I chose the new body style to have with and not be noticed by the cops. I then added 18'* a loud stereo and 6000k non-projector H.I.D'*, I still don't get noticed.


Post a pic of the colors you're thinking about so we can give a better opinion

This is a funny thread..

The cost to change the color of your car is going to be way, way, expensive...all so you don't attract attention from the cops? Something doesn't add up here? black is not an attention grabber..a bright color like yellow or red grabs attention much much worse. Loose the tint, or go lighter tint, that will help out a ton...

More importantly..dont do anything illegal..let them pull you over, what do you have to worry about if they do? hiding something? Just saying, cops arent going to just pull people over for NO reason or because their car is black..

He does make a pretty good point. Black cars generally don't attract a bunch of extra attention, it is the bright colors that really get it. I mean, the cops could be profiling, but perhaps there is something about your driving habits if you are getting a lot of attention (whatever that means)

Also, repainting a whole car is pretty expensive, and even if you have the skill to do so yourself, the cost is still pretty high and there is an enormous amount of labor involved.

idk about that. There are a few of the later generation bonnevilles in the parking lots around the dorms and in the highschool parking lot in my town.

In this area, it is generally trailer trash and Native americans who own the 90-99 bonnevilles.

It all depends on the area. Around here in Lima I pass at least 3-4 Bonnes with my body style a day with an elderly person behind the wheel. There'* at least 5 90-99 Bonnes at my school and 3 (including mine) of my body style.
