erslincoln,

welcome to the club... Sounds like the SSEi was a good step in the right direction...

I used to Live in Omaha a long time ago

Welcome to the club! I also upgraded when I got my Bonne. It feels good doesn't it?

Yeah, I guess I could have been a little less vague.

I'm from Lincoln, and currently I work for the cable company in the commercial broadband department.

I'm doing lots of digging on mods. I'd like to have all of my ducks in a row before I do anything. Not much of a risk-taker, since I just can't afford to be. The goal is mostly to absolutely maximize stock performance and efficiency vis a vis exhaust/intake/ignition/pulleys.

As far as cosmetic/style mods, I'm mostly focusing on restoring and protecting.

Exhaust - replacing the so-so exhaust tips with some chrome ones of similar shape.
Paint - removing previous owners custom scratches and swirls.
Tint - well, of course.
Interior - getting all of my gear mounted: cell, XM, CB, GPS, iPod
Audio - not much here initially, aside from a simple but effective sub/amp/high-pass filter setup with the stock deck, since I really like how the wheel/HUD/SCV and all that ties together.
Wheels/Tires - Being really careful not to go ghetto with the look, since I can't STAND that, I'm being choosy with aftermarket wheels and tires. While this is always a subjective topic, I really want mine to stand out, and I found a set of 20" wheels I think would do that, without making the car look like a drug dealer'*, which is way too easy to do with a wheel that big on a car.

Other than that, I'm really glad to be part of the forum, and I look forward to using the knowledge base.

Thanks for the warm welcomes!

Yeah, I can't get over how nice it is. I mean, the girlfriend'* granddad'* got this '89 DeVille she likes to borrow, and I hate driving that thing, even though it rides well.

It'* nice to drive something that feels large, sturdy, but still pretty nimble.

Can't wait to stick some nice, wide meats on it and make it stickier.

It'* just the right smoothness level for me, too. Smooth enough to be comfortable, but not so that you feel detached from the road.
