Default Rice vs Bonne comparo...

Here are some things that i've noticed ricers doing, that bonnevilles come stock with....

Body kit - The paneling on a bonne looks sporty and is pretty low, specially the SSE/I
Wheels - Bonnevilles have some very nice wheels, everything from chrome to ghetto crosslaces.
Altezza Lights - The SSE/i has some nice lights from the factory
Shaved Badging - it says bonneville once on my car, the bumper, and only one badge from GM, where it says pontiac....
Spoiler - yeah some imports haev spoilers from the factorys, but a bonne without a spoiler is a bubble butt, it'* not a wing thou...
Modified wipers - our wipers hide automatically, and we still have two check out this pic, a lot of people are doing this nowadays http://www.ricecop.com/ricepics/RiceB019.jpg.
Racing seats - our seats have some very bgi side supports for a "Lux" car, think a $14k civic has them?
I had a huge list, but i can't remember much more of it. I think it'* funny how a lot of these things are like what our cars come with, but they can be done so horribly, i guess seeing that pic just pissed me off Anyone else got anything to add to the list?

No.. but I know how you feel bout that.. Jim and I had a talk about that a while back.. why get a cheapo car.. spend so much more to make it half decent.. when you could've saved a buck or two and bought a real car in the first place.. STOCK with all the bells and whistles

One thing i forgot to say, the bonneville is tasteful!!! Very clean lines, i really love how right above the wheel well on the rear quarters are done, and they aren't too sporty or to granny looking. They are all the same color all around, and very comfy! GM needs to market this thing better, and then they would sell them like sparklers on the 4th of july...

you'll see more gp commercial cause its cheap and it'* a toilet car ( like toilets.. everyone has one ).. and whatever sell they will put the $$ into the ads for those ( like Crappyliers and Sunflowers ).. that'* why you won't see ads for Vipers, Vettes and such either.

I have seen enough Bonneville commercials myself. I like the one when they bury the Licoln Town car and bring out the SSEi in the cemetary. Does anyone else remember this?
