Default GTP guy looking for Bonne stuff.

I wanted to introduce myself before I started asking questions.

My name is Vinnie DiRenzo and I have been a member of the National GP forum since 2000 and I'm a current member of Greater Ohio Club Grand Prix, GOClubGP. I drive a 97 GTP that I have been doing suspension/braking upgrades on recently and I'm researching upgrading to some GXP brakes.

I have a few questions that I'll post here and start searching around for info as well.

1) I'm assuming the front brakes on the Bonne and GP GXP are the same part #?
2) Is there an "Ed Morad" of Bonneville parts? Ed is our used parts guy. He can get us pretty much and GP part.
3) Anybody want to sell a set of front GXP brakes?

Well thats all for now.

Billboost37 is our good parts guy. Most of his stuff comes from junkyards. Not too many GXP'* are showing up yet, though.

Stricker Auto Parts USA-OH(Batavia) --- 1-800-582-5405

Has 4...yes 4 2004/2005 Bonnie GXPs.


all list both rotors available..this should mean other parts are available.

Also keep in mind the Caddilac STS uses the same brakes as the GXP

DO NOT MAIL ORDER GXP BRAKES FROM STRICKER AUTO!!!

They are not GXP brakes. I just drove down there this afternoon after I called and was told they had "many in stock" and they brough out Non-drilled rotors and black cast calipers. Needless to say I'm a bit annoyed after driving 1.5hr each way to go there.

I just picked up mine today for $346.12
I was told the car hardly had double digit miles on it before it got front end totaled, and they look it. Rotors look almost untouched.

I am deffinitly taking the ugly brackets off for powder coating before they go on.

Now I just need the new pedal and a new set of pads.
