I cannot for the life of me remember my old username but I posted in here frequently until I lost my job and lost the car.... It was a love hate when it was taken back as I had bought it and within a week the engine went south, put an engine into it and it went south again within a week of getting it back from the shop... After that I bought an engine and swapped it myself. then the transmission went out and I replaced it with one from a 2004 (car was a 2002) had to get a PCM from a 2003 to make everything work with the wrong year transmission... but after that the car was good to go.... But in July of 2012 while I had just started a new job (which I am still at currently)

This time I am looking at doing things differently...

I kinda know what I am looking for...

I had an SLE... I think I would really like to step it up and find a SSEi or possibly a GXP. Not too familiar with the GXP's engine and drivetrain.

I want one that If it does not have satellite radio already in it that it can be retrofitted easily with GM parts to look as factory as possible. Would like to do GPS Navigation if it can be done with a factory radio though I know that is less likely. Also I am not afraid to travel if I need to in order to get what I am looking for. Suggestions greatly appreciated. And hopefully I can look back and find my posts from way back when and see if I can log into that account..

If you're willing to travel, hit up Andrew over at Bonnevilles Unlimited. He flips these cars all the time and can probably get you quite a nice car with most of the headaches addressed.

I have definitely thought about that. Though I may have found one about 100 miles from me it if is there by the time I can get there with the cash..
