I snapped a few pictures at the end of April, the same day I got my car back from the detailing shop. I'm not as crazy about the exposure as I'd hoped, but here they are anyway...

Seeing a real nice example like yours makes me think i could find room in my life for a GXP. I don't think there are any in the UK though!

Beautiful car!! And I love all of the features you've added in so seamlessly. Just AWESOME!!!

...not a fan of the PVD-chromed GXP wheels, but that's just me, they still looks great!

Easily the cleanest Bonneville out there.

However, I'm glad that I lowered mine. I forgot how high they ride in stock form.

Looks amazing. I like the chrome wheels. I wish my GXP had heated seats lol.

Very clean, my headlights are slightly fogged/scratchy

ShaaWING! Very, very nice. I could be looking at the October COTM here. I like shiny things, so I give the chromium wheels a hearty :headbang2:

How do you manage to keep it so clean without a garage attached to your house?

Awesome looking ride you have there. I love all the subtle interior upgrades you did such as the rear heated seats, moving the "trac off" button and making a heated washer fluid button. Definitely one of the cars on the forum that gives me ideas of things I wish I could figure out how to do...

Thanks for the compliments everyone. Still working on a few little things but the majority of what I want to do is complete. It's going to get spoiled this winter and go into heated, indoor storage. First time since it was a new car that it didn't have to park in the harsh elements.

That is the Bose Luxury sound system from an Escalade (2003-06 vintage) which includes both the touch screen navigation and different amplifier that has Digital Sound Processing capability. What's nice is that it is directly compatible with the existing steering wheel controls, 12-Disc CD changer and XM radio module made for the Bonneville. The down side is that it doesn't broadcast information to the Head-Up Display, nor does is display the called number on the screen when using OnStar. Neither of which concern me a lot. The back lighting for the navigation radio buttons was changed to match the rest of the Pontiac controls.

Did you do a thread on the center console lighting or rain sensing wipers?

I never really did a good write-up on the RainSense, although I may throw something together in the next few weeks. As for the center console courtesy lamp, here's the thread...

How To - Center Console Courtesy Lamp

EDIT: Link Fixed.
