Default Well now I have got a RRROORRAA of my own.

Oh man its sweet car, too bad can't drive yet cz of some insurance problems, but will get tons of pics probably tomorow. Just to fresh your memory its a black 97 Oldsmobile Aurora with 190,000 km on it. For now the only problem that I have found was a mulfunction of one of the buttons that controls the driver seat, otherwise everything works great (tuk,tuk,tuk).


P.*.
I am still true to my Bonne and won't trade it almost for anything.

Any combination of city/hwy should net you bout 12L/100kms. Hwy anywhere from 8L-10.5L/100kms, city alone 15-16L/100 kms.

Its a very fuel efficient car for its size, just rememeber she needs premium dood..premium! dooood! (lol..Snake from the Simpsons)

The power seat, I cant say for sure, sit tight til I get my GM factory manual, I suggest you get one as well, the 99 version is THREE VOLUMES!

Ready for class? :P
