I'll start this thread to post some good & medium quality pictures of our new Acadia, plus whatever else may happen to be in frame when the picture is taken!

First day, at the dealer:











I really felt at home & encouraged after I turned on the radio: :p



On the way home:




First wash (I found out my camera does not work so well at dusk- the rest were worse than these!) :

Hey, Blue, that's a sharp lookin' rig you have there. That color was one of me and the wifey's top 3 choices as well and actually almost ended up with that color. Now, you know the Carbon Black ones are faster right?

Congrats Blue. I just noticed another difference the 2009 has over the 2008. I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, but on you shot of the navigation screen, on the A/C controlls to turn on the rear A/C the 2009 says "Rear" the 2008 says "Aux". Just thought I would mention that. Looks really good!!! :thumb:

Is that really your plate or did you photo shop that?

Thanks all. Speed is not an issue with this one, although it has more power than my '95 Trans Am did stock!

Another 2008/09 difference. Good eye.

Which one? Could be. ;)

I just finished waxing it, and am gong with the lesser of two evils (cover or love bugs) and installing a LeBra front end cover. Pics to follow.

I was wondering that same exact thing just now. It looks pretty real. :)

Edited to add: Okay I looked at it again and it's totally photo-shopped. LOL The angle of the plate is wrong and you can see the cut corners. :p

Oh yeah, I knew that one was when I first looked at it. The other plate I had to look at it a second time.

Here are some after a waxing & during/after the LeBra installation:
LeBra install:











Not too difficult, just need a Phillips head screwdriver to loosen three screws per side in the wheel openings. Everything else clips into place. While no places list a 2009 fitment, if you use a 2008 you will get the above cover, which fits fine.

Post install:











One of my favorite angles, thinking of making one of these into a Christmas Card :) :




Old vs. new:





Definitely need some work on my Photoshop skills:

Some servers block photobucket. Are you checking the site from work?

Do you work for/at Dodge? I can post a picture of a Journey & maybe that will help. :p

Al of the pics are on Photobucket accounts... weird you can only see one. Do you see Dennis Farina (authorized) above?

:blob: :blob: :blob: I Can See!!!!!... Good Gawd... I felt like I was blind there for a little bit.. Congratulations on the new Ride Blue!
I think the photos of your Acadia sold me on the side steps or running boards. I'm going to start my research and see with ones come closest to factory. Yours are factory right?

By the way... I'm really, really, liking that 5 Series!!!

I'd be willing to bet that Mrs. Blue does not appreciate the burnouts that close to the house...




I'm not very good at photo-shopping either. LOL

I've just never been a fan of bras. They always seem to get in the way. :uzi:

ttwins-
Glad you can see the pics now! The boards are Sharpboards- I have an install sequence & photos in the Side Steps thread here.

Queen-
That is cool- the Challenger keeps getting larger though. Garage is pretty cramped as-is.

Guru-
I don't usually do the shopping for that type of stuff ;). We hit Victoria's Secret, but ended up at Rock Auto since they were the only one that had a size 2008 SLT in black! :p
