Oldsmobile Intrigue Accessories & Modifications
Just thought I'd get things going here.
Didn't have the Bose and didn't like the stock unit, especially the word Oldsmobile written on it. Not that the sound was bad, it just wasn't impressive. So, I replaced it with a Pioneer DEHP4100 for about $218 installed if I remember correctly. Incredible, even with the stock speakers. Detachable face, tiny remote control, DFS alarm, etc. The audio functions are great with indepth, multi-level tuning to set the sound exactly as you like. No longer have control from the steering wheel but I like the tiny remote better anyway. Very functional in the right hand while driving and controls a bunch of functions. Don't need an amp or different speakers.
Future mods/upgrades: Struts will be in the trash as soon as I get the nerve and motivation to do it, plus, I'd like to do the tires at the same time and I've only got 12K on this car. I wish I could see the bare bones of my drive train, chassis, and suspension system to get a better idea of exactly how different struts would eliminate the harsh ride. So far, the way I see it is this. Buick Regal and Intrigue weigh the same and use identical springs. Regal ride is comfortable, mine is harsh. The only thing I can think of is the difference being in the struts. However, I've been told not to look for ride improvement in the struts, only dampening ability? I want my suspension to absorb the road, not just dampen the trauma after the fact. So... I guess I'm waiting for a little more assurance that a strut replacement will make a difference at least commensurate to the cost.
Also interested in Cat-Back and Strut Tower Braces. Maybe a K&N down the road.
