Ahhhhhhh you remind me of my Ex. took her 5 years to decide what she was going to do. She sold the jeep then kept the van then when the van was worth nothing she sold it and is looking for a jeep again. Ok you’re not like my ex but I couldn’t help but poke at ya. I figure if you get a 540i you made an excellent choice and if you wait and get the new Bonneville you will need new disks right away but it will most likely be an awesome ride.

Default Mods or GX/P?

Here'* a question I have for you guys and gals,

Don't you think the price of the new GX/P will be considerably higher than the price of the current SSEi?? I mean the biggest problem Pontiac has selling the SSEi is because if you look at the MSRP of the car...around 35K...you start geting into BMW territory or Lincoln. So most people shy away from Bonnevilles. If they produce the newer more powerful version of the Bonneville with RWD and a bigger supercharger, it sounds to me like...cha 'ching!! It'll cost more. What do you guys think? If that'* the case, it seems like just doing some small mods to the current cars will be better to attain the GX/P look...except of course the RWD part if that'* what they do. What do you all think...I'm curious to know.

I think the goal of the new RWD platform is to compete successfully with the higher price market, but I figure the only place they will truly compete is in the hp and performance arena. That said that is all that really matters to me. So yes they will be more expensive but they will put out in a way that will hurt the BMW. Well that is my guess.

Nice I love the car what is that one of those distinctly very cool Bonneville’*. I figured they only gave them out to the elite. Wow

I love the site. Actually on a side not this weekend I am taking out my dash. I was going to bug you for some tips that you might have. I have gutted many a car but it’* always nice to know the tricks learned through pain and the problems to look out for.

Either e-mail me your phone # or ill e-mail you mine. I can also just do the e-mail correspondence if you don’t want do the phone deal.
