Default New Car, Got A Few Questions...

I picked up another Bonneville a few weeks ago to beat back and forth to work (82 miles round trip), and I'm curious as to what can be done to perk it up. It'* currently got 38,000 miles on it, and I installed a drop in K&N, new fuel filter, and Mobile 1 5W30 synthetic. What can be done to wake it up a little, as well as possibly boost the mpg? I really don't want to swap exhausts, but the few CAI systems I've seen seem to disclude the '05s (like the Intense kit lists the applicable model years as '97-'04). Also, anything to keep an eye on, or be aware of as possible issues? (The lights on my radio are partially burned out, and I've read about leaks and a few other issues as well).

Thanks,

Mark

The 00-04 FWIs should work for you. Keep an eye on that LIM (shouldn't be anywhere near failing right now, but its a good idea to keep watch on it). Get Dex out of there as soon as you can.

And that'* all I got to offer.
