Both options have their own positives and negatives.

It would also probably require doing a little research to see where the air would flow out best... but its not a bad idea if there are cool lookin ones out there!

im not sure if the airflow benefit really exists with the bonnes becuase of where the stablizer bar (cant think of what its called) makes those huge bumps on each side.

that sounds stupid but im trying to make a good point lol

You are making a point. Buick Park Avenue has the real stuff, because it can fit it. You don't see that huge face in all sedans.
Others, just put on fake ones.

funny, i would have thought somebody would have said to photoshop it by now. i would recommend it, so you have a fair idea what you are getting in to.

I was actually going to do it to my car next weekend. (After my visit to Lawrence Technological University). But I have to find some free time.

Maybe I'll post some pics.

I considered the Park Ave Ultra portholes on my Regal when I had it. i like the looks of them a lot. Not sure how they'll look on a Bonneville, but only one way to find out. Me personally, I would get functional ones rather than stick-on. The functional ones, even if they don't function as they do on the park ave ultra, will have much more depth to them and look better in my opinion. I have a picture of the Park Ave ones on a regal somewhere...

Lol harofreak00!! I've been gotte that car paint a midnight blue, you just brought back old memories lol! But those port holes arent going on that car their going on the 97 which has been repaint to. I see what everyone else is talking about when they say get the fucntional ones but what really the difference other than those are custom made inside the Park Ave. No one really has time to get those thing and remodify there fenders white holes for the job to probably look stupid when its done that why the stick on ones are right for me. And for thatfact the Bonneville should need to have those cut in just for air to reach the engine seeing how the grill let'* enough air through.

I will post some NEWER and UP TO DATE pics on here soon!!
