OKay so question. What color "Forever Pontiac" decal should I get for the rear window? The Phoenix has a red one. But since this car is red... I'm not sure whats really accents it.

Congratulations on your awesome new Pontiac, Havoc... she's a beauty!

I NEVER see these Bonneville GXPs, it's got to be quite rare. It's hard to find production numbers for late model GM cars for some reason.

I don't know what colors the sticker comes in, but I would stick with red since it matches the car, white would be good also.

Thanks guys! I was thinking just White because the red will most likely be a non matching red and I know that would bother me. White looks good on any color

Thanks 87. I was super lucky to find it. I still can't get over how nice this car is. I just washed and waxed it. Its just a damn good looking car. Wheels are probably my favorite thing about the exterior

I wish the arrow head on the front wasn't faded. It really bothers me. Phoenix was the same way when I got her and it was the first thing I replaced, but that was a bolt-on not a stick-on

Havoc congrats on your new ride. I got to test drive a Bonneville with a Northstar V8 in it back at the GTO convention in 2004. It was a helluva ride back then! You won't be disappointed.

BTW what model year is it?

Thanks Frosty. No disappointment so far! Driving has become fun again. Its a 2005. 160xxx miles and its (as far as I know) never had the headbolt issue which, if it was going to happen, would pop up at like 80-100xxx

 

The only issues I've found so far is 1 2 3 on the radio has the backlights burnt out just like my Grand Prix haha and like 3 of the dash\steering wheel buttons are flaking a bit from being pressed so much over the years.

 

Interior is immaculate. Just as good as the exterior.

Havoc have you checked Reflective Concepts for a front badge cover? You can get any color on either the inner color or the border. I used them on the front badge for my old 02 blue GP and was very happy. I test drove a GXP Bonnie back in the spring with less miles than yours but the front suspension was just too tired and it just didn't have the power I thought it would have. I swore my N/A 3.8 was quicker. It had to have been just that car, because I always hear rave reviews, including yours, on the driving experience of the GXP Bonnies and the one I looked at just failed. Good luck, and I may just join you in the GXP Bonnie club someday. BTW, what happened to the GP you had? Haven't been on here in awhile so I may have missed that

The headlight relay in the fuse box burned up. I put it out before it spread beyond the fusebox. GM offered me $3600 to take it or theyd fix it completely free of charge. I decided to take my chances with the money.

 

You know, funny thing is that my GP (with the 3.8 N/A) felt like it had more giddy up, but now that I actually thinkg about it the GXP just feels more sluggish because the acceleration is so smooth. I think I'm going 30 and I look at the speedometer and its pushing 50 and Im like "wtf?, no way I'm going that fast"

I thought about the overlay but I like the look of the debossed crosshatch
