Peter and I had the car up to 130mph last night or 210 kph, maybe a little less, so does that mean no governor???

When I got my 99 I had 7 to choose from. The cars were brought in for the annual BC Open where GM provides cars for the golfers. I got mine before they were given out. There was one in Pearl White with the gold emblems but it didn't have the Autoban package. Since my previous lease was a 97 Pearl White Riviera I went for the gold.
