Greetings from Philly.Great forum, lots of info. I'm Johnny (Havisman2000) and I just bought a 2000 Bonneville SE with 67000 mi. Love the car, but what can I expect with MPG, maintaince, etc. What performance(bolt on) mods can I do? Look foward to talking to all of the forum members.

Thanks,Johnny

My car is silver. Oh, by the way, where is the paint code located? I need to get some touch up.

Thanks,

RPO codes are located on the spare tire cover, on the inside, check the paint code along the bottom

Welcome to the club!! Yep, like Jim said, RPO codes can be found on the spare tire, although I found the sticker on the outside on mine...

Welcome to the club!! For mpg'* I'm gonna say about mid 20'* with a mix of city and highway. City in the upper teens or maybe low 20'*, and all freeway around 30 mpg +/-2.

For mods check out techinfo. There'* abit of power to free up there.

Thanks for the warm welcome.Your cars look great, love the mods. All those ideas, but just not enough money. I'll just have to pick and choose.

Thanks,

Well, at least for starters (and cheap insurance against a failed upper intake) pick up a 180* t-stat and rubber o-ring. Should cost you under $10. Be sure to drill it with two 1/16 holes on the rim of the t-stat to prevent heat shock.

Whether you're modding, looking for a part # or just want a good clean forum to get a good laugh on you've found it here. Stick around and you'll become daily attendee here.
