Hello everyone, I wish I new about this sight way back when. Here is my dilemma. I have a 99WS6 which I would like to sell or trade in for a new Bonneville GXP. Problem is with the discontinue of the Bonne I'm thinking if I should wait for the replacement or get this last Bonneville?

Mike, Welcome to BC. I would definitely get the GXP if I were in your position.

It all comes down to personal preferance. Only you can make the decision.

Personally, I'd hold onto that WS6. It'll always be more rare than a Bonneville and will hold its value much better. If you compare apples to apples, they're both out of production or going out of production.

The WS6 is a badass car. I see you already own a 94, which is a very reliable car for daily driving. I'd keep the WS6 just because Trans Am'* are amazing cars. Just IMO.

Trade in the 94 for a GXP and keep the WS6 as well
Best of both worlds.

Going from 2 doors to 4 must mean you need the extra room?
The gxp has nice styling and v8 power but you may want a gtp for the L32, those gen v blowers are great.

Hey Guys, thanks for the advice!! If it were financially possible I would love to be able to keep everything but with getting married next yearI I can't have 2 cars anymore because the insurance is killing me. Having one car is the more practical thing to do. My 94 Bonne has 116,000 miles on it so i need something newer for reliabilty reasons, plus when we go on trips we're not limited to just driving my fiancee'* suv because it'* a lease. I'm not even sure I can afford a GXP depending what kind of deal I get I may end up getting a regular Bonneville. Right now we are debating whether we sell the TA or trade it in?

I also have another question, it seems like some 05 Bonnevilles have the newer style taillights and some don't. Whats up with that?
