Doesn't this look a bit like the new Chevy Malibu (albeit much nicer looking and a bit more elongated)? Not saying it isn't good looking, i'm just not seeing the evolution of the 9-5.... Kermit... any thoughts?

I agree. The new 9-3 evolved nicely. That pic looks nothing like the 9-5. It's like BMW. They did not change the 3-series too much but they totally *******ized the 5-series (as well as the 7-series) from its roots.

I have the same wheels and just got them refinished, they look great! What size center caps do you have? Or better yet.....do you have a part #? The caps from my 16" wheels fit but have a 1/16" to a 1/8" gap around the edge of the cap where yours seem to fill the center hole of the wheel. I'm on the stock lpt suspension and looking at a tire size of 235/45/17, do you think that I will have a rubbing problem with that size or should I go with a 40 series tire?. Thanks for any input!

Side note: 235/40/17s on 8" wide BBS wheels do not fit in the fenders! But my god it looks awesome, I just need to find a fender roller now.

Nice. What do you have in the fog lights? I just bought one of those hokey HID kits on eBay last night for my '04 Aero that didn't come with factory Xenons... Hopefully it's decent.

I have 6000k headlights (OEM HID housings) and fog lights. The fogs are an H8 bulb I believe. The kit I got was plug and play and has never had any issues. I suggest electrical tape around the connectors and zip ties to ensure no wires are hanging loose. I secured the balasts in the engine bay just with zip ties. Let me know if you run into any issues with your kit.

The '04-'05 9-5 Aero sedan will always be the best looking 9-5. Thanks for the pictures.

Meh I'm still stuck with my 01 95 aero auto. I've seen some 03's for like 8 gs with around 70k, then I saw an 04 with 28k for 11gs.. I tell you what though.. finding a manual is SO HARD!


as soon as I get my car looking nice I'll post a pic

I can't imagine what your neighbors were thinking watching you hop around your driveway with a florescent light stick. Yee-hah!! But that is one sweet picture. I am impressed.

That should have been the 99 9-5 advert.
