Probably not the best pics--hopefully I've done this right. Between having a semi cheap camera and dialup connection can't do anything too fancy but hopefully you'll get the idea :)

It's a beautiful car, but then, aren't they all ;)

I second the color comment... I like it though. :hail:
Nice SLE! I love the 2005's because its a good combo; GXP looks :sadeyz: and the 3800, and that equals a car that will grow on you
In my case anyway...

Thanks. It's super clean inside and out. According to AutomotiveTouchup.com the color is called Cashmere Metallic. We hadn't seen one that color either. It's pretty though.

I have a softy spot for the 05 SLE's. I just wish I could load it up with a SC3800 then I'd hit one all night long.

Just curious. Has anyone swapped a SC3800 into an 05 SLE yet?

The car looks great! Like others said, very unique color really sets it apart!

What brand tire are you running? How do you like them? I think I'm going to be needing tires on mine next summer and starting to do a little research...

Thanks to everyone for the kind words :)

Our Bonny is wearing Goodyear Eagle All Season tires, 235/55ZR17.
They are what came with the car. We've only had it a week so don't know if they're truly "all season" or not. Since they seem to be in good shape, we'll be finding out. Seem to be giving a nice ride and we're pleased with them. I would also like to have opinions on tires for when we have to buy them :)

Beautiful Bonneville. Maybe it's just the lighting, but looks like an odd color but that thing shines well!
