Default New here, just got a Bonneville.

Had an 06 Cobalt SS 5-speed (2.4 non-supercharged) for about 2 years.... 2 years left on the lease and It'll be transfered to my brother. In short? I get a new car. Specifically, a 2004 Pontiac Bonneville GXP. Black. 57k miles. 14k before ttl. HUD and XM as only options... no sunroof. The weird console thing they put up there when there'* no sunroof is kind of odd. Why would you need an outlet in the headliner? And just what would you put in that little cubby that won't just fly out when you accelerate? Weirdness.

Well, the GXP isn't that well known for it'* accelleration, so you could probably use that cubby for anything but a wet bar of soap!

The GXP winds out and shines in freeway passing. You should have fun with it. Quite a step from the Cobalt.

Oh... and no pics until A) It stops raining and B) I get rid of the stupid Carmax decal and the ugly pinstripes. What'* the best way to rid the car of those things without damaging the paint?

Plug in a cell phone charger and put your cell phone in that area. My 94 SSEi has that area too, but because of the curved up lip, the cell phone has only fallen out a few times. The rule of thumb for me is not to charge my cell phone while I'm accelerating with people in the back.
