I just picked up a 99 olds intrigue gx real cheap. Has 193,000 miles but doesn't feel it at all. Still not home yet I have to get plates and a ride over to it. Has the 3.8 which apparantly only went in some 99s, and 99 was the first year. (?) The "olds" 3.5 went in the rest of them and is apparantly northstar/aurora derived and not the gasket blowing 60-degree piece of junk. But I have the trusty 3.8. The car looks like a million bucks but I can't figure out what "GM" it is. That's a good thing. My best guess is it's a W-body like the grand prix and buick regal. Thankfully the rear discs have the "top hat" style e-brake with the little parking brake drum in the middle. I've heard horror stories of the older rear calipers and hope I'm immune. Apparantly it'll need a hub/bearing in front to pass state inspection; it seems tight to me but we'll see. The part crosses to some minivans which make me feel like it's heavy duty. The price is heavy duty too. The rotors actually look like they have some metal to them; hurray GM. Will check the RPO codes to see if I have the "autobahn brakes" (edmunds' term). It feels snug, like an excellent driver's car. Lots of widgets on the steering wheel and around the cockpit. Anyway any good resources for this vehicle? I like GM as much as the next guy and was psyched to find this (I need an automatic "beater" for some houseguests) and this seems to surpass their usual parts-bin engineering.
