would also like to add how the bonne steering wheel feels twice as thick in diameter... way nicer..

the rora shift **** feels like a board, not comfortable at all... looks cool though

Its seen some better days

I prefer the Aurora dash panel vs the LSS, the Aurora offers more of a wrap around interior. I prefer the paddle shift over the cobra anyday, nothing quite like it. And for god sakes the Aurora A is upside down :o

The interior looks waaaay nicer then the condition of the exterior...eesh but for $3600 bux...meh.

Andrew, the newer Bonneville steering wheel is thicker (similar to the 2nd gen Aurora) but if you compare the overall diameter of the wheel versus a 92-99 wheel its way smaller. To me, the Aurora wheel has more substance then my 94 wheel. You and I are getting opposite feeback from the steering on both cars.

I still would prefer Bonnevilles over Auroras, don't get me wrong. I like Auroras but I like the styling of the Bonneville, it'* more" younger", aggressive, and I really like the red glow it gives off at night. That'* one of the reason why I brought my Bonnie. But I'm sure they're nice cars, just would rather stay with Bonnies, at least the company is still around.
