Good to hear, those mats can be spendy to replace.

Great looking Bonne. Looks like we are not too far from each other.

Well, this is my first car that has had less than 86k miles on it. I did it right with this one! I paid $19k for it with 24k miles and that included tax, title, license and a 5yr or up to 75,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. I believe that the pads are not covered, but the rotors are. Please correct me if I am wrong. I am very new to bumper-to-bumper warranties (or any warranty for that matter).

What else should I make sure to have checked? They have already replaced (today actually) the intermediate shaft on the steering rack so that is out of the way for awhile. Anything else?

Oh and I like these rims a lot! I do like some of the straight 5 spoke rims, but with the new car, loan and all, I don't know if I will be able to swing new rims until after the loan is paid off (60 months). We'll see how good old NY winters treat the rims.

I had 16" steel rims on my intrepid with snow tires for the winter and would like to do the same with the Bonnie, but am having a hard time coming up with some 16x7 rims that will fit. My intrepid uses 5x114.3mm (5x4.5in) rims and I believe that the Bonnie uses 5x115mm (5x4.527in) rims. I would like to keep those rims with the snows on them, but I don't think they will fit... What are your thoughts on this? Let me know.

BTW, here are my Chevelle and my Intrepid (this was my sig pic over on DI.net):

WOW, I paid $18k for mine with 32,000 and no bumper to bumper . The rims should hold up fine, I live on cape cod and our winters suck almost as bad as yours do, plus i got the salt air to eat away at everything else. Rims have held up fine, but then again i keep after them with 'never dull' polish.
