Default So long - ok...maybe I'll stay

Its official... I am at a point with my consulting business that I need a more fuel efficient car with larger cargo capacity. I have already ordered a Chevrolet Malibu Maxx. I am going to miss modding the Bonneville and chit-chatting with you guys. This forum has been incredibly helpful for diagnosing problems and with modifications. So far I have'nt had much luck finding a similar forum for the Malbiu or for my VW. You can't beleive how many times I've had a topic hijacked or witnessed a flaming that went completely unaddressed...and dont even get me started on what these people post about their VW street racing stories...at any rate; Thanks to everyone here who inspired (you know who you are!). When the Malibu comes in the Bonneville goes bye-bye.

I think we'd still let you visit, if you asked real nice!

You know that you can always come here and hang in the lounge or wherever and see what'* happening "At the Track". We won't mind.

Don't tell me that you can just go cold turkey BC... :P

Malibu max gets the same gas miliage as the bonnie or within 1 mpg but yeah for sure more cargo room, my buddy just got a new malibu max for a work car and it is nicer than I thought.

good luck though and make sure to check back in..and yeah just becuase you dont have a boneville does not mean you cannot hang out...I havent been banned yet..

Sorry to see you move from the Bonneville into a Malibu but we understand. Good luck with the max and may your business continue to grow

I really like the Mali Maxx! Anyone I see driving one really likes to drive it fast. I'm sure it motors around nicely.

oh and Mike C...aka sse1990 has a Malibu forum, www.malibuclub.ca

Try it out!
