Default Well, it'* official...

I'm selling the Bonneville! I'm purchasing a 1994 Infiniti Q45 with the money from the sale, and a $700 profit! I'll ***** up the new ride on Saturday morning when I pick it up.

Where'* the whorage of your current car?

You're really going to miss the Bonneville. I remember you made some arguments for more gas mileage, but the Q45 doesn't have better mileage than the Bonneville, as far as I know. Is the $700 profit going towards performance?

The profit and cheaper insurance is going towards gas (and a new phone).

I just looked up the Q45 for 94, and that'* the lessened, slower version but with cushier seats and a wood grain trim. Go look at your Bonneville. Enjoy it. Isn't it nice? Plus, I don't recall that you've yet experienced the white curse.

Yes, but the 94 is also the one that doesn't have the timing chain guides that like to fall apart at 120k and destroy the engine, and therefore require replacement immediately upon purchase. The insurance on the bonne is 70/mo, on the Q is 45/mo. And besides, Radomir knows I'm already planning the next bonneville I will purchase.

Yeah, 94 doesn't have the problem with the guides. Unfortunately, they have the injector problems, which seem to be persistent, even with new injectors. I almost bought a '94 Q45 a while back, but it needed injectors, and a water pump. On the other hand, they do have VVT, and make 278hp. Also one of the best sounding Import DOHC V8s I have ever heard.

Shouldn't this be in the lounge because it'* a Q45 discussion?

I have a friend with a '94 Q45. We averaged her gas mileage one night and it came out to be around 11 mpg. And that was after a recent tune up. Her engine burns oil and the repair costs are just incredible. PLEASE keep your Bonneville. Don't make the same mistake I did

Sure, but that doesn't mean you can't continue to own a Bonneville! However, I'm looking forward to that next Bonneville. It'll be so freaking awesome!
