From what I have read, there is nothing new about the 2005, other than possibly a new exterior paint color. I was hoping Pontiac would have boosted the HP a little more or added the chrome wheels.

Between the 300C/Magnum and the Altima, the Bonneville is getting left behind. It looks like Pontiac wants to concentrate on the GTO and Gran Prix, and is assuming that Bonneville customers do not have high expectations. This comes as a surprise to me based on the lack-luster sales of the '04 GXP.

I agree... the Bonneville seems to have fallen behind for a few years now. I'm not very keen on paying $40k Canadian for something with an interior more consistent to that of a $15k CDN Cavalier/Sunfire

Greenzilla has been PROVEN faster than a GXP.....so has LOTS of cars here with the L67 motor. All you have to do is beat the mid 15s and you are at least AS fast as a stock GXP.

Are GXP very modable? Is there much of an aftermarket for them out there? Exhaust would be farily easy but is there anything else readily available?
