    I definitely will. It's amazing how much the 04+ GP's are so much nicer than the 97-03's. Plus I get OnStar free for a year LOL.

    I've never been a massive fan of the Grand Prix, but that actually looks like a bit of fun and it definitely has some bold american styling. Enjoy

    Thanks. It is a lot of fun to drive. I loved driving my old GP but this one is light years ahead in driving experience. I like the color black too but you have to wash it and look after it more which is fine.

    Congrats on the new car purchase.
    Off topic a little bit, but what does the Green N sticker mean? I saw those all over Victoria, BC when i was in Canada so i thought to ask since you have it there on your car and you're Canadian. Thanks

    Re: My new Grand Prix

    In BC we have what's called a Graduated Licensing Program. The rules have changed over the years on the regulations but it's a 3 stage program and they impose limitations on your driving and slowly remove them as you go through the stages until you get your regular license.

    So first you get your L or Learner's License which you take a knowledge test for and must display a red L sign. When I got my L the rules at the time were you have it for 1 year or 9 months if you take a driving school program so I went with Young Driver's. You have to drive with an adult at all times and may have an additional passenger and you couldn't drive between midnight and 5 am, zero blood alcohol etc.

    Then I took a roadtest to get my N or novice license which I passed and then I have to display a green N sign for 2 years (I have just over a year left) and can only have 1 passenger along with me unless it's an adult then I can have the max allowed in my car or immediate family, zero blood alcohol etc. At the time that I got it I didn't get any time reductions because I got it with my L but now with the N you can get a reduction on the time if you go with a driving school program.

    Then I'll have to go for a final roadtest to get my regular or Class 5 license.

    Nice ride man! I have always been pretty fond of a nicely equipped Grand Prix, and it looks like you have a nice example here!
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    Thanks. I originally wanted one with the 5 Button DIC, but the 3 buttons got plenty of stuff to play around with. I especially like the tire pressure monitor, it's a great feature.

    thanks then! That's neat. We have something similar to that in Texas. We get a permit at the age of fifteen after passing a written test, with that you have to have a licensed adult in the front seet. After recieving a permit, you have to wait atleast six months until you can get a license. So if you are already sixteen and late to get in driving school, you still have to wait six months, and you have to be sixteen to get a license. So after you get your license you have to wait another six months until you can drive with 2+ people outside of your family in the car. Once six months is up you can drive with as many people outside of your family you can buckle up. We don't have any sticker thing though so before my six month period was up i of course snuck around loads of people in my tahoe. The license though says what your restrictions are and what not, so if i got pulled over, i would have been screwed. Thanks again for telling me that though, pretty neat idea BC has.

    Most people around here hate it. It has a good purpose but you have to spend like $100 each time for the roadtest and license.
