Come to our side, brother! Our goal is to steal as many Bonneville owners as possible.

Seriously tho shortstuf, check out our current Aurora Club forums here if you want to learn more. My '99 has all options except factory chromes and Bose sound, and I added chrome rims from a Bonneville as Jim did.

And its much cheaper option then a new GXP

That being said, I love the toned down styling of the GXP and the overal presence the car has, I saw one today in midnight blue...looked right proper beside my Big White
Mmmm Aurora.

I walked in wearing sweatpants that were sitting pretty low, and a baggy white shirt. My friend had jeans and a t-shirt on.

Nothing like 275hp and 300ft-lbs of torque on a fwd car

LS2 with ony 303 hp? **** they detuned the hell out if it then. the vette and GTO make 400 and I would be supprised if that figure is slightly detuned also.

The 303hp motor isn't the LS2, as far as I know, as it'* a 5.3L.

I'm curious just how many people have been converted over to the "dark side" of the aurora. Off hand there'* Jim, Scotty, Me, who else?
