Makes sense to me.

What?
That's pretty normal for Germany, eh. :p
GIves new meaning to the term, "stay right, except to pass".
At least here in the States it would.
When it come to the rules governing driving and licensing, I'm afraid we're just "teenagers." Maybe, just maybe, we'll learn to wield power & responsiblity more effectively - say in about 50 years.
Can't wait! :(

Welcome Jamoleh, to quote Gene Wilder riding the bull in Stir Crazy, "I only have one speed, balls out". How stable was it at that speed? That red light on the dash would'nt happen to be an oil pressure light would it? :eek:

Maybe taking a picture of your speedometer at 155mph puts you in the realm of a madman :D But going 155mph is a no brainer if you got the horsepower.
Why get a V8 if you don't plan on testing its limits. My guess is the red light is the flash from the camera?

As I already pointed out - no seatbelt - that's the red light...

Hi there J and welcome,
I purchased my Mesh Grill from W/Center bar, B-pillars chrome parts for windows from Chris over @ aidi/egclassics and my wood dash kit from Noel @ woodtrimwarehouse. I must say I'm pleased with all the extras no problems here. Both including Free Shipping. Hope this helps! :) Don't forget about us Gals :)

Just curious Jamoleh, that 05 Lumina with the 5.7 V8 is not available in the states. Is this a Euro model with a RWD based on the Holden Manaro/GTO? Our Lumina is a FWD grocery getter with a transverse V6 but no V8. Our Malibu is a far better car but still no 5.7L. In fact, the Lumina is no longer available here, it's the Impala or Malibu.

The Chevy Lumina SS V8 5.7L is the Holden Commodore SS the Holden is the Australian Version (which by the way is the Original coz they make them there) with the right hand side steerring wheel & what they did they took it made it a lefty and put chevy tags on it and sent it to the middle east & by the way we only get it in Automatic gear here but in Australia they have it in manual which is more fun.
About the Monaro we get it here as a Chevy Lumina SS coupe and it also comes with the same V8 engine but also an automatic gear which is good but I would prefer the manual.
You can check for more info about those cars:

I am still waiting for them and I feel that a day is like a year for me but what to do they told me that the parts would be here in about three weeks.I also am thinking of buying the smoked tail lights but I searched & I couldn't find any so I am still wondering where to get them from + I am thinking of putting the GPS in it coz our full option 300C comes without a GPS coz the dealer wont order it so I have to get it from the U.S. so if anyone knows what parts are needed please tell me & which maps are compatible with it.
Any way still waiting and when I install the parts I am definitly gonna post some pics

jamoleh, I believe the software for the OEM 300 NAV/GPS system is based on continental U.S. mapping and won't function elsewhere, which may explain why the dealer wouldn't order it for you.

But here we have some companies that provide software,Like Garmin,Mercedes benz (thier own software which till now only works with thier cars but might work on chrysler but nobody tried it), BMW (thier own software only for thier cars), and some new companies which operates on PDA's. So it is confusing a bit if somebody would tell me what is capatible with the Chrysler's OEM 300 GPS I would be greatfull.
