Default New member, why I love my Bonneville....sticker????

Hey, I'm new to the forum, so I'm just saying hey and asking a few questions. I got a White 2000 Bonneville SE about 4 weeks ago after months of trying to sell my car. Here'* how the story goes. So for about 6 months, I had been trying to rid myself of my 2000 Honda CR-V. It was great when I first got it, but I got tired of it and wanted something nicer and faster, so I began looking at Grand Prix'*. I listed the CRV on ebay 3 times with bids no higher than $6000, and listed it on autotrader.com and my local paper. So I spent around $300 trying to sell the thing. The reason it wouldn't sell is that it had 2 wrecks and 4 owners in its history, but it had a clear title and only 43k miles and was in great condition. Local dealers said they could only give me about $4000 for it. So one day, I was bored and decided to go to the Honda dealership and see if there was a way to get it Honda certified since I knew it was in good condition. When I drove up to the dealership, I saw my baby. It was in a line of Buick century'* and le sabre'* and whatnot. Sticker price was $10,995. The salesman was all over me trying to make his first sale at his new location. I asked what he'd give me on a trade in for the CRV. He said he'd get someone to look at it. I test drove the Bonneville in the mean time, and told him the reason the CRV wouldn't sell. He said, and I quote, "If you don't say anything, I won't." I got back, and he had the numbers......$2600 difference. That was $2500 more than my highest offer for my car, so I jumped on it. They let me take it home that night, and it was mine the next afternoon.
It'* a white SE with 44,000 miles, tan leather interior (he said Corinthian leather, but I don't know if that'* right or not, but I love to tell my friends it is), dual power seats, dual digital climate control, keyless entry, and all the other Bonneville amenities.
The things I love the most about my Bonneville:
LEATHER!!!!
Working heater and A/C
Power seats
Quick and smooth acceleration
NO POPPING SOUNDS, like I've had in both of my previous cars
GM Certified w/short lived warranty
Sport shifter
Tire Pressure monitor
Hydraulic or at least spring loaded hood, trunk, ash tray and cupholder cover
Engine rumble that you can be proud of
HUGE trunk
SEXY!!!!!!!!!!!
The things I don't like about my Bonneville:
Ridiculously hard to install a radio
Ridiculously hard to run wires
That'* all.....
Current and coming very soon mods:
Eclipse 8443 Head unit
Eclipse Commander Advance
RF Power BD 1000.1 amp
RF Power HX2 15" sub
Power inverter
Black Light
Reflective lettering
Remote Start, not sure what brand
Radar Detector, not sure what brand
Factory Dual Exhaust with electric cutouts
20% Charcoal Tint
Bonneville Decal for side and front windshield
Xenon bulbs for all headlights
LED lit shifter position
PLUS MANY OTHERS THAT I'M FORGETTING, AND MANY MORE THAT AREN'T SO NEAR IN THE FUTURE
A few questions:
So I saw this pimp bonneville club sticker on someone'* site on Sounddomain. Where can I get one of those?
Also, how do I get entered into the database with my car'* info and whatnot?

Thanks for all the replies and the warm welcome to the bonneville club.
Hey MOS95B, that second sticker is the one I was talking about....the one that says 3800 Powered with the Pontiac arrowhead. If you know how I can get in contact with Crazydriver868, that'd be awesome.

His profile is at
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...wprofile&u=908

I don't think he has any more right now, but he has hinted at the possibilty of getting some made again. The orginal batch were 12 dollars each, just so'* ya know. The next batch (according to the brainstorming he'* done online) won't be exactly the same, either.

Check this thread for what little info there is...

I think he was talking about using a different font. The tips of my letters are just starting to lift off the glass. They're a tad too fine. Not sure if mine will live to the July West Coast meet.
