Can't wait to see your new car this weekend!! I probably would have gotten it if I were in your position. Especially since there are never any SSEi'* for sale here. I'd keep my Bonne too.

It'* cool Paul has your Bonne, at least it'* in good hands. I wouldn't want to sell my car because the new owner would probably trash it. I'd hate to drive by and see my Bonne totalled at a body shop lot.

Congrats Jim!

King...??

Thanks dudes...I will call and see for you Merlin. I hope to have it for this weekend, I may not be able to drive it, my plates are still on the Bonne. So a small cruze might work. But its a sight to see, very sleek car. At night hello...can't wait to drop in 12 cd'*, peel back the moonroof, sit back in nice leather, press the memory setting to fix the lumbar, set the AC to something nice and light up the tach...lol, traction off and performance shift....nice car. I'm happy

But...I'm even more thrilled that one of my best buds has the District and will be joining us here

Default yeah

if it was a daily driver the oil leak was probably fixed a while back. Just take it to 'jiffy lube' and for 10buxx they change your oil and check/change/fill other fluids... For 10buxx cant go wrong(even if the oils clean/new). Then reset your oil index.

I payed 1200buxx for a rear brake job on my new truck (worn discs) just because it woulda taken me all day... for 10buxx I cant even say no anymore, the oil/filter alone is 7.99
atleast im not on the lease'* 90dollar oil change -I tryed a lease a while back... I couldnt do it... I just bagged for them to take the 2door/4x4 blazer back... worst 2gs I spent...
