I really do like the bonneville better. It actual gets better fuel milage on highway it get about 27-30mpg, also the bonneville has more torque so it lot more fun to drive. When check both motors produce the same hp. The other that I like about the car is that start very very smooth no matter how cold it is and sounds like it ready drive from that point(I don't though always wait unitl the rpm have fallen to normal idle which about 800). Bville also rides smoother and quiter ride(that motor make about no sound until about 3500 rpm). The down side to the bville is that I don't really like bench seatiing. The other thing the sound system it mailbu is actual better sounding(bass is harder and yes it stock).Also for city drive the mailbu get better fuel milage and it easy to park.

But ask me this question in about 6 months after I get the maiblu running right.

No It will take about hour or two to get fix. What is wrong the car is theft light is alwys on and sometime will no start for that. HOw to overcome that is just leave the key ign for about 20 min then it will starts. 2nd problem is the blinker will on occansin not work at all that is most like the device driclty behind the flasher swioth that is cause not sure what the correct name is. The reason I said 6 month I give the car that long after the orignial things that were broken are fix to decide if it good car.

Sounds to me like it'* time for you to get a second B'ville, lol. Get a newer one with the good seats and you won't ever have to complain about seats again. Then your wife can go ahead and have the '92, heh, heh.

oh I would like that. Maybe with my new job I might serious look into that. although hate to do that have barrly had the mabliu for month. And retiring the 92 as not option in my book at least for now. I mean if the engine or the tranny was to go then yes but not until then.

Oh, we have an answer for that one too, lol. Once you get the new one, it frees up the '92 for some serious modding fun. What more could a guy ask for???

It'* easy for us to help spend your money...heh, heh.
