Russia. At us club fans of the American automobiles. At my friend and the partner too Bonneville 92 SE. (I Hope he soon to appear here.) we together repair them and we spend maintenance service. Unfortunately we do not have good experts in automobiles GM. In Moscow there is a GM representation, but their experts should be sent in Iraq for undermining economy. One Russian holds car-care center in NY. We consult at him on email and through forum.

LMAO That is a good Idea!!! Welcome to the forum (again). I believe you are the first International member from outside North America!!! Congratulations on finding this site! If you don't mind, I would like to post a subject in the Lounge regarding your membership! I think that way more people will get to know you.

PS, Is it snowing yet in Moscow? It is snowing and raining here in Michigan today. Nothing on the ground yet.

Thank. I don't mind. Now 12.20 AM. Behind a window it'* really it'* snowing.
I think, that outside Northern America not so it is a lot of Bonnevilles. It is the automobile for the internal American market. The European models are more popular in us, such as Mercedes, BMV. Many the Japanese automobiles with the right rudder, they are very cheap. IMHO, Pontiac, Buick and Oldsmobile do not enter on our market as have sufficient selling in US. The big motors not in honour in Europe. There the expensive gasoline. In Europe and in Russia many try to be engaged car tuning the European automobiles and Russian rust cans. It looks ridiculously. The natural automobile can be only American. Present car tuning too. It is a part of your national culture, a part of a way of life.
P.*. It is possible to understand that I write? At me a problem with English.

Gnes,

Your English is fine. Besides, being on this forum should give you practice with your English.

I was in Europe last November (a year ago exactly). I noticed that most of the cars are much smaller. There is nothing wrong with that, but in the U.*., you are right, bigger has always been better. Even our small cars are considered large in Europe.

It sounds as though you have a "rice" problem in Russia too! Owners of small cars trying to tune them into supercars. All you need to do is remember that no car is perfect--whether U.*. built, Japanese, European, or Russian, they all have problems from time to time. That is why we love them. Because we can fix them up, and in the process, make them better.

In any event, we are glad that you found our site.

To jwakamud

The Russian machine is considered normal if reaches from a factory to autoshop without repair. Any of them never will pass 160000 miles. On the European automobiles electric glass on forward doors are considered as an additional option). I shall not mention any more about the conditioner because it is considered a toy for rich people. And as it is all breaks.... And quality of painting....:(((
Yes, there are normal European machines, but their price is non-comparable with American at the same quality. It is possible to look the prices on www.mobile.de
In yours Bonnie, the gasoline pump, the generator, a tension roller and a pomp all over again will break. For 160000 miles it can be born
I I hope has correctly understood post ,

Gnes,

If I may ask, how did you come across a Bonneville in Russia? It sounds like an interesting story!

95BonnevilleSESC
In the spring 2001 to me the automobile of foreign manufacture wanted to buy 95-99 years of release. Back I lived some time in Mexico and there went on Olds, Caddy, Caprice enough. So my choice probably was generated on the basis of children'* impressions. From the European automobiles in embassy were Van WV and Mercedes. Comparison was obvious not in their advantage.
Before purchase Bonnie I went by all Russian automobiles, even on trucks.
On last Russian automobile for 25000 Mi I have changed coupling, the carburettor, a forward suspension bracket, the main brake cylinder (two times), a body has become covered by a rust. I have bought its new. From 2000 in Russia began release of automobiles with fuel ingected engines. It was unpredictable. The automobile could break in any place and at any time. On this I have finally rejected ideas about purchase of the Russian automobile and have decided to choose between Opel omega B and Chrysler Cirrus (Stratus).
Chrysler was more comfortable, but differed a unreliable suspension bracket and the engine. Opel … it sooner or later becomes any automobile .
Looking through announcements has found Bonneville. What is such I did not know. On photos it was similar on LHS. And the main thing, would be desirable me the American automobile in spite of on anything.
Then I have found out, that on reliability, maintainability and cost of spare parts it there was a best choice because GM is not Ford or Chrysler. But all over again it was terrible. Very much many dissuaded me. My automobile appeared in bad condition, but moved independently and rather quickly. In what way it has got to Russia it is not known. Most likely, it was brought by somebody from employees of embassy in USA. Now I try to restore it up to a normal condition.
