yes, I took most of them off. However, I had to leave the koni/eibachs, powerslots, DHP. I think that'* about it. Had to spend one day demodding because I had to give the car up ofcourse. It was a fun day. I was beat. Had to do rockers, headers and a bunch of other stuff.......all in like 6 hours.

As for the color.........Check the rpo sticker on the spare tire cover. Should be some where near the bottom or the very bottom

WELCOME to the club, hvac! Glad to see someone moving in the right direction on the 3800 ladder of cars. My own social-climbing move was from a '95 SSEi to a '98 Park Avenue Ultra, and I gotta tell you, while the PA is much more my style, I definitely miss the fun of running the SSEi down through the twisties.

Good job moving from a GP to a Bonneville. Even better moving from ClubGP to BC.

I moved from a GP myself. Who cares if it was a beat-*** '90 LE with no options, 6 exterior colors, and a driver door that didn't do anything at all? I'm still a convert too, damnit.

Welcome aboard. I think you'll find a lot less BS going on here, less fighting and arguments, and just a nice comfortable feel to the forum. Not that CLubGP is bad, just a lot of bashing and BS than most want to deal with.

Yes, that is the one thing I already noticed. Seems a lot more civil and laid back over here. A little more adult like Anyway, I did find out what the color is called. It'* called "Granite"

Welcome Hvac, I bet you'll miss going from a 13 sec GTP to a slower Bonneville (for now of course..hehe) but the trade off is worth it. I sat in a 2000 SSEi today (considering one over my current car) and its great fun. And tts true, the interior of the Bonneville is more attractive then the GTP.

Good luck with the new car.
