Default Thinking of replacing your bonneville anytime soon?

I'm seriously thinking about it, I still love the bonneville line, but I think it'* time to try something new. Plus I really need something that has something that can tow.

Down the line I'll pick up a SSEi and go mod happy,I'm just thinkning that even if I do an L67 swap in the ol girl I'm still going to want all the extras that an SSE or SSEi has that I don't (leather, HUD, ect.)

Ideally I'd like to keep my current SLE when I get an SSEi (I'm thinking within the year since I graduate college in December) but if I can't for financial or space reasons I'll have to let her go. If that happens I'll REALLY push hard to sell to a member of the club so I know the car will be taken care of.

You need a poll option for "No" (don't plan on doing it soon but will someday)

Planning on paying it off soon though... don't care to have 2 car payments between the Bonneville and T&C
