Thumbs down Anyone dislike the rear bumpers?

I think I've always hated the rear bumpers of the Bonnevilles... They add to the "granny look" of these cars and I think it almost represents a "Grandpa chin."

I don't see why they couldn't make it more sporty . Leave Buick for the "luxury" vehicles.

Just my opinion.

Many cars have naked pics taken at my place. It'* totally normal, and no one ever calls the cops.

Any year bonneville that matches the body style of my 1998. I can truly say I hate the bumper, I think there shouldn't be a massive bumper lip that hangs out.

Well USDM bumpers can be inexplicably massive because of crash test requirements.....

Does the 1999 have a better looking bumper?

No, the earlier eighth generation Bonnevilles have the worst rear bumpers.

i personally like the bumper on the 95 that we had. i like the lines and think it goes well with the car. plus, it was good for sitting on or sitting bottles or cans on.
