Default 2004 Bonneville GXP

I bought this to replace my 98 Monte Carlo as my affordable, sporty, daily driver. Typically I buy a new DD every 5 years or so, and buy whatever I can afford to buy without taking out a loan. I spotted this beauty on craigslist two weeks ago while looking for GTP'* and Dodge Magnums. The price was right (6800), and the color was right, and it had the correct number of doors lol. It had somewhat high mileage, and a few scratches here and there, but no rust or other problems that I could see. I've put about 200 miles on it, and have been getting about 18 mpg during my mixed driving commute to work, and the old Monte Carlo was only getting my 19-20 mixed driving, so the gas hit wasnt bad at all to go to a V8 daily driver. The Monte would do much better than the GXP on highway trips, but that a small price to pay IMO.

Hmm, I don't mind the badge on the back but it'* all a matter of opinion. Gunner spent a long time converting his SSEi over to look like a GXP, they are great looking cars.

Nice car. I want one of these, I think they are very stylish.

I like the red GXP badges, but I'm indifferent about the one on the trunk.

Personally, I think it clutters that area up a little bit.

Sharp looking GXP. I shaved the Bonneville of my rear like that one, but didn't think to replace it with a GXP one. Wondering what GXP trim level model that came off,.... not a Bonneville.
