I may be against the crowd, but I think that looks 100% better than the last generation for the Bonneville. It looks aggressive and looks like it has good interior quality, which the Bonneville was severely lacking in its last years. It'* sporty and luxurious and reminds me of a BMW. It has the looks, and the luxury, and sporty edge.

HUD is nice, but not nearly as important as the driving dynamics.

This car is RWD, and has a MUCH better suspension design and tuning then any US mid-large sized Pontiac sedan ever. It'll have 3.6, and a LS2 from what we can tell.

And blaupunkt isn't bad, They make a lot of Audi OEM systems some are labeled some aren't. A lot of their original US aftermarket stuff wasn't good, but they do have some good stuff.
