Please no offense, but they better hurry if they ship to North America, GM is discontinuing the Pontiac brand after this model year I think, they just sent me a letter saying that as a new Pontiac owner I was part of a long and proud tradition....Blah Blah Blah.....and not to worry my 5 years warranty was still valid.....Blah Blah Blah.....But the thing is a POS anyway, front rotors shot at 8,000 miles,rear not very good, air whistling around the doors........
I don't think I would want one of their OEM fuel pump on my bike.....sorry just venting....!
But for a funnier one on that,I see by your bio that you drove quite a few police vehicles.
My father was a Chevy dealer, and in the very early seventies we sold a lot of police cars,the Quebec Provincial Police decided to order them with Big Block 454 instead of their usual 350's to try to catch up with all the fast cars coming out of Detroit at the time, but someone on the assembly line decided that they probably did not need all that power and restricted the Intake and Exhaust manifolds. Top speed was....107 miles an hour.
I was getting better than that on my 69 Impala 350 with 200,000 miles on it
We sure had some good laughs about that in the shop, and quite a few test rides where we also "tested" the lights and sirens on the back roads......
So what can I say but thanks for reminding me about it.....
