Since I've made no formal announcement here, here it is.

In March I sold my 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix SE with 120,000 miles on it. A week later, I bought this:

A 2002 Chrysler 300M Special in Deep Sapphire Blue with the slate slate/light taupe two-tone interior. I bought it with 62,242 miles on the clock, and it now has 64,409.

Only mod so far is the front retractable license plate. Before I bought it, it was registered in Pennsylvania for its entire life. So, it had no front plate. The front bumper cover was flawless. The dealer gave me a front plate mount for use in NJ and told me how to install it. The moment he said to drill into the bumper, I threw the stupid thing in the backseat and forgot about it. Went online and bought a retractable license plate mount from Swift Motorsports and never looked back.

Plate up, just for you Johnny Law:

Hey, where'd it go?! :ghost:

It's been exactly four years since I had an LH. How's it hangin'? :jester:

Where'd you get that plate retractor? That's really hot. I was going to work on making one for my first gen... Mount it in the vent openings in the bumper, rather than below it, was what I wanted to do, off center to one side.

Sweet looking car!
.....A few too many menus to find the local WaWa,
Hahahahaha, that's funny... There's a WaWa on every corner from what I remember of the Princeton area of New Jersey!

but the sound is excellent. Definitely an improvement over my factory-installed RBB. Weird. Wasn't expecting that.

One thing I need to figure out is whether or not there is a night view. Used it to get to WaWa tonight to test the navigation function, and the thing practically lit up my interior. Maybe that's what was so disorienting... glancing from the dark scene in front of me, lit only by the HID headlamps, to the bright map display, and back.
Not having night mode would be a real bummer... I use night mode on my TomTom loaded HTC Kaiser at night - can't focus otherwise.
