I have a 2000 SLE that had a mere 31k on it in Jan...obviously the previous owners admired it more than drove it. I've racked up 10k miles in 7 months and began to notice a sandblast effect on side molding (both sides) where it flares out after only 5k miles. I've never seen mud flaps on any other Bonnie....but seriously need to fix this problem before getting a new paint job. Anyone else have this problem?

Once I figure out how to add a picture here...I will!

The roadrash is not preventable and is more noticable on the darker colored cars. I never did put on mudflaps, but those "in the know" have advised they really wouldn't help the sandblasting much ....I can't afford a new paint job and have just learned to live with it.

Edit: And the knowledge learned about the lower intake gasket failures saved my engine...replaced them (and the uppers) when I first noticed coolant loss and found the leak.

im lookin to buy a performance air filter and of course i checked out the almighty K&N but they were like $55.which is alot for a kid with very little income at all.and i also so noticed that a K&N gives only a 4% increase in HP at max. which would be like 8HP in my car at redline.would i even be able to notice that? or is there an air filter better than K&N? i dont know too much about the mechanics of cars but i know i want mine to haul
thanks

HaHa, I read a bunch of my other posts and was crackin up. I knew next to nothing back then. I dont know a ton now, but back then I barely knew how to change my oil, and I was scared at the thought of making my own intake. My how times have changed.

I have some small age-related issues and will likely want to do some minor performance mods as time goes by, which explains my search for this site & forum. The 3800 is a great engine and deserves some special attention from me to tweak it a little and keep it running fine.
And my first non-intro post:

Truth will always be that you get what you pay for and volume / demand will control the economics
But, having read some of my other posts, I also showed a laughable lack of knowledge on the subject of the Bonneville, lol.
