OH my....how could i have forgot about this. The way i have my steering wheel is perfect for my own drving. I set it liek this in other cars as well and i can see ALL the numbers on teh dashboard to see how fast i go. If it wasnt for the HUC in these cars,(92-99) i wouldnt be able to see 0mph-25mph.......95mph-125mph unless i leaned forward or dropped the tilted steering wheel to my legs. I wish i was able to see more of the dash on these cars. Maybe the 00+ dont have that prob.

Gosh...seems like some of you are staring at the hud display and not through it.

Treat it like snow...you can see it...but you can also see past it.

I like my HUD. I like the complements i get too when SOME ppl drive it. They arereally in awe when they see it. I just hate the fact that i only can see 30-90mph on the speedo because of the steering wheel in the way.

My cupholders suck.

Oh wait... I don't have cupholders. Not one. Well, I guess that'* not good either.

I dislike the trunk water leak. I really should find out there that comes from...

Speaking of the trunk, it would be nice if the lid came down farther in the back, maybe including the tail lights, so that I didn't have to lift things chest-high to get them into the trunk.

Other than that... I like it.

Like everyone else mentioned... The cups holds I'm not to fond of.
I find it anoying that my antena stays up when I'm playing a cd.
And the bonne being FWD but thats not to big of deal to me.
A window lock button would have been nice but a quick smack to one of my friends' heads normaly eliminates that need in no time.

Its funny you mention that... A long time ago a good friends 87 Bonneville had that window lockout feature... But that was one of the only Bonnevilles I ever saw it in...
