Well I'm 6'2" and with the front seat all the way back I don't have enough legroom, plus the wide console keeps my right leg from laying over to the side. The console hits my calf and is very uncomfortable. I hope they change it for the 2004 model.

Does anyone know what changes, if any, are coming for 2004?

I'm sorry. My earlier post left out one important word. NOT.
It should have read
That is exactly the problem The front seat in the Bonne does NOT have as much rearward travel as the GP does, and it is FRONT SEAT legroom I need, not back seat.

you must have REALLY long legs then because I am also 6'2" and with the seat all the way back I have just the right amount of leg room.

He has the 92-99 style interior like most of us here on this site, which is why we aren't complaining. 32 inseam?? Thats how big mine is, and i'm 5'9". How much leg room do you need?

Only enough to be comfortable. The Grand Prix has plenty (more than enough) but the Bonne doesn't.

Well is this the deciding factor?!?! What else is holding you off from a bonneville over a GP. Ever considered an older one say a 99 SSEi? Would be a lot cheaper, and could be in pristine condition (my 93 was).

Yes it is. I want a new car and will not spend $30K+ or whatever on one that is not comfortable, would you?
