Default New GXP Owner!!

hello everyone!! just wanted to stop in after i registered. i just bought my first bonneville. it'* a 2005 GXP and i am almost in love after having it only a week. i've always liked the bonneville line and was fortunate enough to have my last car(2002 chevy impala) totaled in an auto accident. when i saw this car, and engine, i was sold!! already have my radar detector and sirius installed. now i just have to get my orion 12 inch subs into the trunk and take a look around here to see what else i can do, as well as what everyone else is doing!! i'll be seeing you guys around!!

yea, the manual. under the trailer towing section, there is one line for the 4.6 V8. it says "do not tow a trailer with the 4.6 liter V8 engine". thats it, one sentance, then goes to the next catagory which is towing with the V6. i talked to my dealer and they said there should be no problems, but i think i still want that in writting or even have them install it!!

Install an extra transmission cooler to be safe if towing is what you're gonna be doing. Seeing a trailer hitch on such a nice car...I dunno....

But hey, welcome to BC.
