Sold my Intrigue yesterday, then I went to the dealer and got a brand new 09 Malibu last night ;)

Need to start planning mods. :laughing3:

This is totally unfair. Awesome purchase. What's your other car? BMW 850, this Malibu, your Bonneville, and what else?

I've been doing IT and web design, and I don't have nearly enough to pay in cash for a new Malibu. Apparently, British Columbia is a more active web design area. That, and I get to see your 850, Malibu, and the new car. So, why are you selling the Bonneville? I think you should instead take it apart in your driveway and let it sit like that for a while. :wink:

It's the software development that gives me the most money. I can't afford to have a bonneville sitting in my driveway dead, it would be too hard to shuffle vehicles ( I have 4 + a trailer so..

More Pics:
Apparently my dog likes the car..

Now this is pretty cool.. there's two lights up in the roof that light up the middle part of the dash..

WAIT A SECOND WHAT ARE THOSE COVERS DOING THERE :( (Going to try to remove them tomorrow I like to see my engine..)

REALLY thinking about going buying a Hybrid Tahoe tomorrow and trading in my old tahoe (Would have to take out a loan)

Isn't that the 3.5L V6? That engine cover is pretty easy to take off, but it connects the throttle body to the intake box. It goes air filter box, rubber tube, engine cover, throttle body.
