Default Another new guy

Hey guys, I'm new here, just wanted to say hi. I SHOULD have my Bonneville this weekend provided my load goes through tomorrow

I'll be posting a bunch of questions soon, mainly about mods and the correct upkeep of this car

Even for a N/A 3.8 the car isn't a boat anchor, surprised me a little. Of course I wanted the SSEI model but eh, can't have everything

Is the 3.8 worth modding if its N/A?

I think your Bonnie is gonna surprise you! Comp and Turtle are probably the fastest NA Bonnies here, and Hector and Ty are both working on beasts. Our fastest member is in the 11'* in a 2000 SSEi, but I think some of the NA guys will get pretty close. You got questions, we got answers! Welcome to the forum!

Welcome aboard Tony,

Yes, your GTA is a great car, but so is your Bonnie. Have fun getting your GTA in order, but don't neglect your Bonneville. BTW, What trim level/year is it? Details, man, details!

Well I didn't get it YET, the loan will hopefully go through Monday.

It'* a SE with 68K miles after downpayment tax tags blah blah blah I'm walking out of the dealership with that car for 6K

Then again I hope the loan app goes through

As for neglecting the Bonny for the GTA it won't happen, I'm litte frustrated with the GTA right now so I won't be messing with it anytime soon...

I'll let you guys know Monday if I get it, if not the search will continue
