Default Hello To All From New Bonneville GXP owner in TEXAS!

Hello! I came across this site when considering the purchase of my new 2005 Bonneville GXP. It is in the White Gold Tricoat with every available option. I had to fly out to northern Virginia to pick it up and made a 1,600 mile road trip home with it driving through Charlotte, NC to check out Dale Earnhardt, Inc. and Hendrick Motorsports along with Lowe'* Motorspeedway on the way back since I am a huge NASCAR fan. We love the GXP! Really happy I was able to get it and it was worth the trip to get this color along with all the options. Now I just have to find out how to make a few mods to bump the performance slightly and it will be all good. But unfortunately, the mods seem to be few and far between currently. Hard to believe since the LD8 Northstar setup has been around since 1994. Hopefully we can get the aftermarket to hear our cries for HELP! Thanks!

Welcome to BC!

As more GXP members start looking to modify and improve their cars, there might be an increase in aftermarket products. Even Bonnevilles have not been supported by the performance industry until more recently and a good part of that is an offshoot of the GP and F-car market.

Maybe you'll be the one to come up with the next great GXP mod!
