really its good fun to add the options, best thing about buying a gli and doin different thing is that you learn heaps.

if u add all the things that are on a fairmont i dont see why it would be any different to a fairmont.

I have a manual and i wanna stick with manuals (love'em) so this limits me upgrading to a fairmont.
I've found the criuse control doc and it doesn't seem that hard (but u never know until you try).
I mainly wanted cruise control and wasn't really fussed with climate control just thought seeing as i would have to do some re-wiring i might look at doing that at the same time.

besides were's the fun in just simply buying another car to upgrade? who knows you could be buying someone else's problem.

I' rather sick with my car and enjoy the challenge of doing these things myself.

WELL now it has changed, and not u have a REAL point in not to get a farimont, cos u mentioned manual and there are no fairmonts with a manual, unless its optioned or moded..
