You do a pretty good job with the acting then . I, on the otherhand, don't even pretend, I think everyone would see through the act.

2 single pipe config dual exhaust is never good even on V8s. An X pipe is the best for performance bar none, and sound as well, as both banks of cylinders can share music.

Some Vipers had true dual exhaust, and they sounded like twin I-5'* because of it.

Jeanie, for the cosmetic mods, I too would not do the chrome wipers. It brings attention to something that shouldn't get attention. BUT I'd pick up some chrome door edge trim and cut it and apply it like I did in my pic below (except mine is gold...of course ). Just a little trim like that will help. Just don't go crazy with it. I know you wouldn't. I have seen people with Bonnes who have put the trim on every edge possible, and it looked disgusting. But everyone has told me they like the trim I have.

The door trim and chrome exhaust tips would help bring the chrome throughout the car better. And the grill will finish it up nicely. And add a nice simple chrome license plate frame on the back if you don't have one. I have a gold one that I painted to match my grill, exhaust tips and lug nut covers. It helps unify everything.

The Angel Eyes would be great too. It'* one of the best mods I've done (non-performance).

Here'* my door edge trim: (sorry the pic isn't the greatest)

I agree that the wipers are a no-no, it just wouldnt look good at all. The door trim, like 94sse pointed out, would look good on there.

you will have plenty of silver showin after you clear the lights and paint your grille. I wouldnt bother with the chrome wipers, IMO they look cheesy. The door trim would look neat if you dont overdo it like bonnie94sse said.

Maybe chrome door handles? Don't want too much on a bonneville though, it'* not built like older cars.

New 01 Chrome SLE Badges?

Oh! I like that idea. Yeah, I was just thinking that maybe I do have to be careful with the chrome...part of what makes my car look a bit different is that it is all black and doesn't have any metal trim on it.

Why not some SSEi badges on that bad boy? Or maybe some Type R or Type * stickers. A large wing (makes it faster, you know). You could spend a couple thousand on some large heavy rims, because if it looks better, it'* faster, or so i'm told. A hood scoop would really spice it up. Non-functional of course. Dont' forget the NOS buttons. You don't need to install NOS though. The buttons should be enough to scare anyone away. Don't forget a REALLY low body kit. The more your car drags the ground, the better off you will be. Oh, I almost forgot the stripes. Racing stripes that is. Don't forget to have all the stuffed animals lined up on the rear window.

Get your airbox gutted. My 95 sounds better than my 2k IMO due to this. My 95 had neon lights btw. They will probably be making the debut on the 2k this summer, if i can find one of the same damn size to go on the other side Mind you the neons came after the gutton airbox, cai, thermostat and tint. The horse has been sucking up my money so i havn't been able to get the 2k studded up...but it will be ready for summer.

Do whatever makes you feel good and is unique to your car.
