Awesome

There'* this purpley SSEi (I think), Series II model it should be, on a car lot near me. It'* on Chesswood Dr., outdoor lot, just north of Sheppard West, if anyone (hint hint, GTA area) wants to check it out. There'* also an older-looking NA model next to it.

that bonneville looks great man. Good choice! I know what you mean about not modding it now that you have it, but ya know, I said the same thing, and now almost a year later I'm now starting to mod anyway. You'll do it too sooner or later.

Congratz AM..... she looks awesome!

Of course... it asks the question, what is going to happen to "Red Rocket".
A 94 SSE, heavily modded and with nitro.... hrm.... could be interesting.

It would be if you could keep her, but that'* probably not in the cards.

Shlick car ya got there Kyle. So how'* the SSE gonna make it out to B-fest to show a juiced L27 at the track?
For the headlights there are two 10mm bolts next to the radiator, and they screw in towards the engine, parallel to the ground (behind grille edge when hood is closed). Once those are out push gently, but firmly towards the outside of the car as the headlight, cornering lamp and headlight bracket are one piece when removing the headlamps.
Also, for the airbox, I never had any probs removing them on my 99, but then the trans had been out once before I got the car and they may have never put the clips back on. I'd suggest once you've gotten the airbox bolts out as far as you can get them with the socket take a pliers and pull straight up on them.

BTW, you'd be surprised how good those 9-spokers look on a green 1994 SLE, and the ghetto golds look almost as good on a black 1999 SSEi (which has almost twice as many miles as your 1998 SSEi).

Looks nice, Mach!!

For the headlights, you gotta remove the two bolts in towards the middle of the car (yellow arrow in pic I believe) and gently fight the whole element out (sometimes pushing down on the bumper cover helps)

For the airbox screws, I always take the hose off first, then lift the back of the airbox up to keep pressure on the screws as I unscrew them.

This car is so nice in so many ways. I love leather, and black leather just makes me feel important.
I never had a sunroof before, so that'* a major plus and the ride is unbelieve. Also, Magnasteer simply kicks butt.

I think thats about it though...oh wait there was one more thing, now what was it?

Oh yes, that little Eaton M90 supercharger stuffed under the hood. I can't believe I've been missing out on the boost! Boost is now my best friend.

As for the Red Rocket (94 SSE), she'* sitting in one of the sheds and will go on the market shortly. Stay tuned if you're interested.
