Same rims?
Yeah it has the same rims, which was a huge plus for me. There was the same car there, but it had hub caps, a lot cheaper too, but I needed actual rims. They would look sweet in chrome! They make a billet grille for this car, it would look sweet but I may keep it stock. At first I didn't like the grill because it was so big (looks the the LHS grill...too big for the car) but I'm getting used to it. I like the back of it, I like what I am thiking about doing to the headlights, and the interior has a lot of potential.

Can't wait for that Anti-Bonneville Bonneville Club meet! Hell, I am leaning more towards Anit-GM as a whole...lmao.

That'* ok though, this will last me until I go GM again.

How is the fit and finish of the interior? What is the interior like? Does it feel tight? Any creaks, groans or misaligned trim pieces?

I've been lookin at a 300M Special, but I'm leary of the fine detals of Chrysler interiors. Seems the interior of the 300M (NOT C) is comparable to my car....I bet the smaller Chryslers make an attempt at a nice interior similar to the relationship between the Intrigue/Aurora...know what I mean?

It'* not about the car, but the person driving it...

and if we decide that you need a bonneville to be in here, she can borrow one of mine...
Thanks! You're great.
Jason on the otherhand, just likes to be on my bad side I think...I know you don't in any way, at all like my car, I'm good with it.

ON TOPIC (sorry). I love that car-it looks good in white. Its alot like (or identical to) the Stratus styling, which I love and wanted to get-so I mean that as a compliment. Good choice!

The interior is very nice IMO, for a base model sedan. It is tight-fitting, the seats are comfortable (Sebring has optional leather seats with suede inserts too. I test drove one with those). Gauges look nice, chrome trimmed bezels, plastic does not feel/look cheap. I like the interior better than the Alero I looked at in terms of dash and trim. Plus I've read about peoples' problems with the dash board wrinkling in the Alero. I don't have to worry about things like that with this car. I also noticed that in the Alero many of the buttons/switches were worn already. Both cars have the same miles too. I think GM probably did a half-a$$ job on the Alero from what I've read. The Aurora on the other hand, is much better.

I think my first mods are going to be in the interior. I'll probably add the leather wrapped shifter/ e-brake handle, chrome door handles, and other small accents.

I have a 60/40 split folding rear seat, 3 point middle seat belt (not that that matters to me really, just something different), two-tone black/light gray interior, power driver'* seat, CD player that looks AND sounds nice (buttons are not cheap looking). I'll show it to you soon. Until then, here are some sample photos....





PJ, thanks for the compliment I've always liked the newer Sebring/Stratus styling. I like the Coupe models too, but I prefer 4 door so I went with this. I am more partial towards the Sebring than the Stratus too. The styling is simpler and a little more refined (no extra taillight/reflectors on the back like the Stratus).

I've done some research on this car, and so far am very reassured, and impressed...both with what I've read, and with what I've experienced from the car. The only negative comments I have read about it have been minor. I have gotten feedback from Chrysler forums that there are no real common, serious problems with this car. Only thing one guy said was that the aluminum rims' clear coat can chip, but warranty covers it. Of course I will be learning more about it as time goes by, but I am happy with the car.
