I picked up a few new car catalogues at Buick last week. Naturally the
05 Park Avenue catalogue is similar to the 2000 - 2004 catalogues with
the same dark, blurry, cropped and extremely close up photographs that
do nothing to impress me of a car that I may be interested in
purchasing. Do we really need to have a camera zoom in 1 inch from the
side of the seat showing the stitching. NO.
Show me a full width photo of the backend sporting the new taillight
The LaCrosse, being a new model car has a better selection of photo's.
But there are some clinkers in there too.
Two things I read in the LaCrosse catalogue indicate a new die cast
aluminum intake manifold for the 3800 engine and
High Intensity Halogen Headlights:
LaCrosse also uses a four bulb burn configuration, with two high beam
lamps and two high intensity halogen low beam lamps coming on whenever
the high beams are turned on.The result is greater nightime visibility
imediately ahad of LaCrosse and bright uniform illumination further down
the road. ( quote from the Catalogue ).
Seems like the old technology is coming back. Why GM knocked the low
beams off in the 90's when the high beams were on,
is beyond me.
