Default Just Purchased - 2001 Bonneville SSEi

Ok so I posted into the My Ride section first... Anyway, I will be a Bonnie driver Monday, March 29, 2004 as that is when I am picking the car up!

About the car:
All the option boxes checked and only 24k miles! Comes with bumper-to-bumper warranty until 5yrs or up to 75k miles. Also comes with tinted windows!

Here'* some pictures that the dealer took for on Autotrader.com:








I will take some better pictures when I get it home, but for now, this is all I have to go on! I just can't stop looking at these pictures!

Tell me what you think!

No trade... Sorry.

I just picked up the car tonight. The drive home was as nice as any drive I have ever had. The power of the L67 keeps a wide smile across my face and the rest of the bells and whistles ensure that it will not be leaving anytime soon! The tint that was installed is just right (actually legal % in NY) not too dark for me and not light enough to make it look like it doesn't have tint.

My Intrepid had decent power, but nothing compared with this. The Bonneville actually looks smaller than the Intrepid, but feels much bigger on the inside.

It is supposed to rain here for the rest of the week, but I'll get some more pictures taken as soon as I can. Those posted above were from the dealerships Autotrader.com listing. I'll get some better shots when weather permits. I'll have to take some while it'* raining as well.

Thanks for the compliments. I really don't have much by way of plans right now. What can be done that would not void the warranty? This is my first experience with a bumper to bumper warranty (next 5 years or up to 75,000 miles b2b). I have a K&N cone filter that I was using on my Intrepid for awhile that should be great on the Bonneville, but I want to do it up right. Let me know, thanks again!

Bummer to hear about the trade...

The cone filter probably wont fit, unless you checked it out allready. Make sure to keep the paint on her shining! Nothing looks better than a swirl free, spot free black Bonneville cruising down the street!

Well, the cone filter is a 3" outlet and is 6" long, so I would think that it would fit whatever pipe I would put on, so long as it is 3" on the filter end. BTW, where are you guys getting your intake tubes from?
