Default 2000 Bonneville SLE, and I'm from Springfield, Ohio.

What'* up everybody...as you can see, my name is duke, haha. I had just recently totaled my intrigue, and my parents compensated me with a 2000 SLE from our neighbors. Got it for 3500$, and everything in good condition. (except for the gas guage...ill explain that more later)




This is NOT mine, got this off the internet, but it looks EXACTLY the same. Same color, same rims....

I've never thought about like changing the look of the car I drive until recently. I have realized that I have a very nice looking car compared to most 18 year olds. And I am very proud to drive it...and I wash it constantly.

The only thing I have done so far is get a nice system from best buy, 2 infinity 12'*, pioneer headunit, and it'* all pushed by a kenwood 1800 watt class d mono block amp.

There are many mods I want to try, and here are a few:
-LED'* under the dash
-LED'* in the wheel wells
-Thinking of a pontiac or "bonneville" decal sticker for front/back
- want to paint my calipers, but don't know what color!
-LED'* in the door handles (exterior)
-LED blue headlights ?????

I don't have any pictures on my laptop, but I will take some when I get home from school...Im glad to find this forum, and I hope you guys can help me out in the future, i'm definitely going to need your guy'* help!

Small world, I am also from Springfield, OH and have the same exact car, same year, color, different rims though and less miles. I have about 108K and I have the 17 inch twisties. I also have a gas guage issue myself, gave me quite a scare on my trip down to Florida, it looked like I had plenty of gas from the guage, but then I went to gallons used and it said like 13, so I searched for the closest gas station on the GPS before I was on the side of the road.

Where in Springfield are you? I am over by JVS and Clark State and I work at the Guard Base full time.

OK, I just looked at my car outside, and I think mines a little darker than yours.

Hey Duke, I think I saw you last night. I was at a red light on Leffels Lane Turning left on to Selma and you were turning onto Leffels from Selma. If it was you the speakers sounded good and I saw the Blue LEDs also. I was in the white F150 getting ready to go fish. Girlfriend caught a catfish and something big that wore her arms out and got off the hook, now she has the fever and now she realizes why my brother and I talk about the ones that got away.
