Default New Monte Carlo owner

I just traded my 03 Bonneville in for an 06 Monte Carlo LT a few days ago. I looked at a few other cars first, including another Bonneville, before deciding on the Monte. My Bonne was a great car, she had almost 200K on her, it was just staring to become one problem after another, which is the reason why I traded. Anyways, this Monte Carlo has been well taken care of, and I think I will enjoy it just as much as I did the Bonneville.

They almost look like "chrome" versions of the stock LS wheels to me. Maybe they were part of an appearance package?

Actually, yes the wheels are oem. The chrome is really a plastic wheel cover. I thought they were actual rims at first.

No major mods right now. I do want to install an aftermarket stereo, and my amp with two 12 inch subs from my Bonneville. I also thought about replacing the interior lights with LEDs.

dont do like i did and try taking the whole dash apart, the trim around the radio just pops off but it feels like you are going to break it.
